All I have by Bowie is the stuff I've gotten from DI+China Girl.

Agreed. I think we can all agree that New Career In A New Town deserves a guaranteed spot.

Yeah, the only song that's worth anything from Let's Dance is Modern Love, and the other two late 80s albums have been dismissed by Bowie himself.

I always hear good things about Outside, Heathen, and Reality.

I wish I had more money for this. I really want to get The Man Who Sold the World, Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters.

I wonder what edition of the album Amazon has? Its release is rather confusing.
It's 2 disc, 8 tracks, about 150 minutes. I don't remember the exact specs.

I've noticed that of everybody I've introduced to PT, Collapse The Light has consistently been a big favourite.

Heathen and Earthling are pretty good too. Earthling is hard to get into but in the end quite good.

You're right though 80's Bowie except Scary Monsters should be avoided.

The first seven tracks of Low are pure bliss.

Usually I don't like it when an artist dismisses part of their career (see U2) but in Bowie's case I can see where he is coming from.

Ah, cool, sounds like the 2004 re-release then, which is the definitive version. Though it's nine tracks.

CD 1
1. The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase One)
2. Dislocated Day
3. The Moon Touches Your Shoulder
4. Prepare Yourself
5. The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase Two)

CD 2
1. The Sky Moves Sideways (Alternate Version)
2. Stars Die
3. Moonloop (Improvisation)
4. Moonloop (Coda)

CD2 #1 is over 34 minutes long. I love that it brings together the two phases of the song, but it's not for everyone. CD1 #1 and #5 and CD2 #3 are all over 16 minutes long.

Stars Die is a classic of psychedelic-era Porcupine Tree and is the first song the band ever got played on the radio.

Listening to the album now. Holy shit I love the psychedelic start to TSMS Phase One.

Low >>>>>>>> Heroes.

I'm sorry, but the non-instrumental tracks on Heroes simply cannot stand up to Low's non-instrumental tracks...outside of the title track of course. That's a classic.

Oh wow, almost new thread time. Who's making it and are we going to Orange Free State or elsewhere?
