Not really, people are just getting out years worth of reviews all at once.

Is there not already enough stuff on this site for any single thing to really choke it up anyway? Ermm 
Granted adding any big name artist will result in review overload, but it does die down eventually.

Now I could paraphrase Fripp, I may not have enough of Bowie but I've had enough of you. LOL

But I was not here and I did not say that. Tongue

It's dying down already - there's only one Bowie review on the main page at the time I write this.

A little positivity doesn't hurt either, especially on mondays.
Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

Sorry?
 
What choking?
 
How many reviews?
 
The most ratings he's had for any single album is 8.
 
The only way you'll coke on 8 reviews is if they are made in the same factory that also processes peanuts! Tongue
 
Just looked at the current Reviews RSS feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/progarchives/reviews) - last 50 reviews 3 for Bowie, 4 for Focus...

Humorously provocative intent, or not, I'm ever, ever so slightly "sick" of the "Choking up the site" topics (though with only two such recent choking topics, they are hardly choking up the site) -- haha.  The "tired of Tech-Extreme Metal choking up the site?" one was locked, I wonder how this will fare?  Will it choke quickly, or linger on?

I voted in the negative, as in "No, I am not getting sick of him."  As to the topic title question: I could not possibly be sick of him choking up the site because he is not choking up the site.  And there is currently only one review of a David Bowie album on the site's front page.

I like Bowie; so I'm happy to see people discussing his music. Thumbs%20Up  Just thinking about him makies me choke me up... Excuse me *wipes tear from eye* I'm feeling all beklempt.  Talk amongst yourselves.

Yikes. I was made on a monday, so it must be my factory defect that backfires at me here. Confused

At first I was tempted to answer 'yes', but I realise that this has more to do with me being generally underwhelmed by Bowies output, so the vote would actually be more of a comment on my (non)-appreciation of a certain artist than a direct response to the question.

I don't think there is an indigestion of Bowie mania considering the huge status of the man. I remember when LED ZEP, the WHO entered PA, it was more animated with a whole lot more reviews written than what i see presently for Bowie.
 
No we are not dying of a Bowie overdose yetBig%20smile

I find choking sexually stimulating, so this doesn't bother me at all.

That's the spirit! Tongue

The choking on Bowie pales to insignificance compared to the review flood that Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and other controversial additions caused.  But, fer cryin' out loud they are classified in one of the two categories that says they are on the fringes.  Since the line between what is prog and what isn't is a blurry one for me I don't give a damn next stop Vietnam for some chili-garlic sauce or something.
