5-0 out of 5 stars Loyal AFI Fan!!!
Decemberunderground is one of the greatest cd's ever!!! I love all of AFI's music and bands do change there style to keep up to date.Davey's style keeps the band going and his voice is great!!!Jade's style with his guitar is his own!! Every song on this CD is excellent and you will never tire of it. Even if you have never heard of AFI, you will love this CD, give it a try!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a shabby followup

3-0 out of 5 stars A bold new direction.....in cruise control.
AFI is one of the more exciting acts in the quasi-rock mainstream.While they aren't risk takers in the Tim Buckley sense, they certainly aren't scared of adding fresh interesting levels to their maturing foundation. This of course accumliated in their best release to date,"Sing the Sorrow."This isn't the case with "December Underground" as they appear to have cut themselves down to the old punk quick so that they may construct an entirely different sound from the rubble.

5-0 out of 5 stars Elton John's finest hour and one of the Top 10 Studio Double albums in History
Elton John's seventh studio album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was released in October of 1973 on MCA Records here in the US and DJM Records in his native England.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Road Begins
There have been very few records that really shined from the 1970's, that people really appreciate today. Although more of them came from the styles of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, the Disco appeal of Saturday Night Fever with the Bee Gees, and the clever distinction of Billy Joel's storytelling on his 1977 album The Stranger. For Elton John, his appeal from all his eras have been filled with promise, delight, and the comfort of a good pop album. Although he had numerous hits and multiple records since 1969, he also made a appeal with making one of the very few double albums, that not just remained definitive, its story is everlasting.

5-0 out of 5 stars They dont make good music like this anymore!
When queen was in their prime, I was a young child. I do have memories of hearing some of their more popular songs on the radio. Under Pressure and Another one Bites The Dust for example, are songs I heard over and over again. Now that im a bit older, I appreciate this bands musical contributions even more. Most of the songs on disc 2 seem to be 80's trash. Their 70's material in my opinion is just light years better then their 80's stuff. Although I will say that I think "Who Wants To Live Forever" is an exception. I first heard this song while watching Highlander in 1985. That and "Under Pressure" are definitely the gems of disc 2.

5-0 out of 5 stars 'Cause it's Queen ...
OK, let's get this straight ... some younger fans tuned into Queen in the 80's and that's ok, but by then many original fans had tuned out and were busy making a living to keep up with all the trash that came out in that decade.
5-0 out of 5 stars Rediscover this historic band
I had been a casual Queen fan most of my life - well, ever since Wayne's World made Bohemian Rhapsody a hit. At the time, I got myself a copy of "A Night At The Opera," and have enjoyed it in the years since. (In fact, I recommend it as a companion to this greatest hits collection.)

