Fripp was asked to play on it, declined, then wrote about it on his blog? Not cool.

Sounds like the cover may still be a joke.

He didn't address my question: "What the fuck is wrong with you?"

Can we all just talk for a moment about how goddamn good "Heroes" is? The only thing that stops it from being my #1 Bowie album is that the title track aside it's not emotionally gripping, like its predecessor.

But hot damn, if Beauty and the Beast, Joe the Lion, Sons of the Silent Age, Blackout and Secret Life of Arabia aren't five of the best songs ever then I don't know music.

And V-2 Schneider is cool. Plus the three instrumentals are pretty good too, love those tortured horns in Neukoln.

I'M UNDER JAPANESE INFLUENCE AND MY HONOUR'S AT STAKE

It was my favorite album of his forever, until too many people told me I wasn't supposed to like it that much and then I started getting too critical of it (because I am an impressionable person). It's still like my 3rd or 4th favorite, it's not like I've disowned it.

I am embarrassed by how much I love "Moss Garden".

I really don't care for the second half. I wish I did. The first half is absolutely brilliant, forward-thinking rock that sounds totally unique.

For my money, Low has much better instrumentals, though it's lacking a monster track like Heroes' title track.

Secret Life of Arabia might be one of my favourite David Bowie songs.






Then again it might not. No, but I do enjoy it a lot.

That is a large part of the charm of Low for me - i.e. that it feels like a cluster of sketches that just serendipitously became a brilliant, cohesive album. Nothing about it feels premeditated in terms of looking for radio or commercial success.

Speed of Life and New Career, certainly. Subterraneans too. But I'll take Sense of Doubt>Moss Garden>Neukoln over Warszawa>Art Decade>Weeping Wall any day.

You are pretty much asking me to choose between my non-existent children when comparing the instrumentals on each album.

That's how I feel when asked to rank his albums. Impossible.

I just realized Low never made it on to my new laptop. I have to rectify this.
