Dark, and cocaine-driven songs singed by Thin White Duke, a tormented soul that drives this album through an aspect of nightmare. This is one of bowie's most autobiographic work, and he didn't even remember doing It.

Typically high-level mid-70s Bowie. I don't love it all, but most of it is just to good to dismiss.

I'm a big Bowie fan and love nearly all his stuff (mid to late 80's was too poppy commercial). But this is my second favourite Bowie album - just behind Ziggy. 4 years separate those two albums but it might as well be 40 years in terms of any similarity of style, tone, vocals or just about anything.
2 exceptional albums by the same artist but anyone listening to them back to back would not believe it is the same guy, and only 4 little years apart. Who else does that?
The title track is immense and great courage to allow the instrumental build-up and holding it for so long. The mid section sets up the Thin White Duke and the final section he flicks another switch and pops it out.
TV15 and Golden Years are solid tracks and amongst the better known tracks. Stay does begin to show that deep luxurious voice building on the Plastic Soul of Young Americans, but for me the best two tracks are Wild is the Wind and the almost hymn-like Word on a Wing. Another comment below states Wild as the best cover version ever, I can't help but agree - his voice is superb. I'll take these two tracks at my funeral please.
When I was buying up his back catalogue (having got into him at Lets Dance in 83), this was the last one I bought. It was only 6 tracks and always seemed to be a bit more expensive than the other albums (which were also superb anyway) - but what a delight when I finally got it over 30 years ago. Still listen to it regularly and it doesn't feel dated or any less brilliant.

I have to admit, every track on here is great. Station to Station is the most experimental track, very interesting and catchy at the same time. Golden Years is classic. Word on a Wing is beautiful, the best track on the A side.

TVC15 and Stay are the most forgettable tracks, but are still really great for what they are and, of course, Wild is the Wind is one of the best songs Bowie ever did and is, I would say, the best cover in music history.

Personally my favorite Bowie record. I own it on vinyl. His most cohesive record. The songs evolve and grow in amazing ways. The title track and TVC15 are favorites.

I'm not the biggest David Bowie fan, but this is probably my favorite album of his. I'm always struck at how different people can have such opposite opinions on songs. Stay is my favorite Bowie song of all (with only Heroes close behind), but you read others who say it's lackluster.
