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

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