BBC Review

After the party - the hangover: One year on from the louche-but-rocking debut, Suede had begun to irrevocably fracture at their very core. Luckily, out of such travails are great works of art born.

By this point the chemistry (in all senses) was becoming a little strained. Retreating into a drug-assisted solitude, Brett Anderson's lyrics were less concerned with the politics of modern love and more with the effects of the morning after. Solitude, paranoia and self-loathing were the themes here. When he sings 'If you stay we'll be the wild ones!' it's with a quiet desperation that's clinging to a lifestyle that's gone horribly wrong.

The downbeat mood pervades everything here. Even on peppier rockers like 'The Hollywood Life' or 'New Generation' the guitars of Bernard Butler here sound more spiteful, suffused with a vicious metallic edge. It was here that they formerly parted from the Britpop pack as well ('I don't care for the UK tonight' sings Brett on 'Black And Blue').

At the heart of this album is the real-life drama of Anderson's and Butler's increasing alienation. Before the album had even been mixed the pair, once touted as a Lennon and McCartney for the post-E generation, had split. Butler subsequently told of how he turned up to the studio one day to find all his equipment outside the locked door.

Yet, while Dog Man Star stands as a testament to the destructive power of thrill-seeking love and ego-bloating drugs it remains a far deeper and sonically adventurous ride than its predecessor. There's still a huge dollop of Scott Walker-meets-Bowie-in-the-streets-of-Soho-at-5-in-the-morning archness that can grate. And Anderson's melodrama can be slightly over-egged on tracks like 'The 2 Of Us', yet with its reverb-drenched lushness and fabulously melancholy audio verite ambience (virtually every track is prefaced by or marbled with some low-key moodiness that recalls Talk Talk's golden period) it's an album that continues to fascinate and reward: It's possibly their least dated work.

While the band struggled heroically (and succeeded) to consolidate their success after Butler's departure the legend of the band's lost potential really stems from Dog Man Star. Never had misery sounded so alluring, reaching out to all the lonely urbanites that ever woke up alone. For this alone it remains timeless. --Chris Jones

One of the most seminal records of the '90s, "dog man star" is celebrating 20 years since its 1994 original release. Presented as an expansive multi-format super deluxe edition collector's box set, this is a lavish and fittingly extravagant anniversary album release. Not as comprehensive as one would expect, it features most of the tracks from the 2011 3-disc edition, omitting much that could have been included in order to make this a perfect 20th anniversary release (promo videos, tour footage, demos etc). That 2CD+DVD 2011 set remains the most complete. This new box set is clearly aimed at die-hard fans, being a high quality set, really well-put together, a fantastic collectible. I had originally ordered a copy from Suede's website because I wanted the limited to 500 copies only alternate orange cover edition, but was not lucky. By ordering from Suede's website, you also got an exclusive 12" vinyl of "Stay together". Except for these extras, both that edition and amazon's are identical, so, I am pleased. Dark, desperate, reclusive, claustrophobic, elegiac and romantic, this startling sophomore is a musical masterpiece. Though being Suede's second least commercially successful album (behind "A new morning"), it is widely considered as their finest work. As with previous Suede box sets, this is likely to sell out before you say Brettpop, so hurry up, you do not want to miss out on this!Read more ›

Four or five years ago, there was minimal, if any, talk about Suede - they seemed to have slipped into Britpop's dustbin, despite having preceded said "movement" by a couple of years. Thank goodness, then, that they reformed and their fans have decided to remind themselves of how brilliant they actually were.
Like it or not, there were two Suedes and this release represents the peak of the first - an extraordinary, self-contained suite of darkly glamorous, dislocated torch songs for a post-everything universe. It's important to remind 2011 of exactly how ambitious and isolated Suede were in 1994 - against a backdrop of chirpy indie-pop and stadium-eyeing mundanity, they created an album so audibly crepuscular that the group's fracture was immediately understandable on the first listen. Brett Anderson's lyrics are amongst his best - whilst they are certainly dystopian and, in places, all too redolent of 4am substance psychosis (the creepy, immersive "Daddy's Speeding"), they are playful ("Introducing The Band") and truly soulful - "The Wild Ones" is so strikingly compassionate as to instantly render virtually all their supposed contemporaries hackneyed and lame. Bernard Butler's dilemma is laid particularly bare on this new edition - the previously unheard longer versions of "The Wild Ones" and "The Asphalt World" show him at his most indulgent and his most thrillingly expressive respectively. The fact that the dirty glam thrash of "This Hollywood Life" and the tragic, lonely piano ballad "The 2 of Us" sit side by side on this album is a perfect illustration of the scope and talent these writers possessed together.

Having finally managed to absorb all five of these deluxe re-releases I can now review each of them.
There were probably only four major Britpop bands during the genre's mid 90's explosion, but dozens and dozens of lesser lights trailing in their wake (in this respect it was somewhat like punk); these four were Oasis, Blur, Pulp and Suede. Suede were the first of these, although it's perhaps an exaggeration to say that they invented the genre as it would have happened anyway. Blur and Oasis broke through within a few months of Suede's first album, whilst Pulp had been around in one form or another for many years predating all the others and had released some records, although they remained unknown until Britpop. However despite this Suede are acknowledged as the first Britpop band and for me they were always probably the most interesting of the big four. It cannot be denied however that they declined commercially extremely quickly and were superseded by Blur and especially by Oasis. Suede's Singles collection released in 2003 after the band had split didn't even make the top thirty (although I don't think Pulp's Greatest Hits released around the same time fared much better), whilst nowadays it's impossible to virtually give their albums away. I should know as no one seems to want to even offer 10p for the original releases of their final two albums which I have been trying to offload having bought these new editions.

Anyone with any interest in Suede will have heard the music on the original albums so it is perhaps sensible to concentrate mainly on the extra material included in these reissues. However before doing so I would make a few comments about the albums themselves.
