Ive never actually listened to david bowie except for some songs that were on the radio. What would be a good album for me to get into his work?
I usually like more experimental music then catchy stuff. I know I must be coming off like a pleb right now.
Hunky dory and ziggy stardust are my favorites. I enjoy hunky dory because it's a little less showy and down to earth. Alladin Sane is really good too. After that I'd say there's a few songs from his other albums which are good, like Space Oddity, Fame, Ashes to Ashes. A lot of people say Low and Station to Station are his best, so those are probably worth checking out too.
Listen to album like Ziggy Stardust (glam rock); Station to Station (funky krautrock, my favourite) and The Berlin Trilogy ( Low/Heroes/Lodger). You can then go to Scary Monsters for that new wave vibe and go directly to the nineties for Outside/Earthling (which is too underrated, IMO)
