I haven't heard it myself, but from what I hear, Tin Machine isn't too noteworthy. I'd check out his other albums first, assuming you haven't heard all of them (OUTSIDE!! ).

"Scary Monsters" is my favourite album...

My fav Bowie era is 1976'-84, but I love all of his work...

Just picked up "Low", "Man Who Sold The World" and "Ziggy Stardust."

I've only listened to Low so far, but it's brilliant. The Ziggy CD is broken.

Ziggy is the best Bowie album from start to finish.

I cannot stress that enough.

I've just bought Ziggy. It's pretty good but i've only heard it twice. Moonage Daydream is my favourite so far.

Which album to purchase next then...

You can't go wrong with either really.

Hunky Dory has "Life on Mars?", "Queen Bitch", "Changes", "Quicksand", "Oh! You Pretty Things", songs that are normally hard to beat.

But Ziggy is a better album overall: It's a loose concept album, it rocks harder, plus it's a classic in every sense of the word.

First one I got was Space Oddity, and i was hooked. Then I went back to hunky dory, also excellent. From what 've I heard, you can't go wrong.

Good to know. Thanks for the advice, all


I'll probably be getting pretty much all his 70s albums eventually its just a matter of which ones and when.

How about Seu Jorge's covers for The Life Aquatic?

It truly shows how amazing Bowie's songwriting really is.

All down to personal opinion really, it got absolutely slaughtered by the critics, but I've always liked both LP's, the Live LP was a bit iffy, but the 2 studio albums, imo are really worth listening to. Also, round that time, he wrote & performed a duet with Adrian Belew, called Pretty Pink Rose, try & get a copy of that, its definetly one of Bowie's best rock tracks ever!!!

What do you think of The Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud, from the Space Oddity album, UberBeaver, thats another of my all time favourite Bowie tracks, along with The Cygnet Committee, & Janine, & Letter To Hermione, & Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dased, &.......
