Album Description:

 David Bowie's 1984 album Tonight was a commercial success, reaching number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States. However, it was not without its critics, who felt that the album was a disappointment after the success of his previous album, "Let's Dance"".

One of the main criticisms of Tonight was that it was too slick and polished. The album was produced by Nile Rodgers, who had also produced Let's Dance, and the sound of Tonight is very similar to that of Let's Dance. However, some critics felt that the album lacked the edge and experimentation of Let's Dance.

Another criticism of Tonight was that the songs were not as strong as those on Let's Dance. The album features a number of covers, including "Loving the Alien" (originally by T. Rex) and "Tonight" (originally by Iggy Pop). While these covers are well-performed, they do not add anything new to the original songs.

Despite the criticisms, Tonight is still an enjoyable album. The songs are catchy and the production is slick. However, it is not without its flaws, and it is clear that Bowie was not at his creative peak when he made this album.

The 12" Vinyl LP ALbum of Tonight was pressed using DMM, or Direct Metal Mastering. This is a process that uses a laser to cut the master disc directly from the original analog recording. This results in a much higher quality sound than traditional vinyl pressings, which are made from metal stampers that are created from the original analog recording.

The DMM pressing of Tonight is a must-have for any fan of David Bowie or vinyl enthusiasts. The sound quality is simply superb, and it is a great way to experience this classic album.
