It marked Bowie's reunion with Brian Eno, whom he had worked with among others on his Berlin Trilogy in the 1970s.

And David Bowie wanted to say something about it. But he didnt say a thing in the most traditional way, because he used another type of songwriting for the album: What Brian did, which was really useful, is he provided everybody with flash cards at the beginning of the day. On each one, a character was written, like You are the disgruntled member of a South African rock band.

But Outside, Bowies first album since his 1993 debacle, Black Tie, White Noise - and a highly anticipated studio reunion with Brian Eno, the co-architect of Bowies bench-mark Berlin trilogy Low, Heroes and Lodger - is way too much of a good thing. Bowies almost pathological fear of dropping all the masks, of simply reveling in the power of a good chorus and the soulful quiver of his maturing tenor, has driven him into multiple-personality overdrive and forced melodrama. The music - a potent collection of avant-garage riffs and rhythm notions co-written mostly with Eno and echoing the weir

This is a really wonderful release of a really fantastic album. Bowie, reinvigorated in the 90s following a period of artistic wandering, released some of his most daring and confident work in "1. Outside." To hear it ringing so crisp and clear, revealing many intricacies easily looked over in other releases, is a real pleasure.I bought this the moment it was made available and it's been one of my favorite LPs in my collection since. If you can snag a copy for a good price, it's well worth it; it even comes equipped with the absolutely bonkers companion short story printed in the gatefold.<<What more could any no. 1 packet sniffer ask for?>>
I like this album too.(Outside and Let's Dance are maybe my favourites, both for very different reasons). Regarding the * absolutely bonkers * companion story, it's all based on real artists. So, the sleuthing involved in interpretting the lyrical story is sifting out the fact from fiction. It's a very strange comment on 'outside art', artifice, the alieneity of people and madness. If I talked to Bowie about any of his albums it would be this one. As well as the surface of the story, I'm sure Bowie invested all of his experience as public-commodity-musician into these (twisted?) lyrics.But Outside isn't just its weird story, inserted throughout are some of his strongest tracks holding the album together: Strangers When We Meet, I'm Deranged and the perfect pop song with PSB, Hallo Spaceboy.

In Amazon you can find the new Friday Music reedition at hot price and worwide shippment for a reasonable price: https://amzn.to/2D9k9yT
https://fridaymusic.com/collections/all/david-bowieOutside double LPs are back up for order in a couple of different colours if anyone needs one.
So whatever happened to this release? It looks like all traces of this release are gone from Friday Music's website. Has anyone received their copy yet?
I am in Spain and I have made a pre-order on amazon.COM at a very convenient price. Check amazon.com not uk
Likewise. I don’t get some people’s attitudes though. I posted these details onto a Bowie collectors forum and all I got where snide comments about ‘reissues’!? though they all seem happy for the umpteenth reissue of (insert name of any easily available LP) somehow this is seen as some sort of outrage!? Rant over, ordered mine, f&£k the fanboys!
Glad I saw this comment! Even given the (ludicrous) postage to the UK, it's still a quarter of the price of a sealed copy of the 2015 white vinyl version. Pre-ordered mine. Dread to think how much they'll be selling for once they're sold out from the initial retailers!
Postage to the UK is ridiculous... That's a shame. I'm out.
Great! Just ordered. Was this widely known or just sneaked out? I had no idea so big thanks!
About this expensive white vinyl edition of Outside - and some people complaining about the price now it is collectible. One of the issues about music appreciation, marketing and 'fandom' is the phenomenon of waves of popularity in music, regardless of the quality of the music. It seems as though people want this white edition Outside only because of Bowie's current popularity and the 'perceived' value of the album NOW (rather than the music and the meaning it holds).When Outside came out in 1995 Bowie wasn't popular anymore, he was past his heyday. It was a period which lasted about 2 x decades. People would say, 'oh, Bowie is past it now, his brilliant albums are all in the past'. In fact this album was misunderstood and under-appreciated. Fans did not flock to purchase it then. Obviously it did get some critically good reviews (they were mixed). Outside was largely ignored, despite, or even because it was a Bowie album - and - it was a return of the dynamic duo of Bowie and Eno! So, what DID fans want from Bowie, if not this? There was promise that Outside was to be a 5 x part series chronicling the coming millennium - but that never happened. Perhaps if media and fan reception had been more welcoming and appreciative then the series would have happened. Fans didn't care about a full vinyl edition of the album at that time, in fact vinyl, too, was pretty much ignored at that time.I'm not even convinced this album is properly appreciated by those who want to purchase it now. Is this your favourite album - why do you want the full version on vinyl? Is this an album you listen to in awe? What is it you like about this album? Have you read the lyrics? What does Nathan Adler mean to you? Do you know what the Viennese Actionists, Ron Athey and Outsider Art refer to? It's extremely ironic that the title of the album Outside, is where this album firmly lay at the time. Outside, and if all continued in the same way, forgotten.Amazingly, as often happened with Bowie, the alien was again turned inside out. And he was back in - all pretty much because of his return to form with The Next Day - an album I like, but which is pretty lame (in my small opinion) compared to Outside.So, all of those 'fans' left on the outside, moaning because they haven't got a white vinyl edition of this album. Your moaning does not hold much meaning. You are just reflecting the down-side of the all-to-common vagaries of pop culture, popularity, music commercialism etc which Bowie was singing about, at his best, on the Outside.Outside is a brilliant concept album. And it can be heard, in full, on CD. It takes a while to get to appreciate this album, but it is well worth the effort. As well as its particular millennial themes of that time, it holds a light to art and life in general and has a lot of fun on the way. It is a seminal, loving-the-alien Bowie album. Perhaps if you take the time to get to know the album, when you die, and get the chance to meet Bowie, you won't be strangers when you meet.
