David Bowie “Nothing Has Changed”

Nothing Has Changed arrives in a number of formats (with bespoke covers), but we’re heading straight for the 3 disc / 59 track version here. What makes this more than just another Bowie compendium is the reverse chronological order and the fact that this has clearly been curated (by the man himself?). Kicking-off with the distinctly un-radio friendly “Sue (in a season of crime)” we head through the more recent material, through decade after decade finally ending with some very sixties sounding early material. As well as radio edits, scattered throughout are the odd curiosity and rarity. With a career spanning as long as Bowie’s, it’s impossible to really nail a definitive best-of, but Nothing Has Changed makes for a thoroughly enthralling four hour journey. We do take issue with the lack of Berlin era cuts and the inexplicable inclusion of “Dancing in the Street” and instead of say, “John, I’m Only Dancing”. Bowie is the ultimate fusion of art and popular music. A one-off. 9/10
