4 stars This album to me is Bowie's best output from the 90's.

Half of this album is abit poppy.

''Thursday's Child'' was clearly made for the mainstream.And I guess its Bowie trying to fit in with the 90's adult comtemporary scene which no doubt he does very well. It also reminds of the old Hunky Dory days.

He continues this style for the next two songs.''Something in The Air'' is really mystical in a sense.

''Survive'' is a love song that is very humble.Its probably abit of an anthem.

DB then goes into the 7 minute song ''If I'm dreaming in my life'' its really interesting and it also kinda hints at his next two albums.Probably a highlight of the album.

''Seven''is a little more folky.His lyrics in this song are amazing.

''Whats Really Happening'' is such a powerful track.Bowie has an electronic feel with this song.It brings you back to his Berlin Era period.Its more like something you would hear on Low.

''The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell'' is a little more modern than the other songs.

''New Angels of Promise'' is my favorite track on ''Hours...''.He really just dominates here his powerful vocals ont his track are just awesome.It reminds me alot of the ''Heroes'' album.Like ''Sons of The Silent Age'' is very similar to this song.This is the song you need to hear to get a good idea of Bowie.

''Brilliant Adventures'' is largely an instrumental done on flute.Its very new age.

''The Dreamers'' is so great.Its very experimental like the rest of the album.

This is Bowie's best work since ''Scary Monsters'' and it really tells you why Bowie is an icon. Because after 30 years the man can still make amazing albums.
