    "This after Neuköln is almost as stupid as Murder by Numbers after Tea in the Sahara. " - this idiot is still wrong after 4 years, Heroes is a pop album with experimental tendencies and closing it on a faux ambient electronic track would be absolute stupidity. david bowie is well aware it's best to end things the way they started, with a catchy, dancy, fun as fuck pop song. suck my nuts.

    And thus, Lodger (and the 80's music, by the way) was born.

    low and heroes should've been a double album (the greatest double album of all time), and the line "i was running at the speed of life" proves it. what a great bookend that would be.
