Young Americans was an album which divided opinion. As a new sound for David Bowie, it wasn’t something he had mastered, and for some fans, the new sound alienated them. In his 10th album, Bowie continued to evolve his sound, added Krautrock to his repertoire, and created a new character.
1970-1974 could be considered the glam rock era of David Bowie’s career, with outlandish characters, and frivolous rock pieces. 1975 would be the start of something different.
After yesterday’s none post, I really should make it up with my discussion on this particular album.
After six albums of largely original music, David Bowie released his 7th album, which was a collection of covers by some artists who Bowie liked, but not well known in America. So, what would I consider my favourite cover?
Ziggy Stardust was a financial and critical beast. Everyone loved it, and still love it. His follow up had a lot of obstacles to overcome after raising the bar with Ziggy Stardust.
