I think we can agree that Blackstar is a masterpiece which deserves all the accolades it receives.

Nah, it's too accessible to be a masterpiece.
>>
>>61750595
Indeed. RIP David Bowie.
>>
It's one of the only pop albums from 2000-2016 that I can definitively say is an artistic masterwork.
Probably because it was created by Bowie, a person who worked and artistically developed in the album era.

Nowadays artists don't give a fuck about putting out something as meaningful as Blackstar.

>>61750595
agree

what a great way to go

Solid 8, Bowie's best album since Scary Monsters easily.

100% false. It deserves some, but I guarantee it will receive way more than it actually deserves just because he died.

i think its cool that rock music now has a donuts of its own

Double dubs.

Anyway the album stands on it's own. The music is very simple yet highly detailed, with a swathe of flavours. It's one of those "of course" things where in hindsight anyone could have thought of it, but never before.

It'd be interesting to hear the outtakes and b-sides that inevitably were made.

When will you people realize that
>uuiihjk just cuz he died
Isn't a valid argument to criticize the ratings of this particular album? His death COMPLETED the album.

True that. I was hot for this record last weekend and couldn't stop listening to it, after being excited for it since the November single release. I was listening to it when I saw the sad news, and it was a lightbulb moment, but the album was good.

It'll be in the top 10 of P4k's top 100 albums of this decade, and The Next Day will be too..


screen cap this

;)

Not criticizing the album, just pointing out that people will overrate it. If you don't think they will then you don't understand how people work.
>>
>>61751563
The objectivity fags need to leave.
His death completed the album because the fucking album is ABOUT his death.

>>61750595
Solid 9. My fourth favorite Bowie record, and his best since Lodger.

Blackstar will be at number 10, Next Day won't be on it at all.

so my ears are kind blocked from the flu, some mysterious sweling somewhere, and i feel like im behind something sonically. some frequencies are lost, some intensified somehow. had blasckstar on repeat doing some work and fuck, it sounded so well put together and deliciously layered. must have been super joyful to make, makes me think.
>yeah, it was the flac rip m8

>>61750992
>your eyes

It's okay, like most of his career.
I wasn't aware most of /mu/ even liked him until his death. Now there's a new thread for this average faggot every minute.
I can only imagine what'll happen when someone like Thom Yorke or Bob Dylan dies.

It adds nothing to the music. It adds context to the themes, but this album does not sound better just because he died right after it was released. It does make it more impactful, I'll admit.

Correct, and because it affects you more, you resonate more with it. Therefore your opinion of it changes.

Don't be stupid.
>>

>I wasn't aware most of /mu/ even liked him

Buddy, if you don't like Bowie you just don't like music. He produced such an incredible variety of music, there has to be something which you like.
>>
>>61753512
I've seen people on /mu/ praise low for as long as I've been here. Aladdin sane gets mentioned every once in a while, and pretty much everyone likes ziggy stardust.
