Sometimes tension in the studio can remarkably create classic albums , The Beatles 'White Album' and Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' are cases in point. You can also add Sued's 'Dog Man Star' to that list

Rehearsals for 'Dog Man Star' were very tense and would split the band into two separate camps. Bernard Butler had his own agenda (an example of which was a 25 minute version of "Asphalt World" which included an 8 minute guitar solo) and frequently clashed with the rest of the band and producer Ed Buller eventually leaving the sessions with the album far from completion . That the album was not only completed but is so darn good is mind blowing

Personally I prefer the cock sure swagger of their debut but 'D.M.S' is close behind with its glam rock , Bowie influenced grandness . It's not quite a masterpiece due to the weaker tracks "Daddy's Speeding" and "Black or Blue" but it sits comfortably as one of the 1990's best albums

Incredible

"Still Life" is such an epic song and it's really sad that the rest of the album does not play on the same high level. The album is full of promises but most songs sound more like early demos than finalized tracks. And the audio quality is not very good. I prefer the "Dog Man Star 20th Anniversary Live" album because the Royal Albert Hall performance is much better than the original album recording (album rating: 47,08 %)

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.
