Listened to it, immediately it struck me that it sounded like it was made by a man on his way into the abyss. I think the music videos make this apparent, as well. Even his death was performance art. I hope this move cements him as one of the greatest performers of all time.

He had terminal cancer, he obviously knew he was dying. I doubt he expected it to happen two days after he released the album.

Yesterday.

I fucking feel the same as you guys.

Yesterday i was at the mall with my mom, we passed by the music store showing her his new album, i was like ''that's nice it got released it the day of his birthday, it should be good i will listen to it etc...''

And two days later he's dead.
>>
Certainly one of the elite, I've been listening to it every day for a week now. This is some of the hardest music-related news I think I've ever had to live through. He's the reason I give a shit about music, and decided to go into it myself. I'm listening to Blackstar again right now, crying every couple minutes. I know this is lame, and I'm probably gonna get memed, but damn, it's all so much.

Yesterday, I listened to the album, and was thinking about how when David Bowie died, people were gonna go crazy and music wouldn't feel the same, and this entire thought came from me realizing that Blackstar kind of felt like a goodbye.

Guys, he was battling cancer while making this album. If there is ever any doubt as to whether David actually gave a shit about his fans, let this totally demolish any doubt.

And also, David kept out of the spotlight these last few years because he wanted us to remember her at his strongest, not his weakest.

listened very early friday morning but remember little of the album. think i liked it tho but title track was best track as far as i can recall (i had busy friday)

I hate myself, I never really rated that track until this morning. I thought it was okay before but didn't relisten much. Actually giving it a proper shake, I realised it's gorgeous, but it's too late now.

>>
>>61648112
I was postponing it as Ive been listening and relistening station to station
Hunky dory lately I had only heard the title track Blackstar like ten times.

Now that this happened and I see what the album is about maybe it was a good decision to postpone it. Maybe this is the moment it had to be listened to.
>>
>>61648112
Of course I did. I have been a Bowie fan since the age of 10, which was in 2000. That's nothing compared to my dad who first saw him live in 1976 (and has been a fan since 1971), but still this news was really shocking for me too.

Yeah I feel like if you're on /mu/ you probably already have came to this album a few time's. What's everyone's favorite songs?

Listened to it the day it leaked, and I only recently started getting into Bowie. Just got home about 10 minutes ago and saw the news.

I listened to the entirety of Blackstar in the bathtub right before it was announced.

Great album.

After it ended, I drifted into an odd sleep, was very emotionless and numb. I don't know how long it was, anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour+ laying there in the tub comfortably numb. Strange how the universe has its own ways of telling you anything.

Knowing how much energy and life chemo takes out of ya, I find it pretty fucking amazing he managed to complete the album having fought against it for 18 months.
But then again maybe he didn't go through chemo, and just embraced it.

He would have just embraced it. You can't record an album going through something like chemo, he would have lived a few years longer but he wouldn't have been able to record. He did it for himself and he did it for his fans. It's really sad.

TFW you've just spent the last week in a Bowie Coma listening to nothing but him since the album dropped.

Listened to it yersterday (Europe time). Told friends about it "He's still making music? Wow he must be getting pretty old," now this.

runs the same all to today.

Have to say his death has completely changed the album for me. I was stupid enough not see that it's basically a fucking epitath/suicide note.
>>
Yeah, listened to it an it was absolute shit

Listened again just now, and it's still shit even with the "poetry" of his death
>>
quite happy i did. was thinking about it this morning, listening to it now for the first time completely changes your perception of the album.

Fuuuuck

i listened to it yesterday for the first time, maybe while he was dying
>>
"I'm dying to". When I listened to that lyric last night I knew he was directly telling us that he was dying. Fuck.

HE SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL, BLACK STAR VIDEO JUST CONFIRMS IT, YOU JUST DON'T RELEASE AN ALBUM AND DIE TWO DAYS AFTER

I reckon it's referring to what he'll be turned into after his death.
That's probably the significance of Major Tom's skull, all covered in jewels - everyone worships an embellished legacy of who he really was.
>>
I heard it on the 31st.
Sure, the leak was shit, but it was Bowie.
Then I got the CD version and listened again. It was even better than I thought it would be. Kinda annoyed that I listened to the vinyl leak first, but whatever.
Truly, this was a parting gift that will never be forgotten. I love you, David.

Man, relistening Blackstar for the x Time. it feels like every Song is linked to his upcoming death (something happened on the Day he died, where the fuck did monday go, i'll be free like THAT bluebird, look Up here i'm in heaven, sue goodbye etc.)
>>
>>61648147
/v/ here we listened to it when it was leaked.

It's seriously nothing special, and now that you understand the context of the album it's even more enjoyable.
>>
Listened to it two days ago on a whim. Weird timing, rip Bowie.
>>
>>61656892

That's James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem on percussion. Amazing to know that he had a hand in Blackstar.
>>
I downloaded a leak last Tuesday and gave it a listen straight away. Really enjoyed a lot of elements of the album, and just generally enjoyed Bowie's artistry. Listened to it at least once more in its entirety, then just selected tracks. Woke up this morning to the news of his passing and couldn't quite comprehend what I was seeing. Now that I've thought about it, the album makes so much more sense, as a sombre swansong.

>>61658603
>A man as depressive as Murphy had to know that Bowie was dying and keep it a secret all this time
>>
>>61649579
This is so fucking funny

Does listening to it at 2 in the morning count or did he die before hand
>>
>>61656701
>guy in his 20s or 30s predicts that a 69 year old man will die in his life time
Whoa, so profound. I think there may be something uncanny going on here!

Got into Bowie about 4 days ago by listening through that 5 Years boxset in one go. Jeezo, can't believe I didn't listen to his stuff earlier.

It's ok, one of my friends was in london and they've bought me a copy, which I'll pay them back for. Still feel a little guilty tho
>>
It's sold out of Tesco and Sainsburys, I saw loads of normies buying it lmao then they'll get home and realise it's one of Bowie's least accessible albums and it's not like Ziggy Stardust or Hunky Dory but they'll still pretend they like it even though they don't

posting in an epic bread.

Listened to Blackstar single when it was released.
Listened to the whole album for the first time yesterday, wake up to this today.

>Mother told me this morning that Bowie had died
B-but I only got his album yesterday, it's only just been released....

Though, i'm 40yo this year and have been aware of Bowie for pretty much the best part of those 40 years and got to see him live in the 90's.
>>
>>61652497
Was Kira based off of Bowie?
>>
>>61662271
haha yeah, it will sell like hot cakes but people will be horrified when it doesn't have nice digestible songs.
>>
>Listened to Black Star literally 2 days ago
>I said it was total shit and he should retire

I guess I got my wish, I'm sorry
>>
Hi
>>
I watched some music vids right after it came out.

Now that he's dead I have to listen to it and I understand what he was singing in a new context.

Was that your review on RYM?
>>
Before the news hit, I tried listening to the vinyl leak, and couldn't quite take it. I bought the album quickly after, and like any other Bowie release, I was extremely happy with it. A few hours later, when the news broke, it felt like everything inside me ceased for a moment, and I desperately hoped for a moment that it wasn't true.

Re-listening to Ziggy Stardast at the moment. I'm planning on re-listening to all of his stuff at some point, along with finally listening to the albums of his I was advised to skip when I first started listening to him.
