Default The Chameleon. David Bowie Reviewed.



This is a discography thread with a difference. Bowies discography is one of the most varied out there and he has many fans that love certain areas of his music more than others. So with this in mind why not all the MB fans choose and review an album each?

I will post a list of his albums and you put yourself forward to review an album of your choice.

RULES:

1. You can only nominate one album at a time to review
2. First come, first served. No credentials are needed (apart from being a fan obviously!).
3. Once you have put your name forward you will be assigned that album and unless stated by yourself, expected to do a detailed review.
4. All reviews will be chronologically posted so if you choose a later album then you can perfect your review until it is time to post.
5. I will announce when the next review is ready to be added according to comments on previous reviews.
6. If there are some albums not covered then members can opt to review an extra album.

Discography:

David Bowie (1967)
Space Oddity (1969)
The Man Who Sold the World (1970) jayjamjah
Hunky Dory (1971)
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) Comus
Aladdin Sane (1973) booboo
Pin Ups (1973)
Diamond Dogs (1974)
Young Americans (1975) bulldog
Station to Station (1976)PMO
Low (1977)
"Heroes" (1977)
Lodger (1979)
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980)
Let's Dance (1983)
Tonight (1984)
Never Let Me Down (1987)
Black Tie, White Noise (1993)
The Buddha of Suburbia (1993)
1.Outside (1995) Jackhammer
Earthling (1997)
'Hours...' (1999)
Heathen (2002) Lucifer Sam
Reality (2003)

I'll take The Man Who sold the World

Outside is a hell of a pick Lee, I can't wait to see what would motivate you take that with having your pick of the litter.

Could anything be more fitting then alternating reviewers for a Bowie discography review!?

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I think Outside is a brilliant album personally and I just hope that this unusual approach pays dividends!

That was my second choice.

I think my pick laid the groundwork for that epic.

Great Minds think alike Comus. We..., I mean...they truly do.

A reminder
to all those who have alrady committed and those considering to finish your initial review ASAP to help this thread keep steam once it gets going.
