    I've read a couple of recent pieces on the various contradictory impulses that led Lou to produce MMM. The fuck you to his record company/public is part true, as is the bold artistic experiment angle.

    This paragraph could also apply somewhat to Self Portrait, though I find more dross and less redeeming nuggets in Bob's stew.

        maybe I like the latter because Bowie could afford far better drugs at the time.
