As austere and coldly beautiful as a late Stevens poem, this album. I listened it to last week driving home from work.

That's as beautiful as it is true, re Stevens. I need to spin this in the car, at night, too.

Listening for the first time in a while now. Still so chilling and awe-inspiring. The final WOO!'s in Tis a Pity. Can't make it thru Lazarus.

every time Bowie comes in with that baritone guitar, especially in the last minute (GA-RUNG) -- it's like bells in a churchyard.

Listened to it yesterday, and it more than hold up. I love how the horns are like a distorted version of the Let's Dance ones.

Garson's an interesting guy but...yeah.

In the Jones oral bio, Garson's attitude is, "Well, I never did drugs, ever, and...well, David didn't call me for years. Then he acted weird when I'd say something."

I'm not one for tributes or covers etc, but this (Dutch, soz) sounds promising: a live tribute and reinterpretation of Blackstar at the Holland Festival, with vocals by Laetitia Sadier, Anna Calvi and Anja Plaschg (Soap&Skin). The newly arranged music will be performed by stargaze, a classical ensemble that I only know because they performed with Owen Pallett at Berghain some years ago.
