Ever since I saw Labyrinth as a kid, I have been a fan of David Bowie. I have some of his Ziggy Stardust albums, many of the movies he's starred in, and much of his after-Ziggy stuff on CD... and I still enjoy listening to it on quiet nights. Let's face it, he's just a great musician.
However, this latest album carries a different tone, more modern. I am still not too sure if I like it or not, but with lots of playing, I think it will grow on me.
With a more techno feel to it (especially the released single, 'New Killer Star') it is good music, sure, but is it really the David Bowie we all know and love? Prince tried 'going modern' and it backfired on him, so he's returned to his roots (as shown by his latest album, Musicology) so I am kinda hoping David does the same.
Overall, still great music, but not the Bowie we grew up with. This is the 21st Century Bowie.
