Overview

David Bowie has switched labels so often his catalog is cluttered with hits compilations, all purporting to be definitive. Since he is one of the few major artists with no compunction against putting all his hits on one disc, they're all excellent, and 2002's Best of Bowie is no exception, no matter which country you live in (brief explanation: sensitive to the needs of fans in different markets, Bowie and EMI/Virgin tailored a different Best of Bowie for every country it was released in -- a collector's and cataloger's nightmare, but the basics apply for each variation). Yeah, there are great songs missing, and it loses a little focus toward the end, but all the big, big hits are here, in great sound and logical sequence. Bowie made more than his share of great albums, but if you just want the highlights, this is as good as Changesbowie in capturing them.

I love this CD, one of the best especially for the car! David Bowie was such a great talent. There are a couple really great songs missing, but otherwise this is perfect for any Bowie fan!

No question that the most popular items are here. I would have preferred to substitute the pop-ish Dancing in the Streets with Lady Grinning Soul from Aladdin Sane, as it's a much better composition - and a bit of a divergance for Bowie - plus, if you'd like to see an excellent rendition of This is Not America, get a hold of the Pat Methany DVD, We Live Here - Live in Japan - its beautiful.

My husband has all the Bowie CDs ever released, but I wanted one for my car that had the top hits. This CD filled the bill for me. We recently saw Bowie in concert in Los Angeles and he rocked the house. There are a few songs missing, but otherwise this CD is excellent!
