  1. 8.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Anderson has his Mojo back with Black Rainbows, and the return of his dark, glamorous strutting is graciously welcome

  2. 8.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Proof that the Man Who Would Be Morrissey has not lost his dreary mojo
    Read Review

  3. 7.0 |   music OMH

    While a good half of the album demonstrates a genuine songwriting nous, other elements hint at a mere rehashing of old Suede ideas

  4. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Whilst it’s obviously no Dog Man Star, Brett Anderson’s tenth round rings the bell for a local hero with spirit reborn, heart aflame, trash talkin’ and eyeing the prize once more

    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   Q

    It is unashamedly Suede-esque. Print edition only

    A clutch on mid-tempo rockers that scrub up nicely
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   Mojo

    He has said there's no future in Suede unless they make a new album: Black Rainbows is a pretty good dress rehearsal. Print edition only

  10. 5.8 |   Pitchfork

    Sees Anderson - after three relatively sullen and sedate solo releases - cautiously reconnecting with his suppressed pop-star swagger

  11. 5.0 |   Clash

    Let down by pristine sessionmen
    Read Review

  12. 4.0 |   Uncut
