EDITORS’ NOTES

The final album of Bowie's famed Berlin trilogy is the most conventional of the three, but it's still a wild ride full of unexpected twists and turns. Despite the infectious choruses and relatively straightforward—however artfully twisted—rock feel of the strutting "DJ" and chaotic "Look Back in Anger," Lodger overflows with engaging exotica from the reggae-goes-Middle Eastern "Yassassin" to the cubist clash of urgent art rock and South African flavors on "African Night Flight." Think of it as classic rock from an alternate universe.

Great Album

gigatron,

This is one of my favorite Bowie albums and one of my all time favorite albums!

Stands the test of time very well!

deremo_h,

Although sometimes regarded as the lesser effort of Bowie’s “Berlin Trilogy,” over the years I have revisited Lodger often, and I have found it to be more listenable and more fulfilling as a complete work than either Low or Heroes - not to deny the sonic innovation and obvious high points of those albums, but somehow Lodger is more inviting and user-friendly, as opposed to something to put on a pedestal and admire.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
