BEST ALBUM SINCE SCARY MONSTERS!!!!!

 
Only because I wouldn't give Let's Dance, Outside, Heathen or Reality higher than a 7 and haven't heard any others
 
But Next Day is still really good/fun, probably an 8/10 for me

Outside and Heathen are both better than The Next Day AND Scary Monsters.

Scary Monsters is terribly uneven as an album. The singles are brilliant (Ashes to Ashes is a top 3 Bowie song for me), but the rest kinda sucks, specially side two, IMO.

Yea, i know it's very uncool to say this, but i prefer Let's Dance over Scary Monsters. The singles are brilliant and the rest is very good. The only weak songs are Ricochet and Shake It.

I really didn't like Outside. It meant well, but it's far too long and disjointed and a bunch of the tracks go nowhere. I like Heathen a lot but isn't as vibrant or refreshing as Scary Monsters or Next Day. Let's Dance and Reality's flaws are well documented, but I enjoy both well enough.

I definitely get an eighties vibe coming from this record...

To this day I've never heard all of NLOTH, but Get On Yer Sexy Boots was enough to disabuse me of any such notions.

Get on Your Boots is better (the music at least, the lyrics, well...) than half of the other tracks on NLOTH if you ask me.

"Stand Up Comedy" remains one of the most laughable pieces of dog shit I've heard from any band. It makes "Get On Your Boots" look like it belongs on Abbey Road.

And I can't download iTunes at the office because god only knows why, so no Bowie for me.

Stand Up Comedy is truly the shittiest thing on that album. I don't know what they were thinking, but I doubt it was translated to record the way they wanted it to be. I can't conceive of any band truly being happy with something that shitty and incompetent, except maybe The Shaggs.

NLOTH and Breathe and MOS and Fez and Cedars though

Yeah, the idea of even including Let's Dance in that list of otherwise creative albums is so wrong.

And Scary Monsters is also overrated, simply for being better than the subpar Tonight and Never Let Me Down.

I'll take Tin Machine and the 90's and 00's albums (save for "Hours...") over all four of those 80's albums.

Hours sucks badly.

You'd take Black Tie White Noise over Scary Monsters and Let's Dance?

Ok, forgot that one.

Though it does have some great tracks on it. And I love the Morrissey cover.

Someone's been posting the songs individually on YouTube this morning if you can access that. Not sure if they'll be/are being taken down though.

Sadly, I know. I can almost understand not liking the band's recent material and still being obsessed enough to participate on a site devoted the the band.

But not even giving the music a full, fair listen?

I don't see the problem. When one looks at Interference in general, there's tons of stuff here being discussed that has nothing to do with U2. If one has come to be ambivalent about U2 to the extent he or she isn't interested in new material, I say fair enough.

I rather doubt I'm alone in that regard.

Now, Moment of Surrender is pretty good though.
