I'd rather play here, with all the madmen
on 14 January 2017
I can confirm what other reviewers have said. This is a beautifully remastered version and sounds as good as the LP version I had all those years ago. The musicianship is terrific and the superb understated bass lines are wonderful. I've always thought Bowie never bettered this album and I now I know so. It's still so wonderfully daring: tales of sado-masochistic sex, a psycho killer on the run, his brother's insanity, etc. In fact today he'd probably never get it past some record co. exec saying "you can't do that - not safe enough for the kiddies". Brilliant.