Editorial Review

Queen brought a whole new meaning to the phrase over the top. While rock & roll flamboyance stretched back at least as far as Little Richard, Freddie Mercury continued to camp it up, taking little seriously and smirking at the music's growing pretensions while partaking in them no small bit. Many of the band's singles hold up extremely well, such as "Killer Queen" and "You're My Best Friend". The quartet's canny sense of melody and sophisticated vocal harmonies--not to mention Mercury's raised eyebrow--have traveled well through the years. Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I Honestly Don't Understand Why This Band is So Loved
I just don't like Queen. Their songs never fail to bore me and/or worse; the songs in their catalogue are too pretentious and way too overdone. They are way, way, overplayed also. I get very strong allergic reactions every time I hear "Bohemian Rhapsody" on the radio and the only cure is switching the radio station fast. Ironically, "Bohemian Rhapsody" isn't even on this compilation, which is odd, but I don't have time to worry about it. Also, by the age of three weeks old, every being on Earth has heard "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions" at least 150 times. "Another One Bites the Dust" is a boring song in which not enough happens, while "Killer Queen" is a sappy vocal song. I like Queen's "Somebody to Love" but that's about it.
1-0 out of 5 stars ..AND THIS IS A ROCK BAND?
Has any band ever aspired to be thought of in the same breath as Led Zep or Deep Purple than Queen? It is debatable apart from the first album and the odd single that they could be classed as a rock band ( i hold up 'radio gaga' for proof probably one of the most trite songs in musical history or since, well 'fat bottomed girls')) In fact Queen were nothing if not a pompous mish mash of rock and pop and failing on all counts all with the help of Roy Thomas Baker who suceeded in over producing everything he twiddled his knobs on (check out Lone Star's first album) Brian May plays the same guitar solo throughout. He claims the late great Rory Gallagher as an influence-(can't see it myself)and Freddie Mercury just wanted to be an opera singer (i want to break free is his absolute nadir) you get an attempt at rockabilly (crazy little thing called love) and every drummers standard party peice (we will rock you)alongside a host of other radio friendly drivel. Come on never has a band had such pretensions as Queen. They never were sure what they wanted to be and if there aspirations were to be considered one of the all time greats like Purple or Zeppelin then they and there mass of devotees were sadly dissapointed) How they became so massive is a mystery as much as why INXS were popular.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great companion to "Classic Queen"
First of all, I would like to preface this about all the complaints that Bohemian Rhapsody and Under Pressure are not here....that's right, it's because they're on "Classic Queen", which also was released in 1992 (and actually sold more initially).If you buy the two cd's together, you'll GET IT. Both collections are great and you need both to have the complete Queen picture. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars He sure wasn't knighted for nothing!!!
This CD of Elton John's "Greatest Hits" proves that Elton John is one of the very few Godfathers in the world of music. Even decades later these songs are great songs; he still performs "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" at many of his concerts even today.
5-0 out of 5 stars Many Great Songs, Even If A Few Are A Bit Hokey
Elton John's first GREATEST HITS album is almost as great as his second, but it contains a few songs that are either drab (the opening ballad, "Your Song") or totally hokey ("Honky Cat", "Crocodile Rock"). Nevertheless, there is much great stuff here, including "Rocket Man", a beautiful ballad about husbandhood, the hard-rocking "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting", which provided the prototype for a lot of 80s hair bands, the Marilyn Monroe tribute "Candle In The Wind", the glam-rock anthem "Bennie And The Jets", the let's-get-back-to-reality song "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", the paean to perseverance "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me", and "The Border Song", whose references to Moses inspired me to go to my parents' house for Passover, despite various family issues. You should make this collection, HONKY CHATEAU, GREATEST HITS, VOL. 2, GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD, CARIBOU, and ROCK OF THE WESTIES your first Elton John purchases.

The album is great. Although it doesn't contain all of Elton's best songs, the quality is high. The hits Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me and Your Song made this album a very special one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a masterful work
This is a perfect album...and I am not even a big Bowie fan! Sonically, production wise, musically, the arrangements, the pacing as well as the strength of the songs...this is a brilliant work.
5-0 out of 5 stars Stardust Memories
David Bowie's fifth LP transformed him into (duh) a rock 'n roll star. There was much promise of him becoming one with his third CD, The Man Who Sold the World. However, he then backed up a bit - in terms of volume, not quality - with the unbelievably masterful Hunky Dory, a mosaic of rock, pop, folk, psychedelia, and whatever else was in arm's reach. On The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars, Bowie's flair for the dramatic became a full-blown obsession. While uptempo hard rock once again formed the core of the record, gentle acoustic numbers and genuine pop was not neglected. The result was what may or may not be his greatest record, but it is certainly his definitive one, ie, it is the one that best defines him.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bowie Rules

I first heard Kill Hannah on a tour with Clear Static and Shiny Toy Guns earlier this year. I was hooked with the first set I heard from them. (I went on to hear them twice more in the next 3 days.)
5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this cd.
If you are unfamilar with Kill Hannah, then buy either of their albums available here on amazon.
3-0 out of 5 stars Glam rock that shifts gears often enough to cause engine damage.
As elegant as it is over the top, as sophisticated as it is bombastic, Chicago based Kill Hannah's second major label offering balances between excess and subtlety while never letting one outweigh the other. High energy glam rock anthems like 'Love You to Death' and album's first single 'Lips Like Morphine' hold nothing back while slower and decidedly mellower selections like 'Black Poison Blood' and 'The Collapse' recall the pleasant, drawn out melodies of Smashing Pumpkins' later days. While this balance of polarized song styles makes for a varied and enjoyable record, sometimes the group delves a bit too far into each side. Some tracks go beyond being subtle, becoming dull and tedious ('Statues Without Eyes') while others are almost too over the top to be taken seriously (see the 80's synth pop excess of 'Crazy Angel'). Overall, Until There's Nothing Left of Us is a solid and enjoyable effort and the album's excellent last three songs more than compensate for its few steps in the wrong direction. ... Read more

When I first heard this I thought it was the corniest music I've ever heard. Then I listened to it more and more and grew appreciaton for all the songs. Now I am a huge Queen fan with all of their albums. This is the best Compilation I've ever heard.

