David Bowie

Review of David Bowie's new CD - Hours...

David Bowie*** Hours… (Virgin) After Bowie’s tepid to lousy efforts over the last ten years, rock’s handsome androgyne is back with a real charmer entitled Hours… Gone are the days of toying with dance music: the 53-year-old icon of Ziggy Stardust fame relies solely on his unique blend here — a sound of which fans have not grown tired. To be heard on the new CD are the strains of such ’70s Bowie classics as Space Oddity and Hunky Dory paired with hints at ’80s commercial smash Scary Monsters. These, together with modern music technology and Bowie in outstanding voice — what more could you want?
