His best album in 10 years
on 23 March 2013
Over the years David Bowie has produced some ground-breaking albums, so I was very much looking forward to this especially as I liked the first promotional track.
The most polite thing I can say is that this is his best album for 10 years; I just found the music not as inspiring as I had hoped especially given the extended break that he has had. Further it could have done with some judicious pruning as it seems maybe three tracks too long, I know I bout the deluxe edition with the extra tracks (two of which would have been better placed in the main album replacing) but I think this album could be or should have been sequenced making it shorter and removing some of the less exciting tracks.
A solid album just a bit long and I don't think will appeal to anyone outside of his core fan base.
