3 stars Aladdin Sane is not a radical departure from the previous album however it is less demanding and revolutionary. Glam rock could best describe the style displayed here. After the first forgettable track, we have "Aladding Sane" that remind me of Steely Dan with the jazzy feeling. You can't miss the incredible avantgarde piano solo that is outside of rock realm. Saxophone free solo is also noteworthy.

"Drive-in Saturday" also has a fine melody and grove including pleasing saxophone.

"Time" has a piano staccato chords but also provides great support with more experimental parts. "The prettiest star" has a typical Bowie flavour, saxophone and melody. Next two songs are quite Stonesy although only one of them is their cover.

The album with highlights but not nearly as good as Hunky Dory or The rise...
