Default MB Bowie Classics: "Let's Dance"



More hits from the Thin White Duke as he embraced eighties pop and brought on board producer supremo Nile Rodgers. Three hit singles from this album alone. Still, though there would be hits on the next album this was kind of the last time he took control of the charts, and after this though his albums would always sell well you'd seldom hear his new material on the radio, as he became more of a not quite underground artist, but certainly less commercially available, let's say. And dance.

Whether this album popularised the sale of boxing gloves is a fact I do not know.

Are you a Bowie apologist? He did make some terrible albums, you know.

Funny how many of Bowie's 5/5 albums are far less than 5/5. Numbers are strange sometimes.

All depends on people's opinions. Other than Hawk, who's just going with a top score for every album it would seem.

I voted 3. Modern Love/Let's Dance are two of the best pop tracks he made and China Girl is pretty good too, but the second half is quite bad, especially Ricochet.

The only thing I have against his reasoning for doing that, is that it's completely retarded. That's the only complaint though.
