On the basis of Tonight
, it appears that David Bowie
didn't have a clear idea of how to follow the platinum success of Let's Dance
. Instead of breaking away from the stylized pop of "Let's Dance" and "China Girl," Bowie
delivers another record in the same style. Apart from the single "Blue Jean," none of the material equals the songs on Let's Dance
, but it's appealing pop-soul and dance stylings helped make Tonight
another platinum success.
