CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork
After a string of really fucking bad albums, David proves that life doesn't really begin at fifty but it's a good time to make it real again.

Rolling Stone

On Earthling, Bowie lets the songs tell the story ... the tracks on Earthling are linked only by the power of the turbocharged guitars, the energy and intensity of the skittering drum-and-bass rhythms, the spiritual-technological tug of war in the lyrics and Bowie's signature baritone croon.

NME

In spite of the ridiculousness, the pretension and the overwhelming essence du naff that prevails over it, 'Earthling' is actually - though it galls to admit it - not a bad record. Perhaps it's Bowie's stunningly resilient inability to see his own preposterousness that makes it all so entertainingly funny.

O instrumental barulhento deixa o álbum enjoativo, para ouvir uma vez ou outra é bem legal.

Pretty good album. Not his best, but still has some wonderful songs with some powerful instrument sections within. So enigmatic.
