Win - David Bowie - Young Americans
Label: RCA Victor - APL1-0998 • Format: Vinyl LP, Album • Country: New Zealand • Genre: Rock, Funk / Soul, Pop • Style: Pop Rock, Soul
Surrounding himself with first-rate sessionmen, Bowie comes up with a set of songs that approximate the sound of Philly soul and disco, yet remain detached from their inspirations; even at his most passionate, Bowie sounds like a commentator, as if the entire album was a genre exercise. Nevertheless, the distance doesn't hurt the album -- it gives the record its own distinctive flavor, and its plastic, robotic soul helped inform generations of synthetic British soul.
What does hurt the record is a lack of strong songwriting. As a result, Young Americans is more enjoyable as a stylistic adventure than as a substantive record.
