3 stars What's this? Another Bowie album? This one starts with a ten minute epic? It must be prog. Well almost. "Station To Station", the tem minute piece mentioned begins well enough, with sound effects, and a some what prog-like evolution of the melodies & themes. But of course Bowie has to ruin it, by evolving the song into a typical Bowie poseur dance-rock extravaganza. Oh well.

At least this album has some of Bowie's better pop tunes, "Golden Years", "TVC15" and "Stay". All three of these are among the best of his popular songs.

Unfortunately, there is also "Word On A Wing", a maudlin, boring song that could only, possibly, sound good played by Roxy Music, who could often make maudlin sound compelling. To make matters worse, my CD, the Rykodisc release, has the song twice, adding a live version, as well as a live version of "Stay".

This is an okay disk, but hard to belive it averages five stars here.

Evolver | 3/5 |
