Re: Creole new [re: poorsoul]  

I know it's not that good, but to put it lower than stuff like Tonight is criminal in my opinion.

If at first you don't succeed, it probably wasn't worth doing in the first place

A new list and the history new [re: NoGame]  

It has been a long time since I updated this list, so I guess I need to slip in both Heathen and Reality. Let's see how that goes.

What else has changed since I made my first list in March 2002? Well, I guess Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) doesn't hold the top position any longer. I guess I have listened to it, too often. Also, Hunky Dory is going lower and lower on the list. Any albums going up? Yea', of course, Buddha is now, in my fandom, well established as one of Bowie's most brilliant albums. Back then, I was still reluctant to mark it higher than the TM albums, because I liked the work of Reeves Gabrels so much. Turns out, I like the work of David Bowie even better (you wouldn't say, would you? ). Anyway, here it is, complete with smileys and all.

In relation to last time: U = up, D = down, 'number' = places it went up or down. 'next number' = position last time. Of course, some entries have gone down because of the adding of two new albums. The shiftings in the top regions are more interesting.

U 1 (02) - 01. Low

U 1 (03) - 02. Earthling
U 3 (06) - 03. "Heroes"
U 1 (05) - 04. Station to Station
D 4 (01) - 05. Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

new entry 06. Heathen
U 6 (13) 07. The Buddha of Suburbia
D 1 (07) 08. Aladdin Sane
same 09. Lodger
D 2 (08) 10. 1. Outside

U 3 (14) 11. Ziggy Stardust
new entry 12. Reality
D 3 (10) 13. Let's Dance
D 10 (04) 14. Hunky Dory
same 15. Diamond Dogs

D 5 (11) 16. Tin Machine
D 5 (12) 17. Tin Machine II
D 1 (17) 18. Young Americans
D 1 (18) 19. The Man Who Sold the World
same 20. Black Tie White Noise

same 21. hours...
D 6 (16) 22. Pin Ups

What kinda fan am I? new [re: EuropeanCanon]  

In reply to:

With due respect to those that 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.


I would be interested in your list, even the updates. This thread is really a blueprint of the TW fanbase. In this thread you can find out what kinda Bowie fan / admirer / whatever you want to call it, someone is. I liked reading the post of some of the TW'ers here I hold in high regard, including you, EuropeanCanon. You can seperate the glammers from the experimenters, the pop-lovers from the soul-lovers. On and on. Yea', I really like this thread.

List Shuffling new [re: NoGame]  

Very intersting list, NoGame.

"Earthling" on two is a brave move and it's good to see someone share my enthusiasm for "Heathen". "Reality" ahead of "Hunky Dory" and "Diamond Dogs" is pretty unique around here as well. But the Tin Machine output beating "TMWSTW" and "Young Americans" is a bit too much I would say.

In reply to:

Newton: 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.


This could be well one of the definitive Newton posts. What an absolutely stellar mind.

Sadness is for poor people.

Not that much too much... new [re: EJSunday]  

I guess TMWSTW is an album one cannot really appretiate before having an insane phase in one's life making one doubting the own sanity. so let's just wait for the next versions of that list...

Self Control new [re: th0mas]  

Yeah, that must be the problem. And as we both have met NoGame we must admit that he is very unlikely to drift into "an insane phase in one's life making one doubting the own sanity." So that fantastic album may stay beyond him for a very long time. Sad.
