Jamming the **** out level = APOCALYPTIC

 

My dad is the one that initially got me into Jazz Fusion. When I was a little kid growing up in Poland my parents listened to a lot of different music, but a good bit of it was Billy Cobham, Jeff Beck, Weather Report, Return to Forever, Herbie Han****, etc. because that's largely what my dad was into. I love my dad.  :wub:

 

Edit: Freakin' stupid auto-censor editing Herbie Hanc0ck. How you gonna besmirch the name of a music legend like that?   :aiee:

Bjork is sort of similar to David Bowie in my mind, except Bowie was MUCH more prolific. Both put out albums that had 1 or 2 HOLY **** AMAZING songs of unbelievable brilliance on them and the rest were either filler or just stuff that my feeble mortal brain was beyond comprehending, with the exception of 1 or 2 MASTERPIECE albums top to bottom. In the case of Bjork it was "Post" and in the case of Bowie it was "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars" and "Aladdin Sane".

Bowie has a few more than 2 masterpieces, but I can see the connection.

Yeah, it's not a 1 to 1 comparison, but my point was that both artists has a plethora of songs that just sort of escaped me and a few songs that were on some next-level unbelievable amazing ****. Bowie had more of these amazing tunes, that's not to besmirch Bjork, who I am a big fan of, it's just that Bowie is one of the Greatest of All Time.

 

 

Fun fact: Bowie was on a steady diet of cocaine, milk, and peppers when he recorded this masterpiece. That's not even a joke. Bowie himself had said he doesn't know how he lived through this period.

 

Sufragette City is the lowkey best Bowie song ever

 

 

Go ahead and @ me

My favorite Bowie song, which makes it all the more fantastic that it's the closer on my favorite Bowie album.

Fun fact, it's written as a jungian interpretation of a woman's unconscious mind in the style of a James Bond credit roll track.

Bowie was so far beyond normal human understanding via MASSIVE amount of cocaine and Crowley-esque black sex magic that the majority of his brilliance escapes most of us.

 

Here's another favorite of mine:

I don't disagree with the remark myself but I would highlight different albums from both. I feel Björk's best is Vespertine, and Bowie's Blackstar and Hunky Dory. Though, Station to Station, Low and Heroes are all mighty solid as well.

I'm still very proud that I figure that the name was meant to be read A lad insane without having to google it.

I'm pretty sure this what what Arnold meant when he said drugs are bad for you.
