>tfw started a bowie marathon this weekend in honor of his new album
/mu/ i have a question. First is, are you a blackstar? And, in that case, are you against that?
>david bowie and david attenborough will never rush to defend the realm on horseback
Sharing my playlists for Bowie binges:
Self-titled through to Diamond Dogs
Ziggy - Diamond dogs
Deram - Hunky Dory
Diamond-Dogs - Station to Station
Station - Lodger
Station - Scary Monsters
Low - Lodger
Scary Monsters - Never Let Me Down
Let's Dance - Black Tie
Black Tie - Hours
Heathen - The Next Day
Buddha - Earthling
he wasn't on the original cover of the man who sold the world
also, since he is a blackstar, he sorta is on the cover
Dollar Days > Girl Loves Me > 'Tis A Pity She Was A Whore > I Can't Give Everything Away > Sue > Blackstar > Lazarus
the singles may just be overplayed for me atm
>that sax solo on Dollar Days
best moment on the album imo, literally up there with the best of his 70s work musically, hiring this band was a true masterstroke. that and the piano in the chorus makes the song imo.
IT'S NOTHING TO ME
IT'S NOTHING TO SEE
best song on the album desu
am I the only one who thinks the vocal rhythm in the chorus reminds me of the title track from Black Tie White Noise?
I listened to this three times yesterday, and it got slightly better each time. I'm just really happy that this record turned out good. In a lot of ways, it feels like classic Bowie, but he's still trying new things at the same time.
I would agree with this, it feels as good as a lot of his older stuff. And like his older stuff, he's really trying out some new things, not doing anything he's really done before.
Listening to it for the first time
>That transition between Dollar Days and I Can't Give Everything Away
fuck yes, this is so good
I think the last 3 tracks are GOAT. The first four songs, while amazing, all sound like slightly different takes on the same general song. They're all great in their own right, but listening to them back-to-back-to-back-to-back gets a little tiring
opps let me rephrase this
I love subterraneans and I thought it was the perfect ending for Low. I haven't felt the same thing about the rest of his closings for his other albums though.
Girl Loves Me is definitely the most enjoyable track on the whole record
