A nice attempt at the artwork (interesting Roman Numeral on the Disc for 4), trying to use themes from Pinups but the quality of the original pictures used is far from ideal.  The subtitle is 'Sway'.  Typical of this series, there are mistakes as Don't Look Down has been pressed twice as tracks 4 & 9.  The sound quality is very good but I share Bassman's sentiment and hope that this is the last in the series.  All in all a forgettable recording - for the completists among us!

I am over-critical because it is a pirate recording as well as a bootleg.  To add further insult to injury, it is a cheap CDR designed to dupe the unsuspecting Bowie collector into thinking they have a silver CD.  This practise is particularly distasteful.