What a plodding, self-indulgent post this is. Do you want a cookie? Who cares how Bowie was perceived in 1995 when this album came out? That has absolutely nothing to do with how enjoyable someone may have found it on the day of its original release. Was I supposed to not care about it just because the rest of the world considered Bowie to be passe? Well crap, I'm sorry I didn't get the memo and I allowed this to become my favorite Bowie album all these years. I wanted this album on vinyl because I liked the vinyl format and I loved the album. Not because of Bowie was suddenly popular again after his death.
I am glad I snagged this on Amazon before they sold out. I'm only 29, but this is my second favorite Bowie album after Low. A shame other's can't appreciate it as much.
black coffe
Alright, you's lit a fire under this old guy... I have to make a long winded old guy comment. Forgive me. Indulge me. This is spot on. Now, I can't say I've appreciate Bowie since the 70's, because that would be a lie. I wasn't born until 1984. When I came of age and began my interest in music, the most popular artists were the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears and all that. Now, those pop artists always have their place and I don't have any animosity toward them, but for whatever reason it just wasn't very meaningful to me at. All my friends liked this kind of music, but I didn't. Why didn't I? Was I just not a "music person?" I decided to find out and did some research at the various music stores that still existed at the time. I must have sampled hundreds of newer releases and couldn't find anything I liked very much until I came across a section next to The Beatles section labeled 'Bob Dylan.' The most recent release at the time was something called 'Time out of Mind.' BOOM. Dylan was the gateway. First to classic rock, then to blues, then to to every other thing he siphoned inspiration from (including reggae). This led me to Bowie. The most recent release I could find at the time was Outside. This was in 1998. This album blew me away. I loved the weird, abstract approach to narrative. I loved the songs, I loved how it was both a bricolage, but also somehow cohesive. Tight, yet loose. Conservative, yet excessive... I listened to this album very often for many years and followed Bowie closely afterward. This is also true of Dylan. For both of these artists, as well as many other 'older' artists during this time, i only sampled their heavy back catalogue when I got bored of the newer stuff, which was almost never (now I'm fairly well versed in both, obviously).I like Bowie's Heathen even better than Outside. It's still easily my favorite Bowie and it's a CD I played the first night I spent with my wife. Instead of being creeped out, she instead decided to stay married to me for 14 years (and counting). It wasn't until college that I even became aware of the bias people could have toward older artists. I get it, we always want new stuff and new people. But I was genuinely shocked to see people's faces when I told them I loved Bowie. This was in 2005! In a major metropolitan city! I actually had one professor tell me that "No artist ever does anything great after they turn 30." I had another professor laugh at me in class when I made the claim that Bob Dylan's "Love & Theft" was likely his greatest studio work (and opinion i still stand by, it's considered a Dylan classic now, btw.) In fact, throughout the entirety my youth, I had never heard a peer express a positive opinion about the 'old guard.' I kind of understand this. Sometimes good artists burn out. But that's what separates good and great for me. If you burn out, you're probably good, though you may have achieved something great. If you are able to continually (if intermittently) create new and interesting things throughout your life, you're probably a great artist. You are absolutely 100% right. For most, Bowie was dead in the 70's. Dylan was dead in the 60's. They weren't new. They weren't wanted. except by commited fans.Today, younger people seem to be less susceptible to these types of bias' and are more open to many different types of sounds and phases from many different types of artists. Now if one of my students (I'm a teacher now) hasn't heard a Bowie or a Dylan, it's not because they have a bias, it's because they don't have time or their interests are elsewhere. One of my greatest joys as a teacher has been seeing how young people today are far more open minded than the young people I grew up with. I actually exchange records, CDrs, mixtapes and USB sticks with many of my students! Every genre, every era, every type of artist is welcomed. Including classical. INCLUDING EARLY MUSIC! I'm amazed and humbled. I have one student I especially like, I got her interested in Dylan. She started with his more recent stuff, her first was Shadows in the Night. She was amazed. Had no idea what it was. She called in 'Country jazz.' Maybe she's right! Her next Dylan was Blonde on Blonde. "WHO IS THIS GUY!?" Now she's well versed in Sinatra and the American Songbook... In many ways, it's a cool time to be alive and to be connected with young people. At first, they might seem less engaged because they're always looking at their phones, but what today's youth lack in focus, they more than make up for with breadth and energy. I love my studentsFinal story:When I met my wife, we were both 18. We got married very quickly after we met. Less than a week. I made the right decision. However, she came with a side-kick: Her miniature dachshund. My wife had had this dog since she was 11 years old and took the dog with her everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I was ok with it. I loved the dog too. This dog stayed with us, in good health, until the night of January 10th, 2016, the day Bowie died. Needless to say, Blackstar is an emotional favorite for both of us. I found this particular LP (Outside) in China, btw. I bought it for 10 bucks.
