1 stars Uuurghh! The worst Bowie album ever recorded... Awfulness from beginning to end. The absolute nadir of all his albums... Shockingly shallow and predictable. I'd rather listen to 'Tin Machine' than this garbage.

What on earth's going on with all this Americanism stuff? It sounds so alien and unwarranted other than gaining a few yankee bucks. All I know is that 'Young Americans' is utterly out of place in the chronology of Bowie's groundbreaking 70's works.

Tons of hideous saxophone and gospel singing are horrendously overpresent, which make my toes curl in annoyance.

In my opinion this is an utterly plain and dull album from the mid 70's that presents nothing new or interesting at all.

Give me the other worst Bowie album - 'Never Let me Down Again' any day... Yeeucchhh... Must be the drugs...
