Station to Station for me. It may only has 6 tracks (Ep by todays standards) but each track is amazing and I love his cover of 'Wild is the Wind'.

Heathen is the most underrated - deserves to be compared to his very best.

Space Oddity : 4/10
The Man Who Sold the World : 5/10
Hunky Dory : 8/10
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars : 8/10
Aladdin Sane : 9/10
Pin Ups : 4/10
Diamond Dogs : 5/10
Young Americans : 2/10
Station to Station : 10/10
Low : 6/10
"Heroes" : 6/10
Lodger : 6/10
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) : 7/10
Let's Dance : 4/10
Tonight : N/A (Haven't heard for years)
Never Let Me Down : N/A (Haven't heard for years)
Tin Machine : N/A (Never Heard)
Tin Machine II : N/A (Never Heard)
Black Tie White Noise : N/A (Haven't heard for years)
Outside : 5/10
Earthling : 2/10
'Hours...' : 5/10
Heathen : 8/10
Reality : 4/10
The Next Day : N/A (Not Out Yet!)

The Buddha of Suburbia (soundtrack) : 5/10

Presumptive of me to include the new album I know, but I hope this threads lives beyond April, rather than make another thread.

Close run thing between "Heroes", Diamond Dogs & Hunky Dory

but "Heroes" is the winner for me, due to Eno/Fripp being present & the Ambient tracks

Also I wouldn't include the Tin Machine albums as Bowie albums lol just to be fair to the rest of them.

I voted diamond dogs today.

My favourite artist after Madonna and hand in hand with Kate Bush....he is The King Of Music!

Young Americans I feel is my favourite Bowie album...the Plastic Soul vibes of the record is just so haunting and refreshing and inspiring to hear...it has a definite warmth and leancholy to it that blends so uneasily...and 8 songs of perfection throughout.

Scary Monsters, Diamond Dogs, Aladdin Sane and Heroes (well the whole Berlin Trilogy really) are perfection also!

VERY tough choice but, on balance, 'Let's Dance'. I love 'Hours........', though.

Surprised that The Man Who Sold the World has no votes... not the least bit surprised by the others on zero though..

Voted for Aladdin Sane not least for Time and The Prettiest Star which is probably my favorite Bowie track,

God, that was torture!
Hard choice between "Berlin trilogy", Station To Station ,Hunky Dory and Diamond Dogs but I went for Station To Station.
I love the way it's still got a touch of the funk from Young Americans, but that cold, mechanical European vibe he'd go on to explore further in the "Berlin trilogy" is also coming to the fore.
A truly transitional record.

I voted for "Low" also. A very experimental album which showed Bowie at his versatile best.

Surprised Outside, Heathen & Reality are on zero - Time is one of my fav racks though purely for the line "Time - he flexes like a whore / Falls wanking to the floor"

If I had to pick 1 album today it would probably be Diamond Dogs but tomorrow I'd probably choose something else

Also, just for interest, when I ran a big competition on here a couple of years back, Ziggy Stardust came out on top of a top 15 list.

I've been tempted to do it again, but I'm terrified of One Direction, Lady Gaga etc infecting the list. That competition was before mainstream music got particularly popular on this forum

Me too - but as we've been forced to choose, I've gone for Diamond Dogs.

There are so many brilliant tracks on the albums - including this atypical one, Lady Grinning Soul from (I think) Aladdin Sane:

I love Wild is the Wind too - probably my favourite cover of that song

Meh I could have picked Station to Station, David Bowie, Scary Monsters, Lodger, Let's Dance, Man who sold the world, Outside, Earthling, Aladdin Sane as 10/10 as well as dogs...

I'm strangely in the mood to listen to Never Let Me Down now...Zeroes is a fine track, as is Beat of Your Drum...

possibly the two most sexiest bowie tracks there. I'd add We are the dead to that..very haunting songs.

YEAH puddit there!

ALso agreed with Station To Station....it is a very transitional album without being full on Plastic SOul sounds from Young Americans and hints of where he was to head....its brilliant!

Really really struggled with this & my finger hovered over every option (pre Let's Dance) on more than one consideration.

However, I went with Scary Monsters as that was the album that made me pay attention & obsess about Bowie - it was only when I started to investigate his back catalogue that I realised how much I had grown up with him (which simply intensified my youthful obsession with him).

I still remember sitting on the floor of my local library reading every book I could find on him - totally transfixed on every single repetitive detail.

Lost interest during the whole Let's Dance phase & never regained the earlier fascination - although never a day goes by without me listening to at least one Bowie track on my MP3 player
