Prog Reviewer
5 stars Robert Fripp joins Bowie and Eno in Berlin to produce this manic art rock album which captures the New Wave spirit of the age perfectly. Having hung out with Iggy Pop for much of the previous year helping him get two solo albums together, Bowie had been inspired by Iggy's skill for ad-libbing lyrics at the mic and took a similarly improvisational approach to several of the songs, giving them a wild-eyed and energetic edge. Capturing a hectic, tense, chaotic atmosphere, the album also incorporates more gentle moments in its second half, including a nod or two to Kraftwerk that almost beats the electronic masters at their own game.
Warthur | 5/5 |
