The Buddha Of Suburbia (Soundtrack)
by David Bowie
Released: Nov 1993
Label: Parlophone UK
The Buddha of Suburbia was a superior English miniseries about an Anglo-Indian coming of age in 1970s London. Though this album isn't really a companion soundtrack to the series, David Bowie composed its score and wrote a number of songs for it as well. While the '90s were not Bowie's best decade, he still came up with a winning album full of numbers that hark back to different stages in his career. Reportedly written and recorded in six days (!), the best cuts include the title track and "Strangers When We Meet" (which he would re-record for Outside).
