Haven't you heard any of it at all yet?


I listened once on Spotify while drifting in and out of a light sleep. This actually seemed to really suit the album. I've heard one or two other songs since then, but that one listen pushed me to buy it on wax. I watched the videos, too, of course. But I've been putting off listening to the LP copy I got ages ago until I could give it my full attention. Tonight is that night! :)


How was your listening?

Oh, man, it was great. I felt high afterwards, really. I had sort of a lump in my throat, but didn't feel sad or cry or anything.
It's a good record, a really good one. I'd like to say something like "I'd like it even if it wasn't his last" but it couldn't be anything else, really.
My one (minor, minor) quibble is in sequencing..."I Can't Give Everything Away" sounds less like an album ender than "Dollar Days" but I get the idea behind closing the album as it is.
I'm so SO glad I waited until I could hear it at proper volume by myself instead of trying to play it with family/baby noise and activity going on at the same time.

But Dollars Days rolls beautifully into I Can't Give.. He would have had to change the ending of the songs to have the same effect do you not think?
I'm glad you enjoyed it though.

You're right. Like I said, it's a pretty minor point. I bet it won't even bug me on next hearing (likely some time in 2033).

That's funny. I spun it maybe 3 times before he left. I thought the record ended suddenly. I couldn't believe that was the last track. Afterwards I felt of COURSE it's the last track. I like the whole thing but I think the last two tracks are pretty special.

I've got a feeling someone has already posted this so apologies for the duplication. I liked this short piece by Bradford Cox of Deerhunter

http://pitchfork.com/news/62870-deerhun ... vid-bowie/


He's not really saying anything that's groundbreaking or new but it's sweet and I like the last paragraph:

" I keep hearing a lot of people say things like 'David Bowie made it ok to just be yourself' .. And while I think that's a great sentiment, it feels a little off to me. David Bowie was the guy that made it OK for you to be your IDEAL self - your imagined self, yourself in space, yourself as a superman. I love him for that."

That's very close to something I've been struggling to articulate since his death.

According to Instagram, Duncan Jones' first child (a son) was born this morning. He's going to be called Stenton David Jones, after his grandfather and his great-grandfather.

I only stumbled across this never used clip of Heroes the other week. I like his mild temper tantrum at 2:10. It occurred to me it might be part of the act, but probably not.

The new box set only covers the years 74-76 so just Diamond Dogs, Young Americans and Station to Station plus this "lost" album. A bit skimpy compared to the Five Years box which had 6 albums plus extras. I was hoping the second set would also include 6 albums and include up to Lodger. They obviously want to milk it now especially after his death.

Parts of it are better than the original video!

It makes sense, from a marketing standpoint, to have a separate "Berlin Trilogy" set, I think.

It's been available for a while called Ziet.

Zeit! ;-)
Not the same, as these new box sets are mostly new remastered versions.
The Zeit box was the EMI remasters, 1999 (awful sound)
So, let's hope for new masters of the Berlin era :-)

Given the padding on the new box. God knows what they'll dig up for the next set.

The zeit box is under twenty quid, how much for next one?

The Five Years box was a really nice set aside from some gripes about the "Japanese style" mini-sleeves (Japanese style, NOT Japanese quality) so I'm hoping the new sets will be equally as good with nice remastering. I bet they won't be cheap though. I will be getting them regardless as I have non of the albums on CD.

I can think the words 'Bowie is dead' without crying now, but I think about him for a big part of every fucking day.
