David Bowie

Reality

by

Published September 18, 2003.David BowieReality(ISO)Reality finds Bowie in the comfort zone of recalling his past. He works his way through his old catalogue with vigour, taking chunks from here and there. Heathen was Bowie’s best work in 20 years, while Hours was little gems buried in mediocrity. Reality suffers from that same ailment: great thoughts and unfulfilled prophecies. Still some interesting ideas and bizarre covers (Jonathan Rich-man’s “Pablo Picasso,” George Harrison’s “Try Some Buy Some”) make it a worthwhile holdover until another Heathen appears. —Trevor MacLaren
