David Bowie marches to his own beat in ‘The Next Day’

Fearlessness has always been one of David Bowie’s most admirable — and consistent — qualities as an artist. He continues the tradition on “The Next Day.”

Teaming again with trusted producer Tony Visconti — who worked on classic ’70s releases like “Heroes” as well Bowie’s albums from the early ’00s — Bowie runs the gamut on this “Day,” melding kinetic jams and arty ennui as only he can and ginning up a sort of recombinant DNA of his own history, with songs sounding at once familiar and fresh.
