Second and final studio album by the supergroup Tin Machine (1991)

Tin Machine — David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels, Tony Sales and Hunt Sales

Originally released by Victory Music in 1991, Tin Machine II is the second and final studio album by Tin Machine. After this album and the supporting tour, frontman David Bowie resumed his solo career.

Tin Machine II's reputation has only increased over the years. Uncut magazine placed the album on their list of 50 Great Lost Albums (their list of great albums not currently available for purchase), calling the album "extraordinary."

As with all Bowie albums, there are plenty of strong tracks here to make this a must-have. Opening track "Baby Universal" is pure Bowie. He re-recorded this track in 1996 for his 1997 album Earthling, but the track was not released on the album. It was eventually released in 2020 on the Bowie EP Is it Any Wonder?.

The first single "You Belong in Rock n' Roll" was released ahead of the album and peaked at No. 33 in the U.K.. The second single "Baby Universal" achieved success on the Modern Rock chart in the U.S.A., where it reached No. 21, and the third and last single "One Shot" became an even bigger hit, reaching No. 3.

The album's cover (which was censored for its original USA release!) was created by Edward Bell, who had previously worked with Bowie in making artwork for Scary Monsters. The MOV cover features a spot varnish finish.

Music On Vinyl gives Tin Machine II its first vinyl re-release since the 1991 original, and it's pressed on colored vinyl for the very first time. The initial pressing is a limited edition of 5,000 individually numbered copies on silver colored vinyl.
