57 Songs, 3 Hours 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

If anyone still needs convincing about the depth of David Bowie's talent, this will make them a believer. At nearly four hours, The Platinum Collection covers Bowie's career from 1969's shimmering "Space Oddity" to 1987's clangorous "Day-In Day-Out." Along with all the expected hits, deep tracks like the glam-rocking b-side "Velvet Goldmine" and key soundtrack contributions including the ominous "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" and the chilling Pat Metheny collaboration "This is Not America" show the broadest scope of Bowie's career.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

That One Guy! ,

Good, but could be better.

Bowie and his music is awesome for sure! I think this triple compilation could have been better with some songs left off and other songs included. But hey, when a guy like Bowie has so much great music, everyone is going to have their own personal favorites they'd like to see on compilation albums. But I think every Bowie fan would agree that this triple compilation now needs to become a quadruple compilation with a 90s/2000s album! Actually, start it in 1989 with the Tin Machine album, since that album was left off of the 80s compilation :( Then move on to 1991's Tin Machine II, and so on up to 2016's Blackstar.
