What's the verdict? I liked the two songs they posted the videos for. If the rest of the album is good this should make for a pretty damn good comeback.

I've given it three listens now and give it a solid thumbs up. If you like the first two singles you should like the rest of the album.

That's what I was hoping you'd say.

And having listened to it twice now, I agree with you. It's really good.

Glad you liked it. I picked up the deluxe edition with the three bonus tracks and have given them a few listens now. The first two tracks are decent if inessential, but the third track is super catchy and would have fit in nicely with the main album. There is also a fourth Japan only bonus track, but I haven't been able to track it down yet.

Gonna have to get this myself soon I think.....:cool:

is THIS the extra Japanese track you are talking about?

^ Yes, thanks for that. I hadn't found it and forgot all about it.

from Rolling Stone:

Not everyone is excited about David Bowie's return: The Catholic League yesterday attacked the singer's new video for "The Next Day," calling it the work of a "switch-hitting, bisexual senior citizen from London" that "is strewn with characteristic excess."

Catholic League president Bill Donohue made his comments in a statement posted on the group's website. Bowie wrote and Floria Sigismondi directed the video, which features Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard. The clip shows priests frolicking with scantily clad women in a nightclub where a Christ-like singer, played by Bowie, is performing. One of the women, played by Cotillard, develops stigmata, and Bowie disappears in a wink, presumably to ascend into heaven.

"In short, the video reflects the artist – it is a mess," Donohue wrote, noting Bowie's statements over the years about various faiths and dogmas demonstrate the singer "is nothing if not confused about religion."

The Catholic League and Donohue have criticized entertainers for insufficient piety before, including Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, Jamie Foxx and Bill Maher.

GOOD. The video is great.

I look forward to the day when nobody gives a shit what the Catholic (or any other church) has to say about popular music, film, or lifestyles. Stick with what you know, Catholic League...and David Bowie ain't it.
