Hell, we should stretch it back to '69 with Space Oddity. That album's really grown on me recently.

Young Americans is his only '70s album that isn't that great, besides the immortal title track.

Space Oddity's fantastic, I love it. One of my three favorite Bowie albums.

You'll hear everything from the Stones (in both music and a complete cover), to Detroit panic, to cabaret, to how the Earth relearns how to copulate by watching 70s pornos.

The man's a fucking genius.

How about his song titles?

Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed
Up the Hill Backwards
Lady Grinning Soul
Rock 'n' Roll Suicide

I just love it.

I agree Aladdin Sane is just fantastic, Cracked actor is an awesome song.

And panic in dertiot is just so fricken cool

I can never pick me favourite Bowie album. It's just too hard. All I know is it's not Lodger, and it's probably not "Heroes". That's all I know.

Watch That Man is awesome, geez he could write a hook.

David Bowie Misheard Lyrics

If you've got 10 minutes to kill, this might provide a few laughs

Haven't read the entire thread, but how is David live? Has anyone here seen him in concert before?

So I'm a little embarrassed to say so, but I knew very little about David Bowie before September. I actually knew a handful of songs, but that's about it.

Strange, then, that it took seeing U2 in concert for me to really become intrigued by him. I picked up Space Oddity (the album) and loved it. I've read a few pages of this thread, but what other albums do you guys recommend? I gather Low and Ziggy are pretty well regarded. What else?

You truly cannot go wrong with any of his '70s albums, extending out to his '80 release Scary Monsters.

I'd recommend Hunky Dory, Station to Station, and Aladdin Sane after you hit the two that you mentioned.

Low and Scary Monsters are my favorites. But the ones LMP mentioned are all essential as well. Laz is a big fan of Lodger as well.

God I love with this thread gets bumped.

I personally believe Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane are really very good.

As others have said, all his '70's material is essential, but I also rate both Tin Machine albums very highly, esp, the first, also "Hours" from 1999, and 2002's Heathen are well worth a listen, and, even though Tonight was one of his worst efforts, the opening track, Loving The Alien is pure Bowie gold.
Christ, nearly forgot, 1993's Buddha Of Suburbia, criminally overlooked, but another classic!
