Ziggy Stardust “almost sounds out of place” on this album, he felt. But why? Listen to the words, flow with the feels, and you’ll only get as surprised as you ought to be.
Bowie’s web-master then celebrated the cross-over of these gents-des-l’arts in offering a pic of Bowie in a sailor suit, trying to match, for beauty, that of Duff on the cover of Fragile Spaceman. So Blam concluded shis review with a nod, doff, and kind of curtsy to both these artists at once … ideating that
“Jeff’s been wearing sailor clobber for some time now … just sayin’ … great minds, etc.”
