This is Bowie, always experimenting new things, ln this one he is trying to get the hang of New Wave,and sucessfully entered the 80s decade with a strange album. "Ashes to Ashes" is a gift obviously.

In piena New Wave Bowie ne offre un versione al solito originale e grandiosa, sorretto dalla chitarra di Robert Fripp: il lato A del disco è assolutamente perfetto, tra le sue cose migliori. Il lato B è invece si bello, ma normale, cosa che Bowie non era fino a quel momemto mai stato...

Overall Bowie's best album. There are no bad tracks, all of them are very interesting and unique. Teenage Wildlife is a standout track. The vocals are interesting, and Davids voice was the best it had ever been in 1980. Simply put, the best David Bowie.

A slightly underrated record. 'It's No game (no. 1)' sticks out to me because of how completely unhinged and deranged it is.

The last album in Bowie’s magical seventies streak, Scary Monsters doesn’t break any new ground for Bowie, but it’s a good summation of his late seventies ouevre, more commercial and accessible than anything he’d released since his glam days. With Eno not involved, there’s less sonic experimentation than before, and it’s much more song oriented.

Scary monsters, is David Bowie's first album of the eighties, and is yet another of those classic Bowie records. It's probably his most accessible for a while, but that doesn't take anything away from the quality of this LP. The amount of originality and invention is stunning, with, ashes to ashes, the most famous track, a brilliant sequel of sorts to, space oddity. The, it's no game, cuts that bookend the album are wonderful, the first one is the best in my opinion, fashion, is a perfect way to kick off the new decade, and the title track is another Bowie classic. How he always manages to have his fingers on the pulse of what's going on always amazes me. An excellent addition to an incredible body of work.
