If you didn't hear this before he died, you forever missed out on a totally unique headfuck and listening experience. The process of realising the whole album is literally a death note is like nothing I've ever experienced.

When the backlash comes, it will be from people who weren't there. I normally wouldn't say this but here there is nothing else to be said - their opinions do not count.

Of course, I hope people also don't forget that this was already a widely acclaimed release even without the context.

NOBODY WILL UNDERSTAND THE ALBUM BUT ME, I LISTENED TO IT BEFORE HE DIED YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF FUCKING BANDWAGONERS

it's okay OP the entire planet is mourning, join us instead of using elitism

>NOBODY WILL UNDERSTAND THE ALBUM BUT ME, I LISTENED TO IT BEFORE HE DIED YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF FUCKING BANDWAGONERS
This is not what I said at all
>>
>>61684359
Yeah, we get it.
>>
>>61684359
I feel like this is similar to people watching The Sixth Sense this many years on from release. Everybody knows the twist ending.

Except that this is real life, and a tragedy. Fuck.
>>
HE'S A FUCKING RAPIST YOU FUCKING RAPE APOLOGISTS. HIS MUSIC THEREFORE HAS NO MERIT. WOULD YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO MUSIC FROM A RAPIST??? NO YOU WOULDN'T UNLESS YOU'RE A SICK FUCK LIKE HE IS.

>>61684674
this would be true if hitler had been a good painter, but he wasnt so fuck off.
>>
>>61684674
IT WAS THE SEVENTIES!
>>
>>61684681
wtf hitler was excellent, at least his sketches that I've seen but I dont know about any paintings
>>
I just looked and hitlers paintings were fucking awesome
>>
>>61684663
idk the twist ending
now i'll leave the thread so you don't spoil it to me but idc, i'll probably never see it anyway
>>
>>61684742
I'm not gonna spoil it because I'm not an asshole and someone else will do it anyway, but how removed are you from pop culture that you don't know this? I've literally never seen it and I can't remember a time when I didn't know the ending. I always thought it was up there with the end of SW episode 5. Just one of those things people know by default
>>
Jesus, Dollar Days is so sad. I think it's sadder than the closer.

The absolutely stunningly beautiful melody tears my heart out

>I'm dying to
>push their backs against the grain
>and fool them again and again
>im trying to...
>im dying to...

his struggle to keep going, he didn't wanna stop. He wanted to keep pushing boundaries with his art, he was trying his best till the end.
>>
>>61684359
Yep, those of us who listened before he died are the only ones who ever got to really experience it. Feels good man
>>
>>61684714

No, he was not.

When I woke up on Jan 8th, the first thing I did was listen to it start to finish four times back to back. Damn.
>>
I bought it on friday and have been listening to it non stop since then, it has more meaning since monday...

fuck shit mang
>>
>>61684359
absolutely, all the moments over the last couple days of re-analysing lyrics and realising further meanings is a real fucking trip.
>>
>>61684763
As well as the ending of Planet of the Apes.
>>
>>61684359

Yeah I do secretly take pride in the fact that I spammed this album a solid 10 times before he died, can't help but feel like it would have less impact if I hadn't extensively listened to it.

It's not something you can go around telling people in every day life and it will probably never be acceptable to brag about unless you want to come off like a complete faggot but we know OP, we know we're in on something special that they missed, you and me bro we did it.
>>
>>61684359
well for me at least I watched the vids and listened to the album like an absolute madman as soon as they were out/leaks were available (i eventually bought it) and watching and listening to this shit being like what the fuck Davey? and then being able to go back and watch the lazarus video is fucking haunting. 10/10 way to die
>>
>>61684359
I feel you OP.
Beforr this album, i was not a fan of Bowie, just knew a couple of his popular ones. But then couple of my frienss were getting hype to this album so we heard it since friday.
This monday morning gained so much proportions, it's so weird and unbelievable. No one saw it coming, and it's truly a mindfuck experience that nobody was aware of the meaning of this album for just 2 days.
>>
>>61685960
is that the one where the monkeys built a replica of the statue of liberty? I didn't get it
>>
>>61686018
Nice try, Dr. Zaius
>>
>>61684359
I had just finished listening to the album a second time right before the news hit me. I felt broken once I began to tie things together with the news and the album. It's a fantastic finale.
>>

>this post
David Bowie's marketing soul lives on in the minds of his braindead fans.
>>
>>61684359
Totally agreed.
>>
I just managed to listen to Blackstar Sunday night so in 24 hours my perception of the album went from

"Man, Bowie sure likes being weird." to "Oh."

