Any good TH? What do you think are the best tracks? For me it's Valentine's Day, The Next Day, I'd Rather Be High, the two singles, all of it really.

I'm waiting for the vinyl.

I'm still digesting an It Bites album for the Prog Rock Album Club, Fluff, while also analysing the new "War of the worlds" for review, checking out David Soul's career for a new section in my journal, putting together a serious Rory Gallagher feature and also reviewing as many albums as I can while at the same time writing synopses of TV shows for the Couch Potato.

So I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. But it's on the list for well before the weekend. Well, before Monday anyway. I'll let you know.

Fluff, first time I listened to it I was underwhelmed, bit meh, but second time I really got into it and I think I can say now I do like it a lot. More info on favourite tracks soon, though "Love is lost" and the closer are coming close to being the best so far...

I found it a lil bland on first listen also. I have to agree that Love is Lost is the standout on the album. I've had a habit of having to warm to albums lately. I did the same thing with Devo's latest. Bowie still has the chops, i'm impressed.

Hey chaps I really liked this album. I posted this elsewhere but it seems to be relevant here , it's a track by track review and analysis of The Next Day...

David Bowie - The Next Day: All 14 Tracks Reviewed And Analysed

My Top 3 Essential Tracks from it are..

- The Next Day
- Where Are We Now?
- You Feel So Lonely...

I think all 3 are up there with Bowie's best!!

PEACE x

That is the shittest album art ever. Not a bad album though.

Okay I've had plenty of listens to this now (expect a review soon in my journal) and here's what I class as the best tracks, working down from best to --- I couldn't say worst, cos no track on this is really bad, but the ones I like least.

In order:
Love is lost
Where are we now
You feel so lonely you could die
I'd rather be high
The stars are out tonight
How does the grass grow
You will set the world on fire
Heat
Dancing out in space
Valentine's day
The next day
Boss of me
If you can see me
Dirty boys

Looking forward to the review man. Surprised you think Valentine's Day is so low down in the ranking, I thought that was one of the best tracks on there. Lovely song.

A month on from the leak and I can safely say this is definitely his best since Scary Monsters.

Anyone love Bowie's latest album? I love it, but not as good as Heathen. Your thoughts?
