5.0 out of 5 stars Suede's masterpiece, 10 Jun 2011
This review is from: Dog Man Star [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Like, I suspect, most purchasers of this item, I already own Dog Man Star and Sci-Fi Lullabies. However, I am always happy to replace what I have for remastered and deluxe editions. While the remastered and deluxe edition of Suede's eponymous debut covered all the b-sides already compiled on Sci-Fi Lullabies, and the odd one which escaped that compilation, the b-sides for New Generation appear to have been left off this remasterd and deluxe edition of Dog Man Star. I presume this is because they were the first to feature Richard Oakes, rather than Bernard Butler, and so they will likely appear on the remastered and deluxe edition of Coming Up. I also note that the "long" version of Stay Together on the second disc appears to be at least a minute shorter than the long version on the actual single. Admittedly, much of that outro was noise, but this "long" version could at least have carried on a further 10-15 seconds to include the piano - which I thought was a pretty and fitting end to the song. These concerns aside, this is an awesome compilation. Dog Man Star is almost universally acclaimed as Suede's best album, and I not one to disagree. The extra tracks accompanying the album over the two cds are for the most part as good, if not better, than the album itself. I feel there is not a lot more to say which has not already been said, particularly as I am likely to be preaching to the converted. However, on the off-chance there is some reader new to Suede reading this review, and you are thinking of buying just one Suede album to hear what they were all about - this is that one. Check out the other reviews, then put the album in your shopping cart. This remastered and deluxe edition is great value for money, and I have not even sampled the DVD yet...
