3 stars One more Bowie's album with post-80-th music. Is it good or bad?

First of all I believe, that because of Bowie's talent and professional level it's difficult to find really bad Bowie's album. OK, it's different ( as almost all Bowie's albums, is it strange for you?)

Yes, it's music is placed somewhere between soul vocal-rock and acid-jazz/house/pop arrangements. Is it a crime? Is this great album bad only because it explores territories which rock purists often hate?

But listen to music, complex arrangements, jazzy elements! For me that kind of music ( may be far from ortodoxal rock) is much more attractive than neo-prog cliches or second division sympho-rock repetetive wall of sound.

But - it's question of taste. Anyway, I can recommend this album for any open minded Bowie fan, I believe you will find many interesting things there!
