Great Albums That Have Fallen Off The Critical Radar: David Bowie's Lodger

Eno, who collaborated with Bowie on the album as he did on those two previous LPs, later confided he and Bowie had "argued quite a lot about what was going to happen" on particular tracks. "It started off," he said, "extremely promising and revolutionary and it didn't seem to quite end that way."
