    I was tempted for a fiver as well. I spotted it on Music Unlimited but not had a chance to give it a go yet.

    I like bowie a lot but I'm not sure what to make of that last panthers theme or indeed the actual programme.

    It's definitely a bit weird. Not convinced yet, need another few listens.

    Reminds me of Outside. Kinda like it, though it's probably the weirdest thing he's done since, well, Outside.

    On first viewing maybe. But if references all his personas and is quite clever on repeat viewing sans mind blowing.

    Love the sound too, subtle brass, great bass beat and Bowies voice is always ace. Guy could make a sun article sound like poetry to be fair :)

    I think it's crap, but it's Bowie so it gets a pass. He can do whatever he wants.

    Haha, so true!

    I love it, but it's almost perfume levels of glossy bullshit.

    Old people trying to be contemporary always seems desperate. McCartney, Dave Gilmour... It seems tragic.

    He's not trying, he's Bowie. Unless you mean contemporary like the idea catalogue? :)

    hehe, I guess. 70s bowie could rule the world.

    Considering their contributions to music, I think Bowie and McCartney have earned the right to do whatever the fuck they want (I think Gilmore is a bit overrated; there was much better prog rock getting released way back when, Pink Floyd achieved critical mass ahead of a lot of other bands for some unknown reason).

    Any era Bowie does. His last album was ace!

    Young people are filled with emo and fire; this makes them terrible people but great artists. Just my opinion. Old people are empathic and wise and shit at art. This is only compounded if they are rich and content.

    Even when Bowie is crap, he does it in such a way that he's the best at being crap

    OP misspelt Dylan.

    Actually like a bit of Bowie, not as much as Dylan or Floyd, but no denying his talent and impact on music.

    Has Bowie been impactful on music?

    I never got the impression he was incredibly influential musically, more that he just sort of floated above the whole thing, being Bowie.

    @Dirtbox
    Morning Db, surely he has. The amount of bands that doff their boas at him.
    He is not only a "musical genius" but by the power of Labyrinth can change his eye colour at will.
    Most importantly and I have mentioned this before but the first 12" single I bought was the still sublime Modern Love.
    :)

    I don't think there would have been New Wave without him

    Possibly. He might have kicked off that whole genre now I think about it. But I still feel like most of his influence was rooted in style and attitude.

    That was plop, reminded me of Mulligan and O'Hare off the smell of Reeves & Mortimer.

    What was Old Gregg doing showing up at the end too?

    It was just bad.
