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 Bowie's Darkest Hour 29 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whenever a new Bowie album is released it seems people are more than happy to brand it as his best album since Scary Monsters!, however with 'Outside', I feel it is fully deserving of such praise.
'Outside' did originally recieve good reviews from the American critics, but failed to cause much more than a ripple of excitement over here in 'Old Blighty'. Now it seems much has changed and at last the British press seem to be giving it the praise it deserves.
From the opening track the album sets a incredible mood with it's brilliant production, dark textures and haunting musical landscapes and this incredible mood continues throughout. What really makes this album so enjoyable is that it contains some of Bowie's best music, the title track, 'I have not been to Oxford Town','Thru these architects eyes' and 'Hallo Spaceboy' are the more immediate melodic songs and easily excite. 'The Motel' is one of the best tracks and with Mike Garson's piano it remains the albums most haunting moment. All the musicians are more than fantastic but it is Mike Garson who dominates this album with his highly distinctive piano playing, it really helps drive the music along at a frantic pace, especially on tracks like 'I'm Deranged' which still after 9 years remains one of my most favourite Bowie tracks of all time. It all ends on a lighter moment, 'Strangers when we Meet' which is similar in style and construction as earlier Bowie hits like 'Heroes' and 'Teenage Wildlife'. As I say this is probably the darkest album Bowie will ever make and it is a must to any Bowie fan or any curious rock fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars perhaps the final experiment... 8 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful album. A 'grower'. The more you listen to it...etc...At the time it seemed that Bowie was about to launch upon a new found era of experimentation grounded in the eras dug with Eno in the late 70's. Taking on board street dance grooves and pop/industrial sensibilities of NIN and the Prodigy this album marked a road forward whilst tipping a hat to past successes/influences.In some ways very much of its time (if one thinks of Tricky and the afore-mentioned)yet elusive in the way that only Bowie can be. Perhaps the closest thing to a 'Diamond Dogs' for the Millenium. The album is a half breed of experimentation and great alt. pop/rock tracks...having heard some of the outakes from the album one wonders how the original 'Outside' may have been if Bowie had been allowed to persue the chant / narration ideas as in evidence on the track 'I am with name'. The second disc here is comprised of things which are, on the whole, mostly expendable. The 'Rubber' mix of 'HFL' is great, as is the 'Basquiat' mix of 'Small Plot', Bowie's vocal isolated, a wonderful mix. 'Nothing to be desired' is one of the rare polished mixes of 'the stuff that got away' from the 'Outside' outakes (When will they release this stuff!!?!!)As for the Pet shop boys remixes: great material sold down the river...shoulda gone to Reznor/Tricky/Goldie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The genius returns! 25 Aug 2009
By Adriano
Format:Audio CD
Like many Bowie followers, I was first converted on that memorable evening in June 1972, watching Top Of The Pops and the Starman had arrived.
Little was ever the same for this young teenager after this experience. I know it's become a bit of a cliche as so many have claimed the same thing since - but this is understandable - it was so amazing - no one ever performed on TV like that before.
The 'campness' of that performance made sure I got plenty of stick at school. But by the end of term, I was surrounded by a classroom full of Ziggy converts.

Disappointed with the plastic soul period, I remained a disciple and was rewarded with Station and the famous Trio now dubbed 'Berlin - period'. Scary Monsters came and I believed nothing could get better from the mainman.

But like so many others, the 1980s (a time when I could've seen him live) left me in dispair. For me it was like the end of the world.

Then Tin Machine came like a rocket, albeit flawed, and Mr Bowie had my full attention once more.

A few reviewers have called Outside a 'grower' and I have to agree. The first few plays were hard work, yet we just knew there was something under those layers of production, Eno's effects and the sampling.
To me it was like playing Dark Side Of The Moon and The Exorcist simultaneously. At level 10.
Pushing the boundaries of any and every genre, Outside is a monster album of darkness.
With tiny pinholes of light provided by Mike Garson's tinkling piano arrangements and the odd lyrical quip from the man.
Reeves Gabrels is perfectly placed to either blast his guitar to optimum effect or, just shimmer behind the scenes creating an eeriness throughout. A Small Plot Of Land for example. It is horror like Silence of the Lambs... Scary? Yes.
