    Basically, Rykodisc did an 'Au20' series of a bunch of Bowie's albums back in 1996 geared towards audiophiles. Over the past few months I've been idly salivating over that Five Years boxset and in researching its contents found that there's a long history of dissatisfaction with the sound of Bowie's catalogue on CD, notably with a number of folks even preferring the original mid-80's RCA discs, to the extent that that particular mastering of Station To Station was included as one of the featured discs on that insane super deluxe $300 edition a while back. So I'm doing some digging to see how his albums feel on prior masters.

    I'm not one of those who squints at waveforms or anything, and it really does boil down to how one enjoys hearing their music - but after going through even the Rykodisc version of Scary Monsters (which was not even part of the Au series), I find that there's just so much more space between the instruments and I feel like they're better defined (strumming in Scary Monsters' title track as one example), that there's a much fuller sound. There are whole instruments and details through the whole of Low I don't remember hearing; Subterraneans in particular sounds just sounds like it has more layers to it. I'd say after listening to these they really focused on making everything sort of louder and punchier for the 1999 masters.

    I haven't bothered to listen to anything else by Enya but this because I'm pretty sure the only reason I like these songs is because during downtime/nap time in school my teacher would put this on. I don't know if she played this one since...doing the math, it wasn't released when I was in kindergarten, but if I had downtime in 2nd grade, it would have been this album...mm...anyways, I loved it so much I made my mom buy me the CD, I'm pretty sure it's my first CD. Anyways, I went several years without listening to it because it was cringe-worthy. Now, sometimes at night, I still like to listen to it- it's a big cheesy but it's instrumentally very interesting and hits a soft spot for me, haha.

    Edit. So I've officially listened to songs from other albums and wow, doe they all sound the same, I mean, I'm not sure this is in a good or bad way but it's definitely a strikingly singular sound she has.

    Currently listening to (and loving) this. I highly recommend it to indie folk fans. It's simply beautiful.

    i haven't actually listened to any Oneohtrix Point Never but my friend (who also recently reviewed Grimes' new album) reviewed his newest release, and it's really making me want to check it out.

    This beast would have easily made it to my fave records of 2014. I discovered it a few days ago. Mind-blowing.

    Theres not an album out there that is more important to me than this one. I get burnt out on bands and albums all the time but after 10 years I still listen to this thing very very regularly. It's perfect, from sowing season to handcuffs...ugh

    They're in a style and genre and grouped in with a lot of acts I just don't really click with but that record is absolutely incredible. The first time I heard it, by the time I hit Degausser I just couldn't believe how strong it was.

    If this album clicked with you look up Mean Everything To Nothing by Manchester Orchestra. Love them so much too ❤️❤️

    see, i just can't get into manchester orchestra at all.

    also, "handcuffs" is the ONLY song on "the devil and god..." that i don't love. it feels like a weak ending note after such a powerful record. daisy, on the other hand, is fucking brilliant from start to finish, and i'm sad they're supposedly going back to their more pop-punk-y sound for the new album

    Thats so weird, I like daisy a lot but It's far from my favorite. In order I'd put

    1. Devil and god
    2. Deja
    3. Daisy
    4. Favorite weapon
    5-98. Anything
    99. Taking back sunday
