I find that when a band becomes successful, their follow up albums tend to sound somewhat over produced - now that they have access to the best studios and producers. With Bowie's work, since the 00's, I could always hear that cold, shiny quality that a professional studio brings, but they were still warm somehow. If feels to me like a lot of care went into the production of his work, all the way up the sound engineering chain.
