4 stars Probably the last David Bowie album that I really enjoy, SCARY MONSTER (and SUPER CREEPS) is very much a product of it's time (1980). It is not as good as ZIGGY STARDUST, DIAMOND DOGS, or HEROES, but it is still an ewssential album in David Bowie's history. Guests include Robert Fripp, Pete Townsend, and you can't complain about that! Fripp plays on 6 of the 10 songs, even. I can't get "Ashes to Ashes" out of my head for hours after I play this album. Killer hook.(Major Tom's sequel story). No real weak numbers are on this album. Jsut not quite up to early Bowie classics.