This was my first full length Queen purchase.Back in 1992 I used to pop it into my cassette walkman (remember those?) and listen all night, when I was doing dishes, doing homework, etc.I never tired of it.I am still not tired of it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Queen
I have listened to queen ever since I was a kid. There music is so kinetic and inspiring. Freddie Mercury had a voice that couldn't be beaten. This album is one of my favorites. It contains a great selection of their best stuff, from "Bohemian Rhapsody" to "These are the Days of Our Lives", early and new. I also believe Queen to be highly underated. I rarely hear them on the radio and many people I have talked to can only think of "We will Rock You" when I ask them if they have heard of Queen.

While most of their teen peers were embracing nascent '70s U.K. punk with all the snotty 'tude they could muster, Sheffield's Def Leppard instead infused then-moribund metal with bracing pop smarts. Having long since sold a gazillion or two records with that formula, the '80s superstars pay homage to the eclectic, chart-savvy tastes that spawned it on this collection of covers, recharging their contemporary fortunes a bit in the bargain. Their takes on Me Decade standards like The Faces' "Stay With Me," Badfinger's "No Matter What," and T Rex's "20th Century Boy" may be arguably Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Really Good...
but I can't help feeling a tad worried about these boys, being one of the last 80's hard rock bands left. Why, you might wonder. The answer is quite simple: there are a few "statements" that any recording artist should consider very carefully before actually making them, and these are, (in order, 1 being the most delicate): 5)a live album 4)an unplugged record 3)a greatest hits 2)a "covers" album 1)an album of re-recorded, remixed, updated hits. Such records, more often than not, become an artist's swan song (the examples are WAY too numerous to mention), since they are often the result of a contractual obligation, and many other times, they fortell the impending decline of a band that has little or nothing else to say. Considering that the last release from the Leppard boys WAS a greatest hits, I'd say we SHOULD be worried...I'm hoping I'm wrong, though, 'cause they are one of my fav bands...but to be honest with y'all, I've RARELY been proven wrong about things such as this...Anyway...Artistic worries aside, I think that the record is very good from a musical point of view: I knew the vast majority of these songs,as well as the artist that originally performed them beforehand (although I must admit that I'd never heard of John Kongos before...), and the end results are great! The album is great because, in my humble opinion, it succeeds in doing 3 critical things: 1)the new versions remain true to the spirit and emotion of the originals, which is THE most difficult thing to do when making a cover (how many HORRORS have we had to endure because of this very issue? too many to count...)2)the songs, while being covers, also show the inprint of the band's own personality 3)the trademark sound of the band is preserved, while at the same time it is updated, in other words, this doesn't sound like "Hysteria", but you can immediately tell that this is Def Leppard. Personally, I enjoy cover albums (The Spaghetti Incident, Acid Eaters, etc), and 13 years ago thanks to GN'R, I ended up discovering a myriad of great bands thanks to their own cover album: being a diehard, i took time to read ALL the liner notes, including their last message "do yourself a favor,go get the originals." The Leps don't actually say as much, but I think the message in implied in their own liner notes as well. Who knows? Maybe this will spark a new wave of interest in 70's rock? I think that would be great! But on to the music: this record IS NOT a glam cover record! (Just as GN'R record WAS NOT a punk cover album...) granted, Sweet, Bowie and T-Rex were definitely glam, but on the other hand, Thin Lizzy, Free, The Kinks and/or Badfinger WERE NOT glam. This is a tribute to their earliest influences, some of which happened to be glam. Most of the songs rock, and they are trully faithful renditions of the originals, with maybe a change here or there. My personal favorites are "Don't Believe a Word" (one of my fav Lizzy songs, and I couldn't be happier with the result), "Waterloo Sunset", "A little bit of Love", "20th Century Boy" (is he by any chance the boyfriend of the "21st Century Sha-la-la-la Girl"?) and "No matter what". A couple of songs can throw you off a little bit, especially if you're a hard rocker, such as John Kongos "He's gonna step on you again" and Bowie's "Drive-in Saturday". Now, don't get me wrong, they are great, but a little different from the rest of the album. But in the case of Bowie's tune, I feel it is a decidedly improvement over the original, which I never really liked, and I finally realized why: Bowie's delivery is flat and uninspired, the total opposite from Joe Elliott's. Again, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's likely to see Joe win any "best vocalist" accolades for his job here, but I believe he is a great singer and does a great work here. I only have two more observations: 1)why did they include YET AGAIN "No matter what", which was already On their Greatest Hits package, when they had additional songs to choose from, such as Space Oddity, Search and Destroy, etc??? 2)how come their version of "Hell Raiser" sounds a little stiff? This is very weird, especially since the Leps had done "Action" 13 years ago for "Retroactive", and their version was by far superior than the original; in this case, the song sounds good, but I guess I'll stick with the original. All in all, this is a great album, an although I'm not old enough to remember those days (as Sav says), I have been able to greatly enjoy the music from that era. Make yourself a favor and give this record a try, and while you're at it, check out the originals, too!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah! by Def Leppard
I have always been a Def Leppard fan since 1979.Their music has always been great.Their CD Yeah is also great.It contains music that has been done by other artists but vamped up and done Leppard style.I think it adds a great twist to the originals and shows how good rock and roll still is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard - 'Yeah!' (Mercury)
Review no.98.Total of fourteen tracks,'Yeah!' simply has to be ONE of the best all-cover CD's I've ever heard.I've just recently caught Leppard on their current summer co-headlining tour with Journey,as they superbly played two of the best cuts off this CD,T.Rex's "20th Century Boy" and David Essex's Rock On" (I've heard fans go nuts over hearing this tune,saying it's the best song to hit the airwaves in years). Other outstanding tracks here are Badfinger's "No Matter What", The Face's FM staple "Stay With Me",Free's "Little Bit Of Love" and ELO's "10538 Overture".A must-have.Highly recommended. ...

