Single Review... David Bowie - Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)

David Bowie is a household name, and rightly so. Bowie is one of the most respected musicians in the world and has multiple classic albums to his name. Songs such as 'Heroes', 'Let's Dance' and 'Space Oddity' have gone down in history as some of the best songs ever released. There is absolutely no doubt that Bowie is a mastermind. However, the peak of Bowie's musical career has been and gone as shown with his new song 'Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)'.

Lasting for an impressive seven minutes (probably three minutes too long), Bowie's 'Sue' is a chaotic and manic fuse of music that simply does not fit together. To say the very least, the song is experimental. The heavy influence in jazz mixed with Bowie's roots make for a stressful seven minutes. There is a reason why Bowie and Frank Sinatra would never work together, and that reason has been released. And obviously because Sinatra has passed away.

The song comes across as being fuelled by love and intense passion which is represented through the very off-beat drumming. Bowie's vocals are strained and most definitely not sounding as good as they once did. It's a disappointing clash of instruments that is unsettling and not as one would expect from David Bowie. Unfortunately, not even his fame or long list of great past hits can excuse this song.

Out of 10: 4/10
