I'm loving the album too - and love the way it's smashing the album charts!

Song's OK, nothing special. Pretty mournful ballad for a comeback.
I think it's incredibly dull. What a let down. But then again Bowie stopped making decent albums after Scary Monsters.

Have you heard the whole album?

It's not as good as Heathen or Reality, but it's still pretty special. Some people are determined to believe he hasn't been any good since Scary Monsters, yet his next album after featured three of his most iconic singles...

That's true, but can you really say the 'Let's Dance' album is on par with 'Scary Monsters' or his 70s classics? Singles aside, I'd say the album is very patchy - and he only got worse on his next 2 albums. He has released some great stuff since, and made a few really strong albums, but 'Scary Monsters' is still his last truly great album as far as I'm concerned.

As for the new album, I'd say it's more consistent than 'Reality' (though I do really like that album) and probably about as good as 'Heathen' overall, which is one of my favourite post-'Scary Monsters' Bowie albums. I love that 'The Next Day' is of a similar quality as his previous two releases despite the 10 year gap.

Although Let's Dance isn't as good as Scary Monsters, it's still a fine album. Some say his classic run of albums were from Hunky Dory to Scary Monsters, but for me it's from The Man Who Sold The World to Let's Dance.

After listening to The Next Day for a long enough period, I can say that I think some people are overrating it. It's good, but I firmly believe both Heathen and Reality are better.

It's more immediate than both those albums...not sure. The track Heathen (The Rays) is probably better than anything on The Next Day. Slip Away and Cactus are great too. I love the production on that album. Don't know Reality as well.

I hope it's just a promo single. I don't think people will buy it as a single, but it may shift even more albums.
