4 stars 4.25: The final album by Bowie, was intended to be the swan song (a belief that the swan before die they sing a beautiful song, and in this context will be the last effort and gesture for the fans by Bowie) before his dead, as he described it would be nothing that he have done previously and it certainly accomplish that. Two days after his release he died by cancer, but he knew that the album was critically acclaimed and a commercially success. It begins with a very progressive song, and really good it is speaking about his actual dead, a theme that will be touched in mostly all the album. In general the album conserves the Bowie style of using very deep meaning and metaphorical lyrics. Musically it is a very jazzy and progressive album, it has a lot of elements never seen by Bowie. However, something that I noticed, is that his voice and enthusiasm was not at his best moment for obvious reasons, but was a good performance in general. A very good album that incorporate mostly jazz and some prog elements that any prog listener will enjoy.
