Recenzija albuma : David Bowie - Nothing Has Changed

Parlophone (UK) / Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings (US)

Titula rock-kameleona, koju je David Bowie stekao još daleko u prošlom veku, donekle je banalizovala jednu zapravo vrlo konzistentnu figuru i trajno prepoznatljiv stvaralački duh. Da, on je uskakao i iskakao iz raznih žanrovskih kanona, stvarao i uklapao se u trendove iz dekade u dekadu, ali ono što je sve vreme ostalo prepoznatljivo jeste onaj nebrušeni pečat, rukopis i glas neumornog istraživača i avanturiste u okvirima svojih umetničkih čežnji. Upravo zbog toga se naziv njegove najnovije kompilacije s ključnim stavkama iz duge diskografije čak ne čini toliko ironičnim ili neobičnim – "Nothing Has Changed" zapravo pokazuje da se ništa nije menjalo tokom toliko dugog muzičkog staža, odnosno, da se u stalnim izmenama itekako dala uočiti jedna odvažna, uporna nepromjenjivost!

Nova muzička zbirka sa ukupno čak 59 pesama iz Bowiejevog kataloga, koja izlazi 50 godina nakon objavljivanja najstarije među njima, veoma je važan diskografski događaj. Ono što je logički čini najpotpunijom svakako je samo njeno godište, odnosno, obuhvat koji pokriva sve etape, od prvog singla do današnjih dana. Poredak pesama obrnutim hronološkim redom pritom je odličan odabir prezentacije jednog tako kompleksnog i vremešnog umetničkog puta, tim više jer repertoar otvara jedna sasvim nova numera, "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)", čiji rastrzani, jazzom ozračeni jezik pruža sjajan uvod u dugo putovanje u prošlost. Jer, preslušavanjem Bowiejevih pesama od novijih prema najstarijima otvara se sasvim nov način povezivanja "kameleonskih" boja i dezena velikog autora ali i zabavljača, eksperimentatora i svojevrsnog futurologa, ali i inteligentnog tradicionaliste, u takvoj retrospektivi stalno vam servirajući rezultate nakon samih istraga.

Dugi put odvešče vas u ovom slučaju do samog početka, nulte epizode u singlu "Liza Jane" iz 1964., objavljenog još pod imenom Davie Jones with the King Bees. Putovanje vas pritom neće uskratiti ni za temeljitiji osvrt na inače ne plodne ni hvaljene devedesete, dok će najsnažnije, "berlinsko" razdoblje dobiti tretman praktično jednak ostalima. Što je opet odličan kriterijum, jer "Heroes", "Low" i "Station to Station", baš kao i "Ziggy Stardust...", "Hunky Dory", uz još pokoji naslov koji možete i sami nadopisati, ionako ne zaslužuju ništa ispod celovitih slušanja. Iz svega navedenoga, možete zaključiti kako je u pitanju ne samo obuhvatom najcelovitija, već i dosad zapravo najbolja retrospektiva Bowiejevog dela.

"Nothing Has Changed" je objavljen i kao izdanje sa dva CD-a sa dvadeset pesama manje (među tih dvadeset su i dve dosad neobjavljene numere sa neobjavljenog albuma "Toy" iz 2001., "Let me Sleep Beside You" i "Your Turn to Drive") poređanih hronološki od početaka do danas. Nije samo izostanak ta dva rariteta hendikep; dvadeset pesama je velika razlika, a i uobičajeni hronološki poredak pesama ima daleko manje učinka na konačni doživljaj od onog u punom, trodelnom izdanju. Dvostruko vinilno izdanje još je kraće, sa ukupno dvadeset numera.

Dakle, "Nothing Has Changed" – ništa se nije promijenilo: David Bowie je nezaobilazna ličnost u istoriji i razvoju muzike. Ovde je u ključnim stavkama navedeno i zašto je to tako, čak i kad je posrtao i kaskao. Uostalom, svi veliki umetnici znaju da posrnu ali što je još bitnije, nakon toga ustanu.
