One of the best Bowie Albums, very dark and experimental. Very reminiscent of 1. Outside.

Just a great album. Even better than The Next Day which was also really good. For a pretty experimental album it's very melodic and accessible.

It's not bad, but it's hard for me to shake 70's Bowie.

From Tamthebam 01/29/2017 13:01
The last album he recorded in his lifetime and what a prophetic and personal album he left us with. All 7 tracks are special in their own way Lazarus and the title track do stand out but the remaining tracks are also great Girl Loves Me & Dollar Days especially. The album as a whole has a jazzy feel to it and is a slight departure for Bowie. The only negative I have is that I prefer the original version of Sue.

The last Bowie album, and it can be considered one of his best, competing with his albums from the 70's.

Favorite Track: Lazarus

About one year since the album's release, his birthday and his death... the emotions are still too much to bear consider everything surrounding him. Just too much. Thank you for the music you made David Bowie....
