To answer your question correctly:

Low

If you can't dig this you don't deserve to listen to Bowie.

How's that for smarmy? Not too bad I think.

Buy the 1967 Space Oddity/ Man Of Words, Man Of Music album.

Of course "Ziggy Stardust" too.

Often overlooked: the brilliant 90s album "Outside".

Come on, man...Low isn't a starter record. My favorite is Station To Station, but I wouldn't recommend that first either.

It's all about Ziggy Stardust.

Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust or Low. You can't go wrong with these!

Hunky Dory. Every initiation into David Bowie should begin with Life On Mars.

that's hardly necessary.

I'd reccomend Low (my favourite Bowie record ever!) Scary Monsters or Hunky Dory. The latter two have his best two songs (Ashes to Ashes and Life on Mars) so you can't go wrong with either of them.

I don't really buy into the whole "starter record" theory. If an album's good, and you have at least decent taste, you'll like it.

And Low is Bowie's best album. So if Justin has good taste, he should enjoy Low.

I started off my Bowie collection with Ziggy and it's still my favourite Bowie album.
