In every Bowie's precious album there are at least three songs which are enormous for every listener worldwide.In this 80's album David Bowie created a different kind of music with dynamic guitars and unusual vocals for Bowie's stands.This album looks like a Michael Jackson's part of music.But the album contains some magnificent in musical quality songs like "glass spider"(with bowie's great vocals) and "time will crawl".Maybe the whole album doesn't look like equal to the other legendary albums but it's worth of listening.

Called by the most (including the White Duke himself)as the "worst Bowie album", NLMD shows Bowie at his 80's maisntream-pop weakest point. The album is simply overproduced and it's a lackluster performance "done to make money" between 80's pop fanatics. However NLMD offers some gems and interesting tracks (the Palmer's esque Day-In Day-Out, the underrated Time Will Crawl, the title track, Zeroes or the infectious Glass Spider). But sadly the album is mixed with awful filler (Shining Star, NY's in love, Beat of your drum, or a horrible and overproduced version of Iggy Pop's Bang-Bang). In conclusion, NLMD isn't an easy listening for everyone who isn't a Bowie's hardcore fanatic, but it's enough accesible and has enough hooks to make it worthwhile to the freaky lovers of the 80's arena synth-pop/rock albums. As NLMD displays, the failure of its "Glass Spider Tour" was dire.

Widely regarded by everyone - including the great man himself - as something of a creative cul-de-sac, the overall feel of Never Let Me Down owes more to Robert Palmer then to the chameleon of rock. Album opener Day In Day Out sets the standard with it's overbearing production, zapping horns and bloated guitar solos. It's a real shame too. Tracks like Time Will Crawl and 87 And Cry feature some interesting lyrics while the Lennonesque title track - apparantly a last-minute addition - is undervalued.Other than that what remains is messy art-rock, Glass Spider has a Bowie narrative delivered with an air of sheer boredom and as for Mickey Rourke's ''mid-song rap'' on Shining Star, well, words fail me.In conclusion a set including too few gems and lots of unecessary 80's stadium rock stylings. Black Tie White Noise was six years away and it couldn't come sooner.
