#23 – Blackstar by David Bowie

Today’s selection was Bowie’s 25th, and last, album, released just two days before his death in 2016.  It was rare that year to not hear a tribute to him at concerts of all kinds.  I’ve always been a fan of his, but my knowledge of his later albums is pretty limited.  It’s interesting and fitting that, even at the end of his life, David Bowie was still writing such great music.  At times, Blackstar sounds extremely modern, while still having the feel of his classic works.  It’s a fine farewell from one of music’s most enduring personalities.
