★ #2 in RS 50 best albums of 2016

on November 28, 2016

 

“I'm a blackstar, way up”

 

Rolling Stone magazine has made David Bowie’s ★ LP their 2nd best album of 2016.

 

Sandwiched between Chance the Rapper (Coloring Book #3), and Beyoncé (Lemonade #1), this is what the magazine has to say about ★

David Bowie showed up on his 69th birthday to drop a surprise masterpiece, let an astonished world puzzle over the music for a couple of days, and then slipped off into the sky.
