David Bowie has always related to changes, innovations and experimenta, and almost no album is identhical to its predecessor. This artist has made many kind of music styles and also has dressed a lot of styles, imaginery, etc. It seem in his first younghood Bowie was attracted by mod music and aesthetic. "Mod movement" had its best moment during the sixties in UK and also USA. The most celebrity bands could be the first era of such: The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, Small Faces, Creation or The Animals, to mention a few. David Bowie recorded this debut album in that style, we mean, a mix of british pop and soul music, with elegant melodies and smart and clean sound.

"Low" is the eleventh studio album by British musician David Bowie, co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti. Widely regarded as one of Bowie's most influential releases, "Low" was the first of the "Berlin Trilogy", a series of collaborations with Brian Eno (though the album was mainly recorded in France and only mixed in West Berlin). The experimental, avant-garde style would be further explored on "Heroes" and Lodger. The album's working title was New Music Night and Day.

Earthling is the twenty-first studio album by David Bowie released in February 1997 via Virgin Records, later reissued on BMG Records. The album showcases an electronica-influenced sound partly inspired by the industrial and drum and bass culture of the 1990s. This was the first album Bowie self-produced since his 1974 album Diamond Dogs. Shortly after the release of this album, Bowie received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hours, of course, completes Bowie's late 90's trilogy in his usual fashion-- he's altered his sound to fit his perception of current musical trends. And as always, he's closer to getting it right than you might expect, but still way off the mark. Here, Bowie seems content to cut his losses with today's youth and reach for the older set. Hours opts for a spacy, but nonetheless adult- contemporary sound that comes across with all the vitality and energy of a rotting log.

For the better part of an hour, Bowie drifts through some the most sterile and unimaginative songs since Sting released Mercury Falling. On "Thursday's Child," Bowie acknowledges his issues with growing old, and possibly, his dwindling fanbase. "Throw me tomorrow," he sings. "Not that I've really got a chance." At least he can admit it. But just six songs later, Bowie regresses into "The Pretty Things are Going to Hell," an homage to his classic 1971 song "Oh! You Pretty Things" and Iggy and the Stooges' "Hard to Beat (Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell)" off Raw Power. As expected, it's not something you wanna find yourself listening to.

No, it's not a new low, but that doesn't mean it's not embarrassing. David Bowie is my dad's age, whether he likes it or not, and he needs to exercise some self-restraint-- you know, like taking a deep breath when he gets the urge to pen a sequel to one of his old hits. Or counting to ten when he feels the need to put a flanger effect on the guitar track. Or returning to an old drug habit when he becomes inspired to record another album...

"Blackstar" is the twenty-fifth and final studio album by the English musician David Bowie. It was released worldwide through Bowie's ISO Records label on 8 January 2016, Bowie's 69th birthday. Bowie died of liver cancer two days after its release; his illness had previously been kept from the public. Co-producer Tony Visconti described the album as Bowie's intended swan song and a "parting gift" for his fans before his death. Blackstar was met with critical acclaim and commercial success, reaching the number one spot in a number of countries in the wake of Bowie's death, and becoming Bowie's first and only album to reach number one on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US. The album remained at the number one position in the UK charts for three weeks.
