Hours... is, as you can probably ascertain from its cover artwork, a 90s David Bowie album. It featured a slight return to earlier forms of Bowie, but is still a beast quite far evolved from “Heroes” or some such. Reissued by Music On Vinyl in both green and blue / purple flavours, with a useful bonus booklet. Very limited!

- Hours... by David Bowie
7/10 Sean Ryan 6th July 2015
Hours... is a Bowie album that has floated beneath the radar of the public and even fans to an extent.
There isn't a 'killer cut' on the album but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The album works as a whole piece and the arrangements are excellent.
I bought this Music On Vinyl - Green vinyl copy of Hours... simply because the album wasn't in my collection and I'm extremely happy I did as It has made me appreciate the songs more. Sometimes It's good to listen to an album without tons of hype and thankfully, on this occasion, the album still bares fruit.
This won't be ranked among Bowie's best but I think it sits quite happily beside 'The Man Who Sold the World', 'Pin-Ups', 'Space Oddity', 'Outside' and others.
The sound quality on this Music On Vinyl release is excellent as is the packaging...etc.

Originally, "Hours" was released in 1999, but these coloured vinyl reissues are a welcome surprise. Back in 1999, Bowie's "Hours" did poorly, but on a second listen, there is a lot of talent and new material that at first seems like a throw-away "Hunky Dory". Sure, "Thursday's Child" and "Something In The Air" seem like frivolous pop, but take a second listen. There is a lot of layering going on and some of Bowie's lyrics are more complex than initially heard. Very listenable, and one of the best albums of his later years.
