Bowie offers most original matierial since the 70's
For fans of Bowie Reality is a must have. This album has an edge that none of his recent studio albums have had. The songs are memorable yet surprise you at how they are arranged. Sounding more experimental than his last Heathen, Reality reminds me of the 70's catalog of Bowie material. The guitars are fuller his voice is more powerful and the drums are solid. Don't hesitate just buy this album and put it on repeat.
Bowie's Best In Years
The Thin White Duke has constructed a masterpiece with "Reality." Not since "Outside" has a Bowie album been this good. Bowie always surrounds himself with fabulous musicians and that's certainly the case here. Just one example is long-time Bowie collaborator Mike Garson whose brilliant piano work sets the mood for the hauntingly beautiful "The Loneliest Guy" and the rainy day jazz atmosphere of "Bring Me the Disco King." Most of the songs are uptempo with outstanding contributions from the musicians as well as killer lyrics from the master songwriter himself, plus you can actually read the lyrics in the liner notes this time, unlike previous Bowie releases! A must-buy for not just Bowie fans, but anybody who's tired of the Copy and Paste studio-manufactured music that permeates Rock music today. This is REAL talent. Believe me, the CD is worth it just for Bowie's cover of Jonathan Richman's "Pablo Picasso"
