Favorite Albums of 2013 – #18: David Bowie

18. David Bowie – The Next Day

Bowie surprised us this year announcing an album on his own 66th birthday with no other media buildup. It’s been 10 years since his last and that distance definitely made our hearts fonder. He sounds older on The Next Day with his vocals revealing his age, but the music is as good as anything released since Let’s Dance. He wanted to evoke the days of Ziggy Stardust and nearly succeeds on a few songs especially the “spacey” tunes. This is a definitely a needed addition to any Bowie fan’s collection.

Favorite songs: “Love Is Lost” | “I’d Rather Be High” | “(You Will) Set the World on Fire”

The entire list… so far.
