Scary Monsters = Yeah seems like another Berlin Trilogy type album, and Bowie seems to go more in a new wave direction. I really like the title track and Ashes To Ashes. Can't remember much else but only heard once or twice.
Elton = Probably heard that album but dont remember it much either. I enjoy "I Think I'm Gonna Kill Myself" though! It is silly and tasteless but its a catchy tune and that first verse is hilarious. "Getting bored, being part of mankind.. this race is a waste of time! - what a scandal if i died". Never expected to hear something so nilistic from him before. It kind of gets ruined after awhile lyrically and just sounds like its from the perspective of some whiny teen instead of someone actually fed up and on deaths door though but it is interesting and I think it is a good enough hook and some nice jaunty honky tonk piano.
