iTunes Review

Moving away from the psychedelic folk of 1969's Space Oddity, David Bowie fronted a hard-rocking power trio featuring guitarist Mick Ronson and drummer Woody Woodmansey, which would soon morph into The Spiders from Mars. The heavier, more aggressive sound suits the darker tone of songs like "All the Madmen," which features a chilling spoken-word section, and the foreboding majesty of the title track. The apocalyptic mood is lightened by the sludgy grind of "She Shook Me Cold" and the lighthearted boogie "Black Country Rock."

Get the vinyl instead -- this version sounds like nothing

My favorite. But get the vinyl instead! (Or something besides this version). The sound on this remixed version totally wrecks the album. This album was simple, classic, analog recording, great players making something work with their instruments and voice without adding a bunch of production or special effects. The remix here is like doing Mozart when your stage is set up to play Beethoven-- Mozart really sounds way better with a few people than it does with a full symphony orchestra. There's a YouTube version out there now which will give you a much better idea what this music is all about.

Amazing album horrible mastering

Skip the 2015 remaster and stick with the 1999 instead. Way too muddy for modern electronics.
As for the actual album it's fantastic. Gave it two stars so review would stick out and help people avoid this remaster.

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.
