“Station to Station is more than just a classic David Bowie album. It’s one of the pivotal moments in 1970s rock, forged in a turmoil of spiritual anguish and commemorating the wayward quest which carried its creator from the American funk and soul of his previous incarnation to the European experimentalism of his next. That transition, as philosophical as it was geographical, crystallised into an album of dark power and muscular beauty, brought to life by one of the finest bands Bowie has ever assembled and led from the front by the monumental guitar of Earl Slick.” - Nicholas Pegg, author of ‘The Complete David Bowie’
