Bowie using electronics well before it became popular. Kraftwerk was an influence. Half of the tracks 1,7,8,9,10,11 are mostly instrumental. The rest of the songs are a bit fragmented perhaps not fully formed but Sound and Vision should be considered as a classic track. Always crashing in the same car stands out as well. This album will be remembered for its daring and boldness.

As much as I love Bowie's catalog, and as much a I try to like this album and revisit it every few months, I just have a hard time getting through the back half of the album. The experimentation in the front half is really cool though,

Sin duda un gran album, bastante creativo e innovador.
No es mi favorito de Bowie pero incluye Warszawa, una de mis canciones favoritas de Bowie.

From antaiospiano 09/04/2018 09:35
This album was hasted because he didn’t want people to think he bited Iggy’s style. There are some great songs here, but a lot of fillers. The ambient tracks on side B are completely boring, and can’t be compared with “Heroes” ‘s side B. The only reason why people cream all over this album is because it was released earlier, which makes “Heroes” look like a part 2. Nothing in the world is less true: “Heroes” was the project he was going for; Low was just to show people he was the first. He should’ve just not given a fuck about what people would think and made Low and “Heroes” into one great album. Now they’re both a bit half-assed, though this one more than “Heroes”.

From being a Glam Rockstar literally three years before this guy turned into a dark, eletronic beast, an transformation only a par with Beatles's. Bowie was ahead of his time, while his other contemporary rock musicians were fighting punk rock (punk rock itself inspired by Ziggy Stardust), he was dictanting the new wave and post-punk long before It even happen.

One of my favorite Bowie albums. Side 2 is my personal favorite with the Eno-inspired material.

David decides to detox in Berlin with his music chums and produces this dreary album full of minimalist arty electronica. Essential!

For some reason, I was never really super into Low. I much prefer heroes and lodger.
