Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.74) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The title song might be Bowie's best ever, with the rhythm inspiring his most passionate love letter to his fans."

Q (p.134) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "For one album only, he swooped, strutted and sang lyrics like, 'sho'nuff', all of it convincing. He even sneaked in some big ideas..."

Q (6/91) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "From '75, 'Young Americans' saw Bowie abandon the mock-apocalyptic rock of his previous three LPs to climb aboard the Philadelphia soul train sound, 'Young Americans'' 'relentless plastic soul', as Bowie dubbed it, harnessed his writing to the feverish light funk which would, in a few years' time, mutate into world-conquering disco..."

Q (11/99, pp.140-1) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Bowie's first outright dabble with 'plastic soul' (his description) and provisionally entitled 'Dancin', was trademarked by floppy fringe and smart, tailored jacket, but the balmy guitar of Carlos Alomar is its true signature..."

CMJ (p.48) - "[With] waves of R&B vocal-backing, crests of crunchy sax work from David Sanborn and, of course, Bowie's affected-yet-restrained blues croonery."
