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

I'm surprised not more people listed Never Let Me Down. That was a pathetic album. I refused to ever purchase it. It was the only time since 1972 that I was embarassed to be a Bowie fan. Tonight was also disapointing. I think db was going through some serious creative blockage. That often happens when you get off the hard drugs! haha However, at some point, a friend bought me a very nice little 7" single box-set of Day In - Day Out. I never listen to it, but I'm happy to own it!

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

NLMD gets a bonus as far as I am concerned: first for having "time will crawl" on it and secondly cause the appendant "Glas Spider Tour" included Bowie standing on top of the stage roof with golden wings strapped to his body chanting "Time" into the warm Berlin summer night. Unreal, bizarre, unforgettable. Pretty shitty album still.

It surprises me that so many around here dislike "hours".


I can't speak for anyone else, but I'll tell you why I don't like it. In a nutshell, it's boring and the lyrics are weak.

I'm not a musician, but as a layperson, I find nothing engaging or stimulating about most of the music. It seems like he's just going through the motions, making simple, friendly tunes. There's nothing intense or unusual or cutting-edge like there is on 1. Outside or Buddha of Suburbia.

But even that I could have lived with had the album not included such lyrical gems as "I should have been a wiser kind of guy," "You're the great mistake I never made," and the maddeningly absurd "Abracadoo."

I also don't care for the abundance of cheesy sentimentality on the album. That's something he's never done particularly well.

Here is a review I wrote of it when it first came out. I actually liked it more when I first heard it than I do now - I gave it just couple of listens to get the review in by deadline, and it wasn't until later, more intensive listens that I realised how much I dislike the lyrics.

I sound like an overly-negative bitch. I'm not, I swear. I do like "The Dreamers," "The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell," and "Brilliant Adventure." "New Angels Of Promise" is OK, and I've recently developed a sentimental spot for "Something In The Air" (though I still think the opening riff was better the first time it was used in "Seven Years In Tibet," and that "Abracadoo" thing is just so wrong).

I don't hate the album, but I find it so inferior to the rest of his work that I can't really respect it. I will say that I liked the songs on the album much better when I heard them on a boot in their Omikron form. This is especially true of what became "New Angels Of Promise." But I'll never understand how anyone could put this on the same level as Buddha Of Suburbia.

Bowie Albums That Twister Hates new [re: ExquisiteCorpse]  

I hate Let's Dance. I think Modern Love is a pretty great song, but the rest ranges from boring (at best) to excruciating (at Shake It). I also hate Earthling, which is just a complete piece of shit from start to finish.

I hope that I can say the things I wish I'd said.

Nay, when it comes to Bowie I don't jest. I really don't like arty music (so wherever Sysiyo is, he can have his V-2 Shneider). I'm more of a hard rock/metal fan, so I prefer his early 70s work over anything else of his, though I do get off to Tonight.

I know it's hard to keep an open heart
