Interesting facts about Life on Mars? and Starman.

I think Bowie did pretty well for himself though.

I've already converted several of my friends in to Bowie fans I live with 14 other girls in a unit and we've decided that he's basically our "mascot".

I've been listening to Ziggy a lot, but overall I prefer Space Oddity. I think Moonage Daydream and Suffrigate City are awesome songs, but I like the feel of Space Oddity better. There's a kind of innocent (naive?), laid back feeling to it. Ziggy is a bit rougher.

Maybe those two albums are like his version of Songs of Innocence / Songs of Experience by Blake. For those that wonder why people major in Engish: That's what you use an English degree for.

Low
Scary Monsters
Hunky Dory

If you don't yet own all three of those albums...head to your local CD store right this second and correct this great injustice.

I have Low, I'm actually listening to Hunky Dory now. I'll check out Scary Monsters some time.

Scary Monsters is probably my favorite Bowie album actually. Off the wall and rockin. Nearly perfect. "Teenage Wildlife" = Penultimate Bowie Song

Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed for the win.

So I'm guessing after buying Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust I should go for Scary Monsters next? Or Aladdin Sane?

You can't really go wrong with either. I definitely prefer Scary Monsters though. I feel it's a more satisfying album in the long run. Aladdin Sane is definitely more accessible though, and would definitely be a logical progression coming off Hunky Dory and Ziggy.

How about "Heroes" or Low?

Get Aladdin Sane if you're a big Ziggy fan.

Get Scary Monsters if you like the more "rock" side of Bowie (wasn't Robert Fripp on this album? I think he was).

Get Low if you want something a bit more experimental.

Get Heroes if you want something a little more experimental, but also somewhat grounded (aka THE AMAZING TITLE TRACK THAT IS POSSIBLY BOWIE'S BEST SONG EVER).

Get Station to Station if you like long Bowie songs (the title track, his longest song, is another easy contender for his very best).

And umm....get Outside if you're into serial killers.
