My absolutest favoritest bestest Bowie song from his greatestest album. Maybe it's more Eno than David, but still...

Ziggy is rather overrated. It's pretty generic rock to me, and bears little of Bowie's unique, genre busting stamp. The songs are good, but I like DB better when he's pushing the envelope and doing something more interesting musically.

Dang. Heroes isn't even close to Low standards for me, and definitely not Ziggy.

Regardless, I voted for it.

Great to see some support for it! I do now know that I'll be going for it when Low comes around.

And I also think Low >>>>>> Heroes, but I also think Ziggy > Low. Not by heaps though.

Anyone else LOVE Sons of the silent Age? The vocals in the verses are what do it for me. 21 voters too, which is great, though who knows who'll vote when the rounds come around. the only problem with these things is there isn't great amounts of discussion, as is what's happening in the pf survivor.

9th and 10th: 2 more spots
11th and 12th: 1 more spot
If 12th place remains a tie, I'm going to make 8th place 2 spots and and 1 spot for a thirteenth album. Fair? I think so.

Same, it's as good of a record as anything he made in the '70s.

the only thing that kind of sucks here is that rounds like Ziggy, Low etc wont be as fun as they're'll be few rounds.
