Look, I know, their first album is phenomenal, and absolutely deserves to be heralded as a classic, but why do so many people act like it's the only fucking Suicide album? Their other records are so good! A similar thing has happened to lots of bands - first album is a groundbreaking classic, and no one fully gets down with anything they do afterwards - but not to the degree of Suicide. Like, Psychocandy is the only JAMC record that gets accolades, but at least people acknowledge their other albums. For the record, I love Darklands, Automatic, and Honey's Dead.

Produced by Ric Ocasek, Suicide's Alan Vega and Martin Rev pick up exactly where they left off, crafting beautifully ominous drone-rock founded on pulsing sequences, dramatic vocals, and dense atmospherics. Track Listing - Disc 1. Title/Composer.

Suicide is the debut album from the American rock band Suicide. It was released in 1977 on Red Star Records and produced by Craig Leon and Marty Thau. The album was recorded in four days at Ultima Sound Studios in New York and featured Martin Rev's minimalist electronics and harsh, repetitive rhythms paired with Alan Vega's rock and roll-inspired vocals and depictions of urban life.

Way Of Life includes Jukebox Baby, a different version of which appears on Alan Vega's 1981 solo album. Wild In Blue is an atmospheric electronic number, whilst Surrender is a sixties style love song with lovely female vocals, not too far from Elvis or Frankie Valli. This original version of Jukebox Baby 96 is slower than the aforementioned track on Vega's solo album, but still full of urgency, that pumping rockabilly beat and Vega's excited gasps and shrieks. It perhaps better reflects the awesome power of Suicide at their best, and makes this CD an essential purchase for fans. But A Way Of Life does not represent the best of this great pioneering band.

A Way of Life was originally released in 1988; Why Be Blue? in 1992. They are mid-career documents that find the band struggling to succeed (commercially) and struggling with (critical) success. For both Life and Blue, Rev and Vega returned to the studio with Ric Ocasek, who also produced their second album, and applied a glossier finish to the blood-spattered Suicide coat. However, the two continued to push the bar, bloody thorn-stemmed roses affixed in their mouths.
