What's wrong with reality?? new  

I really can't understand why some of you db-fans are so negative about ''reality''! i think that realty is a brave and a fresh album,providing a new sound to bowie,from wich he could on his next album build o potential''best bowie album of all time''! The only album with reality is that some of the songs(bmtdk,try some buy some & shell drive the big car) seems out of place in the album,even though they are good songs?
But the 2 tracks from the bonus disc;''fly & queen of all the tarts'' are fantastic,and could've have replaced them track's a mentioned,wich would haved made the the album even better!
Songs new killer star,never get old and reality are pure classics,and also pablo picasso,looking for water and fall dog bombs the moon are also great. the lyrics are throughout the album ABSLOUTE fantastic,been in the same level as ''tmwstw'' or ''heathen''. But what is it that some of you fans's don't like about reality??

It has a couple of really good ( as in different ) tracks on it IMO BMTDK and Days the rest is rather repetitive and mediocre, It's not a bad album per se, It's a rushed album and duznt show much thought, Bowie is capable of much better material.

Incidently how long have you been a Bowie fan please?

Sound and... new [re: b_mardle]  

In reply to:

This, at least in part, is really what I don't like about the album. I prefer instrumental music over music with vocals. That is not to say I wouldn't like the latter form of music, but if there are vocals I'd prefer them to work with the music. The actual meaning of the words is unimportant (although of course it's better to have 'good' lyrics than poor ones), how they relate with the music itself is the main thing. the problem with Reality is that this link doesn't really work. It has been written from the point of conveying the meaning of the lyrics (or so it sounds to me) rather than musical coherence.

Add to that that Bowie's vocals sound rushed, the songs are overtly repetitive and there's way too much acoustic guitar.

Ah-ha! Sys now I begin to understand where you are coming from, of course what you say is true, I hadn't looked at it that way but do now, no wonder it just duznt gel with fans.

I like the album in general, althought i tend to skip Try some Buy some and The loneliest guy. I agree that extra tracks that appeared in the other releases of Reality (Fly, Waterloo sunset) were really good. As for She'll drive the big car, I simply love it ...

what would make one rushed? new [re: Sysiyo]  

Remember he consumes a huge amount of French Roast all the time While his vocals are said to sound rushed(i call it urgency myself) He is used to laying the first or second take of a vocal track, if I recall correctly.

Indeed, but why do vocals on other albums where he did precisely the same thing sound a lot better?

The sound of one album crapping new [re: b_mardle]  

In a word, it sucks.

Wait, fuck, that's two words. Anyway, it still sucks. And you know what the best part is? I seriously doubt that I've ever actually listened to the second half of the album. I mean, I put it on when I got it, and by about 15 seconds in I was even less enamoured of it than with Heathen.

I guess it's sort of like when I walked out of Robots the other day. I mean, I could just as easily have stuck it out so I'd be able to tell you in exquisite detail why exactly it sucked, like why I want to see The Village just to know precisely how that worthless hack abused the cinematic form yet again. But it wasn't worth it, cause I had episodes of 24 to watch, and Jack Bauer needed me.

Much like Raekwon needs me now.

Fumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawn and stretch, and my life is a mess
And if I never make it home today, God bless

I sure hope Jack Bauer gets overtime.

What shall we do to fill the empty spaces?

b_mardle, when you've been here a bit longer and understand the dynamics of the board a bit better, you will realise that you won't really fit in with everyone here unless you bag the shit out of Bowie's albums since Scary Monsters (1.Outside excepted).

Pet, this is the Teenage Wildlife Conversation Piece, we can't have people defending Bowie's latest works. Nevermind the fact that he toured the album and everybody but everybody saw it and loved it (well, except for about 3 people here).... you must bag it to fit in.

OK?

Get Bowie Back Downunder!
