Rank the Tracks: David Bowie's ★ [Blackstar] (2016)

Post by Honorio » Sun Jan 07, 2018 10:05 am

Tomorrow it will be the second anniversary of the album release and on Wednesday it will be the second anniversary of David Bowie's death so I can't think of a more perfect timing to rank the tracks of…



David Bowie's "★ [Blackstar]" (2016)

Tracklisting:
01 | ★
02 | 'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore
03 | Lazarus
04 | Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)
05 | Girl Loves Me
06 | Dollar Days
07 | I Can't Give Everything Away

Next week we could check the shape of Jazz that came at the end of the 1950s…

Welcome to Rank the Tracks, letmeintomyzone!
But maybe you forgot to include "'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore" on your list.
By the way, letmeintomyzone, Rockdelux published lists of the best comic books of the year on their end-of-year specials from 1999 and a list of the best comic books of the 2000s. Are you interested in these lists or are you looking only for all-time lists? In case you're interested I can send them to you (but in February-March, I'm too busy right now).

Outside of "Dollar Days" every track is great, in my opinion.

I'd say outside of "Girl Loves Me" every track is great. And "Girl Loves Me" is still quite good.

On the second anniversary of Bowie's death I just want to thank him for his final album, his "parting gift" in Tony Visconti's words. R.I.P.

I was faced with a choice at a difficult age. Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage? But in the back of my head I heard distant feet. Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat.
