    I came here to post this. You probably didn't play the 8-track though.

    Next two from DB. Although having decisively brought the curtain down on glam-rock with Diamond Dogs it was still a bold move by Bowie to throw a real curveball next time around with his take on clean-cut blue-eyed soul. Young Americans must have confused the hell out of a lot of his fans back then but even after nearly four and a half decades the album has aged pretty well (and I certainly think it has aged better - not to say being far more likeable - than the over-produced Let's Dance, which could be considered to be its 1980s equivalent). At the time it could have been conceived as a total miss-step accompanied by a remorseless fusillade of 'sell-out' accusations but Bowie carried it off - he sounded convincingly at home with his new approach.

    A sizeable portion of the Station to Station material also had its foundations in Stateside funk but beneath the surface the carefree dancefloor-friendly vibe which ran through Young Americans was largely superseded by a strain of Euro-oriented art-rock which would characterise much of his subsequent output for the next few years. Bowie by this time may have been hoovering a significant acreage of South America up his schnoz but it certainly wasn't stymying his creativity - Station to Station represents a spike on the chart even by his dazzling 1970s standards.
