1. Outside is still my favorite Bowie album, heretical as that may be.


I remember being very scared of this album when I was little. My brother loved it, but man, some of the stuff in the booklet really made an impression on my 6 year old self.


A concept album about the ritual murder and mutilation of a six-year-old would probably not be age appropriate for a six-year-old…

Who knows where the supposed trilogy might have gone but absent that, it’s definitely the weakest part of the album.

I was in high school at the time, and I remember thinking very clearly that “wow, I should come back to this album when I’m older. I’ll probably like this album better once I’m a little less of an idiot.”

One of the few times in life I’ve been right.
