Tonight and Never Let Me Down are his absolutely worst records.

Blue Jean, Loving the Alien and Time Will Crawl are absolutely wonderful songs.

The version of Time Will Crawl from the iSelect comp, naked of 80's style production is even more wonderful. I recommend listening.

So, Atomica sounds like a Lodger-Scary Monsters track. Loving it so far.

Yeaaaaah, this.

I was just putting together a playlist of random music, when I came across a stark reminder of something:



The man has certainly been guilty of horrible album covers before.

Wow, that's not real, is it? That's bad by the standards of fan created ms paint job from the days when people made geocities sites.

I'm not sure Best Of collections likely compiled by record company execs should have their album covers judged on artistic merit and blamed on the artist.

Maybe not the artist's, but surely a label executive could just get their 5 year old to fingerprint something less awful than that.

This is ChangesBowie, though. It's like the Best of 1980-90 of his career. I gotta think that he at least signed off on this at some point.

I thought those covers were rereleases and the awful cover was the original, was I incorrect?

I bought ChangesBowie on CD in 1990 when it was released. It has that collage cover Ashley posted.

It didn't really bother me at the time, but that was the pre-GeoCities world.

So ChangesBowie predates those other two, because the second version didn't exist yet, right?

Anyways, my cassette tape copy is the horrible collage.

And it's funny, it didn't bother me at all until I saw it yesterday and really looked at it. Then I couldn't stop laughing.

ChangesBowie was a later compilation that covered tracks from One and Two.

So the cover is even more egregious.

I've got it from back then too. Hadn't really thought about how bad the cover was. Funny how that works

You know when you read something, and it makes you notice something that you didn't before, and then you can't un-notice it? Yeah...
