IT'S 4.01 GUYS

http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/david_bowie/%E2%98%85__blackstar_/

I'm so happy the album gets the love and appreciation it deserves and i hope it will manage to be the highest rated album of this decade so far, since it's much more deserving than the current highest rated album of the 10's in rym (which is MBDTF)
>>
this was such a mediocre album holy fuck

the song blackstar is fucking insufferable

MBDTF IS way better

Well, why would I listen to an album repeatedly if I thought it was horrible? There was a Simple Plan album I had to listen to on a car ride with a friend, only listened to it that one time. Still got a 1/5 from me.

>tfw Bowie saves rock music
>>
I don't know if it's because I'm a Bowie fag, but I was under the impression that people were already hyping and talking about Blackstar even before he died, so these claims that the album only got critically acclaimed now don't make any sense to me. Even here people were all over Blackstar and Lazarus when they got released.
Are all of them contrarian fags?

there's not really much to "get" with Bowie's music so 1-2 listens is plenty

what are you doing here if you don't recognise music from low
>>
>>61767423
It was well received before he died but if he hadn't died I don't think the RYM score would be this high. You could argue like people have that his death is part of the album and it should be rated with it in mind but there's a pretty thin line between that and overrating an album because the artist is dead. Still, the people saying it would get mediocre reviews if he didn't die are idiots because this is demonstrably false.

>>61767423
I was looking forward to blackstar as well,I thought the title track was really good after listening to it a few times ,plus I was just really happy Bowie was back making music,i thought it was strange that he refused to perform live or go on tour but I guess we know why now.

>>61768500
Just getting around to listening to this for the first time and HOLY SHIT I AM LAUGHING MY ASS OFF.

I haven't had an album disorient me in such an unexpected manner in a long ass time; I have found myself saying out loud "What the actual FUCK am I listening to?" for the first time since... like Ween when I was 15.

I am blown away that something could evoke such a response from me again. Is this even music? Mostly not, probably, but holy fuck if I don't enjoy it.
>>
>>61766560
That was most plebeian thing that i have seen in my entire life
>>
>>61768667
Of course music evolves and changes anon, but saying "x" genre is dead is just silly.

One of the nice things about this era of music is the huge variety of different genres. many genres have new releases and excellent albums being released in them.

>>61768706
What? it's not even THAT inaccessible anon. if you think this is "not music", well, it's your problem, and the problem is that your definition of music is very flawed.

I think it's an incredible album btw, i absolutely love it. if you don't like it it's okay, but claiming "it's not music" is just incredibly silly and objectively wrong.

it's actually a really good album, especially if your a Bowie fan. It just got over hyped because of circumstances.

It wasn't that clear for me. i haven't even thought about it until i was told about it.

I think the work of This Heat and Viet Cong are quite different anon, to be very honest with you.

>>61768481
They have a new one coming out too
>>
You are now aware that the stars spell 'BOWIE'.
>>
>>61769361
there are some similarities but of course its not a 1:1 rip off.
Either way the album is still pretty good and i reccomend it to anyone who hasnt listened to it.
>>
>>61769422
It seems logical that this is the reason they are in those shapes but, i think the first one doesn't look like B at all
>>
>>61769509
If you're going to limit yourself to five-point stars to spell out a word, what other configuration could be used for 'B'?
Also, what else could it spell? It's clearly got O, 'W', and an 'E', 4th could be seen as an 'I' or an 'A'.

Spells Bowie.

....Or it's a code that we can key into our spaceship so it knows which way to go.

Do you think 'blackstar' means he awknowledges he will become a 'star in the heavens' but unlike the usual association of a bright, shining star to memorise a loved one, a black star will be invisible on the night sky, even though it's there, it will be unseen and easily forgotten.
>>
>>61769972
Possible interpretations of 'blackstar'.

>Symbol of British rock
>Black hole i.e. Empty Void
>A variety of cancer legion
>Occult symbol of rebirth
>Juxtaposition of fame and undeserving.
>Transparency
>Kanye West

There are probably more but this is all I can think of.

it definitely deserves an extra .5 rating at least on the 5 star rating because of the subject material and his death.

This isn't a "oh he died, better critically acclaim it" type of deal, something I feel like a lot of people don't understand. But the album deals with a lot of themes of death and various other feelings one goes through in their final days. If he woudl have released The Next Day as his final record, nobody would really be all that concerned with his death affecting the rating, because although it was a good album, it wasn't conceptual.

However, listening to it as if it was his swan song is fucking spooky as shit. It's a special circumstance.

David Bowie has never made a good album. It's funny, going to any RYM page of a Bowie album and clicking through page after page of reviews, pretty much zero reviews actually talk about the music. They just talk about the man himself and how great he was, or what the album represents.
