The rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the spiders of Mars (album di David Bowie del 1972)

THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS OF MARS è il quinto album di David Bowie uscito nel giugno del 1972. Il disco racconta, scorrendo in 11 brani, di un mondo sulla soglia di un evento apocalittico, nel cui contesto un giovane musicista funge da ultimo baluardo.

Apre Five years, con una lenta andatura di batteri:, il titolo annuncia la fine del mondo dopo appena cinque anni, ottima la linea vocale disperata di Bowie. Soul love rimanda con fare melodico ad un trasporto religioso e non manca una citazione cinica sull’amore. La formidabile Moonage Daydream è una concatena di sesso e surreale del protagonista dell’album Ziggy, tra radici che affondano nel rock e le sorti dell’umanità. Altro classico è Starman, un messaggio che irrompe in tutte le radio per annunciare l’incontro dell’uomo delle stelle con i giovani terrestri ai quali promette di salvare il loro pianeta. It ain’t easy è un “blues bianco” con in evidenza la chitarra distorta di Mick Ronson e i cori di Dana Gillespie. Lady Stardust è introdotta da Ronson stavolta al piano e riflette sul “come” diventare una stella del rock. Hang on to yourself esordisce con una griffata di chitarra ed è una metafora sul rock inteso come sesso, ambizione e appagamento. Ziggy Stardust vanta una celebre e coinvolgente melodia e racconta ascesa e caduta del protagonista del disco. Suffragette City impenna tra pianoforte e chitarra. Chiude Rock ‘n’ roll suicide, spettacolare come una messa in scena teatrale/musicale intona le ultime ore di Ziggy, riflettendo al contempo sullo stato di una stella del rock.

Album seminale, Ziggy Stardust è completo, innovativo e magico, il cui successo è più che meritato attraverso la qualità della sua musica e una storia da” film sonoro”.
