5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Steaming Pile of Convoluted, Self-Indulgent, Experimental Industrial Art-Rock.....
......that is absolutely BRILLIANT. This IS why it was a good idea to have never stuck with the Ziggy Stardust formula for the rest of time, that so many stuck-in-the-past old school Bowie fans still crave and expect, from this shape-shifting musical chameleon, with every new album to this very day.

This is Bowie's most experimental, creative and controversial...

......that is absolutely BRILLIANT. This IS why it was a good idea to have never stuck with the Ziggy Stardust formula for the rest of time, that so many stuck-in-the-past old school Bowie fans still crave and expect, from this shape-shifting musical chameleon, with every new album to this very day.

This is Bowie's most experimental, creative and controversial album ever, and it is still dividing fans and maybe just the odd, critic 20 years on. The occasional, narration from the characters - Bowie adopting a distinctive and very convincing accent for each - is often jarring for fans', but I think its incredibly clever, showing yet another impressive side to his creative abilities, and should be taken with a pinch of salt, its meant to be a bit of fun for gawds sake!

Part 1 of 5 albums, sadly the other 4 were never to be. Over 70 hours of improvisations and demo sessions were apparently recorded for this album alone. The art-work was conceived and posed for by Bowie as some of the key characters of this story, his face digitally manipulated and morphed, each time, into someone new, even to the extreme of being covered in raw offal while lying on a gurney.

I very much doubt that we will see this level of creativity from Bowie again. I have heard the 70minuets of leaked outtakes, from these session, and they are even more left-field, but just as confusing to follow story-wise, actually more so. But all great stuff.

The vinyl version; Excerpts from Outside, was original released when vinyl albums were on the wane, so as it is not the full release, like the CD, I passed it over at the time. Regretted it ever since but, now don't have to worry!

Out of all bowies 90's albums, for me Outside, his most unique and original work and Earthling his most dynamically powerful and textured, are 2 albums that deserve a lot more respect and recognition.

Bravo!
