Diamond Dogs by David Bowie

A year or so on from his untimely (or timely depending on your take on things) death here we have a bunch of re-issues from the earlier part of the great man's career. Diamond Dogs was his eighth studio album which was inspired by Orwell's 1984. Here Bowie produced a glammy vision of a post apocalyptic world. As always Bowie moved on swiftly and this was to be his last glam tinged record.

This is Bowie's crowning achievement as a composer, producer, arranger & lyricist, not to mention those trademark croony-vocals which soon-after led to his disco-soul man release, 'Young Americans', only a year later. Just listen to his 3-part epic 'Sweet Thing' (complete w/Reprise), which anchors the first part of Bowie's Orwellian vision. His vocals are hauntingly superior to anything he's sung before or since. Also, the much overlooked 'We Are The Dead' & the less thematic 'Rock 'N Roll With Me', which may seem misplaced in this effort but keeps with the 'lizards lay crying in the heat' Gothic feel, not to mention the great song that it is.
