You're pretty much safe.

Well,the Wall and Dark Side of the Moon


Listen very closely to Meddle. You will then have no choice but to go down the rabbit hole. Fearless will pull you in and won’t let go. Echoes is your sonic fever dream.

70's ZZ Top is great.

For as much as I like to deride the excess of 80s rock, I listened to The Eliminator after watching a documentary on them for no good reason. I really enjoyed it as pure fun.

billy gibbon's solos just do it for me. i cant help but get turned on by the overly bluesy stuff like clapton, krieger, page, etc. im starting to think gibbons is as good as any one of those. i actually like the bass players voice more on 'tush', but honestly i could listen to gibbons solo on top of a tight groove for hours. the rhythm section is super tight, too.

Love 70s ZZ Top. They had so much groove. Fandango is one of the best records ever.

That was a great documentary

Been really falling in love with The Waterboys lately, esp A Pagan Place, This is the Sea and Fisherman's Blues. Anyone want to educate me?

the whole of the moon ranks near the top for me of songs that use so many different instruments (horns, violins etc)

That's a great one. It was used in a show or movie I watched recently, but now I can't remember which one.

How familiar are you with David Bowie? Are we talking handful of singles? Or are we talking you know a couple of records and are looking to dive deeper?

CoS just did a fairly reasonable ranking of all his albums. They rightly put Outside near the top, which makes me have all the trust in the world for whoever wrote this thing.

Bowie's hard because he has such distinct phases to his career. While not a perfect breakdown I would clump them as;

Early years (David Bowie to The Man Who Sold The World) - Finding his way, mostly acoustic but all over the map.
Mick Ronson/Ziggy Stardust years and Plastic Soul years (Hunky Dory to Diamond Dogs and Young Americans) - Ziggy and glam rock, guitars galore.
Station To Station and Berlin Trilogy and Scary Monsters (Station To Station to Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)) - His best years. Avant garde at times and essential.
Pop years and Black Tie (Lets Dance to Never Let Me Down and Black Tie White Noise) - Some hits but not my cup of tea.
Latter years (Outside to Blackstar) - An amazing run of albums to close his career.

I think Bowie is one of the best live artists. My best suggestions is to go through his live albums. The bolded are my favourites.

Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture
Live Santa Monica '72
Cracked Actor 1974
David Live
Live Nassau Coliseum 1976
Stage
Welcome to the Blackout 1978

Serious Moonlight Live 1983
Ouvre le Chien/No Trendy Rechauffe 1995
Glasstonbury 2000
A Reality Tour 2003

Let's Dance is a top tier Bowie record for me. Those first five tracks are bliss and unfuckwithable.

Having said that, I totally get why it wouldn't be one's cup of tea. There are so many phases of Bowie it makes sense that some work well for some and not others. That's kind of his brilliance.

The album version of Let's Dance with the full solo is stunning. SRV's solo and the horns on the latter half of the song rule.

I thought it was universally accepted that Hunky Dory > Ziggy > Aladdin Sane > Diamond Dogs was Bowie's best run. I'll have to spend some more time with the Berlin trilogy etc.

:thumbsup: this is great. i heard 'scary monsters and super creeps' on the radio the other day and forgot how great that song is. i think it depends on your preference for different stages of his career that you pointed out. he's just so all over the place and its always good.
