Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain Bowie not Bargain Bin... 21 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
Bowie's mid-90s revival might not have been appreciated by everyone but he really kicked into touch the commercial doldrums of his mid-80s period. This box comprises the challenging industrial-influenced 'Outside', the frenetic drum & bass driven pop of 'Earthling' (don't believe the critics, no one at the time released a record that sounded like this), the low-key, stripped back material on 'Hours' and the critcally acclaimed 'Heathen' and 'Reality', which saw him re-united with former producer, Tony Visconti (whose credits included 'Diamond Dogs', 'Scary Monsters' and 'Low' from Bowie's most glorious period). But the real bargain is the extras. For a box that rings in at under £30.00 there is some lovely extra material. The 'Basquiat' version of 'A Small Plot of Land' and the 'American Psycho' mix of 'Something in the Air' even knock the originals into a cocked hat, while additional material such as 'Pallas Athena', 'Nothing To Be Desired', 'We Shall Go To Town', 'Shadow Man' and 'When the Boys Go Marching In' indicated that Bowie could still leave great tracks off his albums altogether! Diamond Dave is ripe for a comeback. I strongly recommend this to all but the most hardcore fans who'll have the material anyway. But at £29.99 you can't go wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Second chance.... 1 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD
....to own this box set that before its rerelease was commanding over £100 on ebay. So its well worth snapping up now. The box itself is made of sturdy cardboard and is pleasant enough. However the individual albums in replica card sleeves are fiddly and may be subject to future damage. Care is needed when removing the discs contained in paper sleeves. But the discs, which may be the 2004 remasters, are sounding great and represent a stunning return to form for Diamond Dave. A form which really started with Black Tie White Noise, has continued to the present day with The Next Day. The 5 albums in this set are great individual albums each worthy of appraisal in its own right. Heathen is simply brilliant. The second discs offer plenty of B-Sides/remixes etc. Including Toy session songs well worth the entrance fee. All in all, worth buying. Peace out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Golden eggs in one basket 27 Aug 2009
By Adriano
Format:Audio CD
A nicely packaged and compact box set of Bowie's last 5 albums.
Each 2-disc album is in its own slim 'vinyl replica' sleeve.
And this time thoughtfully added is a paper inner sleeve for each disc to keep surface scratches to a minimum.
Something the dual disc releases of Outside/Earthling/Hours was sadly missing.

There is a booklet with each - very small and offering no or very little additional information to the original releases.
The bonus discs as you'd expect are crammed with outtakes, b-sides and remixes. Some may be considered surplus to requirement if you own the singles already.

This may be the latest jewel in my vast Bowie collection. So I can only knit-pick, as it is not perfect, as Bowie compilations rarely are.

Many will know that there is a lot more unreleased 'Outside' material that could have been included in preference to the numerous remixes of the same tracks (Little Wonder, Seven, and The Hearts Filthy Lesson for example).

The extras, which will be of most interest, are the extended versions of 'Hallo Spaceboy' (Pet Shop Boys extended remixes) and 'Rebel Never Gets Old' - these have been difficult to get hold of on CD in the past.

The Heathen [disc two] has many of the known recorded tracks from the aborted 'Toy' album making it the only bonus disc the listener may want to play from start to end. However, we know there were more - Silly Boy Blue in its re-recorded glory has been leaked by bootleggers and would have been more than welcome on here.

Another omission I noticed was the 'Outside' period version of 'The Man Who Sold The World'. This would have been an obvious choice to include here in my reckoning.
But we Bowie collectors should be accustomed to such annoyances by now. Hopefully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Box-Set of delights! 9 Jun 2013
By Alser
Format:Audio CD
This box-set is truly exceptional value for money. There's even room to slip in you deluxe version of The Next Day if you so wish! Beautifully packaged. Even if you have all the albums and all the rare tracks it is very handy to have them all in the one place. The second disc from Heathen is particularly brilliant and would have made a great album in its own right. (apparently many of these track would have been on the unreleased Toy album) I would definitely recommend picking up this box-set while you still can, at such a great price as well!

These are Bowie's 5 most recent albums, each with a separate disc with loads of bonus tracks. At £25, this was a real bargain. After losing the plot in the 80s these records represent a real return to form for one of the few English artists prepared to take risks. All of the albums have a completely different sound and many of the songs rank as some of the best of his career. Tony Visconti is back producing on the two most recent albums. If you already have Low, Man Who Sold The World and Hunky Dory, these should be next on your list.
