Today’s Zen Pencils inspired me to listen to Low, the first album in David Bowie’s “Berlin Trilogy.” I’ve heard plenty of Bowie in my day, and I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve listened to the entirety of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, yet somehow I’ve never heard a single track from Low.
It blew me away. Unsurprisingly, it was unlike anything I’ve heard before; of his or of anyone else. I was all in on the first side (tracks 1-7), but I will say he lost me a bit on side two when it got more experimental. Still, I’m exceedingly happy to have found this album. It was the first time I’ve heard it; it will not be the last.
My plan now is to continue the trilogy tomorrow with “Heroes” and then listen to Lodger Friday.
