Yes.



Star is crap. Everything else is pretty good/great/amazing.

Ugh...I just played Star again trying to understand the appeal, but it's not good at all. The backing OOOH WAH WAHs are painful, and the track just feels rushed in general. It Ain't Easy gets a bad rap, but at least it kicks ass. Hang On To Yourself is a bit throwaway, but it's one of the most fun tracks Bowie ever recorded. Honestly, other than Star, this album is rock-solid.

You know what, I have a bit of feeling we are destined to disagree on this topic.

In the meantime, does anyone want to give me possible explanations for the following tracks: Soul Love, Moonage Daydream, Lady Stardust, Hang on to Yourself, Suffragette City and RnR Suicide in terms of the "story"?? I'm writing a bit of piece and need a few more ideas for those songs.

OK, this I can help you with, my friend.

The basic story of Ziggy is that an alien with RAWK in his blood comes to earth as it's decaying and near its end. Now, in his course towards fame he does some mingling with the population, obviously. Soul Love is Ziggy trying to wrap his mind around the concept of love, particularly between young people. It's not important to the story, really, but it gives you can idea of how his mind functions.

Moonage Daydream is, in my opinion, a hit song by the Spiders From Mars, with Ziggy on vocals. Again, not important to the story in particular, but it gives you an idea of what they sound like as a band and why their sound would be so shocking to what appears to be late 50's America; the musical era that is often parodied throughout the album.

Lady Stardust is a shot of the fans drooling over Ziggy. It frames everything, and gives you an idea of how he became so popular. Who "Lady Stardust" is, I have no idea. Perhaps Ziggy himself.

Hang On To Yourself is a parody of 50's rock n' roll and, like Moonage Daydream, an original composition by the Spiders From Mars, and not so much a key plot point.

Suffragette City is about excess. It shows the band falling apart from the inside out, exhausted and oversexed. It segues well into Rock N' Roll Suicide, as it gives context to that broken track. It's unclear what "suicide" is referring to, I don't believe it's literal, but there's a sense of giving up in that track. He had grown so tired of the rock lifestyle and being on earth that he just couldn't take it anymore.
