I have to find Beav's instructions on drinking Powerjuice, with the slamming it down on the table and yelling at someone out in the office. That was awesome.

I think having three opinions on something is about as many as you'd want anyway.
So it'll be a funnier, updated version of this, basically:

David Bowie

Khan, I do hope you've checked your Wikipedia page in the last few minutes.

It's my favourite REM song.

It's the extended version that has nine tracks, including three versions of the title track and two of something with the word Moon in it.

Somewhat, yes. Hopefully we're a little more generous to our man David Bowie, though.

The 3.5 stars for Low was pretty funny.

What kind of scale do you want to use for grading? I nominate letter grades to remove the decimal point issue.

That's fine as long as we clear up whether there are E's or not. I can't remember what the norm is. My school uses A, B, C, E, and F, skipping D.

You have the two disc remastered version.

The first disc is the original album as released in the UK and other parts of the world.

However, when released in the US for the first time, they added Stars Die after The Sky Moves Sideways, Phase 1. And that's the best version of the album. Why the remastered version puts it as part of the bonus disc is mindboggling.

When you listen to it, if you can, move Stars Die.

The other songs on the second disc are not part of the actual album (although an edit of Moonloop was also included at one point, and while I thought that adding Moonloop would work, I think I prefer the really long version on its own).

Ah, cool. The Alternate Version of the title track is essentially the two separate phases put together, though it does have some differences.

For a first time listen, I'd probably recommend just listening to the first five tracks (i.e. TSMS Phase 1, Dislocated Day, The Moon Touches Your Shoulder, Prepare Yourself, and TSMS Phase 2), Stars Die, and the shorter Moonloop.

For me, no E's. Never even heard of such a thing, to be honest with you.
