For some reason, AMG does not have icons for 3 1/2 stars. I would have awarded this to Pin Ups, Space Oddity, Black Tie White Noise and Tin Machine 2. And it may have persuaded me to place an extra half star on the bottom three.

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

15. Hours

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)

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!

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.

Preference: Intermediate Results new [re: schizophrenic]  

I have tried to figure oķt whose leading in an olympic fashion: Only top 3 places count, 3 points for place one, 2 for two, one for three. Same number of points, the higher number of top rankings marks the winner. Here are the results so far:

1) Outside 33
2) Low 31
3) Ziggy / Hunky Dory 19 (exactly the same points and rankings)
5) Scary Monsters 19
6) Diamond Dogs 18
7) Heroes 14
8) Station to Station 12
9) Lodger 6
10) Buddha 3
11) Tin Machine II 3
12) The Man Who 2
13) Aladdin / Earthling 1

I did this very quickly so if anyone finds any mistakes, I am sorry. I only counted Šlbums that got at least one top three position.

3. ďHeroesĒ [Ditto. Only got this one a few days ago, so I still need to wait for a better judgement. I might end up putting it above Low, only because I get a better feel for it.]
4. Earthling [Lots of good songs that I can really get into and just generally cool. Great cover, too.]
5. Lodger [Obviously I donít think this is as good as his earlier Berlin albums but still pretty good. If itíd had some instrumentals it probably wouldíve beaten Earthling.]
6. The Man Who Sold The World [Listening to this at the moment, actually. Some great songs, others more average but better than the average ones on Aladdin Sane.]
7. Aladdin Sane [Big let downs are The Prettiest Star, Letís Spend The Night Together and The Jean Geanie, especially being flanked by Time and Lady Grinning Soul. Excellent title song, though.]
8. Heathen [Took a few listens to get into it but now I really like it. A Better Future is a bit of a disappointment, though.]
9. Space Oddity [Cygnet Committee, Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud, Memory Of A Free Festival - what more can I say?]
10. David Bowie [Actually the very first Bowie album I bought. Having the Deram bonus tracks helped.]
11. Station To Station [Iíd probably like this one better with the two live tracks but, as it is, itís pretty good. The odd tracks are the best.]
12. The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars [Iíve always thought this was a bit overrated but itís not that bad.]
13. ĎHoursÖí [Not everyoneís favourite, I know, but I was just getting into Bowie when this came out so I canít really hate it. The live tracks from this on the BBC Radio CD are outstanding.]
14. Black Tie White Noise [A few good tracks and I was really into it when I first bought it but Iíve found I donít listen to it much anymore.]
15. Tin Machine [Again, really used to like it and it does have a few songs I really like but it isnít Bowie at his best. At least that can be partially excused by his collaboration with others but stillÖ]
16. Labyrinth [Ignoring Trevor Jonesís instrumentals, thereís not much on this but itís good for what it is. Within You would have to be one of his best songs of that decade - but thatís not a hard achievement considering.]
17. Tonight [I can get into the mood for this one but, really, the only outstanding song is Loving The Alien, until This Is Not America as the first bonus track.]
18. Letís Dance [Title song isnít too bad, Criminal World is quite good and I really like Ricochet for its off-beat feeling. A few more songs like that and the í80s wouldnít have been too bad. Best track is probably the bonus, though, Under Pressure, hence its position in last place.]

Not included:
Hunky Dory [Although Iíve heard most of the tracks on this I don't have the actual album so I thought it better to leave it out completely. I expect itíd rate quite highly, though, possibly replacing Lodger for fifth place.]
Pinups [Listened to this a while back but donít know it well enough to comment. Not top 10 stuff.]
Diamond Dogs [A lot of good things are said about this but the only songs from it that I know are Rebel, Rebel - which I donít really like - and the title track - and Iíve only heard Beckís version.]
Young Americans [Again, only two songs Iíve heard: the title track - which isnít all that great - and Fame, which is.]
Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) [Ashes To Ashes is definitely one of his best ever songs but Iíve only heard that and Fashion, which is a good song.]
Never Let Me Down [Need I even comment?]
Tin Machine II [Only know One Shot but it probably wouldnít rate much higher than the first.]
The Buddha Of Suburbia [Iím really curious about this one, especially because of the fact it comes between BTWN and Outside.]

