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

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