I'm not even sure what to say at this point. He owes us nothing and we're still getting stuff as amazing as this. I'm blown away.

This album is gonna be fucking baller. Gonna kick the shit out of The Next Day, which I really liked. But it's gonna make that album seem like a generic rock album.

Blackstar is like he walked through David Bowie Is and was like "boooooooooooorrrrrring, let's try something new and fun". Combine it with his reclusivity and it's all just genius. The dark horns are a great touch and the parts where he's singing unassisted are quite beautiful, I had a flashback to Cygnet Committee for some reason. It's nice to hear his vocals in the mix, too, they were too buried on The Next Day.

As for the film clip, well. No words.

And now Heart's Filthy Lesson is playing and I'm reminded that I fucking loved Outside when we did the Survivor and I need to go out and buy it.

I really hope the rest of the album stays in the vein of Black Star the song. Those horns need to make other appearances.

That's what I'm expecting as well after having listened to the new title-track. It's easy for Bowie to please me because I like most of what he does a lot. But I'm blown away by this song and by the video which is genius too - been watching a lot.

I'd like to see Bowie use a little less of the chanting vocal thing (?) he does for a good portion of that song. I know he doesn't have a ton left in the tank vocally at this age, but his vocal approach on a lot of his newer material hasn't done him any favors.

This is almost an understatement.

I heard Station to Station for the first time today.

Fuck, I think I'm into Bowie now.

Yeah. That album is a masterpiece. If it wasn't so cold I'd call it his best.

Guess I'm a cold motherfucker, because I definitely think that's his best.

Station to Station rules. The austerity is a big part of its appeal.

One of the strongest indicators of Bowie's greatness is any of a half dozen albums could be his best.

I've said the same thing about your posting style.

Blackstar challenged and intrigued me. Not sure I liked it, or that I'll ever listen to it again outside of when I give the album a spin, but I love what Bowie represents.

Wow, Black Star really is something. I'm still not sure how I feel about Bowie. I always think I should love his music but there isn't one album of his that has grabbed me emotionally so far. I always enjoy them on a more cerebral level.

Station to Station is also my favorite of the ones I've heard.
