The solo kills that song for me. A lot of people love it, but I just think it's way too much, and, in a lot of parts, doesn't fit the song well.

Aladdin Sane lets itself down in the chorus department for me. Those verses are very worthy but the chrous kinda kills it for me, doesn't sound right. Kind of agree with phil on the piano solo too. Well. Not agree but I can see where he's comin from.

Cracked Actor this round.

As long as that, DIS and WTM get in I'm happy.

Oh, but Danny, the lyrics of the chorus...

Battle cries and champagne, just in time for sunrise
Who'll love a lad insane

Oh don't get me wrong, I still think the chorus is awesome, infatti "who will love aladdin sane" is my myspace "status" at the moment. I just don't think they quite match up to the awesomeness of the verses.

This dilemma is like the opposite of what i normally encounter with Bowie. He has a habit of making fantastic hooks.

Is it absolutely meant to be taken as "a lad insane"?

By the way my VU&N review is up I think I'll either do Wish You Were Here of Joshua Tree next.

I really didn't like Aladdin sane. That weird sound that didn't fit, I think it was piano, killed it for me

Drive-in

Oh I am very much looking forward to reading that. Is it possible for a review to sound more coherent than the object which it is reviewing??
