Everyone must hear Ziggy Stardust at least once. Don't even attempt to overthink this.

Yeah, there's a lot to go for. What songs from the Best Of do you like/not like?

This may sound funny but I love his song called Jump They Say from 1993's Black Tie White Noise. It may be one of my top favs of his.
Jump They Say's awesome. Tin Machine -> Outside gets pretty overlooked amongst the rest of his catalogue.

If you ask me, Ziggy, Station to Station, and Low are all must-haves. I also highly recommend Aladdin Sane and Space Oddity.

I've not heard most of it, but Outside is a quality album. Not as good as his 70s stuff, but still an interesting piece.

Outside definitely brings the goods, but the concept behind it is ridiculous. Kind of reminds me of other things.

I think the whole segue thing was absurd, but I thought the concept was unique. I don't like that it's non-linear, though, makes the whole thing too aimless.

Are you asking me? If so, I cannot stand All The Young Dudes, Diamond Dogs and sometimes Young Americans. Also, Fame is kinda boring. And this is only disc 1.

That's what doesn't work for me: the non-linear storyline.

How the fuck can you do that well in music form? ...Even if you are David Bowie.

Did Outside have Little Wonder? I remember enjoying that song in the 90s.

Earthling's got Little Wonder and I'm Afraid of Americans.

Yeah, you.

All the Young Dudes is non-album, Diamond Dogs is from Diamond Dogs, and both Young Americans and Fame are from Young Americans.

Young Americans is classic, though, and Laz most likely thinks you're from hell or something.

I woudn't be surprised. Laz has strong opinions (disguised as facts)!

But yeah, that just confirms that you wouldn't like Young Americans too much. Really not too much of his material you're disliking there.
