Re: Yes, but that's not why [re: WildWind]  

WW, when I try to determine the point of Outside, what stands out most about the album's story is the idea of"art-crime".

Murder is now an art form.

When you say you listen to the album merely for the music, you are much like the person standing in front of the eviscerated form of Baby Grace admiring the music emanating from her limbs.

You like the music, you say, but don't consider the limbs to which the speakers are attached.

You prove Bowie's point exactly: we are able to distance ourselves from a 14 year-old's death so well that it exists merely as an artistic expression.
