Customer Review

on 30 October 2001
i told a friend of mine - a fellow musician and songwriter - that most bowie fans didn't like this album. i'd introduced him to bowie and this album some 6 months before. he replied; "but that's not real bowie fans". and i must agree. this is pure bowie. pure complex and daring lyrics as well as musically daring composition and innovative orchestrations.
this is an absolutely brilliant album, but also one of bowie's most challenging. none of the songs are as catchy as any on ziggy or as soulesque as stationtostation, and that may be hard for some fans to swallow. but when you let this liberating album grow on you, it proves to be a revelation more complex than most. and isn't that what bowie's all about, more than "let's dance"?
i still consider low to be the best berlin album, but this is surely one of the best albums of the 70s. incredibly demanding of it's listener, with no quick hook lines or flashy productions, this is post modernism at it's best.
