"Aladdin Sane" was the sixth album released by Bowie back in 1973. There was a high expectation from fans and critics after his previous album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray called the album oddly unsatisfying, while Bowie encyclopedist Nicholas Pegg describes it as one of the most urgent, compelling and essential of his releases. The Rolling Stone review by Ben Gerson pronounced it "less manic then The Man Who Sold The World, and less intimate than Hunky Dory, with none of it's self-doubt".
There were four single releases from the album, the most predominent being "The Jean Genie" in 1972 preceeding the albums completion and release date. "Drive-In Saturday" "Time" and "Let's Spend the Night Together" were all released in 1973.
