I agree. An absolutely fantastic album that feels uniquely Bowie, but also unlike anything he's done before. The title track is masterfully weird, Lazarus is an excellent slow burner, Sue (Or In a Season of a Crime) is wonderfully chaotic and the closer is gorgeous. It's one of those albums where you want to flip the record over and start listening again as soon as it's finished.

I enjoyed this album, but can't help feeling a bit let down. Blackstar, both the song and video, presented it as an avant conceptual piece of some sort, but really the great majority of the album is pretty straight-forward and nowhere near as daring as the title track. I vastly prefer Sue and Tis a Pity in their earlier incarnations as well.

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

I also prefer the original version of 'Tis a Pity, but the reworked version of Sue is really good.

Yeah, I'm feeling myself being drawn back to this album far more than I was with The Next Day after my first couple of listens. I went back to individual tracks from TND, but the full experience wasn't as rewarding.

Not surprising coming from someone who thinks Animal Collective's "experimental" music is good 😝

Well I'm far from an apologist for Animal Collective. I appreciate some of their early ambient stuff like Spirit They've Gone, but something like Here Comes the Indian is unlistenable IMO.

I'm not an advocate of experimentation just for the sake of experimentation, but in Bowie's hands I was looking forward to the free-jazz dynamic that was in the earlier version of Sue. I thought you were digging those earlier versions as well?

I absolutely was. Yet to hear Blackstar so reserving judgement. Just having some fun with ya.

His official FB and Twitter pages have been hacked. Now 10 minutes and counting that they've had messages announcing his death up...

So sad. Fuck.

I will say, it's great and comforting to know that we have so much of his music to listen to and discover and rediscover.

And he has a brand new, final artistic statement. Something beautiful about that. He must have known he was close to the end and wanted a last word? I'm buying Blackstar first thing in the morning.

I've never really been a fan but this is pretty devastating. Especially so soon after his new album. I hadn't even realised he was battling cancer.
