Background: Aladdin Sane was the sixth studio LP by David Bowie, released in 1973. The album reached #1 in the UK and #17 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the single “Jean Jeanie.”
Ziggy Stardust wrote the blueprint for David Bowie’s hard-rocking glam, and Aladdin Sane essentially follows the pattern, for both better and worse. A lighter affair than Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane is actually a stranger album than its predecessor, buoyed by bizarre lounge-jazz flourishes from pianist Mick Garson and a handful of winding, vaguely experimental songs.
