Mad_Radhu: 7KQ201_McKittrick: Who is David Bowie?

A guy who was in this magician movie with Wolverine, Batman, and Black Widow, but it's not important now.

Wait, you forgot the most important part:

He played Nikola Tesla.

Nikola. Farking. Tesla.

/perfect casting.

douchebag/hater: Not bad for a guy who quietly slipped into retirement 7 years ago.

Guess he needed the money.

Of course he does. Do you have any idea what kind of burn rate the Guild of Calamitous Intent has?

Frak you, subby.

Even if the concept was iffy, it was still a great album.  Earthling was pretty good, too.

I love The Next Day, and it's proving to get better with every listen. Stylistically, it's all over the map in the same way the Berlin Trilogy was, and just as creative IMHO. I have never been a huge fan of his albums from the last 20 years as compared to his back catalogue, but this new album is just great.

/Favorite tracks: Dirty Boys, If You Can See Me, and Valentine's Day

I liked Earthling and Heathen.  I can see I'll be picking this new one up, Bowie is one of those oldies who can actually still sound new when he does new stuff.

TheJoe03: Is it really that good? What's it sound like lyrics, vocals, and music wise? I know Bowie has had different styles for different eras, so is the album a throwback to a certain Bowie style or is it something new?

I'd say somewhere between Aladdin Sane and Station to Station with a modern taste to it.

Really quite a good album.

LucklessWonder: Damn good album. Not buying the hype that says it's Bowie's best in 30 years ("Hours..." was really bloody good) but it's just great to have new Bowie music again. Though the video with Tilda Swinton is just weird.

at least it answers the age old question "have you ever seen David Bowie and Tilda Swinton in the same room at the same time"

Sgt Otter: sno man: with apologies to Nefarious....
Subby you suck at Math and Everything Else.

After reading TFA, it seems subby meant "first number one album since..."

I saw him on the Outside tour with Nine Inch Nails, and I knew it was later than 1993.

You're all missing the joke.

Subby denies the existence of the other albums.

It's a great album, but it gets really melancholy by towards the end. I think Bowie needs a hug.
