It changes from day to day. These aren't the 10 commandments. But maybe they are.

1. Beatles - Abbey Road
2. Radiohead - OK Computer
3. U2 - Zooropa
4. Steely Dan - Aja
5. Led Zeppelin - Houses Of The Holy
6. Pink Floyd - Animals
7. David Bowie - Station To Station
8. Beck - Sea Change
9. The Kinks - Village Green Preservation Society
10. REM - Automatic For The People

I don't know why, but I'm liking Lodger more each time I hear it. I definitely like it better than Heroes, and while I recognize Low as the greater achievement, I find Lodger a more pleasurable listening experience. Yassassin!

Plus, no instrumentals.

I also just got a bootleg from the Reality tour that I need to check out.

Got Reality in the car stereo this week. Really enjoying it after not giving it a whirl in a while. Still think Days is my fave.

Lodger is easily the worst of the Berlin trilogy, imo.

And what's wrong with instrumentals?

Warszawa, Art Decade, etc

Lodger is one of the few Bowie albums I haven't run into the ground yet, and I am savouring the slow process of working through it's songs over the next month or two

Instrumentals are fine but I'm less likely to want to hear them often.

What I like about Lodger is that it's the most rhythmically complex of the trilogy, and I like the African influence. The sound of the album isn't as insular and I guess it's more to my taste. Heroes has a couple standout tracks (the title song is obviously better than anything on Lodger) but I don't find it as consistent an LP.

I'm waiting on the Berlin trilogy. I want to finish going through the earlier albums and then do all of those at once.

I don't have David Bowie, Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold the World, Diamond Dogs, or Young Americans in whole. Are they all worth it?

David Bowie: No
Space Oddity: Yes, though it's a bit hippie at times.
MWSTW: Definitely
Diamond Dogs: Very underrated
Young Americans: Spotty, but worth it.

I <3 Young Americans since it combines two of my favourite things - Motown soul and David Bowie

Can you hear me?

I have some tracks from each album. His debut seems meh, and if Space Oddity is similar to Hunky Dory, it's probably too folky for me.

Diamond Dogs seems to kick ass (sort of like Aladdin Sane) and Young Americans is nice.

Man Who Sold the World seems interesting to me.

When I Live My Dream is my favorite Pre-Hunky Dory song.

The Man Who Sold the World and Space Oddity are fairly similar, I like both of them.

Diamond Dogs is a little different, not in the way Aladdin Sane is, but it's good.

You can't go wrong with '70-'80 Bowie.

Man Who Sold the World is a mixed bag, but there are some good acoustic uptempo rockers on there. Very T. Rex-y on a couple of cuts, with a bit of Zeppelin.

I'm thinking Diamond Dogs will be the next one I buy. Then I'm not sure between Space Oddity and TMWSTW.
