No one really knew if Bowie’s dramatic comeback album The Next Day would be a one off, or the start of a new era from the otherwise reclusive legend. This new album (titled as a symbol, pronounced as Blackstar) kind of evades both possibilities. He’s certainly got more he wants to give, but nothing that follows on in the style of its bombastic, more satisfying predecessor.
