David Bowie, Blackstar, track by track

By Neil McCormick, Music Critic
18 December 2015 • 7:15am

Blackstar: Album’s lead single, nearly ten minutes of time-stretching, genre-spanning sci-fi melancholia and inscrutable lyrical invention. “You’re a flash in the pan / I’m the Great I Am”

Tis A Pity She Was A Whore: Thunderous beat anchors jazzy extemporisations in elliptical tale of sex & war, whilst the crooning melody moves at half the pace of everything around it. “Man, she punched me like a dude.”

Lazarus: Slinky club groove builds by degrees into wild saxophonic freefall of escape and desperation. “I’ve got scars that can’t be seen.”

Sue (of In a Season of Crime): Tragedy of love, murder and misunderstanding. New version driven by gritty guitar introduces even more forward rushing momentum into an explosive mix of drum’n’bass and free jazz. “Endless faith in hopeless deeds.”

Girl Loves Man: Hints at the kind of alienated, off-kilter twist on scruffy rock that post-Britpop Blur delighted in, complete with Clockwork Orange nadsat slang tossed off in a sneering drawl. “Viddy viddy at the cheena / Titty up the malchicks say.”

Dollar Days: Melancholic piano chords, lightly strummed guitar and tender vocal evoke epic Bowie balladry, until all is swept away in a jazzy landslide. “I’m dying to push their backs against the grain / And fool them all again and again.”

I Can’t Give Everything Away: Sax and synths flow across the taut rhythmic pulse of gorgeous, mysterious album closer. Finally, like a rock phoenix, a lead guitar solo rises up and breaks for the horizon. “I know something’s very wrong / the pulse returned to the prodigal sons.”

David Bowie, Blackstar, first listen: 'extraordinary'

By Neil McCormick, Music Critic
18 DECEMBER 2015 • 7:00AM

With his new album, rock’s oldest futurist returns to his first love, says Neil McCormick

After a 10-year absence, David Bowie’s surprise return to music in 2013 was hailed as the most glorious comeback in pop history. A record-breaking V&A exhibition reminded us of the extraordinary scope of his career. The music he offered on his comeback album, The Next Day, sounded like a celebration of Bowie’s own past, swaggering and direct, crammed with echoes and motifs from his back catalogue – Bowie as self-mythologiser. The niggling concern was that such retro references might reflect a lack of genuine inspiration though, and a kind of career end. In the light of his eagerly anticipated new album, Blackstar, however, The Next Day might better be viewed as a clearing of the decks.

But for his 27th studio album, has Bowie gone jazz? On first listens to Blackstar, released on January 8, Bowie’s 69th birthday, it certainly sounds like rock’s oldest futurist has dusted down his saxophone. They are tooting, parping, wailing and gusting all over the place, occupying rhythmic, atmospheric and lead parts, with guitars and keyboards intermingling in a weave of supporting roles. The saxophone was Bowie’s first instrument, which he started learning in his pre-teens inspired by a bohemian, jazz-loving elder half-brother, Terry Burns. Bowie once said that, aged 14, he couldn’t decide if he wanted “to be a rock’n’roll singer or John Coltrane”. Even in his rise to rock fame, Bowie remained a creature of the jazz age, at least in the sense of the boundary-crashing freedom that characterises his work...

★ album review in The Telegraph

“This way or no way”

Great review of ★ in The Telegraph by Neil McCormick today.
The piece is headed “With his new album, rock’s oldest futurist returns to his first love”, and here’s the concluding paragraph...

    “Lazarus is currently the hottest theatre ticket in New York. How wonderful if all of this actually represents an entirely new phase in Bowie’s extraordinary career. How fantastic to have an album as rich and strange as Blackstar that refuses to yield in a few listens. It suggests that, like a modern day Lazarus of pop, Bowie is well and truly back from beyond.”

18 DECEMBER 2015

Ten-page ★ album feature in RS France

“Just like that bluebird”

Out now is the January/February 2016 edition of Rolling Stone France (RSFR), which has a one and a half page review of the ★ album and an eight-page feature, not to mention a Bowie front cover.
Both the review and the feature were written by Paola Genone, music critic (musicologist) at the French national magazine Madame Figaro and a regular writer for RSFR.
In the feature Paola interviews Donny McCaslin, Ben Monder, Mark Giuliana, Jason Linder and Ryan Keberle about their work on the album.
The ★ album has been given a five stars out of five review and it is the RSFR album of the month (actually for Christmas, Rolling Stone France covers two months, until February 15).
According to Paola the title of the review, "L'homme qui marche", is a reference to Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti’s sculptures "L'homme qui marche" ("The Walking Man").
Paola has kindly translated a portion of the review for us...

    + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

    “Bowie’s astonishing new work comes from the very border between jazz and electronica.

    David Bowie knows how to write music for everybody, but he does it like nobody else…

    In a bold move, ★ is a breath-taking live performance and a culmination of a lifetime of experimentation. Forty-two minutes and seven pieces meet at the crossroad of jazz, electronic improvisation, Kurt Weill’s musical theatre and rock’n’roll. Listening to “Blackstar” or to the lunar reprisal of “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)”, to Bowie’s cantato and all its modulations, to these sax and flute improvisations reminiscent of Ornette Coleman, one’s mind wonders : suddenly, one imagines Bowie and the musicians of ★ playing these songs at the MoMA, against the background of Pollock’s dripping canvases or Picasso’s sculpture Goat's Skull, Bottle and Candle.

    With ”Lazarus”, like a jazz musician reinventing a standard, David Bowie delivers a heart wrenching version, with deliberate urgency. The word « freedom » and the image of this « bluebird » that he sings about, reminds us of the Charles Bukowski poem, “Bluebird” : “There's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out. But I'm too clever, I only let him out at night sometimes”.

    With an ethereal voice, he tackles “Girl Loves Me”, incarnating at once the awkward fragility and the solid determination of Alberto Giacometti’s sculpture « Man Walking »…

    The constraint of language falls apart when confronted by the encyclopaedic sonic, visual and literary scale of Bowie, the key to which we have searched so long and so fruitlessly for..”

Je me suis procuré le Rolling stone avec l'article sur Bowie. Moi je trouve toujours intéressant de découvrir comment il joue, il crée... et d'avoir les témoignages des musiciens avec qui il travaille...


Cet album semble vraiment faire l'unanimité... et j'ai bon espoir que ce soit vraiment "géant"... Blackstar et Lazarus m'enchantent comme il faut et je suis impatient d'entendre la réinterprétation de Sue et 't is is a pity...  qui n'ont pas grand chose à voir avec les 2 autres titres. Il est clairement noté dans l'interview que ces titres sont remaniés... et aussi qu'il y a 6, 7 autres titres non présents sur Blackstar... car les 42 minutes annoncées semblent bien courtes vu la densité de ce nouvel environnement sonore...


Bref !!!! Croisons les doigts que les "previously unreleased" sortirons dans un album bonus... Faire tant de "comm." sur 42 minutes... ça fait cher la minute, non ?
