In 1989, having long since conquered the world as a solo artist, David Bowie did what any genius pop star would do: he joined a band. Tin Machine's debut is a swaggering, jagged, purposefully messy hard rock record centered on Reeves Gabrels' howling, angular guitar lines. Tracks like the bluesy "Crack City," the driving “Under the God,” and the dissonant "Prisoner of Love" evoke Sonic Youth and the Pixies, even as they prefigure the grunge revolution that had yet to come.
This album demands to be be remembered. It is intense, direct and formidaable...Easily the most under-rated album in the Bowie universe. "Under The God" leaves you breathless, "Crack City" leaves you exhausted, and "Working Class Hero" leaves you afraid of what didn't come next. A second album would have been welcomed.
iTunes, WHERE is Tin Machine II ????
Tin Machine I has some good songs on it. But, in my opinion, Tin Machine II is FAR better. It's too bad that iTunes doesn't offer that album. Thank goodness I found the CD. If you don't have that album, GET IT :) The 3 songs that iTunes does offer from Tin Machine II (found on the Sound + Vision compilation) are decent, but not great. "Baby Universal", "You Belong In Rock n' Roll", and "One Shot" are must-haves! Find the album, you won't regret it.
Four geniuses at work
There was a second album, in 1991 called Tin Machine II. Nothing since has matched the raw power of the Sales brothers backing Bowie. I saw this tour in a theater which used only white back-lighting for the entire show, no color pots. Simply brilliant. Get this and find Tin Machine II.
