Someone mentioned the drumming on this album earlier, right? They weren't lying. This drummer cooks. Whooo. I love it. Honestly reminds me of Philip Selway a bit...to make a reference to someone doing something in the same "rock" world.

👍🏻

While I wouldn't call myself a Bowie super fan (I actually only own 4 albums of his, excluding a hits compilation), this whole album is breathtaking. It's mighty good.

That title track might be my favourite.. Fair effort to make a 10-minute song that is so wonderfully compelling from start to finish.

Absolutely loving Girl Loves Me too.

Incredible. He's ruling the Amazon and ITunes charts too. I can't imagine how many people are being introduced to his music for the first time. Yesterday, Low was at 30 on Amazon USA. That's amazing. Imagine being a mainstream music listener in 2016 and hearing Warszawa for the first time. Or those deranged pop songs, which I found stranger than side 2 back in 1996. Lives will be changed. More people listening to his music and knowing how he lived his life is a great thing.

Impossible to choose just 10 that I would be satisfied with, let alone put them in order. Here are 10 that I wouldn't want to live without, in some semblance of an order:

Life on Mars?
Heroes
Moonage Daydream
Aladdin Sane
Lady Grinning Soul
Stay
Five Years
Golden Years
Teenage Wildlife
The Width of a Circle

This was too hard. Can't believe I left off "Quicksand". Brutally difficult to condense 25 albums into a top 10.
Anyone think they can do a full 1-25 album ranking? I can't.

27 if you want to include the Tin Machine albums, which would rank higher than some of his proper ones.
