David Bowie Five Years 1969 1973
I thought it was rather sweet. A desire to rush release the record was blamed for mixes on the Rolling Stones Ralph Jones The Slumber Party Massacre Original Motion Picture Score " Watch That Man " and " Cracked Actor " that buried vocals and harmonica, respectively. Aladdin Sane featured a tougher rock sound than its predecessor Ziggy Stardust particularly on tracks like " Panic in Detroit " built around a Bo Diddley beat and Bowie's breakneck version of the Stones' " Let's Spend the Night Together ".
Both numbers were dominated by Mike Garson 's acclaimed piano work,  which also featured heavily in the faux James Bond flamenco ballad " Lady Grinning Soul ", inspired by singer Claudia Lennear. Two hit singles that David Bowie Five Years 1969 1973 be included on the album preceded David Bowie Five Years 1969 1973 release, " The Jean Genie " and " Drive-In Saturday ". Aladdin Sane was released in the UK on 13 April The album is estimated to have sold 4.
Critical David Bowie Five Years 1969 1973 was generally laudatory, if more enthusiastic in the US than in the UK. In the British music press, however, letters columns accused Bowie of 'selling out' and Let it Rock magazine found the album to be more style than substance, considering that he had "nothing to say and everything to say it with". That Bowie improved his music by imitating the Rolling Stones rather than by expressing himself is obviously a tribute to the Stones, but it also underlines how expedient Bowie's relationship to rock and roll has always been.
NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray called the album "oddly unsatisfying, considerably less than the sum of the parts",  while Bowie encyclopedist Nicholas Pegg describes it as "one of the most urgent, compelling and essential" of his releases. However "Panic in Detroit" also appeared regularly in Bowie's later years, a remake of which was cut in but not released until added as a bonus track to the Rykodisc CD of Scary Monsters And Super Creeps.
Two songs from the album, "Cracked Actor" and "Time" were included in the feature-length biographical documentary, and compilation Soundtrack,  entitled Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story. All tracks are written by David Bowieexcept where noted.

Twig The Wonder Kid Format: Audio CD. I suspect David Bowie fans will be elated and peeved at this release at one and the same time.
I've lived with "Five Years" for a full day now and I must say immediately that the AUDIO absolutely rocks for starters - in fact it may even be a little 'too' clean for certain palettes. That good news aside - there's precious little by way of 'unreleased' or outtakes when there was room on both of the new "Re:Call" CD compilations for plenty of it - only 4 of the album titles are Remasters "David Bowie", "The Man Who Sold The World", "Hunky Dory" and "Pinups" - most of the rest are from previous Anniversary Editions except the Remasters on The Dynamics The Burner Juckie Juckie new "Re:Call" CD compilations see list below - and there are piffling packaging anomalies that are bugging the crap out of me.
