UK, 1973, glam rock / art rock / pop rock

David BowieAladdin Sane

This album opens with a standard rocker but then descends into a mad tune of avant, chaotic, minor keys and angular sounds, undermining everything you felt in the first track. The piano has a total breakdown, but then the album proceeds onto smoothness, further confusing the listener with its schizophrenia. An easy rock groove permeates the whole document, though, with no skimping on the use of the saxophone.
