David Bowie - The Next Day.(UK 2013)

Latest CD Arrival.

Bowie is back! After about 10 years, The Thin White Duke is back with a new album and it got voted No.2 album of the year in the Uncut Magazine best of 2013 album list. It doesn't sound stylistically all that different from his last two releases back in the early 2000's, but it has maintained the quality of those two records. Like some others of his vintage, Bowie has made a late career resurgence with some strong material that sounds like just what he want's to put out and not dictated by some record company jerks trying to sell mega quantities of albums. You probably won't hear any of this on commercial radio and it isn't exactly classic rock but there is some good stuff here and I especially like the smoky sax on several tracks, especially "Dirty Boys" Overall most enjoyable and gets a rating of 4/5.
