Re: Album reviews! new [re: kingsteved]  

Space Oddity
Best: Space Oddity
Worst: Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed

Score: 7/10. A great and often under-rated early album.

The Man Who Sold The World
Best: Width Of A Circle
Worst: She Shook Me Cold

Score: 7/10. Great but some tracks, or at least some parts of tracks, let it down.

Hunky Dory
Best: Quicksand
Worst: Fill Your Heart

Score: 5/10. Some good tracks but some really awful ones too, not everything is hunky dory on this album sadly.

Ziggy Stardust
Best: Ziggy Stardust
Worst: It Ain't Easy

Score: 6/10. The album that indeed made bowie a Star, but to be brutally honest I am sick of it shadowing his other work.

Aladdin Sane
Best: Aladdin Sane
Worst: Let's Spend The Night Together

Score: 8/10. You'd have to be insane not to like this album.


Diamond Dogs
Best: Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing reprise
Worst: Rebel Rebel

Score: 7/10. Diamond geezer!

Young Americans
Best: Fame
Worst: Right

Score: 5/10. The songs drag on too much for me.

STATIONTOSTATION
Best: TVC 15
Worst: Word On A Wing

Score: 9/10. When it's over you just want it to stay a little longer.

Low
Best: Breaking Glass
Worst: What In The World

Score: 8/10. So good you might want it to be your wife.

"Heroes"
Best:"Heroes"
Worst: Sons Of The Silent Age

Lodger
Best: Move On
Worst: Red Sails

Score: 9/10. A truly fantastic voyage.

Scary Monsters

Score: 9/10. Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-fa-fa-fa-fa-fantastic.


Let's Dance
Best: Cat People (Putting Out Fire)
Worst: Shake It

Score: 4/10. Let's dance? Let's not.

Tonight
Best: Loving The Alien
Worst: God Only Knows

Score: 2/10. God only knows what made him want to make an album this awful.

Never Let Me Down
Best: Time Will Crawl
Worst: Shining Star

Score: 1/10. A let down.

Tin Machine
Best: Under The God
Worst: Video Crime

Score: 10/10. An Amazing listen.

Best: Betty Wrong
Worst: Sorry

Score: 10/10. Another great Tin Machine album.

Black Tie White Noise
Best: Jump They Say
Worst: Don't Let Me Down and Down

Score: 10/10. An amazing uplifting record. He's been around for a while, but he can still churn out great pop albums like this.

The Buddha Of Suburbia
Best: The Buddha Of Suburbia
Worst: Ian Fish UK Hier

Score: 10/10.

1. Outside

Worst: I Have Not Been To Oxford Town

Earthling
Best: Little Wonder
Worst: Looking For Satellites

Score: 10/10

... hours
Best: If I'm Dreaming All My Life

Score: 8/10. So good you might want it to be your wife.



But what is this rating 4-10 malarchy? Can't even imagine what that scale relates to... So just in spite I shall use the wonderfully bizarre Danish grade system of 00-13, where 5 roughly corresponds with an F (everything below that is just to shame you), 11 is A+ (anything above that just serves to inflate your ego)

Re: Album reviews! new [re: decibel]  

I'm sure it's already been said by many, but it's great that decibel is back. You were here several years ago, right? Like, back in 2001 or 2002. And then you left. And now you're back. That's great, because I thought you were one of the best.

Anyway, some of the choices, or, actually, most choices that you people have made, surprise me. In some cases, I just feel like...this person is sick, or this person is in total lack of any kind of taste, or any kind of musicality. Like, Slip Away is the best song on Heathen? Ricochet the worst song on Let's Dance? Golden Years and We Prick You worst songs? And why does everybody hate TVC15? It's one of his finest. And Loneliest Guy...am I the only one who has noticed the flawed production on this song? Visconti forgot to use the noise reduction filter on Bowie's voice, so each time the voice appears, there's this huge amount of, well, noise/air/buzz. If he didn't want to use noise reduction on the voice, he should have kept the voice track/the vocal channel present throughout the song, instead of raising and lowering the volume of the the vocal channel all the time. It sounds very amateurish, I think, and bad.

But without further delay, here's my list.

In reply to:

Golden Years and We Prick You worst songs?


Let's not forget it's Station to Station we're talking about. There is no such thing as a bad song on the album. There are just good songs, and really great songs. Unfortunately I find Golden Years to be the least satisfying number on the album in the long run. It's still great, mind you.

Nice new avatar, btw.

Aaw shucks... That's probably the nicest thing I've heard anyone say on these boards! You're right though, I joined in 2000 and then went away for for no good reason.
