Product Description

Product Description

D'un côté, Tonight apparaît comme la suite logique de Let's Dance. De l'autre, il obéit à une démarche musicale différente, en particulier grâce au rôle majeur conféré aux synthétiseurs et aux arrangements de cordes signés Arif Mardin. Si le fidèle Carlos Alomar est venu prêter main forte à la star anglaise, c'est l'ami de longue date Iggy Pop qui se taille la part du lion, lequel a écrit ou coécrit cinq des neuf titres de l'album (dont la chanson éponyme enregistrée avec Tina Turner). Parmi les autres plages il faut mentionner "Blue Jean", "Loving The Alien" ainsi que "God Only Knows" et "I Keep Forgetting" par lesquelles Bowie rend un hommage sincère aux Beach Boys et au tandem de songwriters Leiber & Stoller. --Philippe Margotin

2 decades ago, david bowie released Tonight, the follow up to his blockbuster classic, 1983's let's dance. But by the time his Let's Dance / Tonight period arose, his songwriting began to slip.
Sadly, Tonight equals none of the material on Let's Dance, with the exception of the single "Blue Jean". Loving the Alien and I Keep Forgettin' come close, but the rest of the album seems unnecessarily moapy compared to the enthusiasm and sonic textures of Let's Dance. Producer Hugh Padgham has a different sound that fits Genesis (and Phil Collins) far more naturally than Bowie. "Neighborhood Threat" for example, feels more like a lost b-side to Genesis' self titled effort in 1983. That's not to say that Let's Dance had some sort of important theme or historical signifance, but the music "seemed" more important.
If anything good can be said about it, Tonight is one of Bowie's more interesting albums, like an attempt to limit the size of his audience.
Many critics tossed off Tonight as an album constructed of too many song covers.
Only die hard Bowie fans will care to own Tonight. Although it's undoubtedly an influential album for modern punk and industrial crowds, Tonight is really unmemorable, as it presents us with Bowie in his weakest form.

David Bowie is an artist with Class.whatever he makes he puts his own style in it and he's making it one of a kind.
"Let's dance" was a classic Pop album ,so is "Tonight".
There are some more rhytmical tracks with roaring bass ("Tumble and twirl","dancing with the big boys"), but whole album is more calm than "let's dance".The big hit from here is the title track - a charming reagge duo woth Tina Turner...
There's only one track simmilar to more typical bowie style - dark and mysterious "Loving the alien"
This is a dissapointing album for those Bowie fans that like more experimental periods in his career ("Low","Herous","earthling").But for all of you that like good eighties music and are apreciating other's work putted into this album to sound so good as it sounds will really like "Tonight". Enjoy!

This album is quite satisfying, certainly better than Bowie's dabbling with Tin Machine in the 90's.

It's not a "groundbreaking" album per say, yet "Loving the Alien" certainly is something special, though a bit too long (the single version is an appropriate length.

Most of the songs are really catchy, fun tunes, especially "Neighborhood Threat".

"Tumble and Twirl" is also very well-crafted and fun.

"Tonight" the title track is a little too simplistic for Bowie, and the album certainly suffers for being named after it. - Maybe "Loving the Alien" should have been the album's title.

"Blue Jean" I also find a bit tedious and droning.

That said, the album as a whole deserves 5 stars for being so underrated by grouchy shmucks out there who hated the "80's sound".

It's interesting to see what rumours can do to an album. It's only a few years since I got in touch with Bowie, and have been a fan ever since, virtually running out the house to buy all the albums in his amazing, colorful and quite often brilliant discography. I heard them all, but in all those years, I kept ignoring 1984's "Tonight" (and I still haven't heard it's 1987 follow-up, "Never Let Me Down"). With only very few positive reviews to back this album up, yet a truckload of negative ones to break it down to pieces, I was expecting awful drivel, an album so incredibly bad you don't know how fast to run to your stereo to turn the damn thing off.
So I got "Tonight" and gave it a spin. The only song I knew was the title-track, and ok, I always hated it. But the rest really isn't bad at all. To be quite frank, there's not one 100% awful track on it, with the exception of the cheap, tacky cover of The Beach Boys "God Only Knows". Bowie knows his way with covers, always picking either obscure songs to give them an improved re-working, or better-known songs and respectfully cover them. In case of this song, it's just a big riddle what Bowie's intention was. It's bad, and it's cheap. And yes, a mistake.
Once we get past "God Only Knows", there's a lot of nice stuff to be found on "Tonight". Opening-track "Loving The Alien" is an atmospheric and dramatic track, that doesn't have anything remotely bad about it. "Don't Look Down" is lite-reggae, which isn't all too exhilerating, but fits well into the context of the album and is enjoyable.

My first introduction to David Bowie was with this album and Let's Dance, so there's sentimental value for me in Tonight. I first saw him performing on HBO's Tina Turner concert in 1985, where he sang "Tonight" and "Let's Dance."
Well, naturally, the former song is present on this album, and yes, Tina has some vocal duty here as well.
The contrasting times of the Middle East are portrayed in "Loving The Alien," which is good in the single version, but here, it's in its full resplendent 7:09 glory. From the times of the Crusaders, who were promised a place in heaven for fighting the Saracens, to "Palestine being a modern problem," (it is something poignantly topical to this day), we see a Middle East ruled by "terror in a best laid plan."
"Don't Look Down" is a song with the aura of having a leisurely walk down the streets of uncrowded London, if that's at all possible. I've always liked his singing in a lower register, which he does for ballads, and his cover of the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" is a perfect example of that.
There's a little bit of everything here. The hard rock of "Neighborhood Threat," the 50's rock-and-roll of Leiber and Stoller's "I Keep Forgettin'," and the lazy calypso rhythms of "Tumble And Twirl." I can almost taste the akee and tamarind juice listening to this latter song.
The irresistible single "Blue Jean" is the highlight here, with Carlos Alomar's guitars never more effective.
Bowie is in a unique category of artists who keeps changing with each album..., and that's what makes him legendary...Who will like this album? Bowie fans, because their tastes are the union of those mutually exclusive sets. And I'm proud to say, I'm one of them.
