David Bowie: The next thread and the next thread...

I'm thrilled to hear this in proper quality in just a few hours. First impression is that this is my favorite Bowie album since Heroes, but we'll see how it holds up.

Early reviews have been great. 8.5 BNM from P4k, nearly a full point higher than The Next Day, which seems fair to me.

Great album! Interesting that 'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore and Sue (Or in a Season of Crime) were reworked.

The number of artists whose new albums I feel compelled to buy physical copies of has dwindled to but a trickle.

Bowie is one of them.

been away for ages, log in to give my thoughts about new album by God, & people prattling on about coldplay, beyonce & rihanna, what the fuck is going on here, on a BOWIE thread, how in fucks name can people mention those said karaoke singers & U2 tribute bands on a fucking BOWIE thread!!!!! rant over,

Anyway, Blackstar, wow! well worth the wait, again, from the LEGEND that is DAVID BOWIE, the title track is the particular jewel in this crown, can't say I was too keen on Sue, from the Nothing Has Changed best of, much prefer this re-working, Lazarus,Dollar Days, & I Can't Give...are deliciously laid back slabs of BOWIE at his coolest, Girl Loves Me, as Samuel L. Jackson would say, "you kiss your mother with that mouth!" can't see it being released as a single, but catchy as hell, if I have any gripes about this album, there's not enough of it, should have saved Atomica, & The Informer from The Next Day Extra to put on here, but all in all, another great album from Bowie, 4.7/5

The first part of this post will make absolutely no sense whatsoever, unless you read the U2 tribute band thread, by mistake, as I did

It sounds like a mix between Peter Gabriel and TV on The Radio (and Bowie).
I had great difficulty figuring out what was going on though.
Maybe should try again with lyrics in front of me.

I have listened to it but I do not want to comment until I have had several listens.

I really admire what he's done here. A much less "safe" album than The Next Day, that's for sure, and has none of that album's filler. Yes, another couple songs would be nice, but I'm not retroactively complaining about Station to Station.

Highlights for me are the title track, my title track, Dollar Days, and the swoon-worthy finale. But there's nothing subpar here at all.

Having said all that, I can't call this "best Bowie album since (insert classic title)", because I still prefer Heathen, for now at least. That album suffers a bit from too many covers but those 9 originals are damn strong, and the opener and closer are phenomenal. It wasn't a safe album either, despite having a couple nods to the past like Slow Burn and Slip Away.
