David Bowie survivor - 'Hours...'

Little Wonder joins us in the playoffs.

Now we move onto Bowie's last album of the 20th century, 'Hours...'

The cover is fucking atrocious.



Vote for one song.

I've learnt two things doing this tournament. 1) a lot of his album art is terrible and 2) there are several Bowie albums that are far, far worse than Lodger. I apologise to Laz.

I have only heard one album in this tournament that I really didn't like, he's still Bowie, but, yeah, most of these albums since the early 80s have been inessential. Glad that I was introduced to Black Tie, White Noise, though.

I love the pathetic attempt to make it fit in with the rest of the design.

That cover is ruined almost entirely by the font, other than that the lighting/space is actually very nice.

Well I'm voting for Survive. Most of the rest veers dangerously close to adult-contemporary. Survive doesn't start well but I liked the guitar as the track wore on. The last track is pretty decent too. Seems like he was running out of ideas. Brilliant Adventure is the same title as Fantastic Voyage and it's a complete, sub-par retread of Sense of Doubt. I'd say this might be the worst of his albums.

Wait, he made a song that sounds like "Fantastic Voyage"?


EDIT: Travis just reminded me there's a song on Lodger called Fantastic Voyage...carry on.

I think Thursday's Child, which was the single IIRC, is pretty good.

I literally can't remember how the rest of any of them go. Will refresh my memory tomorrow.

That dual self-pieta is pretty narcissistic.
