For some reason I'm just not a big fan of this article at all. David Bowie is a re-inventor! He's not going to continuously repeat the same things over and over. That would be boring and, if I may quote something, Bowie did once say something along the lines of, "I don't know where I'm going, but I promise IT WON'T BE BORING!" He loves to experiment with new things and test the waters. He doesn't do this solely for his audience, but for him as well, and most off all! I love that. I hope he keeps doing what makes him happy and who cares if it's not like something from the past!

Bowie is historically a re-inventor of himself, but his Heathen and Reality albums are similar in style, as is the unreleased "toy" album. The two songs from The Next Day sound like they could be tracks from any of these three previous albums.
I think he has found a sound that is uniquely his, and he's sticking closely to it. I love it.
