This is David Bowie easing on the cutting edge for a moment to settle into sound song craftsmanship. How many artists out there can lay claim to so many incredible and unique albums. In my opinion, Bowie has had ten albums I would call incredible, and this fits into that groove. Subtlety rules on this album. A deft hand by both Bowie and Reeves Gabrels has been used on this album to at times fill the empty spaces, and at other times let it flow. To say that I am impressed by this album would be a grand understatement. This is a probably not a great starting point for those not initiated into the Bowie craftsmanship, but to those who love him as much as I do...it's great punctuation to the progressive brilliance.

The lovely 'Thursdays Child' opens up and laments while 'Something in the Air' is an unusual slice of menacing techo/rock, 'Survive' strums along nicely as it exudes melody, 'If I'm Dreaming My Life' is a luxurious whirlpool of ideas in motion,'Seven' is simple and childlike,'What's Really Happenning' is a damn good lyric by a net competition winner with Bowie providing the music and Reeves dishing out a very cool guitar lick, 'The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell' is an out and out rocker type and it wouldn't have been out of place on 'Earthling', its the least likeable track on the album, 'New Angles Of Promise'is 80's reflective harking back to the likeness of The Banshees.....nice, 'Brilliant Adventure' is not quite as good as 'Crystal Japan, but it loops to satisfaction, and finaly, the album closes with 'The Dreamers'(could also be a movie title)providing us with a melodic climber, taking you out of the whole art of Bowie things. He's looking good, playing good live sets and this album will keep you tick tock 'till the next time round.
