Let’s Dance may have had a ground-breaking sound and a popularity that Bowie clearly ached for, but it’s often a mundane album, as songs like Ricochet and Shake It mark time until a single turns up. (It’s possibly significant that one of the best songs here is Criminal World, a cover of a song by obscure Bowie clones Metro). But when Bowie growled, on another of the album’s excellent singles Modern Love, "I know when to go out, And when to stay in, And get things done," he wasn’t kidding. Let’s Dance was literally the template for 80s Bowie – blonde, suited and smiling

While I've always felt that the album's title track isn't nearly as great as its commercial reputation suggests, the follow-up singles 'China Girl' and 'Modern Love' are two of David Bowie's finest ever pop confections. Perhaps the reason is that underneath the polished Nile Rodgers production (by the way, don't blame Rodgers if you don't happen to like the sound of Let's Dance, he did EXACTLY what Bowie had asked him to do at the start of the project), both tracks had heartfelt credibility behind them; 'China Girl' had in fact been written for Iggy Pop's The Idiot six years earlier and was partly included here to help Iggy out of a financial slump, while 'Modern Love' was intended as an affectionate homage to one of the original rock and roll icons, Little Richard. Yes, the material here is MTV friendly and yes, it's nowhere near as bold or artistic a statement as Bowie's seminal '70s work. But in an era of mechanical radio and video friendly hit chasers, Bowie was always going to bring a greater sense of taste and art to the occasion than anybody else.
While not nearly one of Bowie's more brilliant works, but still Let's Dance is overall a pretty strong album. Songs like "Modern Love", "Let's Dance", and "Shake It" emphasize the album's dance rock feel while tracks like "Without You", and "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" provide diversity, keeping it from becoming a total post-disco dance party.
Perhaps it's appropriately perverse that Bowie's biggest selling album (by far) is so often under-rated, or at least under-appreciated. In my view it's lazy to simply knock it, as many do, for being too commercial. Just consider the brief - I'm a cult star, but now I want to have mainstream hits. And the result was this chart conquering monster?? Bloody hell - if it was that easy, let's tally how many others have been able to do it...er...Yes, the 80's production sheen shows its age it a bit and side one wallops side two, but hey, to make up for it you get SRV in just the right doses to not be too much of a good thing. I do believe if Tonight and Never Let Me Down hadn't happened, this album would be cast in a different light. Taken on its own merits, it's a corker!
Let's Dance really introduced the MTV generation to David Bowie, and in turn David Bowie introduced himself to the MTV generation. The music is mainstream, really a display of the state of the industry at the time. Disco without fully being disco, dance without fully being dance, more funky than rock and roll. Let's Dance is noncommittal to one particular genre, and maybe that's its strength, and it helps when you have an artist like Bowie to dabble in several styles that he is especially proficient in. Key tracks are the obvious ones, Modern Love, China Girl, and the title track, but Ricochet is a solid song as well.
just one girl
What you might want more than a record that has 3 superb hits and the pop side of the author is revealed with the introduction of the funk CHIC with his mentor Nile Rodgers producing a work that was in the charts of successes worldwide
This could have been Bowie's commercial masterpiece, but as is there are 4 good fun songs & 4 just simply loud songs. The 3 hits are front-loaded for quite a wallop of a listen but then the next 4 songs are just loud & dull. The closing track is the only other catchy fun song, sounds like a Culture Club song. Had he added Blue Jean from his next lp & Under Pressure & his remake of Dancing in the Street, this could have been his blockbuster. As such this is still his best seller although not as great as it could have been.
What ever happened to that hired gun guitar slinger Bowie brought in for this album? Kid by the name of Stevie Ray Vaughan?
Some art is neglected at its creation and grows into a classic with time. Other starts out as a sensation but does not age well, Let's Dance falls squarely in the latter category. The more pop and funkier persona was enthusiastically received when released. It spawned three huge hits, with videos that helped define the then still new MTV, and a huge tour. But now it sounds blah and dated. Modern Love has held up best of the hits. Truth told I never thought that China Girl was much good; the Iggy version is far superior. Lets Dance was sensation in 1983 but is certainly not up to the level of Bowie's real classics. The album version of Cat People is not nearly as good as the movie version and suggests that if Bowie wanted a change from what he had been doing he would have been better off working with Giorgio Moroder rather than Nile Rodgers. The rest of the album was and still is pretty much all filler.
