The key to the transition between Station To Station and Low (whose covers both employ images from Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell To Earth) is that it didn’t coincide with Bowie’s usual sort of artistic transformation: the persona swap. Bowie’s final mask, the Thin White Duke, travels no further than Station To Station. There’s no mask, no persona in Low. Just a rather gaunt young man in a ‘styleless’ dufflecoat, looking sideways to the viewer as if in a police mugshot.”

You are 35 years old, Mr. Vale. Why are you such a derelict? Such a piece of human junk? The answer’s simple. You’re a scanner, which you don’t realize. And that has been the source of all your agony. But I will show you now that it can be a source of great power.
