So what's next for me?  

I'm a relatively young David Bowie fan (I believe) at the age of 14, but already it seems my life is more Bowiecentric than his own. I have the following CDs:
Hunky Dory,
Scary Monsters,
Ziggy Stardust,
Diamond Dogs,
Low,
'hours...',
Bowie at the Beeb,
The Man Who Sold The World,
Heathen,
Earthling,
Well, I lie, the last two are actually in the post, I've just ordered them.
Anyway, I love every one of those albums and I'm wondering what to get next... I've heard that his albums from the 80s are quite weak, but then again I heard the same about his 90/2000s work and I adore 'hours...' and what I've heard from Earthling and Heathen.

I pride myself in never having bought a CD that I dislike. I want to know, are there any Bowie albums that are truly lacklustre? Or, alternatively, what should I get next? I know it's all a matter of opinion, but I just want to be safe. I've got access to a new album whenever I've got £7, they often appear in my local music shop for that price or less.

Damnit, this didn't really make any sense...

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: syndrome]  

The common consensus is that Never let me down and Tonight are the worst albums, but there are good songs on both, if you are going on this journey it is only right you check out every destination. You may not end up liking it all but that's ok. The early 60s stuff will probably be strage to you, but make sure you give it a fair listen. There is a great cd called 'early on' which picks up all his pre 1967 songs on one collection, then there is the Deram anthology which has all his songs from the mid to late 60s on it (apart from one) finally is the Space oddity album which is where the story starts for many. Have fun exploring the albums, get them all.
Looking at what you have got, you really need to get Aladdin Sane.
Oh and welcome.

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: syndrome]  

I suggest you get to love the earlier stuff first before listening to albums like Earthling or Outside. Personally I just don't think you can appreciate what they are until you know where they've come from.

Things can also work the other way around. It might even be more rewarding to get the newer albums first, then get the old ones and after them listen to the newer ones again. Music is at it's most rewarding when you don't immidiately "get" the entire thing, certain albums can take several years to get into, but they are in the end also the most rewarding ones.

For album recommendations... "Heroes" is a must. And Station To Station, which is (as noted in Adam's thread on the subject) probably the generally best-liked Bowie album. Not only in the way of positive opinions, but the lack of negative opinions.

Also, I agree with Pablo that the 80's albums are worth checking out, all of them have their good moments. The 90's albums are all good, although Tin Machine II is inferior to the others. Then again, most people would say the same about Hours and you liked it, so you never know.

Except that Tin Machine is far worse than Tin Machine II. So, Syndrome, just a hint: aim at getting all the albums (which you're probably doing anyway) and form your oppinions. There are as many oppinions of Bowie's albums on this board than there are posters here, and mostly we just don't agree about that many things But yeah, FastChanges is right: you need to get Station to Station soon. It's great.

Oops, should have noticed. But anyway, I don't really think Tin Machine II is inferior in any sense. Not even compared to his other nineties albums. Although... of course Outside and BTWN are a lot better, but... I don't know. I just don't like it being called inferior, when, in my oppinion, Bowie's only inferior albums are Tin Machine and Tonight.

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: syndrome]  

For an easy ride into his music I would personally buy Lets Dance and Never Let me down their relatively cheap at HMV if your lucky HMV usually has these two CD at a very low price maybe as low as say £3.99. The 70s stuff is usually a little more expensive.
OK their a bit POP but if say you buy Outside next you will probably find his 80s stuff crap.
My first Bowie album was changesbowie I think it’s £4.99 at HMV but with the albums you’ve already got you’ve probably got most of the tracks already from it.
Maybe get live or Stage they’ve got a varied line up of songs or if you can find it the 50th Birthday Party concert- I downloaded this of the internet I’m not sure if you can get on CD.


Don’t get
OUTSIDE at first it’s a required taste although if you’ve got earthling maybe you should.
PIN UPS Buy Aladdin Sane first it’s better
Young Americans Its again a bit different if I had to start my collection again I wouldn’t but YA at the top of my list it’s a an Soul sound not a rock album so at first it may be a bit too different.

Pin ups is a great album, ok Bowie may not have written the songs, but it is a well produced collection of some of his favourite songs from the previous decade. It is the last time Ronno was his lead guitarist on record and in a way Ziggy's last stand. Get it, forget who wrote the songs and have a ball.

pin-ups is just so weak to me. it's flat and hollow. it just sounds like bowie at the beeb, but in a bad way.

as a younger bowie fan myself, i highly suggest Lodger or Aladdin Sane.

and you need a live album soon. david live is really cool - very unlike the rest of his work (near lounge at times). stage is pretty good, but there's so little deviation from the album version sometimes. ziggy live is fucking awesome. heavy, loud, energy.

I think Stage is Bowie's best live album, miles better than David Live (which in the long run I find frankly annoying), Ziggy The Motion Picture (or whatever it's called these days, which has a poor suond quality and the I find the performances uninteresting) or BBC Radio Theatre 2000 (which, admittedly, is great). Stage has an extremely good suond-quality, and although the none of the performances differ greatly from the originals (unlike on David Live), there are some very interesting variations, like the guitar-riff on Ziggy Stardust played with an electric violin. The band has a very rich, full sound that serves especially the Ziggy pieces well.

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: syndrome]  

first i'd recommend not to buy them too quick. always buy one and then get into it. this way you'll might have several months of great music instead of a few weeks with some ear sticking tunes and others you simply won't discover.
every album has its own brilliant bits to be found, even the 80ies or hours...

I did the same recently. I bought a Roxy-Ferry compilation a year ago, then "Avalon" at the beginning of the year and then the other 7 records at once.

