David Bowie

  1. I love Outside. My top two Bowie are Low and Aladdin Sane - probably related to the fact they were the first two I got as a teenager - but I think cemented the fact that I really like him when he’s experimental, atmospheric, and / or using lots of piano, and Outside is basically all of those things and so probably rounds out my top 3. It just sounds like a nightmare in music form.

    Every now and then I explore a bit more of his discography - I would say that even in his imperial run I don’t love that many of his albums from start to finish even if there are loads of tracks I return to a lot. Loving the Alien, Absolute Beginners and Criminal World are three of my fave slightly lesser known Bowie songs.

  7. He would have been 74 today. I wondered why there is so much Bowie programming on TV tonight!

  8. I had such an immersive experience of his work last year I genuinely felt like I was mourning him again. Such a legend, such an icon and a true artist in every sense of the word and there will never be another. Happy Birthday David Jones.
     
  9. What a truly incredible way to say goodbye.

     
  10. This whole album is immaculate. That dirgey, slightly jazzy brass and off kilter rhythms that run throughout feels both celebratory and mournful at the same time in a way that only miss David could balance perfectly.

  12. Has anyone (else) been buying the Brilliant Live Adventures CDs? The last one has just been announced. I bought it for completism but haven't even opened the previous two yet.
     
  13. Another Bowie boxset on the way. Not that exciting really. Mostly mopping up the loose ends that didn't appear on the Five Years and Conversation Piece boxsets.

  14. Give us that 90s boxset already.
     
  15. The only interesting thing about the 90s Box Set will be probably the unreleased Toy album IF they’re not going to wait for the last box set for it since it was going to be released in 2001.
    Can’t wait for the new boxset, I hope it’s the same size of the Conversation Piece boxset. There is not much stuff from that album, the Great stuff will be in the Hunky Dory Box Set.

  16. Most of Toy was made available as B-Sides/extra tracks during the Heathen and Nothing Has Changed periods, but would be nice to have it together with the unreleased recordings as full album.

  17. Yes I have the Heathen singles and limited edition 2 cds (and Nothing Has Changed) but I believe some tracks are still unvailable. I hope it’s not a box set exclusive though because I don’t buy those box sets since I already have everything (even If the remasters are better).
     
  18. The 90s set could go various ways.

    Sound + Vision (live)
    Tin Machine (studio, live)
    Leon
    Toy

    could be included....or....

    just the studio albums and maybe a mid-90s solo live disc as well.
     
  19. Absolute Beginners
    Blue Jean
    This Is Not America
    Buddha of Suburbia
    Jump The Say

    A Bop 5!
