    Station to Station

    This review is brief, but just provides a different side of the argument. It's hard to make an argument when albums only get rated when people really like them. Station to Station has a unique sound as a whole. Each song, though each with their own individual touches, relies on a similar vocal pattern and song structures that the other songs on the album use. "TVC 15" is the most estranged song (lyrically) on the album, while songs like "Stay" and "Wild is the Wind" (jab at more sophisticated lyrics). "Golden Years" and "Station to Station" both contain somewhat of a funky vibe; more like casual listening music rather than something moving. The high point of this album by far, in this reviewers opinion, is "Wild In The Wind". The sole ballad on this album, it's a cover of the Johnny Mathis song by the same title, and subsequently has some of the most powerful lyrics on the album. David Bowie has a knack for bringing his own vocal and musical influence on his the songs he covers (i.e., "God Only Knows" of Bowie's album Tonight), and the results are beautiful. Overall, I don't feel that this album represents Bowie at his best. However if you are a Bowie fan (like I am) you may want to get it, if not only for the powerful "Wild Is The Wind", then to subject to yourself to Bowie in all forms.
