1. Outside (1995)
"Heroes" (1977)
Earthling (1997)
Lodger (1979)
Aladdin Sane (1973)
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust... (1972)
The Man Who Sold The World (1970)

Re: Bowie's Albums: Your Order Of Preference new [re: twister]  

Interesting to see how well "Heroes" does in tis thread. It usually is not very much talked about on this board, "Low", "Diamond Dogs", "Outside", "Ziggy Stardust" and even "NLMD" seem to get much more attention among the posting TWers. Maybe that is cause the quality of this grand masterpiece is beyond discussion.

My personal list (marks from 1 - 6, need a wider range):

1. Ziggy Stardust
2. Hunky Dory
3. Low
4. Aladdin Sane
5. Diamond Dogs
6. Heroes
7. Station To Station
8. Space Oddity
9. The Man Who
Sold The World
10. Scary Monsters
11. Lodger
12. Earthling
13. Buddha Of
Suburbia
14. Young
Americans
15. Hours
16. Let`s Dance
17.Pin Ups
18. David Bowie
19. BTWN
20. Tin Machine
21. NLMD
22. Outside
23. Tin Machine II





24. Tonight

Re: Bowie's Albums: Your Order Of Preference new [re: twister]  

Okay you ask the impossible, but here is my choice as 11.46 21st March 2001 (ask me again tomorrow!)

1. Ziggy Stardust (1972)
2. Diamond Dogs (1974)
3. Hunky Dory (1971)
4. Scary Monsters (1980)
5. Lodger (1979)
6. Space Oddity (1969)
7. Aladdin Sane (1973)
8. Young Americans (1975)
9. David Bowie (1967)
10. The Man Who Sold The World (1970)
11. Low (1977)
12. 1. Outside (1995)
13. "Heroes" (1977)
14. 'Hours...' (1999)
15. Station To Station (1976)
16. Pin Ups (1973)
17. The Buddha Of Suburbia (1993)
18. Let's Dance (1983)
19. Tin Machine (1989)
20. Tonight (1984)
21. Never Let Me Down (1987)
22. Tin Machine II (1991)
23. Earthling (1997)
24. Black Tie White Noise (1993)

What surprises me are the low rankings for Low and heroes - I recognise them for being brilliant records, but they are not the first that I reach for when i want a good dose of Bowie
Earthling doesn't do anything for me yet - And I've never got into BTWN, to me its an inferior NLMD!

"Don't analyse, don't go that way" new [re: nigelp]  

In reply to:

my choice as 11.46 21st March 2001 (ask me again tomorrow!)


Y'know, if mister threadstarter twister would ask me again tomorrow, my list would pretty much be the same. The lower rank would differ from time to time, but the top region is quite definite for me. I think that after spending much time on TW the last two years, reading and writing much about various albums, I made my mind up about what my preferences are. I know I like the influences of guitar work (see SM and Earthling in my top) and the brilliance of good lyrics (Hunky Dory and again SM). My list won't change drastically anymore, only for new entries.

I don't think Toy would have ranked very high on my list. I wonder what a new Visconti-Fripp album will do.
