Of course it's 10 minutes long.

Well...I guess that's a little bit better than the album cover.

Listen: James Murphy Remixes David Bowie's "Love Is Lost" | News | Pitchfork



Apparently it's called the 'Hello Steve Reich Mix' because it references Steve Reich's "Clapping Music". Note the Ashes to Ashes sample in there too.

I thought that was rubbish, totally forgettable.

What can people tell me about Tonight? It's not one of his more critically acclaimed efforts, I know, but it's been a long while since I bought a Bowie album (not including The Next Day) and I heard Blue Jean on the radio yesterday and loved it. Just looking it up online, I am shocked to see that it contains two tracks from Lust for Life? I always enjoyed Loving the Alien, too, from one of the best ofs I have.

If it's not his absolute worst, it's certainly in the conversation.

Yeah the two best songs are his two actual solo compositions Blue Jean and Loving The Alien. The latter I think is one of his best songs ever, it's what Modern Love was to the Let's Dance album, albeit compared to Tonight? Let's Dance is like listening to Low.... 8/10 and 10/10

So, the rest...

Dancing With the Big Boys
? this is what you are in, for generally speaking. It is the mid 80s Lots of big bad spacy, crashing drums/percussion, lots of female backing vocals and Power Station horns stabs everywhere, had this one been recorded with the Next Day/Reality/Heathen bands it'd be a decentish...... bonus track. 5/10

God Only Knows
? well, Christ only know why he felt the need to record this as some slow plodding drone/croon. 1/10

Tonight
? Tina Turner, reggae and the horns appear again, a bit more restrained this time, but you couldn't move for big brass stabs and extra percussion in the mid '80s and this record has tons of it. 3/10

Tumble & Twirl
, horns! fucking horns! big plucking bass, I know it was the era but it came out the same year and month as The Unforgettable Fire. 1/10

I Keep Forgettin'?
okay, just calmly tell yourself "fack! this was the same guy who did Young Americans, Ziggy, Low and Diamond Dogs ffs!!!!!!!" 0/10

Neighbourhood Threat
? another decent tune and again if it'd been recorded by the current band, maybe. 6/10

Don't Look Down
? jazzy piano, slightly reggaeish, references to shanty towns, kinda 1988 Simply Red feat. David Bowie Impersonator. All in all like most of the album - a bit rubbish.... 1/10

Tonight is usually best summed up as; "not as woefully bad as Never Let Me Down" but really who the feck was whispering in his ear back then...

Bowie's worst record is unequivocally Never Let Me Down.

Tonight and Never Let Me Down are his absolutely worst records.

Blue Jean, Loving the Alien and Time Will Crawl are absolutely wonderful songs.

The version of Time Will Crawl from the iSelect comp, naked of 80's style production is even more wonderful. I recommend listening.

So, Atomica sounds like a Lodger-Scary Monsters track. Loving it so far.

Yeaaaaah, this.

I was just putting together a playlist of random music, when I came across a stark reminder of something:



The man has certainly been guilty of horrible album covers before.
