Fripp's guitar on Fashion is pretty damn inspired. Such an unusual way to come at something which would have otherwise just have been a decent disco song.

Okay, it's not as objectively good as the earlier ones but it's catchy as fuck.

Scary Monsters is 10/10 imo.
>>
The Blue Oyster Cult guy did balls up the production somewhat, but this is definitely a gem that a lot of people overlook.
>inb4 Sandinista, it is rated perfectly fairly generally, just admit it has some major flaws
>>
>>61739211
Earthling is not a good album
>>
>>61739211
Heck Scary Monsters has one of his most popular and highly rated songs on it.

Diamond Dogs

>>61739352

I love Diamond Dogs, I'm not sure why so many people think it's just alright
>>
>>61739313
i think Diamond Dogs is underrated
i think it's in his top 3
>>
>>61739313
Besides ashes to ashes and fashion, the album is relatively underrated
>>
>>61739371
It was stuck in the middle of Bowie's transition from glam rock to funk and krautrock.
>>
>>
>>
>>61739390
It is in itself a unique album though, the slow soul ambiance and sexiness of Young Americans mixed with the glammy rock and roll from Aladdin Sane
>>
>>61739206
Woah, I've never looked closely at this album cover and always thought it was a sheet of warped industrial metal. I never noticed the hair, what is actually being photographed here?
>>
>>61739390
i thought it was a good transition to soul, it sounds very thematic and also has a lot of saxaphone.
Also, Diamond Dogs should be known as one of his greatest creations because he produced the album on his own and played lead guitar AND sax throughout the album.
Oh, and Sweet thing has the best Bowie vocals ever recorded
>>
>>61739488
ear.
i always thought its a camels head

>>61739488
I think its an ear.

>I Get Wild comes on
>>
>>61739505
I like how its a mixture of his glam rock stuff along with almost a rock opera feel like The Wall by Pink Floyd.

It is definitely unappreciated. A lot of Bowie albums are.

not as underrated as this
>>
>>61739380
That's a fair point especially with Teenage Wildlife for me. What I was mostly getting at is that Scary Monsters is a album that receives praise and exists in the public conscience. Compare that to an album like Buddha of Suburbia which to most people does not even exist. Before I started browsing on /mu/ it seemed as if Bowie died in 1986 with no media or fans even acknowledging he made music after Blue Jean or maybe his songs in Labyrinth.

Man, none of these are underrated at all, these all get the praise they deserve. Theyre all good albums but not great albums
>>
>>61739651
which album do you think mostly lives up to that quote in Bowie's discog?
>>
>>61739666
But Satan, Burzum is Classic Rock now.
>>
>>61739337
wtf this is and filosofem tend to be considered his best
>>
>>61739651
Yeah he just kept getting better and better
>>
>>61739673
Probably Blackstar actually. I don't think that's just because of his death either. Though I think I only saw one review saying the scary monsters thing for this one so they blew their last chance
>>
>>61739175
Seven and the Ragged Tiger is awesome too; Rio never really rocks the fuck out like the other two.
>>
>>
>>61739721
tfw he never surpassed scary monsters in reviewers eyes
>>
Scary Monsters isn't underrated, nearly every time an album came out since a critic would call it "his best since scary monsters" And it's generally considered his last great album by casual fans.

>>61739625

This. And Buddha.
>>
Psychedelic Coil was the best

This is a great album, it's just unfortunate that Stop Making Sense rendered it obsolete. All of the good songs on SiT are rendered much better on SMS and the rest really aren't that great.

Up the Hill Backwards is the only good song on that

My second favorite Ae album. I like how the melodies are buried under a bunch of chopped up notes, so you have to listen real closely to figure them all out.

>>61745461
Despite being a big Depeche Mode fan, I've always put off this album for some reason. It's actually pretty damn good. It feels like a more minimal, synth-heavier version of Construction Time Again.
