It's a very good album. Watch That Man, Panic in Detroit, Cracked Actor, The Jean Genie ... all great tracks.

Aladdin Sane is great. I agree with pfan, Drive in Saturday is a fun one too.

Fantastic album. Do have Station To Station yet? I pimp that one as much as possible.

I also bought Aladdin Sane last week, its a great album, one of my faves so far.

I bought Pin Ups yesterday, its not bad, its intresting to hear him cover these songs, puts a new twist on to them.

No, see I thought I was done with Bowie... but yesterday his allure became too much. And I mean, all his albums are there, remastered, with full booklets, for $10 each. Amazing stuff.

So I figure I'll get Station to Station as well, umm Lodger, and Space Oddity.... any other solid Bowie records?


As for Alladin Sane, I've listened through once, and it's not bad. I thought Watch That Man was a bit too much Stones Exile stuff for me, but not bad. Drive-in Saturday I liked, the verses to Alladin Sane, Time, Cracked Actor, and the last three. Not sure about the love for Panic in Detroit though. Great title however.

Young Americans has a few great tracks, but it's not as consistent as some of the other albums. I don't put it in that often even though the title track may very well be my favorite song of his.

Fame and his cover of Across the Universe are some of my favorite tracks of his, too - apart from the classic title track.

In my opinion David Bowie albums should be bought in this order:

Ziggy Stardust
Outside
Low
Heroes
Earthling
Scary Monsters
Heathen

Any album after that.

agreed.

Fame was the first 45 single I ever bought, back in 1975 I think Cool that John Lennon sings on that song too. (guitar too I think)
