Anniversary album: STATION TO STATION – his 10th LP

The title track introduced Bowie’s new persona, the Thin White Duke
that became the mouthpiece for the whole longplayer. The late genius
used the moniker thereafter on tour.

Pitchfork said: “Arriving in the wake of 1975’s glam-rock-shunning, Philly-soul-fetishizing Young Americans, Station to Station offered proof that Bowie’s fascination with American funk and disco was no one-off lark. But if Young Americans often felt like a studied genre exercise, Station to Station filtered that rhythmic influence through some of Bowie’s other obsessions at the time: the austere Krautrock of Neu! and Kraftwerk, the occult, Nazism, and, yes, a whole lotta blow.” Score: 9.5/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Up there with his best work during his golden years.
