Tin Machine was a hard rock band formed in 1988, famous for being fronted by singer David Bowie.

The group recorded two studio albums and a live album before dissolving in 1992, when Bowie returned to his solo career. The group was generally reviled, often receiving scathing critical reviews.

David Bowie’s Never Let Me Down album (already a move into slightly "harder" rock territory) and subsequent "Glass Spider Tour"…

  • Ha! Weak by Bowie's standards?? At the time, this band project woke Bowie up from his self-confessed "creative slumber." As he admits, he'd been churning out soulless pop for the "Pepsi generation" (TV ads and all) in a perpetual coked up haze before doing these albums with his old friends, the Sales brothers (from Lust For Life album) and innovative guitarist, Reeves Gabrels. Gabrels played a vital role in Bowie's 2nd lease on artistic life, staying on well beyond the Tin Machine albums. He had confronted Bowie personally about his increasingly bland output in the 80s, and Bowie listened. Also, the live shows were a breath of fresh air, with a stripped down but intense energy amplified by the small venues-- not the monstrous big hair spectacle of his 80s stadium-pop kitsch.
  • Weak? This must be one of the most underrated bands ever. They have many great tracks, and some of David Bowie's best vocal performances of his entire career (don't get me wrong, I love his voice). What's so bad about them? The lyrics? The playing? The production? I don't find anything wrong, I think people hate it because everyone else does it.
