Low and SM will be Bowie's most lasting contribution in the field of production.

Re: Bowie's best produced album? new [re: Sylvanelf]  

I'll have to think about this (and possibly listen to some of the albums) before I can give a solid answer but right now i'd love to give an answer on Sysiyo's behalf.
He would love nominate Hunky Dory as the best produced Bowie album out there. Strawman isn't the only one with psychic talents.

Lord is this a tough one. Im going to go with "Diamond Dogs" ( 1st choice ) and the brilliant "Outside" ( 2nd choice )

Both albums in my mind being the perfect concept.

Good luck with your paper.

Re: Bowie's best produced album? new [re: Sylvanelf]  

This is fairly hopeless since you're never going to get agreement on what exactly constitutes good production so people are probably just going to nominate their favourite album, as I'm about to do. In terms of sheer innovation and influentialness (now a word, I know), I'm going with Low.

I don't think the early 70s albums were that well produced. TMWTW is a bit of a mess, and Hunky Dory is dated. I share Bowie's reservations on a lot of the Ziggy mixing. Aladdin is probably the best of those early ones, but there are some duffers there too. Diamond Dogs is good though, maybe because Bowie took more direct control, and Young Americans is flawless.

Most of the 80s albums are very much of their time productionwise. Of the more recent ones, Buddha has a certain lofi charm but isn't polished enough. The production is possibly the weakest aspect of Outside, even Eno doesn't rate it. Earthling is an absolute gem productionwise though: most "electronicaesque" albums end up sounding too muddled (as does Outside), but Earthling avoids this trap. Hours sounds like it started as a fairly cheap and cheerful game soundtrack and even the insertion of Plati late in the day couldn't save it. Heathen and Reality are both well-produced without ever quite hitting excellence. So of the recent albums, productionwise, I'd say only Earthling rivals Young Americans, Low, Scary, and Let's Dance (very of its time, but also undeniably Best Of Breed).

Slan libh,

Dara

I could'nt agree with you more Dara. It is the perfect album

Well, the best produced Bowie album is not David Bowie, Space Oddity, TMWSTW, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, PinUps, Lodger, Tonight, Never Let Me Down, Tin Machine, Tin Machine II, The Buddha Of Suburbia, Earthling, Hours, Heathen or Reality.

I think I'll go with Black Tie White Noise. Mightn't be his best album, but it is brilliantly produced.

Production wise, 'Young Americans' is his best album. Working together Visconti and Maslin are geniuses.
