When did you realise that this is the first Bowie cover without him on it?
I always thought this was a girl...

This is a fucking insane album.
It's not Bowie being a character : it's Bowie looking at both the past and the present. The album packaging references the berlin trilogy, and the mouth organ sample at the beginning of "I Can't Give Everything away" is taken from "A New Career In A New Town". Also, the lyrics are talking about being old. But they are also about what it is to be David Bowie. it's Bowie looking at what he is now : the pop music itself. He doesn't care about anything. He glues industrial drums to powerful guitars, upbeat bass with weird saxophones. He is a legend and can do whetever he wants.
It's a good version of Black Tie White Noise mixed with the berlin trilogy and the production/mixing/songwwriting of the 90s/2000s. It's one of his best albums.
superior cover coming through to be quite honest family
Yeah it's essentially a mix of Outside, BoS and BTWN.
The Next Day was him looking backwards, every song on there could have been on a previous album. I wouldn't be surprised if most weren't newly written, Born in a UFO was written for Lodger originally. With Blackstar, there's hints of the past but it's feels fresh.
Sue has lots of Earthling vibes, and the synth sounds in I Can't Give Everything Away are reminiscent of Hours...
Seems Bowie looked back at a lot of stuff and used it to push himself in this new direction and as a Bowie fan you can really engorge yourself when you listen to it.
crazyaga has listened to way more music than ever will and doesn't upload needledrop memes to his facebook
you just listen to oasis and whatever other album to listen to that isnt oasis you give it 5 stars on rym to even things out a bit
just finished listening to it for the first time and gotta say i'm pretty impressed
this is what i wanted the next day to be. probably the best thing he's done since scary monsters
