Shouldn't you be listening to Sigur Ros or something, SRP?

I have acknowledged the 80s as a bad period for Bowie. Not everyone can make a masterpiece like Manscape at that point in their career. :rolleyes:

My fiancee's review first: "This sounds like Phil Collins on heroin - It really sucks! I give it a negative 10! It's definitely worse than 'Hanky Panky'!"

Now my review: THIS ALBUM HAS NO GODDAMNED MELODIES ON IT!!!! It's just slow, lifeless, cheesy synth beats (they should have been ashamed of themselves releasing something this "1983" in 1990) with cheesy synths on top. Is there even actually a band playing on this record? I sure don't hear one! I also hear WAY too many songs with that bass player singing. Bad bad stuff. There's one "punky" song but it goes on for over SEVEN MINUTES.

Let's just say that they've long since forgotten what made them so great in the first place.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Then why act aggressively and suggest I'm being a Hoy—that I'm wrong—when I mentioned the Prophets Sales?

Yeah, Manscape, well, I like two or three songs off it, plus a b-side. It's, uh, yeah.

Because when I pointed out that that made no sense whatsoever, you said you were "validated." Which is one step from just adding this little douche: :cool:
