Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On the basis of Tonight, it appears that David Bowie didn't have a clear idea of how to follow the platinum success of Let's Dance. Instead of breaking away from the stylized pop of "Let's Dance" and "China Girl," Bowie delivers another record in the same style. Apart from the single "Blue Jean," none of the material equals the songs on Let's Dance, but it's appealing pop-soul and dance stylings helped make Tonight another platinum success.

    A classic masterpiece!!!

    I dont know why this album gets called david bowies worse album.This cd is great.there are so many great songs on this cd.My favorites are loving the alien, tonight"with tina turner" danceing with the big boys, neighborhood threat"this songs rocks" infact there are so many great songs on this cd its impossible to pick just one or two or three.In fact my message to David Bowie is David if you read this we love you and we love this album... those so called critics dont know what they are talking about... we love this album.... you rock keep it up!!!. and to everyone else if you arent sure if you dont own a david bowie cd and are thinking about just buying one this is the one I reccomend.Its worth every penny.

    A lackluster perfomance

    Undoubtedly, Bowie's worst record ever, simply because this is a weak and boring soul-pop record. The only true good songs are the epic Loving the Alien and the cool Blue Jean.

    Uneven

    This 1984 offering from the Thin White Duke is a collection of plodding soul type ballads and some leaden rock-pop.It's a real shame this isn't better. Things start promisingly with the gorgeous Loving The Alien and only the rock n roll number Blue Jean provides the other highlight. When the album's title track turns out to be the worst of the set you just hope there's a drawing board nearby. Those who want to hear Bowie at his mainstream best, should listen to Let's Dance. Tonight is for fans only.
