Re: Hateable Bowie albums? [re: diamondogz74]  

Yes I do have this album. Tin Machine I & II are more enjoyable to listen than 'buddha...' . I only have listened to it twice in my entirely life.

It's nice we all have different opinons, you obviously enjoy your Bowie loud, do you like any slow/ballad type Bowie songs/albums?

Black Tie White Noise, although I don't know what you consider slow.

I would consider that a slow in places type Bowie album and one I truly love.

I don't actually hate any Bowie albums per se, there are some I never play, Let's Dance for one, as for TM? they are an acquired taste and not a taste I have acquired as yet!

Slow burnin' Buddha [re: krettis]  

I hated Buddha at first too. But since I'd bought it, and I was stuck in Paris with not much else to listen to at the time, I left it on in the background as I worked.

After about a week, I decided it wasn't that bad, just inoffensive. After another week or so, I decided it was one of Bowie's best ever albums, an opinion I still hold.

Not saying it'd be the same for you, we might have very different tastes (I don't like BTWN much), but I do think it's an album that needs more than a couple of listens. I almost threw Outside away based on the first couple of listens.

Slan libh,

Dara

Way too long, way too long... [re: russellmael]  

Every tune you listen long enough to will get stuck in your brain at some point - this is the brainwashing factor. But that's not necessarily the same as listening to some song, which on first listening does not seem to have a real tune and more and more reveals a well hidden idea. that is the hidden gem factor. normally I listen to an album and like some tracks the first time i hear them. that's the first-like-factor.
then the more i listen to the album, the more i find other songs which i like more while those i liked first lose a bit of their likeability or get boring. there are very few songs which have a first-like-factor and a hidden gem factor (though ashes to ashes comes to my mind). I am not sure whether it is possible to dislike Buddah while having had the patience to find the brilliance in Outside.

But to get on topic again - of course tonight, never let me down or the tin machine albums are easy to dislike. Still all of them contain some interesting tracks which are completly on bowie's standard. This fact makes me hate the album less but more the Bowie of its time, because those tracks show what could have been possible. Tin Machine II could have been Baby Universal and Goodbye Mr. Ed, Tin Machine much more like I Can't Read - noisy but structured instead of trying to get the sound of a pupil band - and - that is what hurts the most - tonight could have had more tracks on the level of Loving The Alien, which even worked as a single and is one of the best songs in his whole catalogue.

Nothing is more hateable than failing to match one's own standard.
