DAVID BOWIE's BLACKSTAR is currently number 1 album on the charts. But let's face the facts, shall we? It's mediocre at best. The man had to quite literally DROP DEAD to get you to go out and buy it.
With all due respect from someone who loves DAVID BOWIE's music, quite frankly his later works just did not measure up to the albums I'm about to lay on you.
And yes before the scathing comments of "you aren't even good enough to polish BOWIE'S shoes" etc. I will be the first to admit that I am just a simple man who gapes in awe at the masterful works of DAVID ROBERT JONES aka DAVID BOWIE.
But all you Bowie come lately fans really are doing yourselves a disservice if you think ANY of his latest stuff can even come close to the following:
SPACE ODDITY 1969
THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD
THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST
Those are the core of his best works. After you've listened to every one of them, you'll see what I meant.
Also listen to STATION TO STATION,
and SOME of his later albums.
