New Angels of Promise


So apparently David Bowie wrote this for the soundtrack of a video game, which makes David Bowie considerably more hip to the times than I am. Which is as it should be, because he’s David Bowie, of course, trailblazing his way into the new millennium. I remember being ecstatic in 1999 when ‘Hours…‘ came out, which for me meant stealing merchandise at the record shop. (Yeah, I stole a few posters and buttons, that’s not why they went out of business!) To my impressionable mind it was as good as anything ever, and as an adult somewhat capable of objectivity, I still think it is. Not that Bowie has never lost momentum, but he’s maintained consistency since the droopy period in the 80’s, and everything he does is part of the grand scheme of things.
