        Official Release

        Written as a TV miniseries soundtrack, THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA goes well beyond the simple function of theme music. It stands proudly on its own, filled with the intensity of David Bowie's greatest work, fueled by Bowie's ever-present devotion to exploring technology. It is a testament to his gift as a songwriter and musical visionary that he is able to walk so deftly between experimentation and accessiblility.

        From the dreamy, sprawling epic that is the album's title track, BUDDHA moves swiftly from one futuristic idea to another--"Sex And The Church" features a chilling spoken vocal backed by a sensuous, throbbing rhythm track. The offkey swirls of "South Horizon" melt into a sparse, beautiful cloud of mesmerizing sound. The energetic, sequenced pulse of "Dead Against It" steers the proceedings in a more upbeat direction, and the guest Lenny Kravitz's wild guitar lends his trademark swagger as the album closes with a rocked-up take on the title track.
