A lovely tribute to the late, great Bowie
When I heard that this project was being undertaken, I had mixed feelings... The original song being one of my all time favourites. I was concerned that when you bring four power-houses together like Martyn LeNoble, Christian Eigner, Mark Lenegan and the marvellous Dave Gahan, the end result would end up sounding more like a battle royale! When in fact that couldn't be further from the truth. The piece has a balance and richness to it. Mark Lenegan's distinctive raspy-bluesy voice lends this song a sort of sweet melancholy. While Dave Gahan's backing vocals (Dave GAHAN on backing vocal?!? Trust me it works though) brings it back just this side of being a dirge, and he seems to be saying "goodbye" as he sings "so long".
All in all, a brill reinterpretation of a great song!
