Rolling Stone (10/19/95, p.148) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a potent collection of avant-garage riffs and rhythm notions....tense Euro-dance propulsion....layered circular-guitar locomotion....a ferociously distorted whirl of slaughterhouse jive..."
Spin (10/95, pp.116-117) - 6 - Reasonably Good - "...his most substantial album since SCARY MONSTERS....There are few pop hooks and the dissonant, well-played arrangements often recall recent King Crimson..."
Q (10/95, p.113) - 3 Stars - Good - "...A bold and fascinating trip to offer his devoted listenership. OUTSIDE is undoubtedly Bowie's most dense and uncompromising work since SCARY MONSTERS...and, as suggested on BLACK TIE WHITE NOISE it's clear that he is once again imaginatively sparking with life..."
Alternative Press (10/95, p.63) - "...this is the best Bowie album in years....OUTSIDER shows Bowie can still let loose....Bowie...has not sounded this musical since SCARY MONSTERS..."
Melody Maker (10/14/95, p.39) - "...a clattering, funk-based stream-of-consciousness sound collage....this 48-year-old man is closer to the futurist edge than most of the 18-year-old babies we regularly canonise in these pages..."
NME (Magazine) (9/23/95, p.46) - 7 (out of 10) - "...no, it isn't the hoped-for addition to the Eno/Bowie LOW, HEROES, LODGER avant pop run. It is more the rock opera of DIAMOND DOGS minus the glam, plus the F-f-f-fashion funk and the S&M Gilbert & Sullivans. A bit sicko, a bit Dickensian, a bit future-past..."
