The first 4 songs aren't terrible, but the next 6 sure are

This album deserves another look and was one of Bowie’s most successful. This continues in the same vein of Let’s Dance and Tonight. The production needs some getting used to but it was the 80s. If you can look past that there are some great tunes such as Time Will Crawl, Never Let Me Down and Shining Star.

Not quite as bad as you might expect, but certainly not very good either. Not as good as, tonight, and it's clear at this period in his career he's creatively burnt out. All in all, never let me down, is probably around about average and just above bearable.

Released during a low period in Mr. Bowies life. This record is not his worst but it comes pretty close.

It's pretty bad. Sounds plastic. Much below Bowie's usual standards.

I found it surprisingly enjoyable for an album that almost no-one seems to like very much.

This is not the worst Bowie studio album that "award" goes to the album "Tonight". There are 6 good tracks on N.L.M.D. the first 4 tracks on the album plus Glass Spider and Shinning Star it is not a great album but not as bad as people think.

You'd hope Tonight's lack of quality would have been a fluke, since it was obviously rushed out, but this album is even worse.
