Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

'Hours...' is a great album, but the one thing that always put me off from it was the instrumentation, not so much the songwriting. My favorite single from this album would definitely by Thursday's Child, but this 'rock' version retains the cool, relaxing melody while giving a new, somewhat harder edge to it, a very good listen.

And then there is the airy, electronic-tinged b-side We Shall Go To Town which sounds like a precursor to the style of Heathen; I think this, along with the other outtakes should've made it onto the album, but you can tell that those songs would compromise the image Bowie was going for in it, still it's not one to be missed.

This single obviously could've a bit longer, but considering both tracks are great new pieces of music they most definitely make up for the length.

Hours has grown on me with time. But that is partly because I have taken the time to learn which songs to listen to and which not to.

Bowie went a bit too far in trying to show his mature and soft side after his earlier 1990s albums. We end up with a mix of song types that don't cohere that well, unlike the criminally underrated Outside album, which includes a vast spectrum of tones and styles that fit together despite the interrupting interludes to tell a story that never happens.

Anyway, Hours... The song titles are more monothematic than the songs and hide the great hard rock album under them, as does the slow start.

Thursday's Child is just too weak, to reliant on cliches and a simplistic refrain. (Seven suffers from a similar problem).

If we replaced the Hours... version of Thursday's Child with this mix, the comedown from Outside and Earthling would not be so jarring. It would also catch the attention of the listener and set up the proper expectations for the second half of the album.

Both of the extra tracks would also have fit well on the LP. We Shall Go to Town is more insidious than the title suggests, a song that would fit well on Outside or The Next Day.

Or be part of an energized Hours...It would be a fine replacement for Seven, Survive, If I'm Dreaming My Life...there really are so many songs on Hours...with weak or cliched titles it makes me sad.

But as Hours... has 10 tracks, it could have just been added without bumping anything.

Now 1917 is a semi-instrumental in the style of Warszawa (Var-sha-va for those who want to know how the Poles pronounce the capitol of their country) or Pallas Athena.

Again, it could serve as a darker replacement for Brilliant Adventure, a tiny trifle.
