T he song "Pretty Pink Rose" was one of two tracks from Young Lions that featured David Bowie. (Bowie, you may remember, employed Belew briefly beginning with the tour documented on Stage.) This is a better song than the cluttered noise of Tin Machine, but not by a whole lot. Bowie's cut-and-paste lyrics had become something of a liability as well. Case in point: "She's the poor man's gold she's the anarchist crucible / flying in the face of the despot cannible." (I guess a "cannible" is a cannibal who takes small bites.) The video didn't clear things up any, just some gothic posing if I remember. Better by far is "Oh Daddy," and the pleasure that would come from gaining otherwise unreleased material like "Neptune Pool" and "Shoe Salesman."
