well, [perhaps] he's referring to the fact that Brian Eno's influence is obviously rampant throughout Side 2 of said record.

David Bowie is one of my favorites of all time.

I love to listen to Queen Bitch and so much more while I'm cleaning the house. Turn the music up and just go.

I love that man!!

Oh, not to mention Queen Bitch, Quicksand, Rock and Roll Suicide, Starman, Ashes To Ashes, Fashion, Golden Years, Breaking Glass....

I think Breaking Glass has been in my regular playlist rotation for about...forever now.

Anyway I find I am drawn to artists who, like U2, have had long, long careers with many different phases. Bowie's great, if I'm in a punky mood I go for the earlier stuff, 80s mood I go for the later stuff, and if I'm in a BRIAN ENO MOOD I go for the late 70s stuff


EDIT: But really, isn't ANY mood a good mood to be in a Brian Eno mood?

I am the same way for the most part... U2, Beatles, REM, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Radiohead. Okay, the last 2 haven't exactly had very long careers yet but they've made some fucking good experimental music!

I'm not too sure about Bowie though. I bought the Best Of (2 disc set) and listened to it a couple of times. While songs like Space Oddity, Man Who Sold, Changes, Life On Mars, Moonage Daydream, Ziggy, Rebel Rebel, Sound And Vision etc are amazing, other ones like All The Young Dudes, Young Americans, Cat People, Jean Genie, Fashion etc. seem to bore me to death! Do they grow on you or what?

My brother bought this one for me several years ago and I couldn't listen to it without laughing. Some of the lyrics are really quite awful (Yak butter statues melt in the sun," or "Baby, I'll slay a dragon for you, or banish wicked giants from the land", just to mention a couple) yet now it's really grown on me and I actually enjoy listening to it now and again, though I still can't listen to "There Is a Happy Land". It's definitely a very different sound from what most Bowie fans are used to.

most Bowie Fans will be very used to the sound of There Is A Happy Land, along with Uncle Arthur, Little Bombadier, Sell Me A Coat, etc,

Well maybe he is, but Eno's influence is nowhere to be found on classics such as Stationtostation, Diamond Dogs, Ziggy, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Scary Monsters, The Man Who Sold The World,etc. Don't over estimate Eno's contirbution to the legacy Bowie has given to the world.

Ok, let me rephrase that, most Bowie fans that I am personally acqauinted with have not been used to the sound on his first album. Happy?
