    Great selection but very poor audio engineering.

    Was this someone's family member that got to engineer the audio quality of what could be a great CD compilation? The high end (treble) dominates both the mid-range and almost eliminates the low end (bass) levels. "Major Tom" starts out so low you can't even hear it for about the first 25 seconds then it's all treble sounding. The balance is heavy to the right side instead of centered for stereo / multiple speaker listening whether on a home or car system. Best Buy should be embarrassed to offer let alone sell this to their customers. It is unbearable for even an amateur audiophile or someone who just wants to relive their vinyl album days. This CD version is trash and I can't wait to return it for a refund.

    Best of Bowie - Enough Said!

    I didn't have any David Bowie music until I purchased this CD at Best Buy. I knew Bowie's hit songs and I have some favorites from the 80's. As I was browsing the Best Buy music section and noticed this Bowie greatest hits compilation, I decided it was time time to add it to my music collection (at a great Best Buy price). The Best of Bowie is a true compilation of the best songs of all the different eras and styles of Bowie music. I recommend this CD for Bowie's finest music and as a tribute to a rock music hall of famer who the music world lost this year.

    David Bowie became a pop icon for so many reasons - his many looks, the questions regarding his androgynous demeanor, etc. The music, however, answers all the questions, silences all the naysayers, and gives us something to refer to when pondering the Bowie Experience in its entirety. From "Space Oddity" to "Change " and beyond, this compilation spans more than forty years of performances- hits, misses (few!) and everything else in between. Put on your red dancing shoes and get busy - with BOWIE!

    Most of Bowie's biggest hits that the casual fan would be familiar with are here, including "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Rebel Rebel", "Young Americans", "Fame", "Let's Dance" and "China Girl". -Underrated gems "Suffragette City" and "Ashes To Ashes" have been included as well. -"Under Pressure", his collaboration with Queen, and the cover of "Dancing In The Street", a duet with Mick Jagger, found their way on to this collection. David Bowie rocks!!!

    This CD needs no review honestly since it is so awesome. Who would not like this CD?! I do not know anyone who dislikes Bowie. Bowie was a true icon and all of m favorite songs (the older songs) are on this CD. I bought this so I can listen to all the songs without having to use my iPhone and hooking it up to the AUX in the car. This CD will not disappoint. I love all eras of Bowie.

    Greatness from a music icon

    Of course I give five stars for the greatest hits of such a prolific music icon. I heard and enjoyed some of these songs before I knew who David Bowie was. Anyone who came of age in the 70's will relish this collection. True fans will want a more in depth sampling of his works. But if you're reading this review, you probably don't have his entire library, so this album is exactly what you're looking for.

    One of the Greatest Albums of All Time

    This CD is truly amazing. David Bowie has had so many hits and this collection of songs is truly impressive, given that they're all from one artist. I've been listening to it a lot and I was blown away the first time I heard it. I had no idea how many other songs I knew on it besides the ones that I already knew by name. Almost every song on this album was a major hit, all of which are absolutely fantastic.

    This is a great disk. It's amazing how many cool songs he did and that were generational. Great music with always great guitars. I wish he didn't have to go but he led an amazing life. The sickest was how driven he was. He knew early and exactly what he wanted to do musically and there was nothing else and never a question. He did not play by any rules period. Kinda like Bob & Prince
