Just a tip

If you replace the inexplicably dead-sounding cover of "Across the Universe" with the unutterably beautiful and heartbreaking "Who Can I Be Now," Young Americans becomes the flawless five-star album it deserves to be.

Many thanks to the excellent Pushing Ahead of the Dame, without whom it never would have occurred to me that I could do this, even though I've known the song for years. Oh, and if you're into Bowie and didn't know about Pushing Ahead of the Dame, I apologize for stealing your life.

As I offer, again, my apologies to you.

Stealing is right, dammit, that's a fantastic site. Most music writing is meh, but not that stuff.
