Suede - Dog Man Star (1994)
Deluxe 2cd/dvd set - June 2011 release review.

Now this may sound silly but to be honest I've not understood the allure of deluxe package before this. I was almost tempted with Pulp's His and Hers and Radiohead's Kid A, but nothing got me going quite as much as when I saw this 2CD/DVD set listed... my heart began to quicken.

This album means a lot to me... Dog Man Star was originally released on my 20th birthday in October 1994. I was a massive Suede fan, having adored their first album as a sixth form student, especially getting lost in the majestic playing of a certain guitarist named Bernard Butler.

Earlier in February 1994, as the charms of Boo Radleys much under appreciated Giant Steps was tempting me away, Suede released the stop gap single Stay Together (finally remastered and released here in almost all it's glory on Disc 2). I found this single just staggering. Being an undergraduate and a cassette man to boot it was the first CD single I ever bought to get the full length version of the single and the extra track (how many bands at the time were worth doing that for?). I taped it and proceeded to wear out my Sony Walkman listening to it. Many say Oasis are the b-sides band, but then these folk have never heard or understood Suede, who set the standard in the 90s. I spent many happy hours on the top deck of buses around Leicester listening with wonder to the guitar heaven of the last 4 minutes of Stay Together, an ingenious, crazed rock opera, or the delicate desperation and beauty of The Living Dead (lyrically along with Still Life Brett's finest moment), OR the soaring majesty of My Dark Star (how many guitarists bother to write a bloomin great solo for the 2nd b-side?).

I agree with the other review - Dog Man Star requires a few listens, but it will grow on you until you recognise it for what it is - a masterpiece, one of the greatest albums of the 1990s.
No other "Britpop band", if you can call Suede that, were making
music this ambitious, emotionally dramatic or powerful in 1994.
Brett Anderson is one of music's most remarkable vocalists - if you're in any doubt, take one listen to the album's closing track,"Still Life", one of the most climactic pieces of music I've ever heard. Put this song on and play it LOUD...This album is not for people who prefer lightweight, unchallenging pop. It contains some lush orchestral
arrangements, ambient Bowie-ish strangeness in "Daddy's Speeding", the lush romanticism of "The Wild Ones" and the jump-up-and-down anthem "New Generation". This is one of my two favourite albums of all time. The other is the first Suede album!
Suede have been criminally underrated in comparison with bands like Blur and Oasis. But in the early days of Britpop at least, Suede ran rings around these two bands, producing two albums of breathtaking beauty.

One can only wonder what Suede would have go on to achieve if Anderson andButler had not fallen out. The debut and this spectral masterpiece of analbum could easily stand up to any bands first two albums ever, TheBeatles and The Smiths included. Dog Man Star is very much a winter album.Lyrically it is a very paranoid, reclusive piece. It is alleged that Brettlocked himself in his flat in the middle of nowhere with a mountain ofL.S.D. to write it. Bernard's guitar work is incredibly atmospheric anddense, particularly on the near-ten minute Asphalt World the final cut ofwhich upset him due to it's severe edit! God knows what the demos musthave sounded like. By a mile suede's finest album, it is an undeniablyEnglish work, Syd Barrett, Julian Cope, Kate Bush, and yes, Bowie and theSmiths are all in there somewhere. There are a few up beat glam-stompers,New Generation being the best up-beat number, but most of the set isdrug-addled and claustrophobic. Daddy's Speeding is the oddest track, afeedback entrenched eno-style piece about James Dean that eventuallycollapses under it's own weight. The opener Introducing the Band couldalmost be off Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and Heroine surely IS a DavidBowie song. The reason Dog Man Star is such a work of genius though, isthe last four tracks. Roughly 25 minutes of music that is so enormous thatif Brett and Bernard had stayed together, they would have probably landedon the moon. The 2 Of Us is a dark, sparse romantic ballad written about apossibly imaginary lover, Black or Blue is another drug track which couldbe out of a particularly creepy West End musical, The Asphalt World iscolossal and features Butler's best ever guitar work and closer Still Lifeis the last track because it simply can't be followed, so vast andglorious is the orchestral outro.Read more ›

I ordered my copy from Suede's website because I wanted the limited to 500 copies only alternative orange cover edition. Also, by ordering from Suede's website, an exclusive 12" vinyl of "Stay together" comes as well. Amazon's edition of the box set features the original cover, other than that both editions are identical. As with previous Suede box sets, this is likely to sell out before you say Brettpop, so hurry up, you don't want to miss out!
