“The stars are never far away”

The latest NME magazine (which we told you about a couple of days ago), is now widely available in all good NME-stocking stores, not to mention all the digital opportunities there are to purchase a copy.

Britain’s favourite music weekly has devoted two pages to an 8 out of 10 review by Emily Mackay of The Next Day, this is on top of five pages on the creation of the album.

Here‘s an edited excerpt from the conclusion.

Above all, this album is about songcraft. Rather than reinventing Bowie, it absorbs is past and moves on, hungry for more.

It demands that you listen to it in the moment, not that you give it an easy ride because this is the man who made “Heroes”; and its songs more than live up to that demand.

With Bowie sounding like he‘s having too much fun to worry about the dying of any light, it seems like there‘s many more next days to come.
