Here is a review of "Hours..." from the October 11th People Magazine.
David Bowie (Virgin)
During his 52 years, Bowie has been known to take a misstep or two. He once starred in a mime troupe, and his 1987 Glass Spiders tour was a tangled mess. So it seems highly probable, then, that this techno-tinged album would turn out to be another sad attempt by an aging rocker to be trendy.
Surprise: Rather than dabbling in the esoteric of pop's outer electronic edge, Bowie surfs it with aplomb.
