For me ashes to ashes remains the most emotional, beautiful song , that bowie did in his long carrier.

There a tons of counterfeit 're-issues' allegedly Made in Portugal currently flooding the market these days. Easy to spot because the cover has some serious printing issues - most notably on the back side where the green is just way off (original is also green but much less saturated).

Should someone change the title of it to "Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)"?
