It's outstanding—I listen to it all the time.
It is an amazing piece of work. It was hard to listen to in the first 6 months after he died (even though it initially blew me away) but it’s definitely something I revisit quite a bit. The title track is a masterpiece.

Total agreement. And I only picked up the stand-alone 'Lazarus' EP a couple months ago, but those tree outtakes are all great as well. Not sure where they would have fit into the tracklist proper, but they work very well as bonus tracks.

i was totes into it at first but it fell to back of the pack, i need to revisit.

on a semi-related note, I recently bought all the 90s - 00s, which I admit I was never that in to.

Outside and Earthing are excellent but you need to be in the mood for that kind of music, Hours is good but kinda safe, the remixes are good.

I actually a big fan of Black Tie White Noise, but Outside, Earthling, Heathen, and The Next Day are all great as well. ...hours is one that still hasn't gotten its hooks in me—as coffeepotman says, it's pretty safe.

Yeah, it's very monochromatic. The only bummer about his Storytellers episode is that it's from around that time so it's kinda heavy on songs from that album.

Here's a quiz for you fans: https://www.sporcle.com/games/Skelettfe ... y-any-word
205/283

It was harder than I thought, my mind kept going blank, but when it showed the ones I missed, my deficiencies were obviously on albums I don't listen to much like Tonight, DLMD, Pin-Ups, etc.

A couple I'm ashamed to have missed: Art Decade, 1984, Boys Keep Swinging (I typed Boys so I thought I got this one though), Fascination, Future Legend, Dollar Days, John I'm Only Dancing, Buddha of Suburbia.

185, most that I missed were 90s and up, but there were a few gimmies that i was surprised to see i forgot. John, I'm ONly Dancing, Jean Genie, Life on Mars. Then there we 3 i could spell, so theres that. Width of a Circle was NOT on the list! and also if you type "and" or something common a bunch of answers pop up.
