Mini David Bowie Survivor: ★ era, round 1, take deux

Well had I known they'd put the other three songs on an EP I wouldn't have started this a few days ago!

Anyway those songs are now all on the No Plan EP, which is available everywhere, so no excuses for not having heard them.

Vote for your least favourite, tell us why, I'll leave this open for three days so people can get acquainted with the tracks

I assume the vote for Blackstar was GAF trolling.

No Plan? More like No Pay!





 
 
Seriously though, the guy's dead and his family certainly doesn't need the money...

It's on all the streaming services, so you can hear it without paying.

Listened to the new songs today.

None of them blew me away, but I can say I liked them all more than Sue (or In A Season Of Crime).

Wow really? What's your issue with Sue?

I quite like No Plan. Don't think I'd take any of them over any of the tracks from the album proper though.

I think Sue sounds like a pale imitation of Outside/Earthling's territory.

Just doesn't do anything for me.

Outside is definitely this record's spiritual cousin. Such a shame that we'll never see what would have come of Eno & Bowie revisiting that album.

Agreed, that would have been something.

Voting for Killing a Little Time.

I thought that was the best of the new EP songs.

I agree. I love just how sinister it sounds during the verses.

Voted for "No Plan." It's the only meh track here to me.

I'm also going to that Celebrating David Bowie tribute show tonight in NYC, featuring much of his studio/live band musicians from throughout his career. Plus special guests, so we'll see who turns up.

I prefer the version of Sue on the Nothing Has Changed compilation, but it's still great on Blackstar itself. Also suggests his health battles as far back as 2014: "Sue, the clinic called; the x-ray's fine."
