There's not many artists who can go back to being weird after being mainstream. Blackstar and the accompanying video are amazing.

It's not the first time he's done it either. After his mainstream success in the '80s he released Outside (probably his most experimental album) in '95.

Which is also, notably, maybe my favorite of his.  Either that, or Low.

I'm not yet decided on this.  New Bowie is good.  Weird Bowie is good.  But I'm not entirely sure of this.  It's certainly interesting.  I was not impressed with the new songs on his latest hits set, but here they are.  Maybe they'll convince me over time.  At any rate, I'll be picking this up.

I love Blackstar. Tis a Pity and Sue are great as well. I love this version of Bowie. While the only albums by him I don't like a lot are Tonight and Never Let Me Down, I like some albums better then others. Next Day was very good, solid album, but Blackstar is looking like its gonna be even better.

Boom Cha!

I hope the album version of 'Tis A Pity is a different mix. It's an ok song, but it just sounds like a demo to me. I love Sue, but I also hope it's a different mix only because I own the song already.

I do believe it's confirmed Sue is in a new form.

Here's Lazarus: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I think I like it even better than the title track.

Forget Star Wars, this is where it's at. Looking forward to the album in a few weeks!

OMG Lazarus is great. Dang. I though Blackstar was gonna be the centerpiece of the album, but Lazarus has beaten it. Both are great, but Lazarus is an all time Bowie Classic. I've listened to it 8 times

Not a huge Bowie fan, but Lazarus was incredible!

Lazarus sounds a bit like Slip Away from Heathen.  Not that that is a bad thing.

I think so too. With a bit of Reality perhaps.
