Yes. This album is literally fucking perfection. Low had many tracks which felt underbaked and half done, the ambient tracks ranged from fucking great to slightly dull. On here the poprock stuff is fantastic, upbeat, danceable, while the ambient side is very entertaining, intriguing, and calming.
>>61786127 >>61786076 Nope. Low is better in almost every way. All the ambient tracks on it are better than the ones on Heroes, particularly Subterraneans. The songs on Low are catchier and shorter, meaning there's more fun ideas put into less space.
Heroes is closer to being a proper Bowie album, but I don't enjoy it as much as I enjoy Low. Hell, I enjoy Lodger more than Heroes.

>>61786514 Every time someone says they like Diamond Dogs, they defend their choice with this same exact song.
Yes, Sweet Thing is good. Rebel Rebel is good. What else is even remotely worthwhile off it?
Honestly it's an album that focused too much on the dystopian narrative no one followed over the music. If you need evidence of that, the best song on the record needed a reprise to pad things out.
1984 and Big Brother are particularly middle of the road. I get he was writing an album based off 1984, but I really wish he re-titled the songs and changed the lyrics for Diamond Dogs. As they stand, it just feels lazy, like it cuts the narrative while making it too obvious as to what he was going for.
Bowie has lots of amazing records. Diamond Dogs is not one of them.
>>61786598 Earthling is more listenable to me than Diamond Dogs, but I don't care much for either.
Tonight is not a bad record. Loving the Alien and Dancing with the Big Boys are fantastic songs, and his cover of Neighborhood Threat is stellar. The only song on Tonight that's outright bad is the cover of God Only Knows.
>>61786219 >literally the /mu/ contrarian rankings
I love the Berlin trilogy, but it's so fucking overrated compared to the rest of his discography. Especially Lodger, that album belongs in the far back of his catalog alongside the self-titled and Pin Ups
Also, >Ziggy at 2, Aladdin at 10, Diamond Dogs at 19 the fuck?
My ranking: Top 10 (14) Bowie albums 1. The Man Who Sold The World, Low, Heathen, Blackstar 2. Station to Station 3. Scary Monsters 4. Heroes 5. Hunky Dory 6. Ziggy Stardust 7. The Next Day 8. Diamond Dogs 9. Outside 10. Space Oddity
>>61787762 Aladdin Sane has a few GOAT's, but also some clunkers. Title track, Time and Lady Grinning Soul are GOAT, but Watch that Man, Spend The Night, Jean Genie and Prettiest Star are mediocre to bad. Same poster as above.
>>61786076 1. "Heroes" 2. Station to Station 3. Aladdin Sane 4. Blackstar 5. Low 6. Ziggy 7. The Man Who Sold the World 8. Scary Monsters 9. Heathen 10. Diamond Dogs 11. Young Americans 12. Hunky Dory 13. Lodger 14. Space Oddity 15. Earthling 16. Outside 17. Buddha of Suburbia 18. The Next Day 19. Reality 20. 'Hours...' 21. Pin Ups 22. Tonight 23. Never Let Me Down 24. Black Tie White Noise 25. David Bowie
Station to Station is the best Bowie album. The perfect balance between Berlin Bowie and Plastic Soul Bowie. It's the best prologue the Berlin Trilogy could've had, the title track and TVC15 were a sign of things to come.
>>61786772 >>61786823 I have a really beat up copy of Diamond Dogs with a light white stain on the tracking of Rock & Roll With Me. It doesn't really affect it, but the pops and scratches really fit the mood the album.
>>61786076 Nope, I love "Heros" something about it just doesn't jell for me. You get a very compelling first half then the ambient stuff starts... Oh lordy! It starts to feel a bit mixed up. Low has this very unearthly feeling to it and everything just clicks together. Granted, "Heros" is still a great album it just feels unfocused when compared to Low.
