Retrieved 9 November Now it seems that Tin Machine had existed solely to wipe away any memory of what Bowie himself calls his " Phil Collins albums".
And while the title-track featuring rapper Al B Sure! As an album, it was both a critical and commercial success number one in the UK. The 90s would be a decade of change and experimentation for David Bowie, and Black Tie White Noise was the first step on his new journey. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence.

Bought this after Bowie's death - up till then I'd pretty well ignored his later work "later" being anything after "Scary Monsters" in my mind, I didn't particularly like "Let's Dance" - and "Tonight" and "Never Let me Down" were dreadful , but after his death, I was keen to hear his voice again, and, after all he had recently been producing great stuff.
I find all his later albums benefit from repeated playing and this is no exception, but it is a bit of a mixed bag, with some excellent tracks and some not so good. Produced by Nile Rogers, it has a dancier, funkier feel to it than many of his later albums, though thankfully less commercial than "Let's Dance".
It also has an upbeat feel, being his "wedding" album, though it also deals with the sad issue of his brother Terry's suicide "Jump they Say" - one of the great songs on the album I also particularly liked "You've Been Around", a wonderful version of "Night Flights" and "Miracle Goodnight".
Not so good was "Don't Let me Down and Down". Didn't particularly like his "I Feel Free" version either, though it was good to hear Mick Ronson's guitar - recorded shortly before he died.
Overall a good album - and always good to hear Bowie's voice again. This is the only official release by David that I have not liked. When I read that David was once again collaborating with Nile Rodgers I that this would be something special. To be brutally honest it is a total let down. For me to say that hurts because of my lad David has left me with what I can only describe as a disjointed lack lustre CD.
I have always said that David had pushed his music to new levels, on this one it seems he was in some kind of whirlpool, not quite knowing where he was going to go next.
There is only one track that is brilliant and that is the final track. This release may have met with critical acclaim so I have stuck my neck out to say this is only for fans who wish to have every release from David.
I would also point out that the sound reproduction is excellent. When released back in this album got average reviews. It was a departure from Bowie's rock sound and sees him in quite a different, more mature mood.
There's a mixture of acid jazz, soul, electronic and some rock styles on here. Bowie puts his unique spin on them. I really like this album because it's such a department from Bowie's well known style of more straight ahead rock. It does sound a little dated now, especially with the appearance of Al B. A wonderful collection of his songs. This is fascinating, overlooked at the time. Where were we all? Evidently David was making some of his most interesting experimental music just after his wedding.
Now that he is so sadly gone we reconnect with his music in those 'unfashionable' periods when he was, we now see, making amazing music. For a start I'm biased as I've loved David Bowie since my teens, more years ago than I care to remember. This album to me was never fully appreciated on its initial release, despite it hitting no. Like all his recordings it was a progression from the last, I was always happy to follow where this amazing genius led me.
For me this was an indicator of how his later material would take shape, the template that brought us to the quite staggering Blackstar. Despite some lesser views from others I find this album has a continuity and thoroughly satisfying.
