Superb album. I'm not a Bowie fanatic, but appreciate that he is a British institution and he deserves credit for constantly attempting to defy categrorization. Certainly his catalogue includes some very good work and some that is less good. This album belongs in the former category. It might even be the best thing he's done.
What's really good about this album is that it's very straightforward - it doesn't aim at any particular style and you don't feel that Bowie is doing anything other than writing, playing and singing some songs. It's just very classy 21st century rock and roll.
