Not impressed at all,
This review is from: The Next Day (Audio CD)
Seems to me, lots of people praising this album based on Bowie's previous popularity, celebrities as well as normal people jumping on the bandwagon.
If this was by an 'unknown' artist, it would be completely ignored.

If Low and Heroes had been recorded by an unknown artist, they too would have been ignored. Same for Pin Ups.

Here we have the obvious scribbling of a bland characterless person, who likes to trawl the 1 star reviews and add his pointless opinion!!!

The problem with Mr Roberts is that, by his own admission, he is not a fan of David Bowie and his music has never moved him, so quite what he is doing getting hold of his latest album in a 45 year career is mystifying. If he doesn't like Bowie fair enough, but why is his latest album interesting him so much?
Maybe Mr Roberts should stick to reviewing walking boots, but, looking at his reviews of them, he is not happy with them either!

As a session player, I listen to, and play, all types of music. Some I adore, some I dont. I appreciate Bowie as an influential artist, and was interested to listen to his new album, which I was not very impressed with. I left a review of MY personal impression of that album, NOT anyone else's, I am entitled to MY opinion, as is everyone else, I am also entitled to leave a review, as is everyone else. If 'die hard' Bowie fans dont agree with my review that is fine, but when other reviewers resort to being rude, abusive, and telling me my review (my own personal opinion) is 'wrong'? then you do not understand the point of reviews. Perhaps you would feel more at home living in North Korea, where people are not allowed to have their own opinion.

All well and good, but your "review" gives absolutely no insight into why you don't like it other than you don't like it. As you say, you opinion is valid. However, a little more constructive criticism might not have gone amiss.

Your original response to my review:
"If Low and Heroes had been recorded by an unknown artist, they too would have been ignored. Same for Pin Ups" doesn't give a massive insight into your musical opinions either does it? Infact, I cant see ANY reviews from you, so you are hardly in a position to criticise my reviews, either about music or walking boots.
