Of course that would be giving too much credit to my dreams, whatever, this was absolutely beautiful i don't even know what to say. Yeah it's strange alright except for that it's Bowie, who is part genius or mad scientist, or perhaps just gifted beyond my comprehension.

I feel almost humbled for having watched this. The clouds passing over my head don't even look the same anymore, the wind blowing through the trees has new urgency for me, even if the key has broke off in the lock, it's not necessary to kick the door in because somehow there is a window into the otherside if you know where to look. Fuck....

Well, I said it's a masterpiece. It's certainly in the conversation, but I've never been able to name a fav Bowie album. Like iYup said there's half a dozen in the conversation. It's just that I personally have never been able to connect with it emotionally, aside from Word on a Wing, which is absolutely beautiful and a hugely, hugely underrated song.

One of the strongest indicators of Bowie's greatness is any of a half dozen albums could be his best.
Why do you say austerity there? Like you mean lean, cold musically?

Station to Station is also my favorite of the ones I've heard.
What have you heard out of interest?

Also, there have not been many dance songs before or since that are as fucking banging the final four minutes of Station to Station.

Yeah, you can say that. The title track especially reminds me of the album cover: leering into a cold city night.

I feel like his late seventies stuff is what I'm most likely to want to listen to. He may have invented glam rock (almost singlehandedly) but that earlier stuff isn't really my thing. Then there's the eighties, which isn't all bad (I have a guilty love for Let's Dance), and then there's a bit of a gap.

Oh yeah, it's a pretty appealing danceable record all round, not just the lead single. I dunno how it's regarded by Bowie afficiandos though; probably not that well. I like it for what it is.

It has a fucking atrocious cover.

But it's still not his worst.

Obviously I disagree, but I understand this at least because it's how I feel about Pink Floyd.

David Bowie's New Album Features James Murphy, Was Inspired by Kendrick Lamar | News | Pitchfork


Can someone make sure Cobbler didn't auto-erotic asphyxiate himself like his fellow countryman?

Holy fuck I didn't actually expect Bowie to drop a top 5 album in 2016, but it wouldn't surprise me at this point.
