Re: Was David really that bad in the 80's? [re: sunspot]  

In reply to:

The last Fleetwood Mac album was better than Heathen, even if it's too damn long and badly in need of Christine McVie's light pop charms,


But in terms of actual acclaim, no veteran of the 60s, 70s or 80s achieved any better that year. Springsteen's The Rising was up there but having heard it recently, it sounds like a tired old joke compared to Heathen.

In reply to:

his work is almost embarrassing in comparison to that of '80s acts like Annie Lennox or Sting or Prince, who can all still assemble solid albums (Lennox's latest is brilliant).


You've got to be kidding me. In terms of producing consistent albums, Prince has gone from average to absolute dire. Sting became a terminal bore by the mid 90s. Lennox's new album failed to make an impression on me (a shame considering I liked Diva a lot at the time) and she is hardly the prolific artist with 2 (at most 2 and a half) albums compared to Bowie's EIGHT albums in the same amount of time.

The way I see it, even many of the great bands of the early 90s (U2, Blur, Suede, The Auteurs, The Boo Radleys, Oasis etc) are now either struggling or downright failing to keep up with Bowie's current quality and output.
