Sound and Vision.

Always Crashing, Be My Wife, Subterraneans, and Speed of Life are my other picks.

Listening to Low now... and I'll give the Best Of another spin too. Btw, Bowie fans! Got a question! At the risk of sounding silly... is Ziggy Stardust like his Joshua Tree and Low like his Achtung Baby? I have a feeling if I get Ziggy as the next album, I will like it. I already do like some songs from it.

Ziggy is considered the premiere glam rock album. Not sure how the U2 comparison works considering the genres. U2 has more or less been steady in being an alternative rock band, whereas Bowie's moved from folk/pop to glam to funk to art rock to dance to industrial to electronic and back to just rock.

Like Philly said, Bowie's tread so many genres that the comparison isn't too apt. It's hard to compare Ziggy and Low, but it's also hard to compare Ziggy to Scary Monsters or Outside or Space Oddity or Young Americans, you know?

He's got a wide selection of material that you're bound to like. You may really like his poppy '80s stuff, too.

How about this? Popularity and Accessibility wise, aren't Ziggy and Low the most popular of Bowie's albums like JT & AB are for U2? Maybe I'm wrong.

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.

Yeah, that's probably an accurate way of putting it.

I'd say Bowie in the 70s was more consistent than U2 ever was. From Space Oddity to Scary Monsters, the only two albums worth skipping are The Man Who Sold the World and Young Americans.
