R u excited for new Bowie tonight? I am. The teaser is fuking brilliant:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VPV4T6Ou-iI

Also ver excited about the record because of these comments from da main man Visconti:

"The Next Day started out trying to do something new but something old kept creeping in. Not this album."

"Having jazz guys play rock music turns it upside down."

Next Day had some killer, interesting pieces on it, but I agree that some lame cockrock type influences and other trite stuff seeped in sometimes, so I'm pretty stoked that this is gunna be a bit more left-field


pls only sickman and other fans of the messiah participate, God bless

Yeah I got pretty hyped after Sue/Tis a Pity, because that was a bit of a nice change in direction from TND already, I'm hoping he ventured in that sort of general direction for the new album.

I don't really care about knowing stuff before things come out so I don't even know what's known about this album and song other than they exist/will exist. But those Visconti quotes you posted are reigniting the #hype

And yeah I agree with you about TND. It was a pretty good album but I'd be disappointed by another Next Day. It was a really good comeback album though. It kind of makes sense in the history of Bowie, if you know what I mean. It wasn't overly "intellectual" nor overly "careless" but I think Heathen, for instance, managed to combine the two aspects better. I think I'm just talking semi-bollocks now so w/e.

I feel like I have a lot of things to say but I don't know exactly what or how.

@Pasta yes you should dedicate the next few days to his discography u pleb. No but really, give all of Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladin Sane a listen for classic 70s Bowie. Then try the German-influenced experiments of Heroes and especially Low. Then for contemporary Bowie give Outside and Heathen a listen.

I lost interest in David Bowie about fifteen years ago. All that coke killed his songwriting.

yea ever since I heard Sue I've been hoping it wasn't a glorious one-off. TND had some fun, clever pop and some true classic moments like Love is Lost, but then there's trash like Dancing on the Moon or whatever it's called which is so unexpectedly weak and drab.

Yea, Heathen perfectly captures both sides. Kinda wish it didn't have those covers tho tbh

blackstar is also a pretty killer record title. Like, it'd be lame if it was a metal band or something, but in this case it sorta excitingly recalls bowie's flirtations with the occult

Dancing out in Space

But yeah for instance, if I came up with a "top 20 Bowie songs" list or something (tempted as fuck right now, why did I say this) I guess none of the songs from The Next Day would make it in.

I don't usually care much for Bowie's covers and I don't really like to see covers in proper albums but tbh Cactus and Gemini Spacecraft are really good covers (also Pablo Picasso from Reality). The Neil Young cover is kinda shite though.

Not too much of a fan of the new album title, but idk, The Next Day sounded like a shitty album title too but now I guess I feel like it's alright.

Will spend all of next week from Tuesday Getting as much Bowie as possible.

The suggestions are greatly appreciated

I dunno man, I could easily see Love is Lost, If You Can See Me, or Where Are We Now? in a top 20

Yo sickman guess what I found in London today



also, was listening to Earthling last night. Man, even though there's a very cheap and cheesy appropriation of 90s dance music, it's still one helluva tight record imo

But yeah Earthling is pretty cool except for the few meh songs. I also hate that the well known song from it is I'm Afraid of Americans, which really isn't one of the best in the album. Telling Lies, Looking for Satellites (fuckin Boyzone namedrop though lol) and Seven Years in Tibet hmu

And yeah I'll listen to the new song in a bit, I brought my work laptop home on purpose for that because my laptop is kinda fucked and can get kinda stupid while playing videos sometimes.
#32
^yea! I've never understood that. Afraid of muricans is forgettable in comparison to the likes of Seven Years in Tibet.

Hurry up and share yer thoughts. It's a bit of a grower but holy shit I really love it now. Dat melancholic sax. In fact every part of the instrumentation is so tight. And that breakdown good gawd. Gotta feeling the album's gonna be a twisted , gloomy jazzy version of Outside.

Fucking Bowie manages to surprise me every time, there wasn't a way I'd be expecting exactly this. Especially that middle section (the "I'm a blackstar" bit), it sounds really Bowiesque but I really didn't see that coming. It's great, it reminds me of Buddha/Outside but also of Station to Station and the Berlin Trilogy.

Hyped as fuck.

(Also surely Outside is already a twisted gloomy version of Outside)

(Also I mentioned doing some sort of top 20 or something like that and I came up with a list of like 40 songs while I was waiting for something at work and I'll just crop it down and order it and post it here)

Ziggy Stardust is a flawless album start to finish.

Berlin era on is hit or miss for me, but there's certainly a lot worth checking out.
