Re: Hours, Heathen, Reality. new [re: Claude]  

I grow more and more fond of Heathen as time passes. It is already a classic. I didn't like it at first, something with the production that I thought sounded very dated and I had to get used to it. By now I think my favourite song is Slip away - it was definitely not from the beginning!

Hours - there is something I don't understand here! Somehow the parts are bigger than the whole. When I really concentrate on listening to the songs, then I see greatness, not the least in the riffs. But try to just put on the CD in the background and do something else, then it sounds like a really boring album. You have to listen hard in order to like it. I don't know why. Is it just me? Does it have to do with the production?

Re: Hours, Heathen, Reality. new [re: Emil]  

I agree with you about hours, there are some great songs on there but i do find the album a little boring. I don't know why thought when there are songs like Thursdays child, seven, survive, something in the air and PTAGTH on it.

Heathen took me ages to get into, it was only when i stumbled on the digipack with bonus disc and subsequently put the standard cd in my car that i really started playing it, and i haven't stopped (this was about march last year). I love Sunday (now), everyone says hi, gemini spacecraft, afraid, 5.15 and heathen itself.

reality, this album was an instant hit, i think because it gets off to such a rocking start and keeps on going, i wasn't sure on the cover, so unlike a bowie cover. New Killer Star should've been a huge hit.
Seen as a job lot thought I think Bowie has hit yet another purple patch in his career, i regualarly play the three together. I wonder how Toy would've sounded between hours and Heathen though?

OK I've got most of the tracks of it, but i wonder what the sequence would be?

Tell you what i did hear the other day on Bowieaudio?,I heard the new version of "London Boys"and it fair blew my mind,The violins sound so manic,Its difficult sometimes to take to new versions of such old favs,I also noticed some speech changes!.IE In the original London Boys hes sings "Butter and bread"the new version its"Budder and bread"I NO likey that:-(,If thats the case?,Then singing the line"You can't read a thing cause the meter is dead",Should be sung thus"You can't read a thing cause the meadder is dead",It just duznt work does it,Keep the word Butter NOT Budder...
I really wish they would release Toys,Just how many tracks are there please?.

There's afraid and slip away of heathen, Baby loves that way, you've got a habit of leaving, wood jackson, shadow man, when the boys come marching home (heathen b sides), Queen of all the tarts (overture) and your turn to drive (reality bonuses).
Plus the aforementioned London boys.

Can anyone add to this?