In the first weeks I listened almost exclusively to "For your pleasure", then to the first album. Now I think I'm familiar with all but I still have things to discover.

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: Sysiyo]  

oh yes, the 3rd disc of bowie @ the beeb is the best, but doesn't that only come with bowie @ the beeb? he said he's already got that one. it would be a drag to buy it again just for the 3rd disc... if you can find one.

I enjoy Ziggy Live, personally. no, it doesn't have the highest quality audio, but it has some cool moments (such as yelling at the crowd in "My Death"). Altho, upon really listening to the wild/atyd/pretty several times i realized i only sort-of like it. the songs have nothing to do with eachother. Moonage Daydream is in peak form in this recording.

I agree with fastchanges - Blackout is stellar on Stage. so is Soul Love, Star and Breaking Glass. I dont like that version of Fame though, because it doesn't sound very full, for some reason. Hang On To Yourself just sounds stupid, i think. it's not nearly heavy enough.

Or, you could try to get Live @ Santa Monica. it's... odd. got a lot of mistakes in it (like the backing vocals in Five Years being waaaaaay off key) and can be poorly mastered at times (like the backing vocals in Five Years being louder than David....)

so in short: if you like Ziggy, get Ziggy Live. If you like the berlin trilogy, get Stage. if you like um.... something wierd... get David Live. Personally, i vote for David Live. I like wierd.

I keep forgetting about that as I managed to buy a (used) copy of it without the two-disc B@B.

All this leads to the fact that the BBC Radio Theatre disc should be reissued as a stand-alone album. Including The London Boys, I Dig Everything and the full encore (which incldued six tracks, of which only Let's Dance appears on the disc).

About 2 year's ago, when i really got into bowie, i started to buy he's albums, basically one buy one, or 2 at once at most. I exploided an album for a week or so, then moved on to another. I always had a good idea of the album i should buy next. First of all i bought heathen, then heroes&lodger, then reality came out, then btwn/earthling/outside... Deram antrology was the last album i bought, it took about 5 month's to get all the records

True... I can blame that book Strange Fascination for getting all my Bowie-albums. I was reading it, while I started noticing Bowie-albums on sale. It was actually kind of interesting to listen to them after I'd read about them in the book. Now I'm thinking of reading that book again, or at least the parts about the albums, so I'll see if I agree with David Buckley or not.

Then it's probably some different book, or at least not an "official" reprint of the original Illusitrated Record which to my knowledge hasn't been reprinted since the 1981 edition (I might be wrong) and most definately never been translated into finnish.

Unless you mean the book that's (in finnish) called David Bowie, which is a translated version of David Buckley's Strange Fascination, not the original Illusitrated Record.

But here's what I don't get: You mean there are two books called Strange Fascination? One has never been reprinted or translated and the other one has? Sorry, but that just doesn't make sense. I mean... You're talking about a "translated version" of Buckley's Strange Fascination. So that's a totally different book that has been updated? But the one in English hasn't? Please explain.

One book that does deserve an up date... except it would be twice the size. Also excellent!

Yeah 'Changes'... rushed out, or what?

In reply to:

How are you finding "Country Life", FastChanges?


Well, I love "Bitter-sweet" (especially the German lyrics!) and "Casanova", but I find "If it takes all night" and "Prairie Rose" annoying. The album I like best is "For your pleasure", followed by the first album and "Avalon" in third.

I'm waiting for the new album now... I watched their Live 8 performance yesterday and found it a bit disappointing, Ferry seemed bored. He sings "Do the Strandsky" with much less intensity than 30 years ago. I know he'll turn 60 next month, but that's no excuse for acting so blasé.

Re: So what's next for me? new [re: FastChanges]  

If It Takes All Night is my least favourite on a stunning album (although I still think this track is okay) but Prairie Rose? One of my all time favourites!

Avalon is just so refined that it never captures my attention in the same way - all very laid back - too much so in fact (The Space Between and While My Heart is Still Beating are just dull). I do hope the new Roxy album is more up tempo and the signs might be good, given the reunion shows and Ferry's most recent solo album "Frantic".

I love that song! The saxophone gives me bumps everywhere (even the unshaven areas).

Please, tell me what you were trying to say! And what is that "I-KIRJAIN"? I mean, it just means "letter i". Doesn't the program recognice the word "I"?

Anyway, that "haastaa" and "talk" is kind of an interesting thing, because "haastaa" means both "challenge" and "talk". But the word in the "talk"-meaning is more like some dialect and not so much standard language.

Not quite, it's just that we Finns haven't sold our expletive vocabulary completely to the altar of genitals. We still have healthy amount of petnames for the good ol' Beelzebub.

En ole koskenut muiden käyttäjien viesteihin, mutta moderaattorina mä voisin kyllä niin tehdä. Siitä tosin jää aina jälkeen teksti 'edited by Sysiyo at...' jos mä muiden viestejä muuttelen.

En kommentoi timanttikoirien käännös-yrityksiä, kiitoksia vaan.

"LETTER-I existence treat unrespecfully basic at home shamelesness lifestyle Kati, LETTER-I strange Alan poor lawn" Thanks, that explained everything

Anyway, in Sys's message "timanttikoira" means "diamond dog", where "timantti" is "diamond" and "koira" is "dog".

I think one problem with the translater is that it doesn't recognize for example the word "mä", which is actually a shorter form of "minä" in the spoken language, which means "I".

This is fun

Yes it is very good fun and we can learn by it too, I think one of us ( go on Kati ) should start a translater usage thread, rather than clog this thread up, because as sure as eggs is eggs! we are gonna be told off by Sys sooner or later
