5.0 out of 5 stars One of Bowie's Best!, 21 Nov 2011
Station To Station served as my introduction to the back-catalogue of David Bowie, and it couldn't have been a better entrance. The album only has six songs, but like other reviewers have stated; there is no filler material. From the eponymous rock'n'roll ambient track to the sublime cover of Wild Is The Wind, Bowie does not put a foot wrong which is an admirable fact considering that the man himself could not remember recording the album due to living a rather debased and rock'n'roll lifestyle. No matter the circumstances, this album is absolutely fantastic and serves as a testament to the experimental and musical genius of David Bowie that was well and truly alive during the 70s.

The Pet Shop Boys' Discography is now a little dated as its 1991 publication has been succeeded by other more up-to-date compilations with hits up to a few years ago. However, this compilation never fails to put one in a good mood as it's joyous amalgamation of songs such as West End Girls, Always On My Mind and perhaps one of the greatest pop songs of all time, Being Boring, still dazzles and delights despite years of constant play. The compilation serves as a great entrance into the voluminous back-catalogue of the iconoclastic band that is the Pet Shop Boys. In conclusion, this Discography edition may be outdated by almost two decades, but it's selection of great pop music is no more… Read more
