Blackstar is David Bowie's 28th studio album and his first since stunning the world in 2013 with the critically acclaimed 'The Next Day'. The release date for Blackstar coincides with David's birthday. The album's title track is the first single, and is accompanied by a short film visual by the acclaimed director Johan Renck. Music from the Blackstar single has been featured in the opening title credits and trailers for the new TV series The Last Panthers. The series, also directed by Johan Renck, began airing across Europe in late October, 2015, and will premiere in the U.S. on SundanceTV in Spring, 2016. In addition to the CD and digital albums, a special die-cut vinyl LP package will also be available.

Sue (Or In a Season of Crime), located right at the centre of the album, is a particular case in point - somehow, it manages to sound like an extract from Outside, if you'd sucked the mid-1990s industrial rock out of Outside and made that album a thousand times weirder than it actually was, finally yielding a sound worthy of the offbeat artcrime universe of that album. Even more unconcerned with marching to anyone else's drum than The Next Day was, Blackstar finds Bowie serving up a sinister poison in decidedly sweet servings.
It is beyond words what David Bowie left us with as his final earthly project. A masterpiece of music, art and ideas.
And BIG kudos to Amazon for packaging this so well, it was 100% unscathed in shipping. Not the tiniest bend or flaw. Pristine! Thank you.
