I have very fond memories of purchasing this on release as a teenager with limited funds and not much of a cd collection. Consequently played it to death and got enthusiastically stuck into the sleeve notes. One of the highlights is how Strangers When We Meet is tacked on the end as a little reminder that straight down the line romantic pop songs could be banged out as and when deemed necessary.

Would have absolutely loved to see the teased follow up but it wasn’t to be. Still blessed to have everything Bowie left to the world.

There is a cool semi-cover of one of the songs in the film Starship Troopers that came out a couple of years later, I considered myself extremely clever to pick up the reference in the cinema surrounded by my oblivious friends.
