Never Let Me Down Review (1989 CD re-issue)

by Adam Sweeting / Q Magazine


Never Let Me Down (1987) was worse, almost every one of David Bowie’s high-falutin notions proving turgid. He reached what many felt was his lowest creative ebb on the ensuing Glass Spider tour. But even that folly was outstripped by the dislikable Tin Machine, the four-piece band he formed in 1989 with Reeves Gabrels (guitar) and Tony and Hunt Sales (bass, drums). Supposedly a streetwise heavy metal group, they had the honour instead of delivering David Bowie’s worst album-until Tin Machine II in 1991. Bonus tracks (Absolute Beginners, Under Pressure, This Is Not America etc) flesh out these CDs.
