4 stars Starting from '...hours.." there is Bowies newest musical period, I can name it MATURE. In fact, 30+ yrs Bowie traveled by music styles, and now just came to point of consolidation. Consolidation of many ideas, techniques and life experience.

May be some will be disappointed with this last "trilogy". Yes, there are no avantguarde here anymore. In fact nothing new at all. Just very strong,talented and professional combination of Bowie's life-long musical experience.

Tony Visconty is back, so you at once can understand, what is the basis of new Bowie's sound. Tony Levin/Jordan Rudess pair gave some new heavy prog technique, but not too much. Lisa Germano plays violine ( not sings).

Not too many traces from Eno/ later synth/noise/house period. Well played and produced rock music with strong melodies, classy arrangements. Bowie's voice became more deep, more specific, even a little bit more warm.Main strong point - atmosphere!

Don't try to find new vawes and new shock here. Mature album as a report of musical life lived.
