iTunes Review

This ambitious album has a lot going on, including a cameo by actor Mickey Rourke and the surprise addition of Peter Frampton on lead guitar. The pumped-up, club-friendly drums mark this as an ‘80s production, but Bowie was also writing offbeat songs like "Glass Spider," a mini-epic with spoken narration and a Tolkien-esque fantasy storyline. Bowie is touching on the title song, where he sounds remarkably like his late friend John Lennon. Another old friend, Iggy Pop, gets covered on the rowdy "Bang Bang."

Customer Reviews

Excellent airplay Bowie for the 80

Follow up to Let's Dance. Rocking with a big rhythm section. Nothing slow on this album. 80's glossy production works well with the material. Excellent musicianship. Nice guitar work.

Great hooking songs

Following up the 1984 Tonight album, David releases in 1987 an array of great songs!: Never Let Me Down and Absolute Beginners are my favorite.

He Let Us Down The Last time

After the extremely high standards set by one long string of amazing albums from Space Oddity to Let's Dance, Bowie hit a dub with tonight. This album proves that, Despite Tonight, Bowie could still make good 80's music. Helps us forget his one bad album. Love the album. Consider this album the sequel to Let's Dance and forget Tonight ever existed.
