- DAVID BOWIE: SCARY MONSTERS [AND SUPER CREEPS] 1980: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: ITUNES: EXPERIMENTAL ROCK: Bowie started the 80’s as he was throughout most of the 1970’s- with a strong album- no let up. Who would have thought at the time that Bowie who was pumping out an album a year in the 70’s would only release four albums in the 80’s- [ plus one with his group Tin Machine} Scary Monsters would be a good balance between commercial success and critical success. His biggest commercial success would come with the next album Let’s Dance. Mount Rushmore: “Ashes To Ashes”, “Fashion”, “Scary Monsters” and “Up The Hill Backwards.” Bowie’s vocals on this album are widely considered to be some of his best.
