The No Plan EP was originally released digitally on January 8th, 2017 the day after would have been David Bowie's 70th Birthday. The release reached #1 on the iTunes charts of 11 countries including the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Finland and Sweden, and broke the Top 20 in more than 30 territories. The No Plan EP is now being made available on CD and vinyl formats. The vinyl version is pressed on heavyweight 180g black vinyl that includes a special laser etching on side B and is housed in new artwork designed by longtime collaborator Jonathan Barnbrook. The No Plan EP features the single 'Lazarus' from ?, and the three final David Bowie studio recordings during the sessions for his 28th and final album - "No Plan," "Killing A Little Time" and "When I Met You." The track "No Plan" was hailed by Rolling Stone who ranked it at #4 in their 50 Best Songs of 2016 as "a magnificent coda one last transmission from the Bowie universe." Since the release of ?, the album has only grown in stature, establishing itself as a critical and commercial high point of David Bowie's peerless catalogue. Having hit #1 in more than 20 countries (including Bowie's first #1 in the U.S.), ? closed out 2016 with five Grammy nominationsBest Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical as well as two Brit Awards nominations British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year (?) and top honors in critics' best of 2016 lists including #1 positions in the AV Club, Flavorwire, The Los Angeles Times, MOJO, Newsweek, Now, Paste, Q, The Wire, Uncut and more, #2 spots including the BBC, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, NPR and Rolling Stone, ultimately placing in the year-end lists of more major publications than any album released in 2016

So why the four stars? The quality of the disc itself and the uninspiring sleeve. The disc I received came smudged with what I can only describe as paper/cardboard dust and grease which I had to wipe clean before playing. There were also burrs all around the edge of the disc that clearly hadn't been polished off/removed after the disc had been cut, I had to remove this myself without damaging the disc. This was disappointing although fortunately there wasn't a lot of it.
As for the sleeve design, after the exquisite elegance of the Blackstar vinyl cover, the No Plan EP cover was somewhat of a let down. The quality was fine but the artwork was distinctly average in my opinion. However, it is only an EP so I suppose we can't expect anything groundbreaking. I will add though that the etching on the blank side of the record is excellent, it more than makes up for the weak sleeve artwork.
Overall, aside from the mentioned niggles/nitpicking, this is a worthy addition to my vinyl collection and will sit nicely alongside the rest of my Bowie vinyl collection.
1. Lazarus - Not sure I can find anything different from the version that appeared on Blackstar, and whilst it’s a great song it's only value here is to extend the EP by 6:22 minutes.
2. No Plan - Ooh nice, a Bowie ballad in the mode of Wild Is The Wind (great saxophone DB) that feels as though it could have been at home on The Next Day CD,
3. Killing A Little Time - What can you say, not a ground-breaker it’s a Bowie-by-numbers song that could come from any era, particularly the part where the musicians are all seemingly playing something different simultaneously.
4. When I Met you
- Good, again very Bowie, but from the 2000's with wonderful multi-layered Bowie voiced vocals that would have been difficult to re-produce on stage.
