Never Let Me Down



Title Star Rating Pts Rating Comments
Day In Day Out

**1/2

6.48

Straightforward jerky rocker with soul overtones, but nevertheless rather dull.
Time Will Crawl

**1/2

6.49

Very similar to the first track, same comments apply
Beat of Your Drum

***1/2

6.75

Bowie's voice at its most creamy and seductive. Has a similar feel to Wild is the Wind but is let down by a dull chorus
Never Let Me Down

***

6.65

An attractive up-beat song with good instrumental breaks and use of harmonies
Zeroes

*****

7.50

Best track on the album, a return to the halcyon Bowie days. The Spiders of Mars are re-incarnated in the shape of the Zeroes. Ultra glam
Glass Spider

***1/2

6.70

A strange mix of spoken narrative and child like choruses which mix and mingle effectively.
Shining Star (Makin' My Love)

***

6.65

Fast paced, reasonably catchy piece.
New York's In Love

**1/2

6.45

Another rocker that feels as if it should come from Young Americans. Ultimately a rather dull song.
87 Cry

***

6.50

The good points in this song all too often are hidden in the hotch-potch of sound.
Too Dizzy

**1/2

6.45

Once again the riffs sound as if they should come from Young Americans. This has a solid beat but is primarily an anonymous song
Bang Bang

**1/2

6.45

Very similar to so much that has gone before. Very limited in originality and scope.
