A review of the pop star in his heyday, featuring live and studio performances, rare interviews and commentary from a panel of music experts. By the mid 1970s Bowie was the biggest pop star in the UK, but his personal life was in turmoil. In a bid to escape the chaos of his drug problems and to flee from the media spotlight, the singer eventually found his way to Berlin, where he started to work on what would become some of the most memorable and critically lauded recordings of his career. Bowie stopped moving from persona to persona as he had previously done, settling instead on being simply himself, and began to blend the music he was hearing in his adopted homeland (Kraftwerk and the like) with the avant-garde methodologies used by his friend and colleague Brian Eno.
Top Customer Reviews
It is a low budget production, but well executed. It starts off examining Station to Station briefly to explain the background of the trilogy, and then heads into Low. About half of the documentary is given to discussing this album, with in-dept analysis and production insights. Then "Heroes" is presented rather briefly, while Lodger is given a considerable portion of the documentary (with people being quite apologetic). Finally Bowie's return to Eno on Outside is discussed, before ending with a short bit on Philip Glass' symphonic cover versions of Low and "Heroes".
All in all this was insightful, interesting and well worth the money.
It would have benefited from a bonus DVD of full performances tracks from those albums.

I cannot find anything good to say about this DVD. I would have thought real Bowie fans would know about most of the content already, so there is nothing new here. Read morePublished on 23 Nov. 2006 by Sebastian Longshanks
