The ambitious follow up to their debut album, dog man star, is Suede's greatest record. Great songs, especially, the wild ones, and, we are the pigs, but there are other gems here in, daddy's speeding, the asphalt world, and the orchestral closing track, still life. Suede, and in particular Brett Anderson captures that feeling of being young and being an outsider in a big city, great British music.

for folks who haven't seen the Suede reissues from a few years back, one of the most interesting features is that for each album Brett gives a revised tracklist including some album tracks and some b-sides. it's interesting to see what changes he'd make now, after looking back at the songs years later.

Great album. Best 5 songs average is between 85/100 and 90/100. Because the album is rich in variety and I like this sound, I definitely rate it 90/100. Best songs are "New Generation" and "Still life" both 90/100, followed by "We are the pigs" and "The Wild Ones" both 85/100. Maybe there could be an even higher rating on the long run, when listen to it several times.

i quite liked the first Suede album, so i had high hopes for this one. but when i first heard it, i really wasn't a fan. it too quite a few years, but it eventually became my favorite Suede album. i'd definitely recommend the official Suede biography "Love & Poison" to fans of the band for insights into the making of Dog Man Star and the rest of their work.

This... I can't even describe how much I love this. Something about the sheer emotion in Anderson's voice, something about the slow melodious guitar work, something about the cohesive, depressing, yet breathtaking songs on this record give me chills every time. It has a certain air of desperation about it that makes me feel like I'm witnessing the destruction of something sacred. I guess what really gets me is the emotion of it all; whenever I need a good reality check, I come to Dog Man Star and let my feelings fly for an hour before i come back down to earth a little bit saner than I was before.

Suede's second album "Dog Star Man" was the group's second album and the last with guitarist Bernard Butler. The album marks an artistic peak in the group's career, although the big commercial breakthrough first came with sequel "Coming Up" from 1996.

The album contains three fine singles, of which especially "We are the Pigs" and the lush ballad "The Wild Ones" have become classics. The album is dominated by grand ballads which in addition to "The Wild Ones" count songs like "Still Life", "The Asphalt World", "Blask or Blue", "2 of Us" and "The Power" - especially the former two are highlights on a generally very complete and consistent album.

The deluxe edition contains besides various demos and live recordings a string of contemporary singles releases which include the catchy "My Dark Star" and the beautiful moving "The Living Dead".

Especially the acoustic "The Living Dead" is a personal favorite.
