I definitely like Man Who Sold the World more than Hunky Dory.

Alan Parker played the Rebel Rebel riff too. But I totally agree that Bowie's playing on Diamond Dogs is great. I love that grinding sound he uses. His solo on Sweet Thing (reprise) is amazing.

TMWSTW is my least favorite of Bowie's 70s albums (Running Gun Blues doesn't do much for me), but Mick Ronson fucking slays on it. If it was an 80s, 00s, or 10s release it would be in my top 20 though. Bowie was just too good in the 70s.

I'm surprised that Lodger isn't atop more people's Bowie lists. It's so much fun.

I am not sure that what you are saying is true about Rebel Rebel. I only see him cited for guitar on 1984.

Definitely. But I'll be blasphemous and say that I'm not a big fan of Hunky Dory.

Hunky Dory is very safely my second favorite Bowie album, behind Low.

Same, not really near the top of my favorite Bowie albums.

This is more like it.

Wiki agrees with the album credits. No mention of Parker on that track.

I don't know but intro riff of Rebel Rebel reminds me of Alice Cooper's No More Mr. Nice Guy

Paragraph 7. I've come across this in a few Bowie bios. Album credits used to be pretty spotty.

This is incredibly surprising and pleasing news. I can't think of any song like Lazarus being in the Billboard Top 40 in my lifetime.


and i find this obscenely funny

Keep streaming Lazarus! Though getting in the Top 40 at all was amazing. Blackstar also charted at #78.

Listening to Lodger today, and it is a lot of fun - extremely adventurous. My favorite part is when the instrumentation breaks in DJ and he belts out "time flies when you're having fun" but does so in the most disinterested tone possible. The contrast is amazing.
