2 stars Young Americans is not of a genre I can appreciate. It does however have a dome good songs, but his lyrics are poor considerng the potency of the lyrics on Diamond Dogs.

Having said that the title track is a masterpiece and captures a unique mood with its great lyrical imagery. Win is a good tune but the lyrics aren't great. Facinaion is marginally better. Right is pretty dull. Somebody up There Likes Me isn't brilliant. Across the Universe as usual is a brilliant cover version from Bowie, even more soaring than the original. Can You Hear Me is unmemorable. Fame is a catchy tune but verges on the cheesy.

Lose one mark for bad choice of genre, one mark for lyrics and a another for some unremarkable songs. Leaves us with 2 stars.
