Com sofisticação inata Bowie se aproxima do pop vigente.

Echoing what everyone else is saying. 3 amazing tracks followed by some of the weakest output of Bowie's career.

As an album, this doesn't work too well. The only songs that matters are the three first ones, everyone agrees with that. These were certainly spetacular singles, but as an album, no.

From Brandon8
Yes it’s 80s dance/pop there’s a reason this was his biggest hit at the time. It’s known for the first 3 songs but this is enjoyable throughout and Cat People is an awesome track.

Ho sempre ritenuto "Let's dance" il primo dei dischi di Bowie a non essere sorretto dal suo genio bensì "solamente" dal suo talento, dalla sua astuzia, dal suo sapere annusare l'aria. Mentre la maggior parte dei suoi album precedenti era carica di contenuti, "Let's dance" si presentava come una, pur bellissima, scatola vuota; un disco dance fin dal titolo, visto tra l'altro che i competitori o le fonti di ispirazione di Bowie nel 1983 non erano più gli Stones o il glam, il funky o i Kraftwerk, Barrett, Berlino o la new wave, bensì Michael Jackson… Vorremmo comunque averli sempre dei prodotti musicali di puro consumo come questo che contengano canzoni come la title track, "Modern love" o "China girl": negli anni successivi nemmeno Bowie sarebbe stato in grado di fornirli…

80's synth fan - not so much a Bowie fan and this is his album of that era. More than just the singles in my view, and a very pleasant surprise.

From Onater
As I made my way through Bowie's discography, I dreaded this: his infamous dance-pop album. I was surprised to find it really wasn't all too bad, of course nowhere near his 70s stuff, but still pretty decent. Modern Love is great, and the title track, which I had always hated as a single, is much improved by the full 7 minute version.
