SUEDE Released Their Masterpiece Album ‘ DOG MAN STAR’ 25 Years Ago…

Classics from the past

10 October 2019

25 years ago, on 10 October 1994, British rockers SUEDE released their magnum opus DOG MAN STAR. Their second and final album with guitarist and co-songwriter Bernard Butler who left even before the final recordings were over. It’s a fabulous record with a series of outstanding songs that went much farther than the Britpop label. David Bowie and Roxy Music‘s glam and glitter influences were obvious but in the end it was a 100% Suede album in all its theatrical and melodramatic structure and resonance with Brett Anderson as the bona fide rock star in the middle. Definitely my favorite Suede LP.

All Music wrote: “As it stands, Dog Man Star is a strangely seductive record, filled with remarkable musical peaks, from the Bowie-esque stomp of “New Generation” to the stately ballads “The Wild Ones” and “Still Life,” which are both reminiscent of Scott Walker. And while Suede may choose to wear their influences on their sleeve, they synthesize them in a totally original way, making Dog Man Star a singularly tragic and romantic album.”
