Product Description

Amazon.ca

David Bowie's pop genius lies in his ability to create music that's notable for both its pretension and its accessibility. As ones examines these 38 songs from "Space Oddity" to "Slow Burn" (from 2002's relative return-to-form Heathen), what's surprising is how coherent the songs are when heard one after another over the course of these two discs. For a musician often portrayed as an artistic shape-shifter, Bowie's vision is remarkably consistent; he simply stamps his identity on interesting trends he comes across. Like the Rolling Stones' similarly enjoyable Forty Licks, things do get a bit sticky toward the end of disc two, though there's mercifully nothing from the misbegotten Tin Machine.

EMI has done it! Perhaps one of the first "Best Of" compilations to live up to its title. Is every hit here? No, of course not-that would require four CDs and this is only a 2-disc release. I mean we're talking about Bowie here, the guy's been making music for over three decades and has recorded more than 20 studio albums. But, this is also more than just a "pop essentials" or "very best of" album. Some of the more minor, yet significant hits are also here. More impressive, EMI hand-tailored about a dozen versions of this release for each market it was released in. For instance, the US double disc version (on which this review is written) differs from the UK version by ten songs. EMI has done its homework and crafted a unique listening experience for each country according to record sales and chart success on a country by country basis. When have you ever seen such dedication from a record label? Again, this is not a definitive collection and everyone will find a few favorites missing, but this is as close as it gets without pushing the length into "box collection" proportions. Anyone who likes rock (classic, glam, pop, new wave, disco, etc.) should own this album, because Bowie pioneered ALL of these genres and more. He is a largely under-appreciated musical genius, especially in America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth all your time & money! Aug. 8 2008
By Martine
Format:Audio CD
I adore Bowie, but never owned any of his albums. This compilation is great & satisfied my need to have his greatest hits. He has too many albums to purchased them all. So stick to this one as this is a 2 CD kit! All worth your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good CD! Sept. 6 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This just might the best compilation CD of Bowie. The only down side is that there are quiet a few "radio" versions, which means the songs have been edited. Some edits are very minor while others are quite severe such as "Heros" and "Let's dance".

This is a great album. David Bowie himself might be a little odd. However, I've all ways liked his taste of music.
From Space Oddity to Ziggy Stardust. You'll get allot of good use from this set.
I have several of his CD's. However, this is one of my favorites. It has allot of his good songs on it.
