I 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.

[MENTION=74]dftaylor[/MENTION] 'Low' features one of my alltime favourite Bowie tracks, and doesn't even feature the man singing :lol: '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.
A New Career In A New Town is possibly my all time favourite Bowie track. It's amazing.

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.

In terms of the criteria laid out in the OP, so many short tracks on 'Madvillainy' that I don't think I've ever skipped a track on it once.

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.

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.

No particular order.......

Straight outta compton.

The Chronic.

The stone roses, the stone roses.

2pacalypse now.

Music for the jilted generation.

Joy division Closer (2007 remaster)

Chemical brothers, exit planet dust.

Definitely maybe.

Personally love a lot of Paul weller stuff too, but dont think he has a flawless album, Stanley rd is probably closest, but I like a lot of his studio/orchestra shit.....

Like these for example.... Beautiful songs IMHO.....Everyone like different shit, music means something to someone, so even if I dont like it personally, no doubt someone does, and means something to them.....Anyway....

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.

Some of his later stuff is underrated. Outside is particularly worth a listen (it's one of David Lynch's favourite albums), even just for Heart's Filthy Lesson

Earthling has some excellent tracks like I'm Afraid of Americans and Seven Years in Tibet.

Hours is a decent attempt at soul-balladry with the highlights being Survive and Something in the Air

Heathen is actually a pretty excellent art-rock album (with emphasis on rock), Slow Burn is one of the best tracks.

Reality is good fun too, I think - New Killer Star is worth a spin, virtually speaking.
