There are far too many Bowie albums I've either never heard or only listened to once, so I'm not going to try to make any top 10 lists. I hate being the person who didnt know much past Honky Dory, Ziggy, Low and Aladdin Sane until after the guy died, but sadly, I am that person.

Pin Ups is a lot of fun. Slight but enjoyable.

Buddha of Suburbia is excellent, if a little like yuppie supper club music in spots. It was a very personal record, and one of Bowie's favorites, if not his favorite. Pin-Ups is good if only for the production and tightness of the band. Black Tie is ok. Tonight gas two good songs (loving the alien and blue Jean), and the rest is horrible. Never let me down is the worst record ever made, and tin machine are irredeemable. It boggles the mind how Bowie became so, so bad. Oh, and Hours is completely forgettable. Not awful, but not good.

Hollow Island is way off the mark on Tin Machine, particularly the first album. A much-needed rejuvenation after a career low point, not very arty or conceptual but a lot of energy. Some good blues rock and even a hint of the grunge sound soon to become popular (I Can't Read). And the lyrics are more political than usual for Bowie. A little long but the first half is stellar.

Tin machine lyrics are OK, but they were a very monotonous band. It was essential to Bowie's recovery, though. He didn't seem to have a clear purpose until Buddha of Suburbia, and he was "back" from then on, intent-wise anyway. Still, it wouldn't have happened without Tin Machine. They made him want to play again. Then he did the soulless Sound&Vision tour and put TM2 on the back burner. THEN he tried to be a commercial force again...he had a pretty rough time 83-93.

Hrm, the outfit Bowie wore in the Lazarus video is very similar to the outfit he wore for the Station to Station photo shoot.

Can't really disagree about NLMD, although Time Will Crawl is a great track, & some of the B-sides from that LPs singles are well worth a listen, especially Julie, but Tin Machine is definitely worth a listen to anyone who hasn't heard either album before, both, imo, contain some classics, Prisoner Of Love from the first is regularly on any Bowie playlist I make, as is One Shot, You Belong In Rock 'n' Roll, Shopping For Girls, Goodbye Mr. Ed,....
And as for Hours, along with Space oddity his most under rated album. IMO.
