A New Career In A New Town is possibly my all time favourite Bowie track. It's amazing.I'm 24.
[MENTION=74]dftaylor[/MENTION] 'Low' features one of my alltime favourite Bowie tracks, and doesn't even feature the man singing 'A New Career In A New Town'. Love listening to it on the bus home in winter when its pissin' down. I must be the only person alive that considers 'Lodger' the best of the Chateau/Berlin/NYC three [MENTION=46]doug.ie[/MENTION] IMO The La's were better than the Roses and better than all the Britpop/indie stiff that followed. Even if their album was over produced, those songs can be found with a better sound and the melodies weren't topped...since IMO.
all opinions broI love Madvillainy, but it's not a perfect album. Come on! Hardcore Hustle??? That track sucks. That other one called "Eye" ...meh. If they trimmed that album a tad and kept some of the older mixes it would have been perfect. It still might be the best album Doom & Madlib have put out.
As individual tracks they don't stand up but in the context of an album and how it adds to the flow? The album couldn't be bettered IMO.I love Madvillainy, but it's not a perfect album. Come on!

Heathen's actually a decent album as well and I really enjoyed Reality. I'll need to dig them out of my old bedroom at my mum's.[MENTION=74]dftaylor[/MENTION]....and i love his version of this...sublime..
Yeah, I started listening to Bowie when I was 16 or so, same time as I first got into The Smiths and Joy Division/New Order. Big influence on me. I remember walking around Aberdeen (where I went to art college) listening to Low and Singles and feeling like little spikes of electricity were zapping through my brain.Bowie is my no.1 music (if that makes sense) I fucking love the guy. I was a massive Beatles fan as a kid but discovering Bowie's back catalogue gave him a hard kick in the balls. I was literally absorbed into each new purchase (or lend, as my Dad had most of his best albums anyway)
But there's no fuckin' way I'm listening to anything after Scary Monsters.
