Hours was released in October 1999 and was Bowie's 23rd album. Rolling Stone said it “is as nakedly emotive a collection as anything in his iconic catalogue; it's a summary statement from the man who invented postmodern rock & roll”.
Hours was also the first complete album by a major artist available to download over the Internet, preceding the physical release by two weeks.
I like the album personally… what do you all think?
