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

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.

I really like this album. It isn't as interesting prog as Pink Floyd or even Prince (For me at least) so the highest it can score is a 95, but it's still kind of interesting. Kind of forgettable though.

Remarkable, even from a visionary like Bowie. It is the work of a genius and perhaps as good as anything else he did. A fitting end to an extraordinary life.
