Nice piece. Seen him twice in the last 10 years, both with my family. An unending parade of hits but also of weird, goofy songs that you understand could only have been birthed and ushered into pop consciousness by this one dude. (I say "weird, goofy" as a huge compliment.)

I don't care what you guys say, if I have to go to a Kenny Chesney concert I'm also taking every drug I can see, guzzling cheap beer and throwing my trash everywhere.

I love him too but the brevity of Blackstar is hugely refreshing. This is a dude that basically spent the whole CD era loading discs with as many tracks as he could. All the '90s albums are too long IMO; even if the tracklist was a manageable number, the album would be mostly 5 minute long songs. A Bowie album under 45 minutes feels like a godsend, focused and purposeful.

Overall, Bowie crooning opaque lyrics over Satan jazz is something I can jam to.

Blackstar and Lazarus were the 2 right songs to release first, 'cuz they're the best. Dollar Days and I Can't Give Everything Away are the "grower" candidates right now. To me, this album is a lot better than The Next Day, which was a little boring for me, aside from being probably 3 tracks too long.

The cover art on this is amazing. Kind of gives me the vibe of old Doom Patrol comic covers by Brian Bolland.
