14 Songs, 59 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Bowie in 2003 was more modest but still sharp. There's no concept or grand design here, just a bunch of good songs, including Jonathan Richman's snotty name-dropper “Pablo Picasso” and George Harrison’s spiritual “Try Some, Buy Some.” Bowie's at his best on spiky, menacing rockers like "New Killer Star," which has enough hooks for three songs. This mostly upbeat album ends with a left turn, "Bring Me the Disco King," where brushed drums and film-noir piano strand you in a dark part of town.
