Non-linear storyline for the fail. A semi-interesting idea screwed up by rare pretentiousness by Bowie.

Not a bad album, some good tracks in there.

I prefer it to Station to Station, actually, but I'm still not the biggest fan of it.

The title track, however, is loads of awesome.

Ditto. Color me unimpressed.

Fourth or fifth for me. I enjoy that album, just not as much as some others.

I think that's how a lot of people feel.

Non-linear storylines can work for film, since you know, it's a visual medium, but how anyone can think it will work in the album format absolutely baffles me.

Surprisingly, Bowie's step into the pretension pond came when he was involved with David Lynch. See how that works?

I've spent the last hour plus reading this thread
I skimmed most of the reviews (comments) unless "noted".
Wow. I need a computer break. I was supposed to be working this last hour
I'll be following along when I return.

Didn't submit a list for this, though I think hubby did. I'm not a Bowie fan, that's fo sho.

\carry on!

#25 - David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars



No arguments here, though I prefer a couple of his albums to this.

Quote:
Another alarming case of the overrating pest. Only Mick Ronson is to be saved here. Nothing to do with the best Bowie as you can find in his period from David Live to Lodger. Overrated
Quote:
Four tracks on this record, "Starman", "Lady Stardust", "Ziggy Stardust", and of course "Rock'n Roll Suicide", are surely among Bowie's best songs ever. But the rest is unfortunately much weaker (and partly even unbearable, I think). That really shouldn't be for a RYM top-twenty contender.

Try Hunky Dory for a much more consistent one.
Quote:
David Bowie can most accurately be described as 'overrated'. Although his cocky 'concepts', stage antics and esoteric flirtations are interesting and even vaguely enjoyable..... the music doesn't do it.
Quote:
David Bowie is one of these artists either you really like or you wonder what the big fuss is. I'm in the fuss group. I have never been into groups where guys act or dress up like girls.Here, he is at his glam and drag best, but for me no thanks.

Okay I'm off to a holiday party with work people! which means I will not be at a computer for another 2 hrs at least. I will have to catch the rest of this thread later.

Ziggy was on my expanded list, but it didn't make the final cut since I already had three Bowie albums.

Ziggy..., yes!

I'm thinking this will be the last Bowie album.