This is all a bit too hard, and I'm chickening out. On my last list I have Station To Station at #12 and it would be sitting just as comfortably in the top three.

I will say that Heathen has moved up two slots to #23 though. And also...

10. Space Oddity (1969)
11. Young Americans (1975)
12. Station To Station (1976)


This stands solid as my top twelve, though the order could be re-worked endlessly and I'd never be happy with it.

a judgement made can never bend new [re: twister]  

I've tried to rank the albums based on my overall enjoyment across the years I've owned them, rather than my current preference. There are, for instance, certain albums in my top 15 that I won't play in the next six months. I don't think any less of them, I just feel I've heard enough for the time being.

As for Heathen, I need more time to accurately rank it. At this stage, I'm thinking number 14, around the Young Americans / Let's Dance vicinity.

My stumbling block new [re: twister]  

Curiously, it's his early seventies albums that make ranking hard for me, more than anything else.

I know in terms of sixties album, I rate Space Oddity much higher than his debut.

The triptych I rate:
1. Low
2. Lodger
3. "Heroes"

The post-Ziggy's death pre-triptych years, I rate:
1. Diamond Dogs
2. Station To Station
3. Young Americans
4. Pin Ups

The solo eighties years as such:
1. Scary Monsters
2. Never Let Me Down
3. Tonight
4. Let's Dance

In terms of Tin Machine I find their debut far more consistent than their follow-up. His early nineties trilogy I'd rank as:

1. 1. Outside
2. The Buddha Of Suburbia
3. Black Tie White Noise

And his modern day albums I'd rank as:

1. Hours
2. Heathen
3. Earthling

But those damned early seventies! The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane... just consistently great albums for which ranking is beyond me.

I could be a genius if I just put my mind to it.

OK, this is my attempt of the "Adam method" (ranking them from a historical point of view, rather than a current one):

1. "Heroes"
2. StationToStation
3. 1. Outside
4. Aladdin Sane
5. Low
6. Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
7. Diamond Dogs (would do much poorer in a present-day ranking)
8. Black Tie White Noise
9. Never Let Me Down
10. Lodger
11. Ziggy Stardust
12. Let's Dance
13. Young Americans
14. The Buddha Of Suburbia (would probably rank in the top 3 in a present-day ranking)

18. hours...
19. Tin Machine
20. Earthling
21. The Man Who Sold The World

Hunky Dory and PinUps are the only two albums that have given me almost minimal listening satisfaction. The other albums toward the end have had their moments.

Something like that. I have periods for each album, so the first one could be also Ziggy, Scary Monsters, Diamond Dogs or Hours, but this is the order in this moment. Some of the albums are so low because I haven't listen to them much (for example Heathen and The Buddhe of Suburbia).

If I were being more objective I'd have Tonight right in the bottom slot - but the fact remains I listen to it far more often than either Earthling or Tin Machine II - by quite some stretch the two dustiest Bowie albums I own.

The albums ranked lower than Bowie's debut are the ones I feel are unworthy of carrying the name "David Bowie". I think this is a good rule of the thumb for all artists.

Well, not really. They are rather equal to me. In case you haven't noticed, I gave them the same note - 4 and 1/2.

Obviously. I'm not a big fan of Bowie's early 70's recordings, I rather prefer his more recent stuff or his mid- and late 70's albums. Besides, I have got beautiful memories connected with 'hours...' and it has got a special place in my heart forever. Don't asky why. And, all in all, it's just a good album in my opinion.

I put it ahead of Diamond Dogs only because I've been listening to it more than to DD lately. Apart from this fact, I rate those two records very similarily.

You are, but I don't see the point in questioning other people's opinions. You cannot discuss taste and preferences, each man has got different views and opinions.

10. The Man Who Sold The World

For Bowie sub-par, but still in my stereo from time to time.

Albums which need a special mood to be tried out once more.
18. Space Oddity

Traditions. new [re: Sysiyo]  

I guess, in keeping with the tradition, this call for another update to my listing. I must admit that I have listened to hardly any Bowie albums of the late. Which might be good, as recent experiences cannot alter my rankings. For the sake of comparisons, I've followed each album's name with it's position in the last ranking (where applicable, there are three albums in this one I didn't list the last time).

