The Next Day (2013)

TRACKS 1.  The Next Day: A sharp snare hit and it’s underway. The greatest comeback in rock history. “Listen!” Muscular instrumentation, alive and vital, an off-beat pulse is reminiscent of Scary Monsters’ timeless art rock as if the 80s, 90s and … Continue reading

Reality (2003)

TRACKS 1.

The Buddha of Suburbia (1993)

TRACKS 1. Buddha of Suburbia: Bowie’s homecoming. This self-referential title track (featuring the guitar break from ‘Space Oddity’, and revisiting the “Zane, Zane, Zane, Ouvre le chien” refrain from ‘All the Madmen’) and theme song to the TV series, is … Continue reading
