When I discovered them some years ago (thanks to Dylan), I thought they were just another great band. But they are THE Band. The name says it all.
I really loved Kiss Each Other Clean, a fabulous take on Elton John early 70s sound and songsmith. But this new record is almost heartbreaking for me. I also hate it.
And The Laziest River is, in did, an epic and unparalleled masterpiece.
As Dylan would put it: It’s all good!
Spot on, yoko_oh_no. All guests’ contributions seemed so far to be fully absorbed by the band sound. The same will probably happen in this new album.
Lodger is awfully low.
A bonus track is, by definition, a part of an album.
You write so little about the record, man. And when you do, you do it vaguely as if Bowie’s previous work is more of a burden to you than to Bowie himself.

‘Plan’ (previewed at the start of the video for ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’) is a stunning instrumental rush, straight outta Berlin, a piledriver chord-drone extended over click-beats, like an elusive found fragment, a blue-blue-electric-blueprint.
From The Quietus review. The record seems to be great.
