5.0 out of 5 stars Probably his finest album..., 29 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Low (Audio CD)
I don't think Bowie has released a better album than this dazzling collection of beautiful and highly innovative music , still sounding fresh and vital 25 years on. Many of the tracks are melodic , electronic instrumentals such as the excellent opening track "Speed of Life" which gives way to the brief and quirky "Breaking Glass". "Sound and Vision" is simply one of my favourite songs by any artist. Catchy well constructed pop songs like "Be my Wife" and "Always Crashing" follow, before the "melodic" aspect of "Low" concludes with the uplifting " A New Career in a New Town". The last four tracks are less accessible and immediate , but on repeated listening are very rewarding. The pioneering and brooding solemnity of "Warszawa" is a highlight and there is great depth in the arrangements on the other tracks with "Subterraneans" my favourite. When listening to "Low" , I simply wondered at the genius of Bowie, who can go from "Can You Hear Me" to "Warszawa" via "Wild is the Wind" in the space of barely two years. "Low" may have produced only one hit single for Bowie ("Sound and Vision")and may not have been a great commercial success but in terms of quality , creativity and originality it is probably his best album.
