    Station to Station is one of my favourite albums.
  • Deleted user 8 January 2013 21:52:57
    Led zeppelin, Marvin Gaye, rolling stones, bob Dylan, pink flloyd, black Sabbath, the who etc all released better albums in the 70s.

    Not saying bowie isn't good, just laughing at the suggestion he ruled the 70s. Maybe if you a bowie super fan.

    But that's a good thing imo. Bit of mellowing and reflection never goes amiss, adds to the track

    He said run of albums. Meaning they were all winners in a row, which is hard to argue with imo... It wasn't a direct comparison

    I don't mind the mellowness or reflection, just a bit shocked to hear how aged his voice has gotten really. Be interested to hear the new album though all the same.

    If you want to go run then led zeppelin still had a better run. 3,4,houses of the holy, physical graffiti, precense. 2 only missed the 70s by 8 weeks.

    Bowie has long been one of my favourite artists and I think the new track is not at bad. He has written so many phenomenal songs it isn't funny. Much of his best work is obscured by the more famous tracks on albums though. Quicksand or Cat People are good examples.

    A discussion on who had the best musical output in the 70's is pointless. Horses for courses. Abba could just as easily be thrown into the ring for great albums. Whatever floats your boat innit?

    No disputing that Bowie is a fabulous, inventive and interesting musician though.

    Like I said I'm not disputing bowies quality. That is unquestionable. However led zeppelins output between 69 and 76 was to be blunt, fucking insane.

    Bowie had more talent back then than the majority of UK musicians put together. Zeppelin did Zeppelin I and Phyisical Graffiti. Maybe III. Bowie wipes th floor with them.

    I'm sick of that track already because Radio 6 decided to play it every half hour, and between songs every DJ would go on incessantly about it and the man himself.

    Radio 6 is weird - it's called Radio 6 Music but the DJs talk far far too much especially those 2 guys at lunch (Radcliffe and Macony?).

    One things for sure. Artists were developed back then. Look at the output of Van Morrison or Supertramp. It's almost an album a year. Amazing times.

    Listening to Station to Station now. I can't think of many musicians who released as many awesome records back-to-back as Bowie did.

    To be honest, I'm not a huge Bowie fan, but he has seemed to nailed growing old gracefully.
    Maybe he'll be dead next month.

    This is what I am wondering. Maybe it's more than a very nice birthday present. He does sound tired on that track.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    @Syrette Outside of office hours, it is less playlisted and less chatty. Some brilliant sessions on Marc Riley's show. Weekends are interesting.

    Are you retarded? I laughed at the point that his output was unmatched and then later said he is quality. Now unless you are a retard that is bot a contradiction.

    Just struck me as an odd way to start your argument if you were arguing there were also consistently good acts in the 70s. Seems obvious to me there was a little exaggeration for effect in what Figgis wrote.

    Also, I am a little retarded, thanks for asking.

    I assume your implying that albums like 2 and 4 are not brilliant? 2 is just phenomenal. Tracks like heartbreakwe and lemon song.

    We need to all start adding IMO at the end of every post so no one confuses opinion for fact.

    IMO.

    One track does not make an album. And no, they're not as good as you want them to be, either.
  • Deleted user 9 January 2013 00:59:27
    One track?
  • Deleted user 9 January 2013 01:03:59
    70s good times for music. 60s too.

    Now we get one direction and flo rida stuffed down our throats.
