4 stars When Young Americans was a transitional album, Station to Station is a full-fledged and competent excercise in funk and blue-eyed soul. The change seems natural to Bowie and he fits well in the new realm, although it's definitely far from the best works create in funk/R&B not is it a revolutionary album, it is just well crafted and executed.

The first composition, the epic "Station to station" is a masterpiece of Bowie's excercise in art rock because of its structure and experimentation. Drums, Hammond, piano and bass are so pleasurable but even more is the change of the structure until it gets into more conventional melodic rock territory.

From now on, all remaining songs on the album are closely related to contemporary R&B. Not sure if Bowie's voice suits this type of music but instrumentally, all goes fine. "Word on a wing" has good female vocals. "TVC15" has a piano reminiscent of Elton John. "Stay" is my second favourite track because of its funky beat and quite a good melody.
