Review by Kotro
PROG REVIEWER
3 stars This compilation perfectly showcases why David Bowie is often referred to as "The Chameleon or Rock Music". Throughout the length of the two discs making it, we are treated to a chronologically organized presentation of Bowies work, from his glam-rock heydays to his present AOR output, travelling through the danceable pop of the 80's and the techno experimentalism of the 90's.

The booklet is nothing to write home about, limiting itself to listing the details of the songs, without going into specifics. In this type of career-spanning compilations it's always nice to have the paper providing some bonuses, such as some personal words or a critical overview, or even some nice photos - none are presented here.

All in all, a decent compilation, perhaps relying too much on the musical content (which, with 39 tracks, is quite generous), and a decent introduction to anyone wanting to explore Bowie but not sure where to start. It is, of course, pretty useless once you really start to dig in David Bowie's discography.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This 2016 has started with terrible news regarding music, the one that has affected me the most is David Bowie's death, because I consider him a genius, an artist like no one that changed a lot during his long career, and with all changes he demonstrated he could surprise us with positive and original works. He was always morphing into a new character, new music, new styles and new tendencies. It is difficult to say that a good artist has not been influenced directly or indirectly by David Bowie.

Of course, with his decease, people has been talking more about him and fortunately new generations or even old ones who did not dig his music before are starting to get into David's works, which is the only positive thing these sad news left. This is why I want to review this 2-CD compilation album, because I am a Bowie follower and I would like to suggest his music to you, my prog lovers' friends who visit this site.

Here you will find a chronological selection of representative tunes that offer a magnificent and unique mixture of styles: rock and roll, glam rock, space rock, pop, progressive rock and even electronic. This man managed to create new ways, to erase boundaries so in the end we only focus in one thing: music. Music without labels, David Bowie's music, that's it.

Of course, I've always said that it is better to start digging a band or artist with studio albums, that's undeniable a better way to start, however, with the huge fuzz about him nowadays, I think his legacy could enlighten young musicians and listeners who are willing to share something interesting to the world, so I think this compilation album might be a good place to start for them, and enjoy iconic songs such as "Space Oddity", "Life on Mars?", "Heroes", "Fame", "Fashion", "I'm Afraid of Americans", "Loving the Alien", "The Man Who Sold The World" and much more.

If you find this, don't hesitate and get it, you will not regret. Enjoy it!
