2 stars Not his best effort I'm afraid, in 1994 Fish was known as an artist who was producing progressive rock, and Suits simply wasn't that style of music. Maybe you can describe Suits as an eighties pop album in the nineties. "mr 1470", first track of the album has an interesting lyric about a very old skull and the music is sounding pretty mysterious as well. "Lady let it lie" was the first single of the album, it isn't bad but it'sn't a new Kayleigh. At the end of the track you can hear what the problem with the album is, the songs are too long as the last two minutes keep repeating the same melody over and over again. "Emperor's song" is bloody commercial crap and also "Fortunes of war" does nothing to me. "Somebody special" is one of the best tracks although it is a rock song. "No dummy" is one of the weakest points on the album and men can only hope the Scotsman won't record this shit ever again. "Pipeline" is a complex piece of music but you keep searching for a strong melody. Maybe the best tracks of the album are the three closing tracks : "Jumpsuit city" has very interesting social commentary as a lyric and this time the funk influences are fitting in the song. "Bandwagon" sounds as Fish backing band is a Jethro Tull in good shape. The highlight of the album is the emotional "raw meat" which changes from a ballad to a pop song with influences from soul (!). Overall this isn't a bad album, Fish tries to use some influences from other style of music but the result is a misplaced pop album.
