About this album

“Lodger” is an album by British singer-songwriter David Bowie, released in 1979.

The last of the “Berlin Trilogy” recorded in collaboration with Brian Eno (though in fact produced in Switzerland and New York), it was more accessible than its immediate predecessors “Low” and “”Heroes””, having no instrumentals and being somewhat lighter and more pop-oriented.

However it was still an experimental record in many ways and was not, by Bowie’s standards, a major commercial success. Indifferently received by critics on its initial release, it is now widely considered one of Bowie’s most underrated albums.

    it's not very good. don't compare it to fear of music, this is fear of music except bad.

    That's true, but the fact that the tracks were more akin to the verse-chorus-verse typical song than those from Low and "Heroes" is the reason it wasn't seen as groundbreaking as the other two. But Eno and his "Oblique Strategies" cards did some incredible work in the techniques used for recording them. African Night Flight is much more astonishing in that way than many other Berlin Era songs.

    I think Lodger is at once more experimental and more conventional.

    This one wasn't as experimental as the other two of the "Berlin Trilogy", but it had pretty strange compositions to be a pop record. Maybe that's why it's not as revered as the other two. Not many people got it. In my opinion, the only bad track is Red Money, but that's because I just love Sister Midnight by Iggy Pop. One of the best, for sure.

    By far his best....and my album of the year....certainly the best of Berlin trilogy. [2]. Bowie at his experimental and creative peak. One of my very favourite albums of all time.

    Lodger does make me wonder if Bowie had just been listening to lots of Talking Heads when he made it.

    I just leave here unfavorable comment, so fellow below me can copy&paste it and use it againt me, like music was some kind of crusade or something, and everyone who has different opinion should burn.

    one of his best recordings, at least as good as Ziggy, Hunky Dory and Station to Station. i think this needs to be reevaluated by critics.

    Not his greatest but still great. Look Back In Anger is Bowie perfection.
