Over two years old and ends up being one of the most vibrant and heart breaking albums ever conceived. What every artist should try to achieve when they get to there twilight years. And probably the best album of 2016. And there were three other albums I thought were masterful. While this is just god like. This makes me worried for his other 24 albums since this was my beginning to Bowie. As well as having Space Oddity from 69 to cover soon.

Bowie faked his own death for this one and is right now working on the follow up called "Tin Machine III".

From Azbest2000 03/20/2018 22:53
Frightening jazzrock record about a man facing an end. Clear standouts are Blackstar and Lazarus, the rest could be better, because it had potential to be one of the best albums of this century.

Further note: He has a great voice, but that's not what Rock is all about for me...

From Sandrof1969 02/24/2018 16:44
Il disco che nessuno avrebbe mai voluto che esistesse… Con il cancro che lo minava ormai in maniera irrimediabile, Bowie mette in scena la sua morte, come ha sempre fatto con la sua vita, in maniera lucida, incredibilmente studiata. Non è questo certamente il primo disco che parla di morte e nemmeno il primo ad essere realizzato da uno che sta per morire ( "The wind" di Warren Zevon… ), ma una trasposizione in musica e versi della propria imminente morte penso che nessuno avesse mai avuto il coraggio e la determinazione per farla.
