Background: After three albums of largely experimental music, David Bowie returned to more or less “normal” rock in 1980 with Scary Monsters.
Allmusic.com rates it as one of his best, saying:
Though it doesn’t have the vision of his other classic records, it wasn’t designed to break new ground — it was created as the culmination of Bowie’s experimental genre-shifting of the ’70s. As a result, Scary Monsters is Bowie’s last great album. While the music isn’t far removed from the post-punk of the early ’80s, it does sound fresh, hip, and contemporary, which is something Bowie lost over the course of the ’80s.
