Uncut awards ★ and WCIBN? best releases of 2016
“At the centre of it all”
Uncut magazine in the UK has awarded David Bowie’s ★ album and the Who Can I Be Now? box set best new release and best archive release of the year, respectively. The Bowie At The Beeb box also makes it into the Top 20 of best archive releases of the year.
Congratulations to all involved in the creation of these albums and thanks to all of you who helped make them such a success.
Elsewhere in the mag there’s an article by David Cavanagh, as outlined by Editor John Mulvey, thus:
[list]As it’s nearly 2017, though, we hope you’ll also allow us a little retrospective contemplation, as we round up the finest albums, archive releases, films and books of the year. There’s a strong piece from David Cavanagh, too, in which he tries to make clear-eyed sense of the year’s appalling losses. “The shock of losing Bowie knocked 2016 entirely off its axis,” he writes. “From that day forward, nobody’s death – not in music, not in sport, not in comedy, not in daily life – would be judged as an individual tragedy.
“Instead it would be viewed as more incontestable proof that 2016 was a year like no other, a year with a hex on it, a year gone rogue.”
Still, our Top 75 new albums list reveals that, in spite of everything, 2016 turned out to be an uncommonly rich year for music.[/b]
The January 2017 issue of Uncut is out now.
