`Reality' offers listeners a chance to hear Bowie's most compelling songwriting to date. The album is a custom blend of modern sound and Bowie's signature sound of the 60s and 70s. The music is focused and has a true purpose. The album is considered by many as his most creative work to date, featuring a variety of song moods. For example, "New Killer Star" features a layered-guitar sound with a synthesized background, "Never Get Old" is a pre-destined dance hit with its upbeat rhythm, and "Bring Me The Disco King" embraces the classic Bowie sound. Don't miss the chance to hear rock icon David Bowie as he continues his metamorphosis, delivering a new sound that appeals to die-hard 'Bowie' fans as well as a new audience of rock enthusiasts.
