1976 Classic Fts : "Wild is The Wind","TVC15","Golden Years" - things go better with coke!
After the success of the dance hits "Fame" and "Young Americans" (both off 1975's Young Americans), Bowie seemed to step back, ponder the future of rock, and then turn up the guitars and the art-rock sensibilities and make a completely engaging and evocative album. From the epic title track (introducing the Thin White Duke character and building into an incendiary rocker) to the irresistible "Golden Years" (another dance hit) and on to the physically wrenching and funk-drenched "Stay," the soul of David Bowie is pretty much meshed into every track. The playful "TVC15" takes the listener on a bumpy ride into unholy tech-love, and the gorgeous "Wild is the Wind" and "Word on a Wing" have Bowie stepping out of his rocker persona and into sensual crooner mode. Strong from beginning to end. --Lorry Fleming

1) Station to Station - Easily 10/10, the title track is honestly my favorite, it's quirky, its long (10 min), and it feels like 2 or 3 different songs smashed into one. I love the almost 3 minute intro to the chorus, and bridge, this song is such a trip.
2) Golden Years - 10/10 Didn't like it too much at first but this disco jam grew onto me and it's easily accessible.
3) Word on a Wing - 10/10; ballad-like song that I can describe as truly BEAUTIFUL.
4) TVC15 - 10000/10 FUNKY. It is one of my favorite songs from the album (#2) and of Bowie's catalog.
5) Stay - 10/10 - The beginning guitar riffs that rips and punctures throughout the song is what truly makes me love this song.
6) Wild is the Wind 10/10 - It slows down here a bit like in Word on a Wing. The final song of the album and Bowie's vocals are ... wow. Phenomenal song. Perfect ending.
NO FILTERS, NO FILLERS, NO GIMMICKS, IT IS THE RETURN OF THE THIN WHITE DUKE.
RIP Starman <3
1. Station to Station- my favorite 10 minute + song ever. It starts very soft and melodic and jumps to a high feeling fueled punch with one of the most memorable lyrics " it's not the side effect of the cocaine, I'm thinking that it must be love"
2. Golden Years- Great track! One catchy tune that is somewhat underrated in bowies catalog.
3. Word on a Wing- A beautiful song. His most personal song. And to be honest it's a song that most people can relate to. Bowie's cry for help. Undeniable lyricism.
Truly a genius ahead of his time.
4. TVC15- From the moment the piano starts to the very end. TVC15 is one a groovy track. So hologramic oh my TVC15.
5. Stay- Stay starts off great and keeps getting better. Bowie's backing band is exceptional. Carlos alomar is one underrated guitar player.
6. Wild is the Wind- Bowie covers Nina Simone and he did a great job. The music video for this song is what really got me into this song.
With just 6 songs Bowie proved his brilliance! Influencing artists for generations to come. Fact!!
I've never had any problem with the sound of the original CD release, so I probably would not have opted for this reissue if it weren't for the Nassau Coliseum concert. The album sounds great, and the concert is absolutely tremendous. He plays songs spanning almost his entire career thus far, but (as Bowie so often did) with his new 1976 style. Suffragette City, for instance, doesn't just rock here - it also glides along on an almost-disco beat.
Sometimes, reissues come with a little padding to trick the consumer into shelling out for something they already have. This concert isn't just padding - it's the real reason to buy this set. The improved mix of the proper album is just the icing on the cake.
