12 out of 15 albums in the vinyl box are previusly unreleased and I don't need or want any of them.

The redone version of Zeroes is online now. Needless to say the fanboys are apoplectic with joy over how great it is. It’s odd. The backing is quite different, but instead of sounding very 80’s it now sounds as if it was cobbled together with pro tools. Which I’m sure it was.
The vocals are way to the fore and just highlights how poor Bowie’s singing is on this one. Despite Reeve Gabrels involvement (why?) his fret shredding isn’t evident ... maybe a little on the fade.
So ... a little bullet dodged.

It was a dreadful record, but the problems start with the songs. The performance was just the cherry on the top of the curly turd.

Totally agree Moleskin. Let us not forget that this makeover forms part of the exclusive content of an expensive box set. Something had to be put in there to help the punters part with their money!

I suspect a curly turd would be more inviting.

I love that little dance move Cher does when she is getting down with her bad self.

I tried to sit through the whole thing but couldn't. Figured someone here would get something out of it though.

It’s the most “Sweeney Sisters” type medley I’ve ever heard.

This paragraph from Lester Bangs' review of 'Station to Station' made me chuckle...

Lester Bangs wrote:This is the first Bowie album without a lyric sheet, and I'm glad, because aside from previously voiced reservations I've always agreed with Fats Domino that it's more fun to figure them out for yourself. The first line on the album is the worst: "The return of the thin white duke / Throwing darts in lovers' eyes." Somehow, back in Rock Critics' Training School, when they told me about "pop poetry," I didn't and still don't think that they were talking about this, which is not only pretentious and mildly unpleasant, but I am currently wrestling with a terrible paranoia that this is Bowie talking about himself, I have a nightmare vision in my mind of him opening the set in his new tour by striding out onstage slowly, with a pained look in his eyes and one spotlight following him, mouthing these words. And, quite frankly, that idea terrifies me. Because if it's true, it means he's still as big an idiot as he used to be and needs a little more cocaine to straighten him out.
