The Meandering Hexagon

Listener's Log: The Man Who Sold the World by David Bowie

Album: The Man Who Sold the World
Artist: David Bowie
Release Date: 4 November 1970
Date Listened: 10 April 2018
Remarks: I like Space Oddity as much as(or more than) the next guy, but it's nice that Bowie rocks out a bit more here. I still feel that my biggest problems with him are his voice and his music, which always seem to take a back seat to his image and his radicalism. The Man Who Sold the World is a work of art, but I'm not sure I love it as music.
Stand Out Tracks: The Width of a Circle, Running Gun Blues, Saviour Machine, She Shook Me Cold
