It would be really mean of me to listen to this while Travis is in class....

The title track is quite good.

I'm not gonna be able to listen to this until tomorrow.

I guess they weren't fucking with us, looks like the white block on Heroes abomination is the actual cover.

Am I the only one who likes that cover? It's quite literally self-effacing, which is a quality I tend to admire.

I love the concept.

Not crazy about the execution.

I love the album...I'm already putting it in my 5 favorite albums of his.

1. Ziggy Stardust
2. Scary Monsters
3. Aladdin Sane
4. The Next Day
5. Hunky Dory

I don't mind the cover, I just think for such a great album something fresh might have fit well, but it doesn't matter too much.

"(You Will) Set The World on Fire" may be my favorite from the album for now. So many good ones to choose from though.

That's about how I feel about it. Although I do like the simple line through "Heroes."

Yeah, I do wonder if that will be the reaction at large. I thought NLOTH was one of U2's very best when I first heard it. I don't think I've listened to it since 2010.

I'll enjoy it as much as I possibly can right now and try to do the same tomorrow and all days thereafter. Really pointless trying to temper it, just stick an IMO on there and you're good.

BEST ALBUM SINCE SCARY MONSTERS!!!!!

 
Only because I wouldn't give Let's Dance, Outside, Heathen or Reality higher than a 7 and haven't heard any others
 
But Next Day is still really good/fun, probably an 8/10 for me

Outside and Heathen are both better than The Next Day AND Scary Monsters.

Scary Monsters is terribly uneven as an album. The singles are brilliant (Ashes to Ashes is a top 3 Bowie song for me), but the rest kinda sucks, specially side two, IMO.

Yea, i know it's very uncool to say this, but i prefer Let's Dance over Scary Monsters. The singles are brilliant and the rest is very good. The only weak songs are Ricochet and Shake It.

I really didn't like Outside. It meant well, but it's far too long and disjointed and a bunch of the tracks go nowhere. I like Heathen a lot but isn't as vibrant or refreshing as Scary Monsters or Next Day. Let's Dance and Reality's flaws are well documented, but I enjoy both well enough.

I definitely get an eighties vibe coming from this record...
