    “Dear World,” and “God Break Down the Door” go quite well together.

HM really grew on me as an album and I like it as a whole, but conceptually it feels like a first draft on an idea that he explored with a two-tiered idea about where both he and society is now much more intriguingly sonically and lyrically on the trilogy.
    I agree with you this trilogy sounds more like a follow up to TDS than HM ever did. HM to me sounds like the "line begins to blur" between HTDA and NIN. I might be alone in that thought, but I'm very happy to see this return to a more abrasive, and twisted sounding world they created here with the trilogy .

    Read this in a very interesting article about Bowie's Lodger :

    Low was, in Bowie’s own words, “Isn’t it great to be on your own, let’s just pull down the blinds and fuck em all”, a celebration of self-pity.
    “Heroes” saw the individual begin to fight back, but still from a passive-aggressive, me-against-the-world standpoint.
    It’s only with Lodger that Bowie realises that to survive in any meaningful sense, he has to engage with society, and with the rest of the human race.

    Reads like an apt description of some other trilogy, isn't it ? But the conclusion here is different.

    That’s good insight. I like the connection.

    My playlist of the trilogy will have these tracks together like this.
