think it’s probably Scary Monsters side one innit. could be Low side one though. both of these are fucking flawless, imo

hmmm

can someone make this a poll?


#2

I don’t understand the question - how do you get “sides” of a Tidal stream?


#3

refusing to let this one die. solid thread right here, ffs!


#4

Low side one.

Subthread: Has anyone heard that Bowie / NIN bootleg that’s been released recently? Any good?


#5

Side 1 of ‘Let’s Dance’. The opening three tracks of ‘Modern Love’, ‘China Girl’ & ‘Let’s Dance’ are poptastic.


#6

1st side of Hunky Dory
1st side of Low
2nd side of Ziggy Stardust


#7

1st side of Diamond Dogs is really good too


#8

Side one of Hunky Dory’s possibly my favourite half of an album ever.


#9

Diamond Dogs almost edges it for Sweet Thing alone, but I reckon it has to be side one of Low.

Ziggy Stardust or Station to Station for best Side Two…


#10

Diamond Dogs gets some stick, but it’s really only the second side which is a bit flat - side one is amazing: the title track, Rebel Rebel and the Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing medley are all superb


#11

Another vote for Hunny Dory side one.


#12

(Winnie the Pooh remix obviously)


#13

Nobody uses Tidal, so that one’s easily solved.


#14

Low side one… By a distance.


#15

I like Heroes side two a lot. I just love those instrumental tracks for personal nostalgia. I associate them with memories of going on holiday to European cities as a teenager, visiting museums and art galleries. Moss Garden makes me feel really happy.

Diamond Dogs side one is also brilliant. If the side two was equally as strong, it would be a fierce contender for one of the best albums ever.


#16

Would I be cheating if I said both sides of Station To Station?


#17
