EDITORS’ NOTES

Bowie in 2003 was more modest but still sharp. There's no concept or grand design here, just a bunch of good songs, including Jonathan Richman's snotty name-dropper “Pablo Picasso” and George Harrison’s spiritual “Try Some, Buy Some.” Bowie's at his best on spiky, menacing rockers like "New Killer Star," which has enough hooks for three songs. This mostly upbeat album ends with a left turn, "Bring Me the Disco King," where brushed drums and film-noir piano strand you in a dark part of town.

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.
