Maybe the only thing he's done for a very long time? I liked Bowie back in the day but I'm amazed he thinks this is the record to re-emerge with?
It's drab and the video is even more drab! why can't he smile for heck's sake?
No... it's a "Miss" for me...

"David Bowie projects himself in a different way for the new song. Time will tell if he makes a comeback with some concerts,etc!"

A perfectly pleasant and innocuous track but a pale shadow of the great days of 'Hunky Dory' 'Ziggy Stardust' and 'Aladdin Sane'

I think there are some artists who can carry on producing first rate stuff even at a late stage in life - just look at the likes of Alice Cooper and of course The Rolling Stones' - but I don't really think that Bowie is one of them

It sounds very much like a 'swansong' to me but the man for me will always be a very great musical icon - I'll never forget seeing him at the King Georges Hall in Blackburn in 1972 for sixteen shillings - and the place wasn't even full Smile

It's alright but it's a bit bland.
