This review is from: Low (Audio CD)
This album demonstrates Bowie's best abilities as a songwriter, a musician and a trendsetter. Bowie (along with Eno) seemingly predict where the music scene is heading years before it actually does, with a concoction of sythn and guitar laced tracks ranging from brillient songs to beautiful instramentals. Bowie experiments, but it doesn't get out of hand like other albums have, and it leads to what is his most rewarding album, at least of the late 70's. Musically this album dwarfs anything Bowie has done since and, although he had bigger comercial successes,in my opinion is better than the highly critically aclaimed "Heroes" which "Low" preceded. The stand out track is "Sound And Vision", but every track is excellent, especially the daunting, lethargic instramentals.
This is a definate for Bowie fans, and for anyone truley into music. Get "Low" in your collection now!
