Much has rightly been made of the drama surrounding and embedded into David Bowie s , an album that not only addressed mortality but directly addressed his fans as well. Less has been said suggesting that it stood upon its release, as it does today, as one of Bowie s finest records. Opinions vary, of course, and his back catalog is a considerable tower against which to measure anything, but beginning to end the record is every bit as strong as his 1976 Station to Station, which in many ways is his crowning achievement. It would be as foolish to say that profited from a sympathetic response (the record came out on January 8, 2016, Bowie s 69th birthday) as it would be to deny the fact, because the album was designed to elicit exactly that response. But it was clear in the hours between its Friday release and the news that Bowie was gone the following Sunday that the album was a major statement. Like Station to Station, wraps bravado and vulnerability together without conflict and delivers it with some of the most magnificent singing Bowie put to record. Both records feature strong yet understated musicianship, benefiting from the musicians getting to work within the longest songs Bowie wrote in his career. Both records do much to define an astonishing career.