Hi Robert BergsteinThanks for the reply. I wanted to put the white vinyl Outside album into a hopefully fairer context. With the Bowie hysteria, then a flood of re-releases, some rare, others pretending to be rare - things have been said which don't stack up. Because the white edition is the only full edition of Outside on vinyl, it isn't in the same market as other highly priced Bowie items, novelty issues such as: the Starman pic disc and other 40th anniversary pic discs; the Paul Smith Next Day on red vinyl; and the more recent oriental colour vinyl re-releases.Outside, weirdly, was released in a green vinyl edition by the V&A to coincide with their exhibit (fascinatingly called BOWIEISINSIDE !!!). This V&A strictly ltd edition was again, still only the excerpt version and at one time was worth more than the white edition. Time is rectifying this anomaly and the full white vinyl edition is finally getting the credit it deserves.It is easy to get seduced by collectibility, the beauty of special production qualities and soaring prices. To be fair those things can all be part of the fun. However, it's a shame when the madness reigns and the music continues to be ignored.I know what you mean about the expense of buying vinyl when you already have the CD. There are some nice digi-pack CD editions of Outside, you can read the Nathan story comfortably in the little booklet - but you do need a magnifying glass and it's well worth reading. Sometimes you have to ignore the trends and just go for what you want.
I only didnt buy it in 2015 because its Expensive to replace every CD you have with some elite artist. They are ruining us! :-)
Brilliant. Totally agree, although I ‘only’ have it on CD. Still same good songs, but without the prestigefull vinyl format - thats ok. I can wait.
This was released in 2015. Why are people complaining about not being able to get it 2 years later. It was easily available at the time. It is a nice pressing, little surface noise. I'm sure if the boxed sets continue this will be included in the 90s box; otherwise they are bound to release a special edition...it's an album that deserves celebration in the Bowie canon.
I know at my local record shop it was easily available for a good while, I bought one a week or so after the initial drop date and they still had copies a month later. I think some Bowie fans might have balked at the higher than average retail price at the time of release (I think they were $45-$50). Although it is long gone now, that has more to do with normal supply and demand of an artist like this, I'm far from the only one that dives deep in David's catalog.I do love OUTSIDE, a very under rated LP.
Look at every listing on the marketplace. They're all in brand new condition. If Bowie fans got them when they were available, then there would be at least one or two used copies. But the flippers got them.
This is a fantastic repress! I had the original "Excepts from.." horror. Only bits of the whole thing, and noisy garbage vinyl. This is clean and the fidelity is superb. A very different experience to listen to. Don't know if it's still in print.
I emailed friday music, they don't have the license for this anymore, and they don't know if and when it will be reissued
This album is being reissued on January 4, 2019. Amazon and Barnes & Noble have pre-orders available for two different color variants. Hours is also being reissued that same day.
It will be included in one of the upcoming Bowie boxes. Hence the limited license that was given.
greed style
FUCK!! So we have to wait another 20 years for a vinyl release of Outside?!
Anyone know how may of the double whites were pressed, please?
Not 'helpful' at all, thanks very much for nothing dude. :-(
Dunno...but i have one on the way right now ????
Hilarious Kangaroo
another good album taken off by speculators... :-'( . . .
buying a record 25€ on the sole purpose of selling it 135€ later is speculation,sorry to open your eyes ; it's the same as concert ticket bots
No, you just missed the release & looking at your posts, you blame speculators for everything. I wouldn't part with my copy for less than a ridiculous amount.
