DAVID BOWIE - SCARY MONSTERS (180 GRAM VINYL)
FOURTEENTH STUDIO ALBUM FROM DAVID BOWIE. Scary Monsters was originally recorded in 1980 and is noted by many as the official last great album from the prolific, genre bending artist. Coming on the heels of his Berlin Trilogy, the album encapsulates Bowie's 70s experimentation while maintaining the perfect balance between creativity and pop ambitions. Glam rock themes are reworked with avant synth embellishments as Bowie exhumes his past. Frequent collaborator Robert Fripp adds obtuse guitar interjections that help to turn the album's pop ambitions on their head. It's the risk taking on this album that sets it apart from what would come after. There are unconventional time signatures, strangled vocals and dense arrangements; things that would be hard to find on later releases. Includes the songs: "Ashes to Ashes," "Fashion," and "Scary Monsters." Ten tracks in all. Released by Parlophone on 180 gram vinyl with printed inner sleeve.
