    Well, I got “Low” by David Bowie on a sort of whim, a random choice. Really, I knew nothing about the album, even though I knew of its existence for many years. Listening to it, I understood that this was very different to anything I had been used to hearing from him. His genius and creativity shines through the music at many points on the album and I understood very clearly without being verbally told, that the second portion of the album was soundtrack music. Bowie, as do many top-level artists, has an extremely high level of creativity and ability to communicate through his art and so, another amazing work by him.
    By the way, the director who rejected the soundtrack music was a profound idiot, if only for the moment of the rejection. Referring again to the “profound idiot” point I just made, the specific person or persons at RCA who were hesitant in releasing this album, fit into the “profound idiot” category as having inadequate understanding of artistry and the public’s ability to recognize this artistry. Possibly due to being too narrowly focused on the almighty dollar as opposed to the furthering of aesthetics in our society. Possibly because of their own inflated idea of personal importance and personal intelligence as to how they know so much about music and the public when really their knowledge is like Swiss cheese: full of holes. Another example similar to the record company exec that turned down “Bohemian Rhapsody” which then went on to become one of the greatest hits of all time.
    Anyway, another feather in his cap, another gem in his crown for David Bowie. Bravo!
