No, see I thought I was done with Bowie... but yesterday his allure became too much. And I mean, all his albums are there, remastered, with full booklets, for $10 each. Amazing stuff.

So I figure I'll get Station to Station as well, umm Lodger, and Space Oddity.... any other solid Bowie records?


As for Alladin Sane, I've listened through once, and it's not bad. I thought Watch That Man was a bit too much Stones Exile stuff for me, but not bad. Drive-in Saturday I liked, the verses to Alladin Sane, Time, Cracked Actor, and the last three. Not sure about the love for Panic in Detroit though. Great title however.

Young Americans has a few great tracks, but it's not as consistent as some of the other albums. I don't put it in that often even though the title track may very well be my favorite song of his.

Fame and his cover of Across the Universe are some of my favorite tracks of his, too - apart from the classic title track.

In my opinion David Bowie albums should be bought in this order:

Ziggy Stardust
Outside
Low
Heroes
Earthling
Scary Monsters
Heathen

Any album after that.

agreed.

Fame was the first 45 single I ever bought, back in 1975 I think Cool that John Lennon sings on that song too. (guitar too I think)

Aladdin Sane growing on me already... Watch That Man is insanely catchy, especially the chorus. Panic in Detroit and The Prettiest Star are my two least fav so far.

Lady Grinning Soul

Panic in Detroit is so damn good. Sucks that you don't like it as much as the rest.

The Prettiest Star is indeed the worst song on Aladdin Sane.

Panic In Detroit is incredible though.

Aladdin Sane is an odd album. It was really hit-or-miss for me the first time I heard it and I've grown to like it more now.

The Prettiest Star isn't that bad. It is actually pretty good. I hate the intro though.

This album is an easy 9/10. The only songs that don't blow me away are LSTNT and Prettiest Star.

Everyone loves that piano solo, but I hate it.

I can understand why you would think that, but include me with everyone else who loves it.
