Smash Hit 1983 album featuring 'Modern Love' ,'China Girl', 'Let's Dance' & 'Cat People'.
David Bowie returned to recording after a four-year break with this relatively clean-cut 1983 album. Although offering another definite new direction for Bowie, with Nile Rodgers of Chic helping to produce a stylish post-disco dance sound, Let's Dance is a mixed bag. Much of the album's success was due to its three danceable hit singles--"China Girl," a sensuous Bowie/Iggy Pop collaboration, the distinctive "Modern Love," and the funky title track. However, much of the rest of the album is bland and vapid, marking the start of serious decline in Bowie's songwriting skills. A cover of Metro's "Criminal World" and "Cat People" are the only other strong tracks here. --James Swift

While Station to Station is my favorite Bowie record, and what I'd consider his artistic pinnacle, my other favorites are probably Scary Monsters and Lodger. I love this album, too, though. I don't get the harsh critique. I think some people just want to dislike something.
It's probably not for everyone, but what is?
If you love Bowie, Nile Rodgers production, great early 80's pop, or Stevie Ray Vaughan, then check it out (again). Somehow all of those things do come together and work quite well.
As an aside, I also like the version here of Cat People. It's more rock than the original soundtrack version with Moroder, but just as good in its own style.
