iTunes Review

David Bowie’s 1967 debut album foreshadowed in many ways how he’d later dramatically shape pop culture. Musically, it’s wildly ambitious—from the horn-led theatrical pop of “Rubber Band” to the string-swirling, Syd Barrett-influenced “I Love You Till Tuesday” to the androgyny-themed popper “She’s Got Medals.” While there’s a novel jauntiness to “The Laughing Gnome,” other tracks are detailed observations of daily life, like “Join the Gang,” which mocks herd mentalities with a sitar and bouncing piano. This album showcases Bowie in all his youth, and that’s no slight.

A classic

A must for all classic Bowie fans.

Vignettes: The Spring Source

It's not an album I could nowadays put on and listen to all the way through. But it does have little gems that heard in isolation are remarkable. It's remarkable that DB poured these songs out and none of them apart from Space Oddity (which is very different from the other tracks and doesn't really fit in here) was a hit. These tales of 60s hedonism, transvestism, paedophilia, moral torpor, love and daydreams passed by with not an ounce of interest. But the nascent talent can be seen in there; and talent will eventually out. Worth examining; of historic interest.

Bowie at his purest

This is such a pure, simple album. I could wax lyrical for hours but I won't. Comparing it to later Bowie albums won't help you either. When you listen to it pretend your listening to someone totally new for the first time. I promise you, after four or five times you'll know the lyrics inside out.
RIP you beautiful Man.

The cliché about David Bowie is that he was a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated a remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock...
