SOE vs David Bowies Entire Discography
« on: January 31, 2021, 06:35:29 AM »
Inspired by a statement made last night by our friend Wons....where he stated that any of u2's 00's onwards albums were better than anything in the entitre catalogues of David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison.

So thought it made for a very interesting discussion point and some fun polls.

Lets start with SOE vs David Bowies entire discography....

IS SOE BETTER THAN EVERY ALBUM THAT DAVID BOWIE HAS EVER RELEASED?

Even this silly old U2 fan has to vote No on this one. And, I love SOE. But, come on...

And doing so is not some gross act of disrespect towards u2....or anti u2, or indicative of hating u2, or anything else like that.

When you think about the seminal, acclaimed and revered records Bowie released that have stood up for decade after decade in critics lists, the publics affections and have been cited as hugely influential by all sorts of artists for decades (maybe even u2) then looking objectively (as objectively as you can look at art) at that work versus a poorly received late career effort from even a band you like is not a crime!

Nope, not at all. U2 are, and always will be, my favorite band.

Iíll go even further...

I think itís perfectly ok for one individual, in his or her personal lilí pantheon, to consider that SOE is more important than anything Bowie has ever done.

Just as long as it is stated as such.

Iím not a Bowie fan. I might have 10 songs of his on my phone. Tops. And I listen to them casually.

SOE is not my favorite U2 record but I love Lights of Home, Love is all..., Book of your heart... itís had more impact on me personally, than any Bowie record.

That said, U2 would not exist without David Bowie. Not in this shape anyway. I want to at least acknowledge that. I know Bowieís had a major influence on most of the artists Iím following today.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Bowieís discography pisses all over U2ís. U2 have made perhaps 4 or 5 decent records. Bowie made many more than that. Equally, his impact on popular culture far outweighs U2ís. And heís better looking.

Bowie had some very great looking moments. The glam look was great. He looked even better after he lost the glam. His eyes were wonderful...and his smile was outrageously fine. But...

And, I will add...as far as "looks"...none of our guys are, uh, movie star handsome. But, they are fine, fine specimen. But, that's not what this thread is about...so, I'm outta here! ha

SOE? No.

AB, TJT...I would say so.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

And, there are pictures out there of Bono looking "drop dead gorgeous". And pics of Bowie looking not too pretty. So...