Director Wes Anderson's jewel of a comic-character study revolves around the quirks and obsessions of Bill Murray's titular Cousteau-esque deep-sea adventurer and his motley crew of associates. As they did for the director's equally sublime Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Mark Mothersbaugh and acoustic Bowie in Portuguese
Like the movie, the soundtrack is about enjoying the details. For example:
4-0 out of 5 stars Features fine Bowie covers
For me, Seu Jorge's Portguese covers of David Bowie songs were the main attraction of this soundtrack.His voice is rough and expressive.Accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, he reveals the strength of the original material by showing us how well the basic song structures translate to such a different method of presentation.

4-0 out of 5 stars For Rushmore and RT soundtrack fans

Editorial Review

The precursor to Bowie's masterpiece, The Rise And Fall of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Hunky Dory points in many of the same musical directions as Ziggy, with Bowie camping it up outrageously through a mixture of cabaret piano, coquettish lyrics and soaring vocals. After the hard rock "The Man Who Sold The World", Mick Ronson's guitar is turned down in favour of plenty of piano and acoustic guitar, as Bowie proves his mettle as a masterful singer-songwriter. Not a dull note is struck on the whole album, which flits from opener "Changes" to the vampy "Oh! You Pretty Thing" to the heart-wrenching "Life On Mars" with a seemingly impeccable ear for a tune. Flirty, sexy and irresistibly seductive. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars love this album
amazing. rick wakemen from yes plays piano in this and plays better than I have ever heard him play in anything else that he did apart from yes. intenese and unique. listen to this. a genuine record. harmonies and instruments fit together perfect the sort of intensity that only Bowie could pull off. best songs are life on mars, andy warhol, and the bewley brothers, and oh you pretty boy. i enjoy the lyrics. anyone have anything to reccomend to me?

4-0 out of 5 stars Some fine moments but not as strong as ZIGGY overall
Those pointing out this disc is not a 'rocker' are correct: Mick Ronson's guitar is seldom allowed to strut his stuff here so those who only like jam-o-ramas will think this one is "weak". Instead, there's a lot of focus on strong piano lines to guide the melodies here (YES' Rick Wakeman on the ivories). Midtempo poppers like the well-known "Changes" and "Oh! You Pretty Things" exemplify the sound here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars An unbiased review:
First and foremost buy this album because "More Than This" and "Avalon" are, of course, worth the price. I would say that the remainder of the album may be appreciated by true musicians because of the complex guitar playing, keyboard, and the mixing together of this. But everyone else won't really appreciate the other songs. Sometimes you listen to an album which has a hit and some of the other songs are really good and we think, "That song is so catchy that it could have been a hit, too." Well, not the rest of "Avalon". I would consider it filler (just fine as far as the record company goes and understandably so.)The remainder is good to listen to while washing the dishes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous.
Roxy Music's final hour was characterized by lush atmospherics similar to Joy Division or Tears for Fears. I love "Avalon" because it is so strikingly different from everything else that they have recorded. "For Your Pleasure" is one of the greatest albums of the 70s, but "Avalon" definitely tops the 80s list.
5-0 out of 5 stars space-age bachelor pad music...
Impeccable studio recording. Subliminally romantic.

