Just listened to Scary Monsters and Heathen again today for the first time in a while, and only realized after that they were both Visconti-produced, and the latter the first time they had collaborated again since the former, after over 20 years.

I still give the edge to Heathen, Bowie's voice is so fucking good on it, plus you have a great Pixies cover, Pete Townshend and Dave Grohl as guests., and while this isn't very important I love the photography and artwork.

i've got eight Bowie albums and the only thing i know is that i rate Lodger #8, to laz's chagrin. the rest i wouldn't have a fucking clue how to order.

A New Career in a New Town is my favourite Bowie song though.

i also heard that he and Keith Richards had sex.

Don't forget Diamond Dogs. It's one of my favorites, and, I feel, one of his more underrated records here. Rebel Rebel, Sweet Thing, 1984, Big Brother, Rock And Roll With Me

That's a cover, so I guess that someone else is to blame for that one.

Yeah, it's on an album of covers, so you couldn't really call it "Bowie's song".
