Justin Timberlake Debuts #1 at iTunes, David Bowie 'The Next Day' #4

  |   Comments

It's a cruel and stupid world we live in when a new record from Justin Timberlake can top a new album from David Bowie and that, boys and girls, is where we are in the here and now. Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience debuts at #1 despite bowie.jpgmixed reviews and Bowie's The Next Day comes in at #4 at the iTunes Music Store, with Luke Bryan and Imagine Dragons separating them and Bon Jovi's What About Now rounding out the Top 5. I hate you all just a little more right now than I did before. My review of the new Bowie record is nearly complete and I will illustrate at length why this is a warcrime.

Speaking of atrocities, Ryan Lewis and Macklemore still have the #1 song with the weapons-grade insipid "Thrift Shop," followd by singles from Bruno Mars, Rihanna, the aforementioned Timberlake, and Pink. Yes, you read that right. Pink also has a Top 5 single and I don't know why.

All I can say is thank God we have new music coming from The National in May. In the meantime, make our world a better place; go buy the new David Bowie record and wait for me to explain to you how good it is or go read my review of Johnny Marr's The Messenger and buy a copy of that.
