David Bowie - Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps): Wikipedia Album Entry
"Scary Monsters... and Super Creeps" is an album by David Bowie, released in September 1980 by rca Records.
It was Bowie's final studio album for the label and his first following the so-called "Berlin Trilogy" of "Low", ""Heroes"" and "Lodger" (1977-1979). Though considered significant in artistic terms, the trilogy had proved less successful commercially.
With "Scary Monsters", however, Bowie achieved what biographer David Buckley called "the perfect balance" and the album peaked at no.1 in its second week of release.