And I kind of just been stunned since then.
>>
>>61684359
Listening to album while playing dota with my friend. Next day wake up, hear that David died. Heart dropped, decided to listen to album again. Lazarus start playing, it suddenly clicks in my head. Start crying like a kid. Never have felt such sadness when somone dies.
>>
I was sitting on the metro listening to Lazarus when I read that he died. I just sat there for a minute and didn't know how to react.
>>
>>61688646
Yeah, same here, sat in the bus at 7 in the morning yesterday, listening through it again, and I randomly decided to open facebook to see what's going on
Lazarus suddenly started playing and I saw all the headlines

I just felt my heart drop and just being fucking stunned for the whole song
It still feels weird, so fucking weird
>>
>>61684359
I listened to this album for the first time and went to bed, and the first thing I saw on the internet when I woke up was that Bowie was dead. Fucking weird feeling.
>>
>>61689078
>This
I listened to Blackstar (the single) on Sunday and decided I might go buy the album on Monday but now I'm not sure if I want to hear the rest of the album. It just doesn't sit okay with me anymore.
>>
>>61684674
Shut b8 m8
>>
Particularly the Black Star video it really felt like he was trying to tell us something. Now he's dead it feels like the album was created from beyond the grave
>>
I actually can't watch the lazarus video now
>>
>>61686122
He can talk!
>>
>trying to out hipster people on a popular album

gee whiz OP you sure are a faggot
>>
>>61684423
I had it downloaded and was getting ready to listen to it. He died the next day before I was able to listen to it.

I finally understand the lyrics.
>>
>>61685963
i physically felt him die in me right before i heard the news. i was on 3 hits of lsd and my friend messaged me as i was feeling sick and he told me, and it was like all the pressure and sickness left my body. it was profound. so i listened to the album and cried.
>>
>>61684359

I feel like shit. I was literally going to store to buy it Monday. Now I'll never understand what it's like without knowing that it was his goodbye gift.
>>
>>61692139
i got it the day it came out. my record store had one copy, it was only 40 bucks, now i look on ebay and the standard goes for like 300 and the clear vinyl version goes for 4-500... im so fucking happy i went and got it... i listened to it that day and was blown away, two days later he died. fuck man.
>>
>>61684359
agreed. with context this album reaches a whole other level
>>
>>61691900
Explain them.
>>
>>61692027
Same happened to me.
Wake up, open Chrome, check the news, Bowie died, started to cry like a bitch all day.
The headache is here to stay, no sleep, just feeling bad.
>>
>>61692307
He told us Goodbye, with a lot of art in it, just as he knew.
>>
>>61693528
i knew deep down what he was saying. but i didnt want it to be true. im just so happy he was such an artist. and it was extremely profound to have this all come full circle while on acid.
>>

Yeah bro, i never tasted drugs but i don't know why; i know what you're feeling.
It's an incredible experience. Don't let it die.
>>

Why is it going for $300 when it can be bought cheaper retail?

You're a little faggot dude.

The amount of same fagging in this thread is incredible
>>
>>61684674
Get out under 30 fat fuck you swine. Kill yourself.
>>
Listened to it a day before he died. I think I killed him you guys :(
>>
>>61684674
Proof?
>>
>>61684359
I totally shit on Blackstar the second I heard it. Reminded me of shit I made in college on my Macbook.

I feel really bad now.
>>
>>61684674
I'm a sick fuck and i really like Bowie, but i don't have talents.
Does it count?

You aren't wrong. It is up there with "I am your father" which is a damn shame because that right there is a beautiful twist.
