5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie's Best, 3 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Station To Station (Audio CD)
Being David Bowie can't be the easiest job in the world, especially if you can't even remember recording your best record. In my opinion, this is exactly what Station to Station represents: Bowie's finest hour.
Despite consisting of just 6 tracks, each is a standout. Station to Station is a real monster of a song; great intro, and after 6 minutes the song kicks off into a strangely uplifting train ride with some real grinding guitar flying through the right speaker channel. If Station to Station is a heavy night out, then Golden Years is it's hangover cure. Next we have 'Word on a Wing', containing great musicianship and piano work. The line "Lord, my breath lies like a word on a wing", is particularly memorable.'TVC15' is an oddball song which comes off really well and is probably my favourite song, with its endless repetition of "Oh my TVC15, oh oh, TVC15". 'Stay' is a real funk rocker, with the falsetto chorus being the highlight ("Stay, that's what I meant to say"). The final track, 'Wild is the Wind', on the first listen, sounds like the worst song in the world. However, given repeated listening, like the rest of the album, the track flourishes, it grows on you; and as the crooning vocal creeps under your skin, it becomes like a new family member- irreplacable.
This album is not an instant classic, it demands attention and the patient listener is highly rewarded. This cd epitomises the phrase 'quality not quantity'. In all, if I only ever recommend one item, it would be this, my favourite album ever.
