Synopsis

Album Description
The Buddha of Suburbia was David Bowie's 19th full studio album released in 1993. Asked to write and perform the music for the BBC2 mini series, although classified as a soundtrack, only the title track on the album was featured in the programme itself. The television adaptation of 1990 book, written by Hanif Kureishi, The Buddha of Suburbia is a (semi) autobiographical tale featuring Karim - a South London teenager desperate to escape the suburbs which confine him. Kureishi at the time was already well known for his screenplay of 'My Beautiful Launderette', the 1985 film which centered on issues of sexuality, race and class in volatile 1980's Britain.

"Buddha Of Suburbia is an album even some hardcore David Bowie fans don't know about. This was done for a TV mini-series of the same name in 1993.

And is among Bowie's best: this has the gloss of his early 1990s work like Black Tie White Noise. Diverse as that album is, Buddha Of Suburbia may be even more so. The score is a mix of dance music, some Lodger-like pop, ambient, and even free jazz. But the smooth sound makes the album completely cohesive.

It is simple but true: David Bowie is a master musician that can make any music he sets mind to. This is pooff."
