When you listen to 'Reality' in a concentrated way, you start to hear some of its truly inspired touches. It's full of good, enjoyable tracks, but within those tracks can be found a playful experimenting that makes you go back and play them again - just to make sure you haven't missed anything the first time. And it's this quality that makes 'Reality' such a marvellous album - it's got longevity, and won't travel to the bottom of people's CD racks for quite some time.
A complete contrast to 'Heathen', occupying a different imaginative space entirely, this is a textured and tantilizing, immensely varied album. Pretty much what you expect from David Bowie.
And it makes you want to dance.

This is the third edition of Reality in two months. The news are that in this one you have a dvd with a life performance of the Reality songs (not the classic ones he sang in that concert) and the great cover of Kinks classic Waterloo Sunset (the same bonus track you can find in the japanesse edition).
For me, the best songs are New Killer Star (buy the dvd single), Reality, Never Get Old, Pablo Picasso, Fall Dog Bombs The Moon and Bring Me The Disco King (maybe the Underworld Soundtrack version is even better).
P.S.: The song in the french advert was Never Get Old, and not Lookin For Water. You can watch the advert in [...]

I am quite surprised that no one has reviewed this version of the Reality album yet. Plenty of reviews for the normal CD version and the bonus disc version, but none whatsoever for this excellent duel disc edition. There are some on the American Amazon.com however. - All very positive. I wrote a review for the CD version of Reality back near when it was first released but having had a 5.1 setup for a while now I've started getting into music DVDs and have been searching for Bowie albums mastered in 5.1. Ended up reading on Wikipedia of all places that there was a duel disc version of Reality and here we are. I listened to the album for many years as a standard CD so you really hear the difference and hear new sounds when you listen to the 5.1. I recall a similar experience when picking up Queen Greatest hits 1 and 2 on DVD, had become so used to listening to the songs through a computer or a standard stereo as soon as you listen to a track in the remastered 5.1 it makes such a difference. Having said this, big fans of Queen may know that their Greatest Hits DVDs were released with a least compressed DTS 96/24 audio which sounded flawless throughout.

Reality Duel Disc however does come with a heavily compressed Dolby Digital soundtrack, though; nonetheless the sound is excellent and well mixed throughout. Sure it would have benefitted from a DTS track and there is room for it on the disc, but in every track the Dolby does well and I feel it breathes more easily than the standard CD. It isn't overly aggressive or vise versa, neither is it your typical 'bounce sound all over the place' 5.1 effort. Done by Bowie's producer Visconti who obviously knows what he's doing with the music.

Format: Audio CD
Every album Bowie has ever made has had high points. Even critically slated albums such as Tonight had its good moments (Blue Jean, for example), as did Tin Machine - their version of Maggie's Farm was, to my mind, one of his best ever tracks. Recent albums (and by recent, I mean the last 10 years' worth) have been, although better than most other bands around, still patchy in places. From Black Tie White Noise through to Heathen, they have all been generally good, but with a few poor songs to balance out the brilliant.
This is not the case with Reality, however. From the moment that 'New Killer Star' beings with it's classic Bowie sound reminiscent in places of Rebel Rebel and Jean Genie, through the spanish guitar laden insanity that is Pablo Picasso and onwards, there is not a bad moment to be heard. Throughout the 90s, sometimes it seemed that Bowie was trying just too hard to be trendy, hip and different. But the good work on Heathen has been continued, and to my mind this IS his best album in certainly 20 years, perhaps longer. It's certainly the one that has impressed me most after just two or three listens - probably more so than anything since Heroes.
This album deserves to be heard, and it deserves to be loved. If there's any justice, it will outsell all the TV manufactured rubbish in the charts, and give Bowie the incentive to carry on making music this good for another 35 years.

Each and every new Bowie album since 1995's 1: Outside has been touted as Bowie's best since Scary Monsters. This once again is true of Bowie's new release Reality, but it should really be taken on its own merits. Reality is a very strong piece of work, building on the success of 2002's highly successful Heathen. Some elements are similar to Heathen, the result of Bowies excellent live band, but this album is on the whole much more forceful and direct. This is Bowie at his confident best, he knows he's got it, all of it, and so the sound is relaxed and confident. Tunes such as Reality and Never Get Old are noticeably written to be played live and rock in the manner of the glam glitterburst, Hallo Spaceboy. At other moments, the album is reminicent of Young Americans, with "She'll Drive the Big Car" and the slow ballad "Days" is simply beautiful. The Album is opened strongly by New Killer Star, and the closing track, "Bring me the Disco King" a number which bowie has allegedly been toying with for years is packed with wistful emotion. The Special Edition also comes with An excellent near instrumental, "Queen of all the Tarts" and a recent version of Rebel Rebel. An excellent album, showing Bowie at his strongest and most creative for years, certainly the strongest for a decade, and in its own right, a great piece of work and one of Bowie's best so far.
