New David Bowie Record Causes Stir...not sure why...

Based on the early reactions, the release of a new single by David Bowie came as a surprise to many music industry watchers and fans. Not sure why people are getting so worked up; based on a few quick listens my initial reaction is Where Are We Now...how can I put this politely...it BLOWS! So much for being polite! Some people just don't know when to hang it up. I had the opportunity to interview Bowie back when he did one of his farewell tours back in the 90s, it was a great show full of his classics and would have been a fitting end to a storied career. But like so many senior citizen rockers, Bowie is back for more. Suppose it could have been worse...he could have gone the Rod Stewart route and released The Thin White Duke Does Standards Volumes 1-5.