Amazing pressing - what a punch and instrument separation! Dead quiet, no surface noise. Worth the price.
WOW! I am very impressed with this pressing!!!I loved the CD when it came out, this sounds so, so much better. The separation is amazing. I was worried about the colored vinyl .. Nothing to worry about here, the silence is deafening. Great Job! Worth the money!
I bought it 50€, it is expensive, but it's an album that lasts. Perfect pressing, no surface noise, every instrument is clear, and the music is perfect. Please choose this version, not the excerpt one, this album worths his 70 minutes.Just one minor thing : Sleeve is larger than usual, this disc steps out of my collection.
This is the one to get. A beautiful album produced beautifully - and in 'completeness'! (Who would want the shorter version?)
It was only 25 upon release. The shorter version was done against David's wishes anyway.
who? those who can't afford to pay 150€ maybe? . . .
I agree, I can't understand why MOV only released the edited version. They missed the mark there.
Funny duck
Very nice edition, it sounds great for me, good and silent pressing, correct artwork.
Is it possible that there is a repress of this coming or already around? I was just wondering because of the mass of entries in the marketplace tonight. Also there are a few websides that indicate a repress coming...looking forward to it. Cheers.
I had ordered this from Amazon back in February but they ran out of stock but I kept my order in and they finally got it back in stock and I just got it. Check to see if they have it. Well worth the wait. It's beautiful and sounds amazing. So much to enjoy on this album.
I think the repress has been completed, as I've heard of some people who ordered it from sites like Amazon back in January and were placed on backorder have had their orders shipped finally. I wouldn't pay $100 for it right now, wait to see. I did see a seller put one up a sealed one on here for $60, and it was gone pretty fast, so there will likely be more finally coming out, though the reseller market might not have the prices come down that quickly.
Okay - thank you. It is still one expensive vinyl! Friday Music says it is on backorder, whatever that actually means. Altho with shipping and possible customs 70€ doesn't seem that outrageous.https://fridaymusic.com/product.aspx?pc=Y4LPFM0310&cp=80419_80591_80637Cheers!
No no, not in the range of half the price! 70 € seems to be a good price as far as I can see, 65€ is the best price. Don't get me wrong, that's definitely a high one, but it's better than 130 bucks. There is a swiss and a german side (of the same company cede.ch and cede.de) with a lower price, but they didn't have it in stock when I asked. The original price last year was around 40$, wish I had bought it then ;0) Take care!
OK, no worries. But what is "cheap"? I have my eyes on a copy at local store for 70€, but if cheap means half of that, then I'm going to wait until one of those copies shows up somewhere where I can order it.
Hi Devnoy, think I saw it on musicdirect.com - but to be honest, I cannot find it anymore, sorry. But it's interesting that so much "cheap" sealed copys show up in the Netherlands right now. I bought one (unfortunately not for the current best price), there is no hint that is a repress but I haven't checked the runouts yet. Regards!
Care to share some links to said websides? Thank you.
This pressing is nearly perfect. For being on colored vinyl, it really sounds magnificent and surely gets the job done. It sounds a bit more "loose" than the CD pressings from the past twenty or so years. Lots of details are now notable, the soundscapes are wide and varied. However, the quality leaves a tad bit to be desired with the abstract minimum of surface noise being present, without obscuring the music itself. For the price Friday Music asks for this (could be a bit more cheaper), you are getting a great deal. Whereas the tri-fold is not all too necessary for the Earthling release, this makes great use of the tri-fold by using liner notes and the "diary of Nathan Adler" alongside some lyrics from the album (which I'd assume were in the CD booklets). The scans used for the cover and said pictures are near-perfect aside from the back cover being slightly blurred. It would've been nice to have the inner sleeves have lyrics or just inserts w/ lyrics considering this is a hulking 70+ minute concept album, but you can't get everything you want I suppose. Not too much to complain about here, go straight for this instead of the Music on Vinyl version (well, unless MoV gets to issuing the complete album instead of the archaic "Excerpts" version).
I would have liked to have a listing of who plays what on this record. Some phenomenal performances.
180 gram is only as quiet as standard weight vinyl. The difference lies in the color. Black carbon-based colorant used for the black vinyl versions is the most efficient noise reducer. White colorant is one of the worst. A HQ vinyl pressing can be really dragged down by the wrong choice of colorant.Much better to leave it clear, which is the original color of vinyl (PVC), and is the second most quiet color option (after the black). All other colorants actually increase background noise, except if the colorant is used in very small quantity to give the effect of translucency. In that case, HQ color vinyl is super quiet. I jad the chance to notice how, for example, the "Translucent Purple" version of With The Dead's self-titled debut album is quieter than the "Solid Purple" one. Same pressing plant, same edition, only different quantity of colorant used.
