David Bowie
 
just listened to his new single, 'where are we now', from the soon to be released album "next day." beautiful, haunting track that achieves lift around the 2:35 mark. the maestro has done it again. :)

Speak as usual?

As usual?

With all due respect olli, poorly played. I would invite you or anyone to take Bowie's FORTY YEAR body of work into account and attempt to back up such an assertion devoid of knowledge let alone common sense.

Further, I wouldn't confuse 'edgy stylizing' rock vocals with the tenents of e.g. recitative in opera fwiw.

Fast forward to the ending vox at 2:55 onward: can you "on your best day" singin' in the shower? ;) - vvv

Lastly, "Life on Mars" is a Bowie penned and performed piece that's also been covered by no less a "set of pipes" than Barbara Streisand. Heck, I don't see Barbara Streisand covering any Jon Bon Guido self-consciously "sung" exhibitions of pretense and bombast
(should anyone view that as constituting trad. ROCK singing per se)

When artists like Rihanna are trapping journalists on a plane to distract them from the fact that her new album is dreadful, it was nice to see Bowie (and MBV with their new album) stick the new track online and let the frenzy commence.

"Snakes on a Plane"?

ahhh, I try to be as au courant as all get out, but Bowie's never hit a chord for me.

So it goes. I'll have to stick to Neil Diamond.