An essential figure in any history of the American grotesque, son-of-a-preacher-man Vincent Furnier served as a missing link between Screamin' Jay Hawkins and Marilyn Manson. As Alice Cooper, he helped make the pop world safe for morbidity and makeup, scoring a bunch of hits and misses along the way. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY COOPER FAN!
What can you say about the musical career of this guy Alice Cooper. You either loved his work or you hated it. He is a great performer either on stage or in a recording studio. His wide range of songs really shows in this collection. So much I started buying some of his other CD releases. Which by the way "Welcome To My Nightmare" is still a favorite. All the selections on this CD is worth the investment. A brilliant singer/songwriter/performer of the 70's & 80's. I remember hearing this story back on the week ofJune 2, 1973 when "No More Mister Nice Guy" was on American Top 40 with Casey Kasem. It started out as Alice was to meet with a record producer at a fine restaurant in midtown Manhatten. As Alice walked into the establishment he'd noticed people were staring at him pointing and snickering at him because, he was in full make-up and costume. And all through the meal a table close to him was being very rude towards Alice. So Alice and his party finished their meal first. When Alice got up to leave he walked over to the table stood beside of the guy that was the loudest, put his hand affectionately on his shoulder and said with great sincerity "Gee, it's great to see you again!" Then left the guy to the mercy of his friends. Anyway this is a must for any fan of Alice Cooper."ENJOY!" ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Roxy Masterpiece- 5 stars ain't enough!
This album is by far the best of Roxy's catalogue (I own all their albums except Heart Still Beating and Live 2001). It deserves 10 STARS! If you buy only one Roxy studio album (hard not to, they're all bloody brilliant, even a few tracks of Manifesto), this must be it! Here are my opinions on the tracks:
5-0 out of 5 stars What a Great Album!
This album is everything that is good about Roxy Music. It's hard to imagine any album that so perfectly encompasses what they're all about. Don't let the racy sleeve make you think this album is trying to sell itself on that. It rocks all the way through, and it just sounds like a great exercise in how to sound stylish and not at all boring.
5-0 out of 5 stars It's the COUNTRY LIFE for me !!
For the fan of ROCK and ROLL who loves immediately memorable hooks accompanied with amazingly hard driving Pop Rock.No one who LOVES rock and roll couldn't love "The Thrill Of It All" or "Casanova" or any other song on this superb album.This is the hot whip crack ROXY MUSIC; the band that does not have a bad album, but despite the bickering between fans that occur due to allegiances to particular incarnations (all the way through AVALON) COUNTRY LIFE is undoubtedly one of their very best.Brian Ferry could not stop writing wonderful, masterful, Rock and Roll songs, exploring all of their roots, which come to fruition with this album and Roxy's next masterpiece SIREN.COUNTRY LIFE is one of the 1970s most fun, resonant, compelling, and, well, offensively wrapped albums...please note only BLIND FAITH's eponymous album cover was presumed more scandalously overt (or maybe Lennon and Ono's TWO VIRGINS which was, however, discreetly blank on the outside)...okay, I expect Brian Ferry did not mean to offend, but merely to lampoon his lusty ideals.One cannot listen to this album, look at that cover, and not love the 1970s and ROXY MUSIC, and this HOT as HOT POP ROCK CAN GET record album.And ROXY MUSIC, at that point, would apparently do nearly anything ("All I Want Is You") to chart a record in the USA...and they did, with those booby models on the cover, this record album peaked in March of 1975 at number 37 on the BILLBOARD Top 40 Albums chart with a mere 3 weeks on that chart (and there were still no USA single hits at this point).There were a lot of great albums out there in 1974 and 1975.Even with its scandalous (so to speak) cover, COUNTRY LIFE was overlooked in the USA, yet, relentlessly, has slowly floated to the surface, elbowing its way past contemporaries to be recognized as one of the VERY BEST of that year and that decade.You can hear everybody who was influenced by it...just listen to it!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A Fun Album---Not A Masterpiece
Elton John was at the height of his poularity during this period.Having just released the phenominal Goodybye Yellow Brick Road less than a year earlier, this follow up pales by comparison.Yeah, there are some WONDERFUL songs on Caribou.Bitch Is Back, Don't Let The Sun..., Pinky, and Ticking come to mind.
3-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant mixed with not so brilliant
I have owned CARIBOU since it was released in 1974 and it is one of Elton's most difficult classic-period studio albums.No other classic-period album contains musical brilliance mixed with so much material that is average at best. *Grimsby*, *Solar Prestige a Gammon*, *You're So Static*, *I've Seen the Saucers* and *Stinker* are all okay.Some of these songs have their moments, the horns on *Stinker* and *You're So Static* for example, but they fail to move me even after repeated listening.*Grimsby* is the best of the lot.The rest of the original album is much better.*Pinky* and *Dixie Lily* are enjoyable, fun songs that lift my spirits.*The Bitch Is Back* and *Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me* were both hits and each song is great.*The Bitch Is Back* is an energetic rocker with a great riff, catchy melody and chorus and features great playing from the band.*Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me* is a beautiful, soaring ballad.This albums shinning moment is *Ticking*, a song that rivals *Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding* as my all-time favorite Elton John song.Except for some minimal synthesizer backing, *Ticking* is simply Elton and his piano.When provided with a platform to display his talents, Elton does not disappoint.His piano playing is electrifying and breathtaking; his vocals intense and moving.The lyrics, about a young man who snaps, are disturbing and gripping.*Ticking* thrills me, moves me deeply and takes me to heights few songs can.The first time I heard it I thought it shear brilliance.My opinion has not changed over the years; *Ticking* remains one of my all-time favorite songs.The bonus tracks *Pinball Wizard* and *Sick City* are welcome additions.Elton's version of *Pinball Wizard* is fantastic.Despite the inconsistency,this is better than just about anything Elton put out after BLUE MOVES until he released SONGS FROM THE WEST COAST.

