iTunes Review

Released on his 69th birthday, Blackstar is a bold final chapter to David Bowie’s chameleonic studio career. He digs deep into experimentation, playing frontman to Donny McCaslin’s NYC-based jazz combo for a thrillingly live-sounding 25th album. The band is impeccable, equally adept at playing tightly wound post-rock on "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)” as they are the skronky free-jazz runs that underpin Bowie’s forcefully breathy tone on "'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore.” Bowie is absolutely haunting on the beautifully odd 10-minute title track as he swings between theatrical and spacey, heavenly and menacing, swaggering and soulful.

In a Post-Bowie World...

Having listened to this album on release day, and now listening to it while crying and mourning the loss of a brilliant man...I have fallen even more in love with this album. A few lines, pieces here and there, just seem to make more sense. A wonderful finale- bravo David.

Positive vibes, prayers, and well wishes to all of my fellow Bowie-fans and especially to Iman, Duncan, and Lexi.

This shall RULE!

How cool is it that Bowie has enlisted young jazz lions to play on this album?! Mark Guiliana - drum, Tim LeFevre - Bass, Jason Linder - Keys, Donnie McCaslin - Saxophone.
David has always had fantastic musicians and this is no exception! The first single sounds amazing.

Thank you, Bowie! (Blackstar Song Review)

Absolutely genius. Once again Bowie is pushing boundaries, thinking outside the box, and creating breath- takingly profound art. Even at this age. Bowie is love, Bowie is life. I would recommend people really listen with an OPEN MIND. Some will get it, others will say "This is too wierd" and dislike it because it's challenging, different, and not a pop song. Don't be the latter. He wasn't trying to make a pop song. What he did make, however, is incredibly refreshing.

Sorry if this review comes off as pretentious, I'm just really proud of David and ecstatic for the new album. If "Blackstar" is any indication of it's quality, we're in for yet another late-career masterpiece.

Peace

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

The cliché about David Bowie is that he was a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated a remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock...
