>Neighbor is pumping all kinds of bass one his shitty subwoofer
Do I go over and talk to him like a normal person or do I crank my speakers up to the limit and rattle the floor even worse?
Looking back on it now, Bowie was pretty fucking tacky looking in the 90s. But what did people think of it back then? Did they think it was just typical 90s fashion, or did they realize how bad he looked even back then?
Where the fucking leak at?
Did his death impact the way you appreciated this album? If so, did it do so on a critical level?
I ask because I feel that context is an understated element can add to the impact and therefore ultimate enjoyment of an album.
I've listened to it about 15 or 20 times.
I think sonically it is a 8.5 or 9/10
But when you add in the context of his death, how close he was to his subject matter, and how he was able to capture the feeling of death, it becomes a 10.
Either way it is solid, but every album is better when it is understood on an emotional level and a sonic level.
I think it depends on the permanence of the context. Like if an album is dependent on a particular social or political event or situation, then it can become dated and may even sound tacky years down the road. But in Blackstar's case, David Bowie's never coming back to life, so the album's connection to his death will continue to maintain resonance.
Is this accurate?