5-0 out of 5 stars Yet Another Classic
This album came at a time when Elton could seemingly do no wrong. He sold out shows across the world. His albums went to #1 as did his collaborations with John Lennon "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and The Who: "Pinball Wizard" which appears on this remastered edition in all its piano-pounding glory. However, the strain of success was beginning to take a toll on Elton. His recording sessions in Caribou Studios, Colorado were rushed. Elton refused to sing on a number of occasions. He even considered "Don't Let the Sung Go Down on Me", the big hit on this album, to be awful and suggested they give it to British pop star Lulu to sing...Credit Gus Dudgeon's producing for salvaging this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars David Bowie - 'Aladdin Sane' (Virgin) 4 1/2 stars
Review number 68.Originally released in 1973, as this was Bowie's stunning follow-up to the 'Ziggy Stardust' album. Many have stated that 'Aladdin Sane' is a stronger,harder and stranger work than 'Ziggy...'. Not sure if I totally agree with that,but I do like both lp's. Basically,just all around great '70's British hard rocking/glam rock,the WAY it should be. Best cuts here,without a doubt are "Drive-In Saturday",the title track "Aladdin Sane","The Prettiest Star",his nicely done cover of the Stone's "Let's Spend The Night Together" and the late night FM staple "Jean Genie" (never get burned out on this gem). After listening to this on CD for the first time,I can only say this piece might've very well been one of guitarist Mick Ronson's (R.I.P.) best work ever. Recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars One Of Bowie's Best
I have listened to this album and liked it since I was a teen. It is a world class effort with some wicked guitar and sexy nasty vocals. My favorite tracks are "Panic In Detroit" and "Cracked Actor". All of the songs are good and a must for anyone into Bowie.

4-0 out of 5 stars a very fun glam album
I feel like I am being unfair comparing this album to Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory (Bowie's previous masterpieces), but since Bowie, as an artist is so unique and truly had nobody remotely like him in the 70's (even amongst the glam-rockers) - I am obliged to do this..disservice.Aladdin Sane, while being a collection of amazing songs does not hold together as well as 'Ziggy' or 'Hunky'...that being said - what great songs! 'cracked actor' is a favorite of mine! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most influential albums of the 1970's
In my opinion, T.Rex is one of the most underated bands of all time. I also belive this is one of the greatest rock n' roll albums of all time. Next to Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, this is the most difinitive album of the Glam Rock era. Every song is great, and the extras make the album even better. Marc Bolan was a true musical genious, and one of the great forgotten artists. I would recomend this to any fan of old school rock.
5-0 out of 5 stars great choice
I bought this CD never hearing anything from T Rex exept for "Bang A Gong".Theirs no need to talk about certain songs because this CD is from top to bottom a awsome record."The Slider" gets all of the press and it to is exellant,but this one is more solid.
