I hadn't listened to that album for a very long time mostly obsessed with Alladin Sane, Diamond Dogs & Low. Recently downloaded a bunch from that album and of course dig it-anyone notice the guitar riff on Hang on to Yourself sound like I Wanna Be Sedated by los ramones?
I grew up in the seventies, not sixties, and Bowie is my Beatles. As far as innovative, great pop tunes he's the man. Even most of the punks dug him.