1. Outside (1)
2. "Heroes" (2)
3. Stage (6)
4. Low (forgot to rank this the last time!)
5. Buddha Of Suburbia (10)
6. Station To Station (3)
7. Black Tie White Noise (16)
8. Lodger (7)
9. Earthling (13)
10. Scary Monsters (4)
11. The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust jadda jadda (14)
12. Heathen (12)
13. Aladdin Sane (5)
14. Never Let Me Down (15)
15. Tin Machine II (-)
16. Young Americans (9)
17. Hours (21)
18. Diamond Dogs (8)
19. David Live (11)
20. Tonight (18)
21. Tin Machine (20)
22. Space Oddity (17)
23. Let's Dance (19)
24. Reality (-)
25. Hunky Dory (23)
26. The Man Who Sold The World (24)
27. David Bowie (22)
28. PinUps (25)

The most alarming thing is of course the rise of Hunky Dory (now only fourth from the last). If it keeps this speed up, it will be in the top three around 2030. OK, it actually dropped two places because of the albums added to the list. But it also gained a place from the self-titeled.

Aloof is the new black new [re: twister]  

With due respect to those that have posted on this thread, I really don't give a monkey's toss as regard to who likes what. Similarly, I can't imagine that anybody would be remotely interested in my own Bowie favourite albums either. However, as I've got nothing else to do at the moment, I've decided to compile an updated list. But in an attempt to generate some modicum of excitement, mainly for myself, but also for those of you actually bothering to read this post, I've decided to present my list in a manner slightly outside the norm.

So, the tricky dilemma of how to spice up an extremely routine post. Taking inspiration from EJ's post, I've struck upon the idea of introducing each and every album by way of using TW's smilie faces (or whatever they're called) that bear a passing resemblence to certain Hollywood stars. For example, I was quite startled with the similarity between this little fella: and Robert De Niro and so I've earmarked him as announcing the winner of the number 6 slot. In a manner befiting a schizophrenic Oscar ceremony, we'd therefore have;

Number 6. "Laaadddiees and Gentlemen. Please give a great big round of applause to the star of Frankenstein, Robeeert De Niiiroooo." [De Niro enters stage left to tumultuous applause] "Thank you" [De Niro opens an empty packet of Gitanes and takes out a small piece of paper] "And the winner of EuropeanCanon's sixth favourite David Bowie album is.......Station To Station" [De Niro exits stage right to even more applause]

Etc, etc. However, after about 30 seconds deliberation in selecting further Hollywood lookalikes, things became rather problematical after Quentin Tarantino [] (just tilt your head slightly and squint quite a lot). I was desperately searching for a Sidney Poitier lookalike to play the crucial role of announcer for the No.12 position. I had toyed with the idea of giving the gig to this chap: . Although I detected a certain Mr Tibbs quality in his melancholic little face, I recognised that, ultimately, I was on to a loser with my ambitious plans in that I'd be unable and unwilling to find twentysomething authentic lookalikes from such a restricted gene pool.

After learning my lesson attempting the smart-arse approach, I have inevitably reverted to the lowest common denominator to satisfy my goal. In an effort to please the laydeez (and Strawman) I've decided to post my list of favourite Bowie albums..... naked. But wait! As my mother-in-law is visiting my house at this moment in time, I've decided to spare all our blushes by keeping my G-string leather posing pouch and socks on. Soooo, for the benefit of the laydeez (and Strawman), here is my favourite Bowie songs posted semi-naked. Oh yeah, before I do, I thought I'd introduce a little controversy into your meaningless and unfulfilled lives by posting my compilation in reverse order. And, after struggling rather pathetically, in a final desperate effort to achieve my ill-fated aim of sexing-up this post I've decided to post my list in blood red text (Elliot Gould?).

26. David Bowie
25. Never Let Me Down
24. Tonight
23. Tin Machine

A new list and the history new [re: NoGame]  

It has been a long time since I updated this list, so I guess I need to slip in both Heathen and Reality. Let's see how that goes.

What else has changed since I made my first list in March 2002? Well, I guess Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) doesn't hold the top position any longer. I guess I have listened to it, too often. Also, Hunky Dory is going lower and lower on the list. Any albums going up? Yea', of course, Buddha is now, in my fandom, well established as one of Bowie's most brilliant albums. Back then, I was still reluctant to mark it higher than the TM albums, because I liked the work of Reeves Gabrels so much. Turns out, I like the work of David Bowie even better (you wouldn't say, would you? ). Anyway, here it is, complete with smileys and all.

