Geeze, what was this suppose to be?


Talk about derivative, this group (or whatever) steals from everyone. I'm not talking mood or style, but actual riffs of dozens of songs from early Simple Minds to Pink Floyd. You go through this thinking, "hey, I remember that". It doesn't help that every song is embellished with bug zapper squawks and all sorts of wee-oh stuff that sounds like a theremin trapped in a garbage disposal with a drum machine working the switch.
The pity is that some of the song ideas and the vocal performances are quite engaging. This thing desparately needed a producer strong enough to enforce a unified groove and tell the girl(s?) when to leave out the electronica. Try again, there's talent here.

Title: Pin Ups
Label: Capitol
Artist: David Bowie
Rating: 4/5
Customer rating - 4 out of 5
objective


Bowie proved his ability to tap into popular culture rather than his musical ability with Pin-ups. It certainly represented a musical zeitgeist at the time and just beat Bryan Ferry's equally nostalgia-filled These Foolish Things to Number 1 in the UK album charts. It contains classic versions of The Kinks 'Where have all the good times gone' and of The Merseys' 'Sorrow'. However, Bowie was not scaling the musical heights that his later work would and this album ranks among one of his weakest of the seventies. It really is for Bowie nuts only.

This is one of the best albums I've heard


I got hooked on Morcheeba fromt eh very first time I heard them. Their song "Never an easy Way" was heard in the beginning of the Buffy the Vampire Salyer episode "passion" and I fell in love with it right there. I searched everywhere for Who Can YOu Trust and All I could find, after months of searching, was the Big Calm, which I immediately bought, not having heard one song. I finally found this album while digging through the record bins at an alternative music store, and was estatic. I found it to be as good as, or better than, THe Big Calm, though that one was great too. It has found a permanent place in my CD player
