Happy New Ears,
This review is from: Black Tie White Noise (Audio CD)
I remember when this album was released. Apart from the odd single, I was not a fan of post-Low Bowie, and all I owned was on vinyl. Time has passed (and much musical prejudice with it)so I decided to download this album out of curiosity and a sense of completion... sad to say! However, I was pleasantly surprised. It sounded fresh. Both the melodies and the album structure were unpredictable.
I have played it frequently over the last few weeks and have not tired of it. I keep hearing new things in the arrangements. Had I listened to it on release, I would probably dismissed it - not enough jangly guitar! Now I'm trying to think of other artists and albums I side-stepped, through musical snobbery, and give them a chance with my new ears.

A lot of Bowie's 90's work is wrongly dismissed by fans and critics alike, if you are feeling brave, then I recommend '1.Outside' and 'Earthling', it is Bowie once again "pushing the envelope" with new musical ground, but with each listen, the music becomes more and more rewarding.