In relation to last time: U = up, D = down, 'number' = places it went up or down. 'next number' = position last time. Of course, some entries have gone down because of the adding of two new albums. The shiftings in the top regions are more interesting.

U 1 (02) - 01. Low

U 1 (03) - 02. Earthling
U 3 (06) - 03. "Heroes"
U 1 (05) - 04. Station to Station
D 4 (01) - 05. Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)

new entry 06. Heathen
U 6 (13) 07. The Buddha of Suburbia
D 1 (07) 08. Aladdin Sane
same 09. Lodger
D 2 (08) 10. 1. Outside

U 3 (14) 11. Ziggy Stardust
new entry 12. Reality
D 3 (10) 13. Let's Dance
D 10 (04) 14. Hunky Dory
same 15. Diamond Dogs

D 5 (11) 16. Tin Machine
D 5 (12) 17. Tin Machine II
D 1 (17) 18. Young Americans
D 1 (18) 19. The Man Who Sold the World
same 20. Black Tie White Noise

same 21. hours...
D 6 (16) 22. Pin Ups
D 4 (19) 23. Space Oditty

D 2 (24) 26. David Bowie

What kinda fan am I? new [re: EuropeanCanon]  

In reply to:

With due respect to those that on this thread, I really don't give a monkey's toss as regard to who likes what. Similarly, I can't imagine that anybody would be remotely interested in my own Bowie favourite albums either.


I would be interested in your list, even the updates. This thread is really a blueprint of the TW fanbase. In this thread you can find out what kinda Bowie fan / admirer / whatever you want to call it, someone is. I liked reading the post of some of the TW'ers here I hold in high regard, including you, EuropeanCanon. You can seperate the glammers from the experimenters, the pop-lovers from the soul-lovers. On and on. Yea', I really like this thread.

List Shuffling new [re: NoGame]  

Very intersting list, NoGame.

"Earthling" on two is a brave move and it's good to see someone share my enthusiasm for "Heathen". "Reality" ahead of "Hunky Dory" and "Diamond Dogs" is pretty unique around here as well. But the Tin Machine output beating "TMWSTW" and "Young Americans" is a bit too much I would say.

Yep. I listened to Let's Dance yesterday. Wow, what a money album. And you know what? Earthling's not bad either. The first half of it, anyway.

This could be well one of the definitive Newton posts. What an absolutely stellar mind.

Not that much too much... new [re: EJSunday]  

I guess TMWSTW is an album one cannot really appretiate before having an insane phase in one's life making one doubting the own sanity. so let's just wait for the next versions of that list...

Self Control new [re: th0mas]  

Yeah, that must be the problem. And as we both have met NoGame we must admit that he is very unlikely to drift into "an insane phase in one's life making one doubting the own sanity." So that fantastic album may stay beyond him for a very long time. Sad.

Full circle new [re: EJSunday]  

Ah, but that's where my German friends are wrong, I have been through some insane phases (some say I still am going through them), and I have to admit, I listened to TMWSTW quite a lot then. But, then again, in that phase I turned to power albums like Earthling and craziness to be found on Beauty and the Beast, Joe the Lion (made of irrrooooooooonaaah!!!!) and It's No Game.

But seriously, looking at my list, I think I can conclude I am a music fan more than a lyrics fan. I don't say that Bowie hasn't written outstanding lyrics, but I really go for his music. And there's a lot of music-without-lyrics on the Low and "Heroes" albums, isn't there? Same goes for Earthling, where sometimes I feel Bowie didn't want to write at all. He threw shampoo and TVs at us for Christ's sake.

On the other hand. Becausing of Bowie's limited lyrical contributions of those albums, the things he does say and sing, are all the more touching...

And I've never heard Lodger in its entirety.

The first 19 are are money in my opinion. Low and Diamond Dogs are engaged in a never ending battle for supremacy and, I don't wanna be startin' rumors or nothin', but I overheard Ziggy talkin' some shit about how Scary Monsters is liable to get beat if it keeps mouthin' off. I mean, that's just what I heard. And yesterday I saw Space Oddity in the checkout line at Home Depot with a two by four an' one nail. I said hello, but it just mumbled something about "remodelling" and started counting out the exact change.
