The day after The Next Day

PLEASE DON’T GET ME WRONG. THE NEW BOWIE’ ALBUM IT’S NOT BAD. NOT AT ALL. IT’S A BRILLIANT, OFTEN VERY BRILLIANT, ALBUM. IT’S BRUTALLY WHAT ITS SITUATIONIST COVER PROMISED: HEROES WITH A WHITE SQUARE ON ANNOUNCING “THE NEXT DAY”. IT’S ONLY THAT THIS NEXT DAY HAPPENS TO BE VERY LIKE THE LAST DAYS. AS THE DAYS OF HIS LAST THREE ALBUMS, THE PRE-HeART ATTACK TRILOGY OF HOURS/HEATHEN/REALITY. THEY WERE SEVERELY OSTRACIZED BUT THEY WEREN’T THAT BAD TOO…

45 YEARS IN HIS CAREER DAVID BOWIE HASN’T RELEASED A BAD ALBUM YET (WELL, A COUPLE OF HIS MID ’80S EFFORTS WERE LAME AT LAST…) SO DON’T GET ME WRONG: THE NEXT DAY IS A PRETTY SOLID ALBUM. SONICALLY IS A LODGER V. 2.0. BUT IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A COLLECTION OF MASTER SONGs AS IN DIAMOND DOGS OR FOR A NEVER-HEARD-BY-HUMAN SOUND AS IT HAPPENED THE FIRST TIME YOU LISTENED TO LOW, YOU’LL BE LET DOWN, HONEY…

BUT LET’S SEE THE GLASS HALF FULL (NAH… 4/5 FULL). THERE’S A NEW BOWIE ALBUM OUT SO THIS PLANET SEEMS A BETTER PLACE….
