8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 10th February 2016

“Aladdin Sane”, released in 1973, followed two of Bowie’s best albums, 1971’s “Hunky Dory” and 1972’s “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars”. It doesn’t quite match up to them but it’s still a classic and does have its moments. “Watch That Man” is a great piece of lose, rock ‘n’ roll and the doo-wop pastiche “Drive-in Saturday” and the punchy blues-rock of “The Jean Jeanie” are up there with Bowie’s best. With songs such as “Aladdin Sane 1913-1938-197?” and the closing track “Lady Grinning Soul” he begins to explore his inner Scott Walker – a style he would return to frequently with songs such as “Wild Is The Wind” from “Station To Station”. “Time” made an impression on me from an early age – I was far too young to hear the line, “Time he flexes like a whore/Falls wanking to the floor” when I first heard it, innocently exploring my uncle’s record collection. I just don’t find "Aladdin Sane" as cohesive as its two brilliant predecessors.
