I'm just listening to a CD by Bjork titled The Music from Drawing Restrain 9. I've always liked Bjork and find her experimental approach to music surreal, but highly interesting... this album is, in the words Paul Carf, a bag o' *****.

Often musicians stick with a style that you can trust so you buy something and it's generally in a similar vein. But some like to move around in diverse styles. Which albums have you bought that were either remarkably better or worse than what you were expecting.

I'll list a few
Metal Machine Music by Lou Reed - off the scales for worse
Mutations by Beck - so much better
Low by David Bowie - different and very likeable (actually Bowie has arguably been one of the most diverse artists of our music history.)

Anything by Macca after Wings was cr@p and Elton John hasn't done anything decent since the 80's.

Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell was good, but nothing after.

Agree with you about Bowie.

I often found the Beatle's new, later albums difficult first time round which may sound daft today. However, a lot of what they created had never been heard before and took some listening to. Jack White keeps me on my toes these days. I haven't listened to Music from Drawing Restraint 9 but being based on Japanese music it's know wonder it's "awkward".

David Gilmour`s first solo album, I still think its his best.

And the stranglers, never quite the same after Hugh Cornwell left the band.

I agree very good album, but it's kind of same as all the rest of his albums...a kind of style...also not far removed from Pink Floyd's "formula" so you're safe. Now if you're a modern Floyd fan and dipped into the back catalogue you may be a bit disgruntled with something like Atom Heart Mother.

Yes, I was never keen on that album myself.

I took the wife to a Blondie concert, a double wamy I thought at the time as Hugh Cornwell was the supporting act.

Blondie did all her old hits and Hugh Cornwall did acoustic versions of a lot of the old strangler tunes, for me the magic had gone.

Its not surprising Bowie does not like playing his old stuff.

Robert Plants another that produced a lot of solo stuff.

His first Solo, had a lot of the zep magic and was probably his best

Fever Ray by Fever Ray (Debut Album) this was their first album but a real hit for me, Check out the track Triangle walks
Black Sands by Bonobo another hit
Kid A by Radiohead was worse than expected

Yep and when I bought it I thought I`d been ripped off, side one has the same sticker as side two, guess it makes it rarer Smile

The left hand stack is all the older stuff of which possibly only Meddle would appeal to the person who likes more recent Pink Floyd. They may wonder what had happened when playing Ummagumma. I've now stuck Piper at the Gates of Dawn on ...and enjoying a Barratt moment

Unaccustomed as I am to name-dropping, I went to school with a guy who was later part of Hipgnosis and shot some of the photos on the animals cover. He died nearly two years ago. My abiding memory was seeing him (at school) clutching a copy of Atom Heart Mother when it was first released.

Would that be Peter Christopherson?
