EDITORS’ NOTES

Embracing a coy blend of folk, pop, and cabaret, this album puts Bowie's talents as a singer/songwriter front and center. Each track draws us in with a catchy melody, like the jaunty piano on the music-hall inspired "Kooks" and the stripped-down guitar on the rocker "Song for Bob Dylan." We love picking out the examples of Bowie's trademark wit that weave throughout the songs, like references to Nietzsche and Carl Jung. The standout dramatic ballads "Changes" and "Life on Mars" still sound remarkably powerful.
