2 stars I'll never understand how Bowie could managed to get from his extraordinary world, full of aliens, glitter and apocaliptyc worlds to a R&B pop "Young American". The last album was a good one, with pop hits and artistic seriousness.

This is such a weak album, that all music sound kinda the same and bury all his past work - even with a promissing "Across the Universe"!. Luckly will have "Heroes" after a while, but this album is absolutely avoidable.

The only hit is "Fame" and lets face it: its the 80's wrapped 5 years before he actually gets here. Five years... five years...

2 stars, nothing special or remarcable here.

GKR | 2/5 |
