Bowie pulls off a magnetic performance as the immoral,murdering,alcoholic...Baal
27 July 2001 | by (Cork,Ireland) – See all my reviews

We have a dramatic masterpiece here and the Music is used very well...both lyrical and instrumental, which has been re-released by Bowie's label.The opening "Baal's Hymn" sets the scene for the protagonist an ex-soldier, explaining his love of "the sky" alcohol, women and mass murder-----during an Orgy ,("When Baal saw lots of corpses scattered round,he felt twice the thrill ,despite the lack of room,space enough ,their not thick on the ground,space enough within this womens womb) - this line sums up the kind of character we are dealing with.The image of "the Sky" is also very important in this play,showing perhaps that Baal is bored with his life and wishes to die. Fantastic
