I just listened to the whole album for the first time.


OH MY GOD IT IS AMAZING! Next Day is a really good album, solid comeback record, but Blackstar makes Next Day seem like Tonight by comparison. This album is so good.  I had a hunch this album would finally put Bowie back onto his classic period quality, and I was right.  it certainly doesn't beat every album he did from 1969 to 1980, but it deserves to be ranked up there with them.  He has managed to make an album that in my mind finally breaks past the Scary Monsters Super Creeps barrier heaped onto him for years.

That's what I was hoping for with this record. I can't wait to hear it.

Just saying, in one song he is gonna make a case for 69 year olds doing Hip Hop. And he is going to make that case extremely persuasively

This album is why I scoff at fans who say they want him back in public and touring. The fact that he has secluded himself, been classy in his complete silence, and no longer cares at ALL about popularity because he know he's got that down, all of that results in albums like the Next Day and Blackstar, two of the three best post scary monsters albums in a row.

I wish U2 would realize there is no need to worry about popularity anymore.

I'd love for him to tour only because I've never seen him perform and it'd be my dream concert to see him. But I am glad he's focusing on recording new music now after being MIA for a decade.

I would like to include Heathen into the "best album since Scary Monsters" though.

Let's Dance, Earthling, Black Tie White Noise (very underrated, although parts of it do sound dated), Hours, and Outside. Also David Bowie's band Tin Machine released two albums, which are really good, before Black Tie.

Even Bowie's worst albums have some shining moments.

Let's Dance isn't much good apart from the three famous singles.  A few famous singles does not make a good album be.  Think HTDAAB!

If you want to start on that period , start with Outside. Easily his second best post scary monsters album after Blackstar. But if the song says Segue, just skip it. Not worth them time or effort to understand the story, and the voices make the album plodding. Just listen to the song songs.

Yeah, but those famous singles are really good songs. I also think Criminal World and Cat People are quality tunes too.

I still haven't listened to Let's Dance for some reason, but essentially half of the album is famous (and Cat People is a great song too). So that's at least half of a great album.
