4 stars I must admit David Bowie has a telent, a talent for penning some great pop/rock songs, this album prooves it that even in the 80's and indeed now David Bowie is an important icon in rock music in general. I feel this is a very underlooked album and really had some fantastic moments, not only that but it had some great guests to join Mr.Bowie including King Crimson's own Robert Fripp on a selection of songs, and Mr. Pete Townsend using his talent on BECAUSE YOUR YOUNG.

There are a lot of standout songs on this collection, some you may already know ASHES TO ASHES, FASION SCARY MONSTERS (AND SUPER CREEPS) but i think the three songs that are most underlooked are the opening and closing tracks ITS NO GAME (numbers one and two) two great pop songs with an arty flavour and TEENAGE WILDLIFE now this song is quite the epic track on the album again with quite an arty edge;

It's No Game (No. 1) - 9/10 Up the Hill Backwards - 8/10 Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) - 9/10 Ashes to Ashes - 10/10 Fashion - 10/10 Teenage Wildlife - 10/10 Scream Like a Baby - 7/10 Kingdom Come (Tom Verlaine) - 7/10 Because You're Young - 8/10 It's No Game (No. 2) - 9/10

My Conclusion? yet another great addition to any Bowie fans collection
