He is a fornicate genius. What album mate?Started listening to Bowie
He is a genius because he basically mastered every style of music he attempted and constantly reinvented himself. With the psychedelic rock (Space Oddity), to glam (Ziggy), moving on to soul (Young Americans) and then onto ambient and krautrock in Germany and then dance in the 80's. The musical chameleon. He even did a heavy metal album which was great (The Man Who Sold The World).I'm not familiar with Bowie's works. Just some of his 80's hits or so. Watched some profound documentaries about Bowie some fortnight ago. Wow! Claiming he's a genius sounds like an understatement to me now. The guy is colossal! Must find the time to check out his works CHRONOLOGICALLY. What a piece of music history it is.
The first one wasn't good, he was doing shit like The Laughing Gnome around then and only just making a name for himself. The second (known as Space Oddity) had some good tracks on it, the title track which is a classic and An Occasional Dream but it's not a great album in terms of consistency.Thanks for the advice but why skip his first three albums?
