It reminds me of those comeback albums by classic artists that ran rampant in the late '90s; designed to make Neil Diamond cool like Johnny Cash.

I'm a Bowie fan. I go through phases of outright fanaticism, usually revolving around his '70s and early '80s output. Station to Station is one of my favorite records of all time, period. So is Low. I listen to the Earthling remixes more regularly than anyone I've ever encountered. But I just can't really get with this one. Then again, it's hard to find a great Bowie album that doesn't sound like his worst to at least some of his fans.

BBC's arts editor Will Gompertz said the exact same thing (literally, he called it "almost boring"), but with the caveat of its good that bowie can just make a mediocre album in the first place. Every album an artist puts out shouldn't have to be epic, phenomenal, or historic, if anything that negates the power of their best works.

I think Bowie really never had a truly epic record so much as had some damn great singles and tunes that are on decent albums.

Sounds about right. Foreboding is EXACTLY how I often describe Los Angeles. Its well reflected in our music.

You have to get used that foreboding and learn to enjoy it like a drug, that and you have to learn to readjust your psyche to include vast and seemingly insurmountable territories. You have to concede that, fuck geography, even places 40 or 50 miles apart are all mutually Los Angeles. This is hard to do for many people not well experienced in this geographical dyslexia, but it is our own.

I really enjoyed your take on the new Bowie album. I too played it all the time after purchasing it the day it was released. Then, after a solid month or so of heavy listening, I haven't listened to it in over two months.

Being a fellow Bowie fan, I'm curious as to your take on the album cover? For whatever reason, it bothers me more than anything???

After the "big push" leading up to the release, I haven't heard much about Bowie or the album since a 7" was released for Record Store Day.

Of all the words one could use to describe that album, sad is not one that would come to mind for me. I'm not saying you're wrong, I've just never thought about it that way myself.

maybe not sad, but it did charge up some feelings inside me at that moment. anxiety and nostalgia. i remember when i bought this on a cold freeze over in 2000. "Venus" and "Guiding Light" are just beautiful.

Adventure has "The Dream's Dream". another one of those.

not feeling this new Queens album. pretty much love everything up until this. the great riffs,excellent spooky sexy harmonies are gone. experimentation is lackluster.
