5 stars Aladdin Sane is the perfect counterpart to Ziggy Stardust; to put it quite simply, whilst Ziggy Stardust was about the dream of being a futuristic rock star, Aladdin Sane was about the reality of it. Composed during a tour of America, Bowie infuses his glam rock model with a rich dose of Americana, in all flavours from doo-wop to proto-punk to soul, and in doing so adds a generous dose of hard rock to the mix. The result is an album which is a perfect counterpart to its predecessor, trashy where Ziggy was debonair, lewd where Ziggy was coy, and brash and aggressive where Ziggy was gentle and playful. A fine entry to Bowie's run of classic albums.
