On the basis of Tonight, it appears that David Bowie didn't have a clear idea of how to follow the platinum success of Let's Dance. Instead of breaking away from the stylized pop of "Let's Dance" and "China Girl," Bowie delivers another record in the same style. Apart from the single "Blue Jean," none of the material equals the songs on Let's Dance, but that doesn't stop Tonight from becoming another platinum success. Nevertheless, the record stands as one of the weakest albums Bowie ever recorded.
