I'm undecided. But I will say I rate Pin Ups over Lodger and Heroes.

We've come up with some ridiculous formats over the years, but I've got to award you with a special trophy for this one, Adam.

I can't wait for the 'Dodgy Years in Fifths' poll next month.

Re: The Classic Years By Quarters new [re: Adam]  

I think you're confused Adam. You've actually divided them into thirds, since there are only three groupings. Quadruple thirds is what you have here, m'boy.

Re: The Classic Years By Quarters new [re: Emil]  

yes, i'd put very album before Young Americans in the Early Years category. Bowie made a continental shift wif Young Americans.. Oops, pun intended. He's quoted as saying "Station to Station was like a plea to return to Europe". and then this; "I'm tired of narrative song-writing", which he said soon after Diamond Dogs. So i put Station to Station and Young Americans in the Middle Years, if it has to have a nomer, and then the rest of the 70s album in the later years. All that said, i have to vote for the Early Years, because there are four spectacular albums ( Space Oddity, TMWSTW, Hunky Dory, Ziggy ) in a row. The Man was unbeatable.

I'm with you there. Pin-ups is way under-rated. Listen to it again, he does those songs way better than the originals.

Re: groupie new [re: Emil]  

I actually disagree with the grouping of the albums too. Bowie's classic period was the one when he had the red shag haircut: Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Pinups, and Diamond Dogs.

This is his classic period, consisting of these 4 albums. Of this, there can be no dispute.

I love the fact you can't read.
