While the title track is epic and makes me respect Bowie more than I used to, this album is pretty average. Letter to Hermione, Janine, and they cygnat song are others that I liked. I did also like the "party choir" at the end.
The title track is still a favourite among those of us who are not true fans.
Still to early for Bowie to hit his stride. There's moments here, but his later work is better, if equally inconsistent.
"Most of the songs are completely forgettable." Hmm, well Cygnet Committee is a masterpiece, Unwashed, Wild Eyed Boy and God Knows I'm good are all pretty immense.
So I disagree!
Rather interesting collection of songs. Most of the album is what I would call "Good".
No doubt the title track is a classic, but to dismiss the rest of the LP would be to overlook some truly classic songs from Bowie, such as Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dased, Janine, Memory Of A Free Festival, & 2 other tracks that definitely stand comparison to Space Oddity, The Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud, & The Cygnet Committee, a great LP.
Several good tracks amongst some boring accoustic songs. Bowie's done much better since.
Charicature's point is not unvalid. This is a highly uneven affair with the opening track being an absolute stunner, while several tracks are sub-par. Still a pretty good debut though.
I actually found it to be an album with a sensational opening track that then gets mired in a boring monotony. Most of the songs are completely forgettable.
