Black Tie White Noise was the beginning of David Bowie 's return from the wilderness of post- Let's Dancethe first indication that he was regaining his creative spark. To say as much suggests that it's a bit of a lost classic, when it's rather a sporadically intriguing transitional album, finding Bowie balancing the commercial dance-rock of Let's Dance with artier inclinations from his Berlin period, all the while trying to draw on the past by working with former Spider from Mars guitarist Mick Ronsoncollaborating with Let's Dance producer Nile Rodgersand even covering inspiration Scott Walker 's "Nite Flights.
Black Tie White Noise displays greater musical ambition than any record he'd made since Scary Monstersand while much of the record feels like unrealized ideas, there are songs where it all gels, like on the paranoid jumble of "Jump They Acropolis - Anne Clark - Unstill Life the aforementioned covers, the impassioned "You've Been Around," and the self-consciously smooth title track.
Moments like these are the first in a long time to feel classically Bowieand they point ahead toward the more interesting records he made in the second half of the '90s, but they are encased in a production that not only sounds dated years later, but sounded dated upon its release in the spring oftwo years into the thick of alternative rock.
At that point, the club-centric, mainstream-courting Black Tie White Noise seemed as an anachronism during the guitar-heavy grunge-n-industrial glory days -- something Bowie The Wedding - David Bowie - Black Tie White Noise acknowledged with its successor, Outsidewhich was every bit as gloomy as a Nine Inch Nails The Wedding - David Bowie - Black Tie White Noise -- but separated from the vagaries of fashion, it's an interesting first step in Bowie 's creative revival.
