9 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After the blockbuster success of Let's Dance, Bowie was still in a mood to strut his stuff. The exuberant "Blue Jean" proved he could still set dance floors on fire, and its hints of "Louie Louie" are probably no accident. But there are more ballads this time, as Bowie flexes his voice on Brian Wilson's classic "God Only Knows" and gets soulful on “I Keep Forgettin’.” The title song features two things you don't normally hear on a Bowie album: reggae rhythms and Tina Turner.
