Product Description

Product Description

Released in October 1994, Dog Man Star was Suede's second studio album. The album was recorded in London at Master Rock studios in early 1994 and was produced by Ed Buller. It was the last Suede album to feature guitarist Bernard Butler, due to growing tensions between him and singer Brett Anderson ending with Butler leaving the band before the album was completed. Although it did not sell on the same scale as their chart-topping debut, Dog Man Star reached number three on the UK Album Chart and was certified as gold by the BPI in November 1994.

Amazon.co.uk

After being declared the "Best New Band In Britain" and having their glam-pop debut album go Gold in a matter of weeks, Suede were under enormous pressure to make their follow-up album just as much of a media event. And in a way, they did--Brett Anderson retreating to his Gothic basement in Highgate and penning half an album's worth of apocalyptic visions; Bernard Butler pulling out an arsenal of ferocious Zeppelin riffery and baroque pedal-stomping before quitting the band three weeks before the album was completed. As a result, parts of Dogmanstar sound half-finished: "We Are The Pigs" is never as great as it thinks it is, and the random bursts of radio transmissions on "The Power" only ever sound like a big Butler-solo-shaped hole. But the grandeur, darkness and totality of Dogmanstar always out-weigh any niggles: "New Generation" would gladden the dead, and "Still Life" is never anything other than ravishing. --Caitlan Moran

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 ›

One of the most seminal records of the '90s, by one of the best bands from that decade, is celebrating 20 years since its original release. Reissued and presented as an expansive multi-format super deluxe edition collector's box set, this is the one of the most lavish and -fittingly- extravagant anniversary album releases. However, it is not as comprehensive as one would have thought, featuring most of the tracks from the 2011 3-disc edition, but omitting much that could have been included in order to make this a perfect 20th anniversary release (promo videos, tour footage, demos etc). The 2CD+DVD 2011 set shall suffice for most. This new box set is clearly aimed at die-hard fans, and for what it is offering, is a high quality set, really well-put together, a fantastic collectible. I'd 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'm still happy. 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 ›

...and Johnny Marr pops around for a spot of tea.By the sounds of things they weren't just drinking tea...
Dog Man Star is truly sensational. When one compares this effort to what immediately preceded and proceeded it (in Britain at least), nothing else compares with the over-produced, orchestral bombast (notably on Still Life), the claustraphobic intensity (The Two of Us), and brooding menace(Asphalt World) which it exudes. A tip: listen to the latter track whilst driving around a hole of a town, perhaps Weston Super Mare, very late at night. You might have to lock the doors and windows of your car and/or not stop at traffic lights, but it is worth it in order to soak up the seedy atmosphere of low-rent, burnt-out, drug-frazzled 'glam'. It works best if your car is a shitty old Ford (either an Escort or a Probe for apt comedy value).
The Asphalt World aside, the rest of the album, as another reviewer mentioned, is best heard through headphones on a Discman turned up to a level not entirely healthy for one's ears. Even if you do go deaf as a result, chances are there's nothing much worth listening to after having sat through Suede's sophomore set.
While it would be thoroughly misleading to say that the album is one of light and shade (it is unrelentingly bleak), it is characterised by a variety of different styles. Unlike, say, Coldplay, who have two modes (1.bland, and 2.paint-dryingingly, fist-eatingingly, nondescript vapidity), Suede run the gamut from up-tempo glam-rocking in New Generation, through fuzz-guitar-enhanced Smithsian janglepop (Heroine), ending up with the overblown chamber music of Still Life.
