Those last two tracks are amazing. Sax lingers in the back of the whole album, then into the forefront. Love it.

So when is he getting knighted?

/mu/ i have a question. First is, are you a blackstar? And, in that case, are you against that?
>>
>>61600650
Oh hey someone else liked the album. Cool. Suggestion though - try forming your own opinion before rushing to an outside source. Builds character and all that.

>>61600656
He turned it down before. Doubtful he ever will.

waiting for fartano to review it
I already know the album for me is a straight 8/10 but I want to see his opinion on it.

What albums after Lodger are 100% essential?
>>
>>61602119
Scary Monsters
Let's Dance
Outside
Earthling (maybe)
Heathen
Blackstar
>>
>>61602119
Heathen

Earthling
Blackstar
The Next Day

I just noticed this is his first album where he isn't on the cover.

Except for maybe Lodger but those could well be his feet.

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.
>>
>>61604047
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?
>>
>>61604114
i'd go Lazarus > Dollar Days > Girl Loves Me > Blackstar > I Can't Give Everything Away > 'Tis A Pity > Sue
all good shit though
>>
Black Star > Girl Loves Me > Lazarus > 'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore > ICGEA > Sue > Dollar Days

Think he will ever tour or play live again?

Though Reality itself is only 'good', Bring Me The Disco King is the best closer he's ever done, hands-down. It could have easily fit into Blackstar, actually.
>>
>>61600397
Anyone else hear the HEAVY Death Grips influence on Sue after he says "Goodbye"?
>>
>>61604114
I would agree with you but Lazarus was just beautiful. It's seriously taking me back on making Girl Loves Me the best track of the album.
>>
>>61605397
Oh yeah I didn't think if that. That and Girl Loves me.
>>
WHERE
>>
>>61604261
>>61600650
Not surprised
There isn't really any other albums that can compete with Blackstar this month.
>>
Anyone know who the drummer is on this album? He's fucking excellent, whoever he is.
>>
>>61605632
My boy, Mark Guiliana.
>>
>>61604114
>>61604173
>>61604192

here's mine:

Sue > Lazarus > Blackstar > Girl Loves Me > Dollar Days > I Can't Give Everything Away > 'Tis A Pity She Was a Whore
>>
Girl Loves Me is bloody amazing. Bowie more or less rapping in a fictional language and that groove, my god. I just didn't see it coming.
>>
>>61605761
It's slang gays, actors and prostitutes used to identify each other in 1950's Britain.
>>
>>61600397
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.
>>
>>61604247
I wouldn't be surprised if he randomly comes out and says he will. More than anything though, I don't think so.
>>
>>61605832
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.
>>
>>61605093
This is a pretty tough decision between Fame and Rock N' Roll Suicide

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

Lazarus is best track imo
>>
>>61605093
there is something about subterraneans that I love and just couldn't feel on the rest of his discography.
>>
>>61606943
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.
>>
Are you tagging this as "Blackstar" or as ""?
>>
>>61607013
>>61606943
I always thought that "Heroes" and Low had the best closers of any of his discography.

>>61605093
