Back in time
8 January 2022
Artist: DAVID BOWIE
8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016
His 25th and final studio LP
Released: 8 January 2016
7 years ago today, on his 69th birthday.
Today he would have celebrated his 76th one.
Pitchfork wrote: “Blackstar has David Bowie embracing his status as a no-fucks icon,
clutching onto remnants from the past as exploratory jazz and the echos of various
mad men soundtrack his freefall.” Full review here. Score: 8.5/10.
BLACKSTAR is a somber and sinister farewell record. Soul-stirring
and spine-chilling. Two days later The White Duke passed away.
Thank you for the music, Starman.
