EDITORS’ NOTES

A testament to Bowie's refusal to repeat himself, PinUps is both a rockin' good time and a fearless artistic statement. He devotes the entire album to covering the mod-era British pop and R&B songs that informed England's glam-rock sound. And as you'd expect, these are far from karaoke renditions. His soaring tenor on Them’s "Here Comes the Night," his croon on The Merseys’ “Sorrow,” and Mick Ronson's slashing guitar on The Yardbirds’ "I Wish You Would" are explosively inspired.
