iTunes Review

The Bowie of many voices was at play on this 1995 rediscovery of core musical values. He dusted off some of his best ideas—Berlin-era electronic music (with Brian Eno), scathing guitar, limber jazz piano—and created a song suite with a loose narrative that allowed him to switch suddenly from urbane crooner with a London twang (“The Motel,” “Outside”) to muttering alien lizard (“The Hearts Filthy Lesson”) at the drop of an arched eyebrow. “Hallo Spaceboy” is a particular peak, a theatrical, grinding push through industrial beats that announced the old, weird Bowie was back in business.

Customer Reviews


Outside is my favorite David Bowie album. I'm Deranged, No Control, The Motel, Segue- Ramona A. Stone- I am With Name, The Heart's Filthy many great songs on this album. I would have to list all the songs... Outside deserves more praise. It is so different. Five stars. Would give more stars if I could. I hope that David Bowie releases the outtakes. Thanks David Bowie!

It's shockingly coherent for something so seemingly messy and it really rewards repeated listening. It's a great record and, personally, long been one of my "desert island discs."

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.
