Struck n. 4

Best comeback album ever?
Probably one of the best in the hyperflamboyant career of our duke and, consequently, one of the best. Period.
After the first elegiac video and this second one, so rich of flavours of the typical bowiesque ambient, including the ever-fascinating Tilda Swinton, finally the album itself.
An album growing in time, listening after listening, like almost all David’s.
An album with a magnificent pearl, the songs that once Bowie managed to write frequently, soaked in the atmosphere that recalls the old aphorism by Oscar Wilde : “A cigarette is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?”.
Oscar, a writer I’m sure David likes, like a brother.
This song is called “Dancing out in space”, it has a bipartite schizoid form (soooo David) and it’s, quite simply, great.
It reminds me of the past, when jewels like this were no rarity at all.
A mind drug indeed.
Should be illegal in a world like the one we’re living in.
