Home of the Brave * O Superman

No comments for this unique, enigmatic artist? Shame, shame, shame! Big Science is an electronic music masterpiece, containing some of the best and eeriest vocoder work ever recorded. O Superman (A transgressive, musically progressive and radical track that still sounds as fresh and hypnotic today) is probably the track most other posters know Laurie Anderson for; she is certainly the epitome of an acquired taste, but give Big Science a few listens before judging.

Unpopular opinion here, but with all due respect to Lou Reed (whom I do like for some of his work, primarily his glam rock stuff like Rock N' Roll Animal; the more vocally oriented stuff like New York, not so much, as I find it musically dull), I much prefer his widow Laurie Anderson's output, primarily for the arresting soundscapes and much broader palette of influences displayed in her sound.
