Re: Hateable Bowie albums? new [re: ExquisiteCorpse]  

The early Decca and Pye Tunes and various compilations of them. "I Dig Everything", "London Boy" and "The Dream Anthology". I don't hate any of these albums they just do nothing for me.

I find the Deram Anthology very amusing and I love it...

Nah, they just get better new [re: ExquisiteCorpse]  

Up until a few weeks ago, I hated Tonight. I never listened to it, and I even sort of denied its existence; "Loving The Alien" and "Blue Jean" were just random singles to me.

Recently, however, I was inspired to listen to it again, and I've found, much to my surprise, that I quite like it. It's nowhere near the top of the heap, for sure, but it is indeed very enjoyable to me now.

So the only album that I dislike more than like at this point is 'hours...', and I still couldn't say I hate it. And 15 years down the road, I might actually decide I like it more than I thought I did.

- So, what you're saying is that you manipulated me.
- Yes, exactly.

I think that hours... just had really high expectations and most people are just diappointed in it...compared to other Bowie albums it can appear kind of boring...but standing on its own it's pretty good...

In reply to:

"The Dream Anthology".


I know you meant to say The Deram Anthology. Go back and listen to The Gospel According To Tony Day. That's one of my favorite Bowie songs from the 60's.

Re: Nah, they just get better new [re: ExquisiteCorpse]  

It surprises me that so many around here dislike "hours". To me it is a very good album, belongs to his best work in the 90s. Far better than "Outside" or "BTWN". Same level as "Buddha", and "Earthling", though it is very different from those more adventurous pieces. "Still have some good tunes in me" the Man said about "hours", and he has proven himself dead right. Great singing, good songs, less intrusive than the pseudo-intellectual non-sense named "Outside" and far more inspired than the rather dull middle-of-the-road-singsang we partly find on "BTWN". Had to be said.

Re: Nah, they just get better new [re: ErichJohann]  

I was surprised too by the critics on hours... It lived up to my expectations when I bought it. I had read before it was more "old school" Bowie, which I liked very much.
Outside and Earthling were very good, but these relaxed songs about real people on "hours..." were very welcome. I really can't see why anyone would hate it, or think it's one of Bowies worst.

God doesn't care if I'm good

Re: Hateable Bowie albums? new [re: ExquisiteCorpse]  

There are alot, I mean alot, of Bowie albums I cannot stand. I can be picky when it comes to music, very. Some of the albums I don't like are Young Americans, hours..., Let's Dance, and I really don't understand why everyone things S2S is so great. I like some of the tracks, but it seems so dull.

Just my two cents. I feel the early 70s albums make up for the others I dislike.
