This tin is aural gold.
on 28 September 2012
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.
