Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

4.0 out of 5 stars better than we had any right to expect 15 Mar 2013
By freewheeling frankie TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well I'll admit, the genius marketing scam of issuing "Where Are We Now?" out of the blue with no warning at all certainly worked on me. I've got Bowie's last few albums, and they all have their moments, but I didn't buy any of them when they came out and perhaps partly because of that, I've never made the effort to really get to know them. I was mostly content to listen to his golden decade of albums from The Man Who Sold The World to Scary Monsters. But the cleverly orchestrated comeback got my full attention for the first time in decades so I had to hear this a.s.a.p.

So I've fallen for the hype, how am I feeling now that I've listened to the thing a few times?

Well, not conned, that's for sure. It's not particularly strong on melody - though melodically it certainly sounds like a Bowie record and it's far from tuneless. But it's very strong on both arrangements and lyrics - the latter in my experience being the first faculty ageing rock stars tend to lose. Even the less interesting songs, and there are two or three that let the side down a bit, make an interesting noise. And there's a pretty wide variety of styles, though there's little here that wouldn't have fitted in pretty well on Lodger, for instance, though parts of it are a lot rockier than most of that album.

I can't think of another rock artist who's come up with work of this quality at such an advanced age - by any standards this is a very good album - the songs are interesting, powerful, some of the lyrics are quite disturbing, nearly all of them are thought-provoking at least; the playing and arrangements are superb, Bowie's vocals are in good shape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new album 11 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having read a couple of the lower score reviews on here by people who have perhaps naively purchased this album expecting Bowie to be reincarnating Ziggy Stardust, I have felt compelled to point out to anyone who has their doubts about this one, should dispel these straight away. An absolutely terrific body of work, which deserves to judged on its own merits, rather than constantly refering back to albums Bowie made some 40 years ago. People have been saying this album mirrors much of his past work, and whilst there are ofcourse some echoes of this, I personally cannot think of any of his albums, which are quite like this one.

The true strength in this album for me, is the pure variety. An interesting placing and arranging of songs and styles contrasting with one another, providing a very fulfilling listen. That said there certainly are some outstanding songs within this album. The opening title track being one of the most punchy, intentive and driving rock songs to open any of his albums; this followed up with the funk guitar 'Dirty boys'. 'Love is lost', an excellent keyboard led piece and 'I'd rather be high' for me also amongst the highlights. In terms of creativity and variation in an album, this one ranks very high, indeed it could be the most creative album in his catalogue to date.

Throughout this year this album has been played inumerable times, and now just hoping that there will be more albums of simillar excellent quality to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good Bowie album 2 Mar 2013
By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a very good David Bowie album, in my view. It's a great relief to say it, because when some of the gods of my youth have returned in...well...late middle age after a long absence the results have not always been very good, to say the least. Here, Bowie shows that he is still a major songwriting and performing talent and that he still has a genuine edge.

We have had a little time now to digest the track Where Are We Now? and to assess its true merit now that the "Blimey!" factor following its surprise release has worn off a bit. I still think that it's a very good song indeed. I did worry that some of the fragile, almost-out-of-tune vocal wasn't a deliberate effect but the voice of a man who can't quite sing as he used to, but - thank heavens - I was quite wrong. It is followed on the album by Valentine's Day, a track which wouldn't have been out of place on Aladdin Sane and which Bowie sings superbly, and there's plenty of other evidence here that he's still got it.

The songs seem to me to be vintage Bowie. There is the full gamut from singable, rocky tunes like Valentine's Day, through lovely tender songs like Where Are We Now? to the almost tuneless and weird-rhythmed If You Can See Me, with plenty in between. He certainly hasn't settled into a comfortable rut in middle age - If You Can See Me has joined my list of Almost Unlistenable Bowie Tracks and I'm delighted to see that he is still prepared to challenge and unsettle his audience even if personally I don't like the result.

The lyrics, of course, are complex, allusive and often elusive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always be Open Minded to Anything New by Bowie 24 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That's the way to enjoy Bowies back catalogue. Don't expect another Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory, Heroes, or Lets Dance, he's done those already and it is common knowledge that Bowie is not one for staying around a musical style for to long. Unfortunately, it is also common knowledge that most people can't see past his 70's work.

From reading some of the negative reviews for The Next Day, some of these people sound like they haven't bought a Bowie album, or listened to anything by him, since at least 1971 and seem totally surprised and disgruntled that TND sounds nothing like Space Oddity or Young Americans. Where have these people been all these decades?

The only thing you should expect from any "new" Bowie recording is the unexpected. That's what I like about him. Try and move away from comparing everything to Ziggy, The Thin White Duke and so on. Just clear your mind and say I don't know what to expect from this, and play it a few times and most importantly GIVE IT A CHANCE as Bowies records always seem to take a while to get your head around. Having expectations based on any of his previous work is already damaging your chances of enjoying anything fresh.

When you listen to TND for the first time have no preconceptions and go with it. It's a fine album BTW but, it's not mainstream. I listened to it every week for around 9 months, and it's very rare that I get the urge to keep playing an album for so long, but it just got better with every play. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... it's a bit self indulgent in places but some good tracks too
i think it's a bit self indulgent in places but some good tracks too. It needs several listens. Listen on i-tunes first to see if it floats your boat.
