Customer Review

on 23 November 2002
What began life as a soundtrack to musical called 1984 ended up being this nightmare where the world is destroyed and mutants run across the landscape, only in the world of David Bowie could you end up with this!

With Bowie's backing band the Spiders from Mars having been dispensed with after the 1973 tour, the artist sets about playing and recording most of the songs here on his own playing the guitar part on "Rebel Rebel" himself.

The lyrics to this album are quite strange in construction I don't know if he used the "William S.Burroughs" method of cutting up the words and re-arranging them afterwards to make something new or not but it sure sounds like to me, not that this is a bad thing you understand it sometimes gives you surreal results.

The re-mastering of this futuristic nightmare brings even more of "Bowies" vision to life to amuse and entertain the listener,with the clearer sound of this version allowing you to hear a lot more of what's going on.

This album was so far a head of the pack they still haven't caught up, with 1984 giving us a sneak preview of what was to come next in the "Bowie" world of tunes. An essential purchase for the causal or serious follower of the mans music...
