The 1996 long-player shoved two fingers in the air to critics who predicted Suede were a spent force after Bernard Butler had departed (shortly before 1994’s Dog Man Star was completed) and achieved something the previous album hadn’t, by being a big commercial success with an incredible five top ten hit singles during the 1996/7. a b Paine, Andre (9 July 2021). "Suede sign to BMG for new album". Music Week. Archived from the original on 9 July 2021 . Retrieved 9 July 2021.I began writing this retrospective with the fear that I was going to end up trashing (pun intended) an album that I once loved dearly. But when I sat down to listen to it again, I realised that it was the first time in a long time that I actually had done so. I have heard so many of the songs, particularly the singles, so often over the years in other contexts that I had almost completely stopped returning to the original source. In the same way that we all start to forget how good a song like Dancing Queen is because we’ve been listening to Jeanette from round the corner howling it drunkenly every Friday night for the last 30 years, I had forgotten many of the reasons why I loved this record in the first place. Listening to it fresh again, and immersing myself in the absurdity of its shiny gutter glamour, turned out to be nowhere near as bad as I had feared. In fact, it was pretty damn great.

The musical sound of Coming Up is more accessible than previous album Dog Man Star. Its singles were much more successful than those of their second LP, while the lyrical content concerns the band's disaffection at the mid-90s hedonistic, celebrity-obsessed culture; " Beautiful Ones" and "She" are caricatures of British yuppies, celebrities and heroin-chic models. "Beautiful Ones" was originally titled "Dead Leg" after Osman threatened to give Oakes a dead leg if he was unable to write a top ten single. [9] According to Anderson, "The Chemistry Between Us" is about "the emptiness of it all", when it comes to taking drugs with strangers who have no common ground other than being high on drugs. [10] The main refrain of the song is " Class A, Class B, is that the only chemistry between us." Music: Interview with Suede". Jon Cronshaw. 13 October 2013.
