Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/28/99, p.100
4 stars out of 5 - "...as nakedly emotive a collection as anything in his iconic catalog; it's a summary statement from the man who invented postmodern rock & roll....HOURS is a testament to the serenity that comes with legend status, maturity and endurance..."
Spin - 11/99, p.181
6 out of 10 - "...His latest stab at relevance works best when it most resembles those simple anguished moments ['The Man Who Sold The World' and 'Andy Warhol']....[HOURS] attempts to reclaim the eternally hip early-'70s Bowie..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/15/99, pp.77-8
"...a concept album about what a drag it is getting old....the 52-year-old [Bowie] dares to feel tired, or maybe just really wistful, in this regret-filled song cycle....Given that the theme is maturity's flickering light, the pacing is probably deliberate..." - Rating: B-
Q - 1/00, p.83
Included in Q Magazine's "50 Best Albums of 1999."
Q - 11/99, p.120
4 stars out of 5 - "...the Dame's latest LP is...just as good as they used to be....Bowie sounds influenced by nobody except himself, and he couldn't have picked a better role model."
Uncut - p.143
3 stars out of 5 - "[S]teeped in Low-like melancholia."
Alternative Press - 12/99, p.88
4 out of 5 - "...a masterpiece....Solidly built around songs...and aware that songs need some depth as well....HOURS finds Bowie returning to basics he never should have left behind....it could be his second childhood."
CMJ - 10/18/99, p.22
"...his most straight-forward rock album in nearly two decades. Giving the post-glam wankers who've cribbed his classic sound a run for their money....he continues to pull off fresh, unexpected things as only a chameleon of his caliber could."
Mojo (Publisher) - 1/00, p.30
Ranked #30 in Mojo Magazine's "Best of 1999"
Mojo (Publisher) - 11/99, pp.98-9
"...crowns a trilogy [1.OUTSIDE & 2.EARTHLING] that represents sigificantly more than a mere coda to a once-unimpeachable career....[HOURS] possesses a melancholy that runs deeper than mere pre-Millennium tension and one or two rueful meditations on his life..."
