Hat down to Bowie, but this version is much better for me, song is charged with energy and guitars sounds like they should have – dirty and screaming, snare drum is dirty and fat, kick drum is dry as a bone (which is really good here), bass guitar pounding and they all together kicks devils? ass.. Real rock sound…
