    It's been that way forever. We used to call him David the Merciless for all the "remaster with 1 or 2 unreleased songs" releases.

    The Hearts Filthy Lesson is a tremendous alarm on the weekends.

    Because of the alarm above I went back and gave Outside another listen. There's a lot going on there, and I still don't understand it even with the diary. Some great layering and effects on a set of good headphones.

    Lazy indeed..

    These new Visconti mixes of perfectly fine Bowie songs are pointless and unnecessary. That Holy Holy one sounds way overblown compared even to the original mix. It was cool when Ryko reissued Bowie's stuff on CD in the early 90s with the bonus tracks, because CDs were relatively new and it gave his earlier stuff a nice boost in sound quality. These new mixes just smack of vulturing. Not going to be suckered into buying something I already have that sounds fine as is..

    The Ryko remaster of "Holy Holy" sounded like hot trash, tho. Dunno what chewed up tape, bad needle drop, or shitbum early-90s computer denoising they were using, but it was FUBAR compared to the original 7", or the re-remastered Parlophone version on Re:Call 1. Bowie vetoed it and they used the 1974 Spiders version instead. And the original single was never mixed to stereo, before Visconti did it last year, so that alone was a good enough reason to remix from the original session tape. Your mileage, of course, may vary...

    Holy Holy is one of Bowie's worst songs (from the 70s anyway) so who cares what Tony does with it.

    I can't believe a song about demonic sex magick isn't getting more love on a NIN forum, of all places.

    Some of us can't believe how a supergroup featuring members of NIN, Tool, Pantera and Depeche Mode (amongst others) doesn't get more love on a NIN forum, of all places, but hey...your mileage may vary..

    Sometimes you get so lonely
    Sometimes you get nowhere
    I've lived all over the world
