From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars In my opinion, this is the most progressive Bowie album he has ever released, for one reason; THE WIDTH OF A CIRCLE, the Toud De Force that opens this classic Bowie album, 8 minutes of quite arty progressive music, oh but thats not the only song that rules on this album as some standout tracks include the obvous title track THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD, ALL THE MADMEN, AFTER ALL and the final track THE SUPERMEN which arint just great songs but feature great musicmanship and have terrific storylines to them. Thre isnt really a concept to this album but a lot of songs are inspired by the works of great literary figures such as Friedrich Nietzsche and H. P. Lovecraft. As with every Bowie album (and indeed most albums released at the time) the production is great with a real raw sound on some tracks and a real sheen on others;

The Width of a Circle - 10/10 All the Madmen - 7/10 Black Country Rock - 7/10 After All - 9/10 Running Gun Blues - 7/10 Saviour Machine - 7/10 She Shook Me Cold - 7/10 The Man Who Sold the World - 10/10 The Supermen - 9/10

My Conclusion? another great Bowie album and a real great addition to any collection.
