We’re jumping on the bandwagon for this month’s pick. ย Surely you’ve read somewhere about the new David Bowie record. ย It’s all over the place. ย The majority of the reviews say it’s excellent, and we agree with them. ย It reminded us of Bowie’s insanely badass Berlin Trilogy. ย Even the artwork with the blocked out “Heroes” cover is a clever move. ย And then there are the songs…all 14 of them rock (unless you buy the deluxe edition, then you get more songs that rock). ย It’s pure Bowie! ย In all the good ways!

We have the CD versions right now. ย The vinyl drops on March 26th. ย We’re gonna buy ’em both just because. ย Read some blurbs below the cover…
