I feel like both Breaking Glass and What In The World would be better without the random electronic stuff. The guitar stands up well.
I wish Breaking Glass would be longer too.

I never got your complete thoughts on my playlist. What did you think overall?

I gave it a B, about the same as LeMel. I loved your first disc, but your second disc was a mixed bag, to me. Didn't like the first couple of songs, and didn't really feel like the live stuff worked all that well. Still, yours and LeMel's are pretty good.

Coincidentally or not, it's also the most famous song from the album.

Of the first four, Sound and Vision and Speed of Life are my two favorite songs.

Always Crashing In The Same Car's even better than Sound And Vision.

Be My Wife's got some good sounding music too.

Not sold on Bowie's voice.

I'm surprised by how short the songs are. Some could really use more length.

Always Crashing is my favourite so far. A New Career wasn't a bad instrumental.

Quite a noticeable change in sound from Side A to Side B with the start of Warszawa. If the rest of the song is as good as the first two minutes, this will be even better than Always Crashing. Also, nice to have a song that looks like it has a decent runtime!

Wow, Warszawa is very atmospheric. I like it. I actually think I still prefer Always Crashing, but this is also a favourite.

Tend to agree with most of this, though I've never really disliked Bowie's voice past some of his early albums.

Brian Eno co-wrote it, by the way.

I Bowie's voice...from the 70's at least. Not sure about it lately.
