I also just got a bootleg from the Reality tour that I need to check out.
Lodger is easily the worst of the Berlin trilogy, imo.

And what's wrong with instrumentals?

Warszawa, Art Decade, etc

Lodger is one of the few Bowie albums I haven't run into the ground yet, and I am savouring the slow process of working through it's songs over the next month or two

Instrumentals are fine but I'm less likely to want to hear them often.

What I like about Lodger is that it's the most rhythmically complex of the trilogy, and I like the African influence. The sound of the album isn't as insular and I guess it's more to my taste. Heroes has a couple standout tracks (the title song is obviously better than anything on Lodger) but I don't find it as consistent an LP.

I'm waiting on the Berlin trilogy. I want to finish going through the earlier albums and then do all of those at once.

I don't have David Bowie, Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold the World, Diamond Dogs, or Young Americans in whole. Are they all worth it?

David Bowie: No
Space Oddity: Yes, though it's a bit hippie at times.
MWSTW: Definitely
Diamond Dogs: Very underrated
Young Americans: Spotty, but worth it.

I <3 Young Americans since it combines two of my favourite things - Motown soul and David Bowie

Can you hear me?

I have some tracks from each album. His debut seems meh, and if Space Oddity is similar to Hunky Dory, it's probably too folky for me.

Diamond Dogs seems to kick ass (sort of like Aladdin Sane) and Young Americans is nice.

Man Who Sold the World seems interesting to me.

When I Live My Dream is my favorite Pre-Hunky Dory song.

The Man Who Sold the World and Space Oddity are fairly similar, I like both of them.

Diamond Dogs is a little different, not in the way Aladdin Sane is, but it's good.

You can't go wrong with '70-'80 Bowie.

Man Who Sold the World is a mixed bag, but there are some good acoustic uptempo rockers on there. Very T. Rex-y on a couple of cuts, with a bit of Zeppelin.

I'm thinking Diamond Dogs will be the next one I buy. Then I'm not sure between Space Oddity and TMWSTW.

Diamond Dogs was always one of my favorites. I played that album to death back when I first got into Bowie

I have the title track, Rebel Rebel, and 1984. All are fantastic. I want to buy it next.

I love Sweet Thing His voice on that is gorgeous. It still ranks among my all time favorite songs. (In fact it was my favorite song for a long time in the early 80's) And Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family is a bizarre track, but cool.

Diamond Dogs is very, very good, but I think it could have used a better track order. Diamond Dogs--->Sweet Thing? Not great. Sweet Thing (Reprise)--->Rebel Rebel? Even worse.

I love "Oh, You Pretty Little Things," and "Golden Years" they both make me want to dance!

How pretty is Eight Line Poem? It's one of my favourite Bowie songs. Top ten.

Bowie survivor We are doing it. Who wants to run it though?

Imagine the openness, the awesomeness...

Can we just do it up to Scary Monsters? I'm not sure how many people would vote in the Tonight and Never Let Me Down draws.

It should really be '69-'80 Bowie Survivor, because it's a guarantee the winner lies in there, and that's the only votes you'll get substantially.

Just skip the '80s entirely and move onto the '90s. He has some great work that's gone pretty much unnoticed there.

Heathen and Reality from the '00s are extremely good, too.

I just think the problem will be vote numbers when it comes to his 90s and 00s stuff.

I've actually heard great things about Heathen and Reality, and want to get to those after I finish the 70s.
