Lel, why is your personal arrangements thread in Indonesia?


...hm? What?
I was interpreting the sentence differently in a/n (failed) attempt to make a joke based on the wording order

Someone just checked my personal arrangements thread from... indonesia
As opposed to
"Someone... from Indonesia...? just checked my PAT"

David Bowie (1969) by David Bowie




David Bowie (1969) is the second studio album by David Bowie, released in 1969. What a surprise. This album is also known as Space Oddity (named after its first and most notable track), and has been re-released before under that title, to distinguish it from the previously-reviewed 1967 album. This album, as a whole, tends to have much less of a "hard rock" sound and more of a softer kind of rock (one of the listed genres of the album is folk rock, which would seem to reflect or support this observation). In the video for "Space Oddity," Bowie is even seen playing an acoustic guitar, and unlike, for example, the later "Starman," the acoustic guitar sounds as if it dominates the majority of the song, while "Starman" features much more apparent and distinct heavy electric guitar segments (then again, what do I know? I'm just a casual).

"Cygnet Committee," the album's longest song, is a particularly interesting one as well. It starts out as a slow, somewhat ominous song that gradually builds more and more layers and—though I'm not certain if the tempo of the song increases at all, or if it's just the increasingly impassioned vocals and addition of more noise from the instruments that has that effect—increasing energy throughout the piece, ending with a repeated cry of "We want to live! We want to live! ... I want to live! I want to live! ... Live! Live! Live!" It's very confusing, but again, pretty interesting overall. Worth nothing, the similarly-lengthed "Memory of a Free Festival," which closes out side two (just like "Cygnet Committee" closes the first side) and the album as a whole, follows a similar structure (even ending on a repeated "chant," this time with the lyrics being "The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party"... whatever that's supposed to mean). I'd say the latter of these two songs is the better one, though both are some of the most notable songs on the album aside from, of course, "Space Oddity."


Track List Overview:
Side one
1. "Space Oddity" - 5:16
2. "Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed" - 6:12
3. "Don't Sit Down" (Hidden track appended to "Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed") - 0:42
4. "Letter to Hermione" - 2:36
5. "Cygnet Committee" - 9:35

Side two
6. "Janine" - 3:25
7. "An Occasional Dream" - 3:01
8. "Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud" - 4:52
9. "God Knows I'm Good" - 3:21
10. "Memory of a Free Festival" - 7:09
Total Length: 45:13
Track listing information from here.

Tracks in Platinum are the one I consider to be the absolute best of the album.
Tracks in Gold are ones I consider to be among the artist's best.
Tracks in Red are ones I consider to be standout tracks on the album.


Consistency: 6/10
This album is quite varied, both in the styles of the songs, their lengths, and quality. For example, "Space Oddity" is clearly the best (and most iconic) song on this album and none of the other songs rise to the same level, though most if not all the songs on the album are fairly good overall.

Quality: 7/10
Even if this album is certainly an improvement over the last album, this is still very much one that shows the relative inexperience and stylistic experimentation that many early bands and artists tend to have.

Overall Rating: 7/10
This album is a step up over the previous album, but still a bit of a far cry from later albums. But never fear! It's not going to be too long until we start getting into the definitive classics!

I always thought the chords in #8 of THC's quiz were part of the melody (so the melody would go E-C-C-G-C-C...).
