It's a light, throwaway song, but it's not too terrible.

It makes some of his post-Labyrinth, pre-Nine Inch Nails resuscitation work look amazing.

Well I just listened to Hunky Dory.

It's not the worst song I have ever heard, but I still don't like it.

Now everyone talk to about Hereos and Low please.

LMP 09-21-2007 09:14 PM

Low is without a doubt one of the best experiences I have when I listen to an album.

It's the Bowie-equivalent of Kid A.

I listened to it... it's quite a depature from the stuff I like. I don't know. It's all very weird to me... bit too much instrumental for me to call it a great album...

This'll take some time.

I liked Always Crashing in the Same Car though. Awesome title.

Were Low/Heroes/Lodger his cocaine days?

I think his cocaine days lasted longer than 3 albums...

Why does Lodger always get overlooked? I think it's a really underrated album. It's like he took the experimentalism of the first two albums and fused it with better songcraft. I think people that really enjoyed the other two albums see this as a shift back toward the "normal", but it had to happen eventually. To me it's the most listenable of the three, and because there are no instrumentals, it seems more of a proper album to me, even if it doesn't have a standout song like Sound and Vision or Heroes.

Lodger is solid, it's just a shame that it's between 2 of his classic albums:

Low and Scary Monsters.

Has anyone heard Philip Glass's Low and "Heroes" Symphonies?

I downloaded an Aphex Twin remix that blends Bowie's vocals over Glass's "Heroes" part of the symphony and it sounds mindblowingly awesome.

Sound and Vision isn't doing it for me.

My favourite song from Low so far is Speed of Life, and by quite a distance too.

Question to those with Bowie knowledge...what are ten good Bowie songs to start with. Note that I've already got Starman, "Heroes," and Space Oddity.

cobl04 09-22-2007 10:24 PM

Whoever the drummer is on Low needs to be congratulated. Awesome! :drool:
