    Obviously his best album since...maybe Scary Monsters (no...don't say Let's Dance ¬¬).

    Rocker numbers, pop numbers, and some kind of Flamenco stuff ('Pablo Picasso' and yes, I'm Spanish) mixed with Pop-rock. Great album with two instant classic (New Killer Star and Reality).

    Unfortunately, Bowie was so great with The Spiders and in his Berlin Era that this have to be a 7 album and
    not a 9 or 10 one, but obviously is better than any average Pop artist from the 2010s.

    Those who don't like it: sorry, you don't like the REAL David Bowie.

  1. Reality is easily one of his most emotionally transparent albums.
  2. It's the sound of a man who's worked out how to be good again, who finally understands his own strengths and limitations.
  3. It's a little artier than Heathen, but similar in its feel and just as satisfying.
