Re: Battle Royale 4th Round: Scary Monsters vs. STS new [re: fiGgU_]  

Station To Station is narrowing the gap so there is still hope. Come on you good folks, we can't let STS drop out here.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Bizarre occult Bowie is better new [re: EJ]  

Indeed; I voted S2S earlier. There's little to choose between the two, though SM's production is sufficiently screwed up for this vote to work against its favour.

Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said I'd like to smash every tooth in your head . . .

Re: Battle Royale 4th Round: Scary Monsters vs. STS new [re: EJ]  

Tough choice - scary monsters has a well chosen opener and three very good tracks and the perhaps best song every being released on this planet Ashes To Ashes.
Station To Station on the other hand has a magnificent opener, one nice written-for-elvis fun song and one of bowie's most touching songs to close the site.

Based purely on the songs, Scary Monsters is clearly winning, but considering the flow of the whole side, Station To Station delivers a slightly better balanced choice of songs, making it a good mixture of difference and consistency opposed to Scary Monster's collection of songs which mainly fit together because they sound a bit garage/punk like from a production point of view.

btw. does anybody have the LP version of STS - I've never heard the same recording of one song sounding *that* different on the CD release....

Sure have. Which song do you mean and which CD release do you compare it with?

I have the LP too, and the Rykodisc CD. I don't hear much difference between the record and the CD I'll have to dig out the LP again but I don't recall much difference.
