Coming Up was every bit the triumphant comeback Brett Anderson and company were expecting and it was a terrific little record, but it Rockin Horse - Sara Evans - Born To Fly/Restless (CD, Album, Album) suggest that Suede had begun to reach the limits of Ed Buller Waiting For The Train To Come In - Duke Ellington And His Orchestra - The Treasury Shows Vol.14 production ideas, while also feeling a little superficial.
The very fact that its sequel was produced by Steve Osbornethe man behind classics LPs from New Order and Happy Mondayssuggested they were returning to the dark undercurrents of their first two records, yet Head Music is Coming Up, Pt. Working with Osborne has added some vague elements of electronic and dance music to Suede 's signature sound, but these primarily manifest themselves in the form of gurgling analog synths and canned, old-school drum machines.
