The big carrot that Parlophone has been dangling in front of fans to get them to plunk down the heavy coin needed to purchase this box is the inclusion of what is billed as a never-before-released album, The Gouster. The album contains several tracks that were eventually left off Young Album) entirely, and earlier versions of several tracks that made the final release.
Everything here, apart from a couple of the early versions, has already been released as bonus tracks on prior reissues of Young Americans. Yeah, The Gouster is a fascinating listen, but mostly for historical purposes rather than as a discovery of some great long-lost Bowie album as Parlophone has been hyping it, and anybody with a CD burner could have created their own version of Hammered - The Young Leaves - Alive and Well (Vinyl disc albeit not with the few previously unreleased early mixes included here.
By itself, The Gouster is not enough of a reason to spend the heavy dollars required for this set. It is a major disappointment, not for what it includes but for what is missing. We get five albums worth of David Live but are missing some of his most important outtakes?
Perhaps a catch-all box set of unreleased material will gather these songs at some point, but it would have been far better to include them in the set that covers each era. The music is, by and large, stellar.
Still, for Bowie fans and completists who yearn for the highest possible quality versions of his classic albums, just like the first box, Who Can I Be Now? That is one fans are already anticipating with a great deal of excitement.

Jaye Jayle salvage the best materials from Iggy Pop and David Bowie's Berlin-era on Prisyn to construct a powerful and impressive engine all their own.

Laying the everyday experience of Black life in s America against Cthulhuian nightmares, Misha Green and Jordan Peele's Lovecraft Country suggests intriguing parallels that are often lost in its narrative dead-ends. On their first album in five years, Norway's Jaga Jazzist create a smooth but intricate pastiche of styles with Pyramid.
On everything from climate change to gender identity, archaeologists offer vital insight into contemporary issues. It rewards deep listening, and acts as a global rebuke against bigotry, extremism and authoritarianism. This is not to say that the entire album feels abruptly halted or rushed, as "The Underground Press" proves contrary.
Easily the most developed piece, if not the best, this is the swaying back and forth number on the album that allows the girl wearing the kitten ears at the live show to feel that she's comfortable enough with the crowd and herself to take off her shirt.
Stravinsky himself would be proud of this unadulterated use of rhythm and beat, augmented by loud hypnotic chords pulsing from a variety of instruments, ultimately falling prey to the screams and whoops that herald its necessary finale. Acting as a subtle trend in the album, the sense of prevalent necessity from song to song further merits one of the superior critiques that can be lauded upon a work of art, the discrimination of timelessness.
This is not to say that the album could have been released at any given time with similar acclaim-- though it undoubtedly could have-- it's only a comment upon how the music flows so readily with complete and utter disdain for trend and fashion that it feels simultaneously primitive and advanced, while retaining every bit of its musical relevance.
In the end, the music leaves one with a sense of somber contentment and satisfaction as mysterious in origin as the warmth received from the open-hand greeting of a stranger. There's enough funky basslines and psychedelic island rhythms here to make you run a fever and dance all night to drive those evil spirits away. This is definitely one of the group's most psychedelic albums alongside Jaybird, and the only thing that makes it slightly inferior to it is the fact that the build-ups in the songs are not as strong.
