David Bowie survivor - Diamond Dogs

David Bowie's time-bending cover of The National's Sorrow joins us in the playoffs.

Now we're up to Diamond Dogs, the last of Bowie's Ziggy/glam work.

Not owning the album, I've never seen this full cover



Vote for your THREE favourites, somehow, there are three songs from here going through.

It's a pretty decent record. Considering it only needed two votes to get three songs, I think that placement is fair.

I'm voting for Diamond Dogs and Rebel Rebel, as will most others. The third vote goes to Sweet Thing, which was so nice we got it twice.

I like this album more than some of his more acclaimed efforts from the 70s. The Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (Reprise) medley is incredible.

Sweet Thing and Rebel Rebel are both fantastic. I guess Diamond Dogs gets the third slot by default, as I don't find anything else on the album particularly interesting.

I just listened to this again today. Can't even remember most of it. I think I liked Big Brother a lot. Giving one of my votes to that.

First time I've ever heard, I really enjoyed it. Rebel Rebel obviously gets a vote, but I'm definitely giving one to Big Brother, that song was great.

this is one of my top three bowie albums. it's the first one i ever heard (my mom had the lp so i've grown up with it) so it's partially nostalgia, but it's mostly because i love it.

It should be pretty safe right now, but Cobbler voted for the fucking reprise instead.

Classic.

In retrospect, I should have voted for Chant of the Ever-Circling Skeletal Family, just on the basis of the name.
