Rewind back to the late 80's and Bowie has just released his worst album, Never Let Me Down, a misnomer if ever. He has essentially run out of ideas for his solo career, so what better than to form a new band. Tin Machine reunited him with the rhythm section Tony and Hunt Sales, last seen on Iggy Pop albums, and introduced us all to a guitar player extraordinaire Reeves Gabrels.

This band could rock as hard as any and yet retain a sense of "weird" that suited David Bowie to a tee, allowing him to once again redefine aspects of rock and take it somewhere slightly out there without losing standard rock fans on the trip. Reeves Gabrels proved himself to be a superb source of inspiration and a musician who could deliver whatever guitar effects/sounds were needed.

This is a great collection of powerful music and memorable tunes that has very few duff tracks and loads of gems.

So, if you are the sort who gets bored with the norm and are feeling like trying something new from the chameleon of rock try this.

This is not as bad as many make out! Some very good tracks and some so so! If you love Bowie it is up there with Lodger, so you will know what I mean. If you are a casual listener then try some classic Bowie first! An average Bowie album, but that means it is still a great listen and a slow grower! I picked it up second hand and cheap and I enjoy it on occasion in the car! Give it a go!

I don't know why so many people put this album down! It isn't the best by Bowie by any means but it is ok, there are some decent songs on here, 'Run' isn't too bad and 'Bus Stop' is pretty good if not a bit short, plus the re-working of 'Working Class Hero' is pretty decent. So in the end it is a fairly decent Cd but perhaps just a little rough round the edges that's all. Still worth buying though definately

I like this album, it's definitely more hit than miss. Heaven's In Here and I Can't Read are my favourite songs, there are only one or two duff tracks on the album. The live shows accompanying the release of this album were incredible and this period of Bowie's work really shouldn't be overlooked.

I love this albums mix of Rock'n'Roll + Guitar Skronk
but mainly wanted to comment on the various cd reissues, the earlier versions with Hunt Sales (the long haired guy) in more prominent position on the sleeve are the ones to get for best audio quality. (this includes the version with the live bonus track)
as with all Bowie albums, avoid the over-processed 1999 EMI "remaster"
