In case you haven't noticed, I gave them the same note - 4 and 1/2

Yes, I noticed the 4 & 1/2 smilies. I also noticed Heathen was placed at # 5 and Diamond Dogs at # 6. I can't see anyone in their right mind putting Heathen ahead of Diamond Dogs.

I don't force you to share my opinions, do I? So what's the big deal.


Maybe I should have said "you've got to be kidding" instead.
Yes, you're entitled to your opinions and I'm entitled to question them. This is a message board. That's the deal.

In reply to:

And you haven't realized that if two albums have the same note, they're equal or alomst equal?

In reply to:

I also noticed Heathen was placed at # 5 and Diamond Dogs at # 6. I can't see anyone in their right mind putting Heathen ahead of Diamond Dogs.


I put it ahead of Diamond Dogs only because I've been listening to it more than to DD lately. Apart from this fact, I rate those two records very similarily.

Maybe I should have said "you've got to be kidding" instead.


And then I would have said "No, dear Tristan, I kid you not!"

In reply to:

Yes, you're entitled to your opinions and I'm entitled to question them.


You are, but I don't see the point in questioning other people's opinions. You cannot discuss taste and preferences, each man has got different views and opinions.

No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were.

oh yeah, update! new [re: EJSunday]  

Albums frequently in my CD changer:
1. Diamond Dogs
2. Low
3. Outside
4. Heathen (SACD)
5. Earthling

Albums still listened to more often than to the average album.
6. Station To Station
7. Aladdin Sane
8. Scary Monsters
9. Ziggy Stardust

Average albums
10. The Man Who Sold The World
11. Lodger
12. Heroes
13. Hunky Dory
14. Buddha Of Suburbia
15. Reality

For Bowie sub-par, but still in my stereo from time to time.
16. Let`s Dance
17. Young Americans

Albums which need a special mood to be tried out once more.
18. Space Oddity
19. Hours
20. BTWN
21. Tin Machine II

Albums I avoid (this is more or less a random ranking between them, since it does not matter anyway).
22. NLMD
23. Tin Machine
24 .Pin Ups
25. David Bowie
26. Tonight

It's come to this new [re: twister]  

Places 1-5 can vary; I guess I should get itunes to provide useage stats, huh? Places 19-25 are nigh unrankable because I hardly ever play them. All the others in between were ranked within their groups according to the length of the word based on my sloppy handwriting.

Near perfection:
1 - Low
2 - Young Americans
3 - The Man Who Sold the World
4 - Station to Station
5 - Diamond Dogs
6 - Lodger
7 - Scary Monsters
8 - Hunky Dory

Thoroughly enjoyable albums with the odd duff track:
9 - Outside
10 - Buddha
11 - Space Oddity
12 - Ziggy
13 - Aladdin
14 - Heroes

A few misfires but good just about outweighs the bad:
15 - BTWN
16 - Let's Dance
17 - Hours
18 - Earthling

Omgwhydidiwastemymoneyonthiscrap:
19 - Heathen
20 - Reality
21 - S/t 1966
22 - Pinups
23 - Tonight
24 - TM 1
25 - NLMD

No never, no never no more

Traditions. new [re: Sysiyo]  

I guess, in keeping with the tradition, this call for another update to my listing. I must admit that I have listened to hardly any Bowie albums of the late. Which might be good, as recent experiences cannot alter my rankings. For the sake of comparisons, I've followed each album's name with it's position in the last ranking (where applicable, there are three albums in this one I didn't list the last time).

1. Outside (1)
2. "Heroes" (2)
3. Stage (6)
4. Low (forgot to rank this the last time!)
5. Buddha Of Suburbia (10)
6. Station To Station (3)
7. Black Tie White Noise (16)
8. Lodger (7)
9. Earthling (13)
10. Scary Monsters (4)
11. The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust jadda jadda (14)
12. Heathen (12)
13. Aladdin Sane (5)
14. Never Let Me Down (15)
15. Tin Machine II (-)
16. Young Americans (9)
17. Hours (21)
18. Diamond Dogs (8)
19. David Live (11)
20. Tonight (18)
21. Tin Machine (20)
22. Space Oddity (17)
23. Let's Dance (19)
24. Reality (-)
25. Hunky Dory (23)
26. The Man Who Sold The World (24)
27. David Bowie (22)
28. PinUps (25)

The most alarming thing is of course the rise of Hunky Dory (now only fourth from the last). If it keeps this speed up, it will be in the top three around 2030. OK, it actually dropped two places because of the albums added to the list. But it also gained a place from the self-titeled.

Aloof is the new black new [re: twister]  

With due respect to those that have posted on this thread, I really don't give a monkey's toss as regard to who likes what. Similarly, I can't imagine that anybody would be remotely interested in my own Bowie favourite albums either. However, as I've got nothing else to do at the moment, I've decided to compile an updated list. But in an attempt to generate some modicum of excitement, mainly for myself, but also for those of you actually bothering to read this post, I've decided to present my list in a manner slightly outside the norm.

So, the tricky dilemma of how to spice up an extremely routine post. Taking inspiration from EJ's post, I've struck upon the idea of introducing each and every album by way of using TW's smilie faces (or whatever they're called) that bear a passing resemblence to certain Hollywood stars. For example, I was quite startled with the similarity between this little fella: and Robert De Niro and so I've earmarked him as announcing the winner of the number 6 slot. In a manner befiting a schizophrenic Oscar ceremony, we'd therefore have;

Number 6. "Laaadddiees and Gentlemen. Please give a great big round of applause to the star of Frankenstein, Robeeert De Niiiroooo." [De Niro enters stage left to tumultuous applause] "Thank you" [De Niro opens an empty packet of Gitanes and takes out a small piece of paper] "And the winner of EuropeanCanon's sixth favourite David Bowie album is.......Station To Station" [De Niro exits stage right to even more applause]

Etc, etc. However, after about 30 seconds deliberation in selecting further Hollywood lookalikes, things became rather problematical after Quentin Tarantino [] (just tilt your head slightly and squint quite a lot). I was desperately searching for a Sidney Poitier lookalike to play the crucial role of announcer for the No.12 position. I had toyed with the idea of giving the gig to this chap: . Although I detected a certain Mr Tibbs quality in his melancholic little face, I recognised that, ultimately, I was on to a loser with my ambitious plans in that I'd be unable and unwilling to find twentysomething authentic lookalikes from such a restricted gene pool.

After learning my lesson attempting the smart-arse approach, I have inevitably reverted to the lowest common denominator to satisfy my goal. In an effort to please the laydeez (and Strawman) I've decided to post my list of favourite Bowie albums..... naked. But wait! As my mother-in-law is visiting my house at this moment in time, I've decided to spare all our blushes by keeping my G-string leather posing pouch and socks on. Soooo, for the benefit of the laydeez (and Strawman), here is my favourite Bowie songs posted semi-naked. Oh yeah, before I do, I thought I'd introduce a little controversy into your meaningless and unfulfilled lives by posting my compilation in reverse order. And, after struggling rather pathetically, in a final desperate effort to achieve my ill-fated aim of sexing-up this post I've decided to post my list in blood red text (Elliot Gould?).

26. David Bowie
25. Never Let Me Down
24. Tonight
23. Tin Machine
22.


Aw, fuck it. Nope, sorry, can't be arsed.
