Bowie’s albums seem to possess that strange quality which allow them to “grow” on the listener over a period of time. Couple with a visit to a live concert of his the effect can be devastating!
….Now that Bowie has settled in with his band, the albums are becoming less studio-oriented and establish him as a rock n roll singer pure and straight. Side Two is a chronicle of his life as a “Star” ending with contemplation on “Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide“. The strongest numbers on the album are “Starman“, “Hang On To Yourself” and his favourite encore raver “Suffragette City“.
…..Definitely an album for every serious rock fan. A taste of things to come.
