3 stars Another glam rock Bowie release, another review, how does this fare up to his older work? Quite well actually. Although not an essential album its still a great pop album with decent songs with catchy hooks and great musicmanship. Standout tracks include DRIVE-IN SATURDAY, THE PRETTIEST STAR and of course the classic THE JEAN GENIE, all pop masterpieces and just grest Bowie songs in general, the rest of the tracks on this release are not bad, just not the strongest material Bowie has ever released, but thats just my opinion they just never really held my attention that much;

Watch That Man New York - 6/10 Aladdin Sane (1913-1938-197?) -7/10 Drive-In Saturday - 9/10 Panic in Detroit - 6/10 Cracked Actor - 6/10 Time New Orleans - 5/10 The Prettiest Star - 9/10 Let's Spend the Night Together - 6/10 The Jean Genie - 10/10 Lady Grinning Soul - 7/10

My Conclusion? not all of this album really kept me listening as the songs featured were not as strong as say the first 2 Bowie albums, its not a bad release, just not fantastic, still gets a decent 3 stars.
