No Bowie aficionados? I am astonied! Bowie was something of a philosophizer (not exactly a philosopher, if you understand the nuance) in the seventies. There are allusions to Nietzsche, Kahlil Gibran and Kierkegaard in his early music. I've even written a Hegelian interpretation of one of his albums. I implore you all to purchase his early work.

Now, on with the list:

1) David Bowie- The Width of a Circle
2) David Bowie- The Supermen
3) David Bowie- Five Years
4) David Bowie- Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (reprise)
5) David Bowie- Big Brother/Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family
6) David Bowie- Lady Grinning Soul
…Bowie ad infinitum…
7) Brian Eno- Golden Hours
8) King Crimson- Islands
9) Lou Reed- Last Great American Whale
10) The Beatles- Yer Blues
11) Nick Drake- Five Leaves Left
12) Elvis Costello- Shot With His Own Gun
13) The Clash- Guns on the Roof
14) Pulp- Countdown
15) The Who- Quadrophenia (The entire album)
16) Peter Gabriel- Intruder
17) Talking Heads- Don’t Worry About the Government
…Talking Heads ad infinitum…
18) Brian Eno- Burning Airlines Give You So Much More
19) The Beatles- The Fool on the Hill
20) Steely Dan- Bodhisattva
21) Kraftwerk- The Robots
22) Ultravox- Vienna
23) Iggy Pop- Mass Production
24) Televison- Torn Curtain
25) David Byrne- What a Day That Was
…

Quite frankly I'm appalled by some of the shite you guys and gals subject yourself to. I recommend doses of:

Fugazi - Waiting Room
Neil Young - Comes-a-Time
Rival Schools + Oneminutewarning - Where I'm From
System Of A Down - Sugar
Richard Cheese - Baby Got Back
Nico - These Days
Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
Tortoise - The Taut & The Tame
Weezer - Across The Sea
Jonny Cymball - Mr Bassman
Anything by the White Stripes (saw 'em last night - wooh!)
My Bloody Valentine - You Made Me Realise
The Aislers Set - Hit The Snow
Air - Run
Outkast - Spread
Television - Marquee Moon
Gang Of Four - Damaged Goods
Devo - Whip It
Sugarcubes - Motorcrash

There, that's enough to do yerself a tape that is.. :o :) 8) :D :roll:

Buying CDs? As in CDs recordings on them? Isn't that a bit passé?

Ohhh, you should check out Therion, Pocky. Good German metal chamber pseudo operatic music.

I'm glad to hear SOMEONE out there likes MUSE other than just little ol me. Everyone else generally turns their nose up at them.

You should also check out Zeromancer!! Oh em gee. Their new album is soooo different from their older stuff. It's more U2-ish and less Orgy-ish. It's really good. But, hey, I like their visual rock period, too.

Have you tried Flesh Field? Excellent EBM with female vocals. And I have to second Tori Amos.

Jimi Hendrix's cover of "Like a Rolling Stone" at the Monterey concert.

Runs cold chills through me everytime.
