Literally found this in the dollar bin and it's slowly becoming one of my favourite albums

Bowie's 90s stuff is really underrated.

THIS. That cover art is so unfortunate... makes it look like some shitty bro country album. I thought it was just a meme for the longest time.

>>62013009
I've listened to the Berlin trilogy and Station to Station but not this album. What's it like?

I was expecting it to be mediocre or cringeworthy (Yes has a dated sound IMO) but what I got was an angel's orgasm
>>
>>62013272
Somewhere between Berlin and Let's Dance, but also Robert Fripp is on it
>>
>>62013272
Berlin but more new wave and poppy. has him screaming IT'S NO GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME while some japanese chick rambles in the background. pretty gud

>>62013272

This, plus a Japanese aesthetic. It's very good.

Is Jason Aldean for real? I want to hear the truth
>>
>>62013355
Yes. It's classic country music in the vein of Johnny Cash or Hank Williams, and it has some of the best lyricism I've heard in any genre. It's slow, depressive stuff. His label forced him to use that terrible cover in an attempt to increase his mainstream appeal, which is quite amusing as the average bro who wants to chill to some pop-country would be horribly put off by Aldean's dark and melancholic style.

>going through Genesis' discography
>3.40 rating on RYM

What the fuck? Are people over there that butthurt about prog bands turning pop during the 80s? Even so, this album is prog pop, it blends their earlier sound with pop tendencies surprisingly well. Fuck me if this isn't one of the better albums released by a prog rock band during the early 80s.

Or maybe Discipline, it's so hard to choose.

I guess Night Thoughts would count too, the two tracks released for radio beforehand felt too radio-friendly at first but the rest of the album more than made up for it.

I thought I'd give it a try, since I'm open to all kinds of musics.
Turns out tuvan and mongilian folk/throat singing music is amazing.

heroes.
in spite of being stupidly into bowie for a long time - relatively speaking - this was the album which i just didn't get the hype for. i now consider it his best album, along with lodger, scary monsters and stationtostation of course.
>>62013272
new wavey, grotesque theatre-of-the-absurd pop.
>>62013801
true. what burns and american don are good albums nonetheless, but for respect is definitely more aggressive.
>>62014430
best king crimson album i've listened to.
>>62014550
it obviously is.
>>
I generally avoid mostly everything by Bowie after Scary Monsters but Heathen is a really beautiful record. Definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Blackstar.

the title track is a masterpiece.

>>62016422
Agreed. Love the Wedding and the Wedding Song.

Buddha Of Suburbia is brilliant as well.
>>
>>62016422
IMO, this is tied with Station to Station for Bowie's best album.

Fell for the meme and listened to 4 songs
At times it felt like Brand New crossed with pop-country
Emo-try?

The cover looked so uninviting and the track lenghts made it worse. I couldn't believe them.

That was 6 years ago. I love it.
>>
>>62016852
It's not "emo" just because it discusses dark subjects, you dipshit. I bet you'd call Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake emo too.
>>
>>62016124
2nd this
>>
>>62016893
I specifically chose Brand New because of the instrumentation style not the lyricism
Seriously that guitarist on some songs is like 2000s alt/emo i.e. Brand New
>>
>>62016970
Oh, ok. I've never listened to Brand New, so I assumed you were just making a shallow comment on the lyrics. I quite liked the guitar style. It's an interesting twist on typical country instrumentation.
>>

>>62015198
I was surprised by it as well, everyone hypes up Low but I thought it was dull and bad when I listened to it so I was expecting the same from Heroes. I was gratefully proven wrong.
>>
>>62016999
what's the best song on old boots new dirt?
>>
>>62016891
Really? The cover looks uninviting? That's the exact opposite for me. I love album art like that though.
>>
>>62016891
I had the exact opposite experience with this album

It works a lot better as a full album. There's a lot of progression and self referentiality throughout.

>It works a lot better as a full album
I'm not sure I want to invest 45mins into the Jason Aldean meme
>>
>>62016124
Heathen and everything after it is essential Bowie in my opinion.

Also I'd say Outside and Black Tie White Noise are worth a listen as well.

>>62017066
Low is much better in my opinion. Every song on side 1 has a perfect hook, and side 2 has better electronic experiments than the ones on Heroes.

I like both, but Low is still a much better record for me.

>>62013009
This, and about half of Bowie's discography that I hadn't listened to. Especially>>62013108
and Heathen.
>>
>>62013355
Listen to the full album but really analyze it. It's amazing t.b.h.
>>

i heard so many people talking shit about this album and then I heard it and found out its one of their best albums

>I don't get it so it's a meme

I have listened to all the Bowie I could get my hands on, and didn't expect much from this one but somehow it ended up being one of my top 10 Bowie albums
