Product Description

Product Description

38 of Bowie's career-spanning best! Space Oddity; Changes; Suffragette City; Ziggy Stardust; All The Young Dudes; Rebel, Rebel; Fame; Heroes; Fashion; Under Pressure (with Queen); Dancing In The Streets (with Mick Jagger); Let's Dance , and more!

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.

Format: Audio CD
For over three decades now, David Bowie has been releasing music. And his music is nothing short of excellent. A number of popular artists have named him as one of their major influences, and with good reason. Classic/Alternative rock artists don't get a whole lot better than this. In late 2002, a retrospective of Bowie's career was released, in both one disc and two disc form. Read on for more information.
First of all, here's the tracklist for the one disc version:
1. Space Oddity
2. Changes
3. Suffragette City
4. Ziggy Stardust
5. The Jean Genie
6. Rebel, Rebel
7. Young Americans
8. Fame
9. Golden Years
10. Heroes
11. Ashes To Ashes
12. Fashion
13. Under Pressure
14. Let's Dance
15. China Girl
16. Modern Love
17. Blue Jean
18. Dancing In The Street
19. This Is Not America
20. I'm Afraid of Americans
As you can see, you'll get all of Bowie's biggest hits on here. (Space Oddity, Changes, Under Pressure, Let's Dance, China Girl, Fame, and the fairly recent hit I'm Afraid Of Americans.) Perhaps one of the finest things about these songs is the musicians who co-wrote or made guest appearances on them. Under Pressure was a collaboration with Queen, Let's Dance and China Girl feature the late Stevie Ray Vaughan on guitar, Fame was co-written by the late John Lennon, and the cover of Dancing In The Street is a duet with Rolling Stones vocalist Mick Jagger. Twenty tracks of pure excellence. Unfortunately, there are several key tracks missing from this compilation. As another review specified, Cat People isn't here. The Man Who Sold The World (later covered by Nirvana) and All The Young Dudes (later covered by Bruce Dickinson) are both missing in action.

Whether it be the guitar riff from "Rebel Rebel" or the bass line of "Under Pressure", this compilation of David Bowie's biggest hits is absolutely perfect. I own quite a few greatest hits compilations, and this is, bar none, the best one. While many artists end up sounding long-winded on their compilations (adding songs that aren't actually hits) Bowie gets it right. I have the single-disc version of this CD and it is just perfect.
Every single song is a classic. Starting everything off is the moody "Space Oddity", a perfect lead in. The tracks just keep coming and getting better and better. "Changes". "The Jean Genie". "Ziggy Stardust". "Heroes". "Fashion". "China Girl". I love every song on this compilation. It is frequently in my CD player (on as LOUD as it will go). Buy this CD. It is phenominal.
An interesting side note: My dad was listening to "Modern Love" when he was driving to my parents' wedding. "Get me to the church on time!".

Its hard to know how to describe Bowie's Music, as it hops across so many genres, that It almost defies categorisation, whether it's the theatrical glam Rock of "Ziggy Stardust", the Rousing Pop chorus of "Starman" or the Synth-Rock of "Fame".....or the 'Queen' collaboration of "Under Pressure", And if the utterly astonishing "The Man Who Sold the World" doesn't move you in some way, then the sheer diversity & range of his music on offer here (Covering key points in the evolution of his music) just simply cannot be ignored, as there's an undeniable piece of musical history here all ignited by the creative touch of Bowie, and David Bowie is as important to the evolution of music as "Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, Prince....etc, Unless your not a fan of his music (bear in mind there's something here for virtually everyone...) Moving through genres seamlessly (Experimental Rock, Glam Rock, Hard Rock, Prog-Rock/Art Rock, fusion, Pop/Rock), that everyone will undoubtedly have many favourites to choose from.....then there's no reason not to pick up one of the most definitive compilations ever made. (**Note** make sure you pick up the 2 disk version of this album that is Available)

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.
There are just a tun of great choices hear.
