Same. Lol. Took me forever to finally order it. None of the stores in my town carried the album, I was super disappointed. Yet, I've found super obscure albums in their clearance bin like the Discotheque, Last Night On Earth, Real Thing and a bunch of other U2 singles. Why they wouldn't carry the Bowie album is beyond me.

It sold out the first printing. Nobody expected it to sell as many copies as it did. Why would they?

I'm kicking myself for not pre-ordering it. It was on my list and for whatever reason I just didn't follow through. I think I was balking at the price at the time.

This article appeared on the Grantland site, which was shut down by ESPN a few months back. It's an e-mail exchange between two writers preparing a David Bowie obituary in response to a rumor that he was near death--in 2013. Some of their observations came so true...
The Nobituary: David Bowie «

I'm currently listening to Low for the first time. I like it so far. I'm especially eager to hear all the instrumentals.

"A New Career In A New Town" and "Subterraneans" are both some of my favorite Bowie tracks. Low is a wonderful album.

It is as wonderful as I've heard and read. It's one of those albums that you hear the first time then immediately play again. In fact, I'm losing some sleep just to listen to this again (and I do like my sleep).

:-)

Call me crazy, but I think U2 should cover Always Crashing In The Same Car. It reminds me of something of theirs but I can't think of what...maybe something off Zooropa?

You only live once, so if you're going to lose sleep, may as well lose it listening to one of the greatest albums of all time!
Anyone see the Bowie tribute at the grammy's? hate to be critical of someone who obviously meant well, but imo it was fucking awful! & can anyone enlighten me as to why lady gaga was the "obvious" choice according to some dimwit at the said show, to perform a tribute to Bowie in the first place.
That said, over here on this side of the pond, the brits are organising an "all star tribute" to Bowie, wonder who, & which songs they'll be butchering!

Most of this thread agreed she was a good and obvious choice a few pages ago when we discussed it, so you're pretty much calling all of us here dimwits as well.

Why would anybody think she was an obvious choice? She has nothing to do with Bowie. Her music doesn't show is influence in any way. She makes bland, generic corporate pop with visuals that suggest depth that isn't there. There are so many artists who would have been decent choices. There was no reason to choose her. Unless the thing had more to do with boosting the fortunes of an industry favorite who's career is not doing well...

It was a bizarre performance. Was she supposed to look like an Elvis impersonator?

The band was atrocious. Nile Rogers was a poor choice to lead the band. He worked on Bowie's biggest hit, but it would have been more fitting to use Carlos Alomar, who was Bowie's band leader during his best and most influential years and played with him off and on from 74-2002. Or Tony Visconti. And maybe having the band composed of people who were in Bowie's bands would have been a good idea. The cock rock version of "Heroes" was appalling. It was a terrible tribute in every way.

The Flaming Lips tribute was so much better.
