UK, 1980, art rock
David Bowie – Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps): I’m a huge Bowie fan, but I prefer his stuff from 1969 through 1977 best. After that, I kind of lose interest in the sound, probably because I have some kind of mental block against 80s music (even though the 80s were my formative years). I don’t know. Anyway, I’m glad I gave this album a chance. “Ashes to Ashes” is such a raw song, so deliciously referential.
