Editors’ Notes

After 10 years of studio silence, David Bowie shocked everyone by dropping "Where Are We Now?" on his 66th birthday. We soon learned it was the first single to an album he'd recorded on the sly with producer Tony Visconti, the man behind many classic Bowie albums. The single alludes to Berlin-era Bowie, and the album cover reimagines that of "Heroes", the centerpiece of his Berlin trilogy. Not surprisingly, the sounds on The Next Day are among the most challenging of Bowie's career. A heart attack curtailed his 2004 tour, but it let Bowie step back and recharge. Fans will search for clues (and they appear to be here) that link the songs to others in his catalog. But even without an advanced degree in Bowie, one can marvel how chords and rhythms sound different when he and Visconti put them to work. Even a cruiser like "Dancing Out in Space" has an apocalyptic worry chasing it. The hook to "How Does the Grass Grow?" is taunting. "You Feel So Lonely You Could Die" strikes an isolated pose.

Customer Reviews


This album is a combination of all things Bowie, yet he continues to be modern, and he is always unique and unsurpassed. Their are tones from Low, notes from his debatable 80's period, drug references from his struggles, and the happy new Bowie that has shed "Major Tom" and finally found the axe to break the ice; he has come down right now. I will listen to this over and over, and I will continue to find new things, references to old things that I did not catch before, and it makes me contemplate every possible human emotion. Thanks again Mr. Bowie!

I feel so young listening to this!

Can't believe Bowie has released such great creativity, something about this music takes me way back in time and makes me remember what it's like to feel young again !

Berlin Wall falls

I'm assuming this song is about the day the Berlin Wall came down. The basic things family didn't know you had the freedom to do, 20,000 people crossing with fingers crossed (they used to shoot them). Rich lyrics and imagery. Bowie still genius, still wonderful! Still a handsome man.


Genre: Rock

The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated 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 album,...
