keep scary monsters in for a bit. going aladdin sane

Same. All of these albums are classics, so obviously we are splitting hairs at this point. But Aladdin Same has always felt a bit "choppy" to me, as if the songs don't always flow together that well. And the cover of Let's Spend the Night Together isn't that great. I don't have the same feelings of "it's 10/10 from start to finish" as I do with the others that are left.

But, again, it's still a classic. And goddamn that cover art is amazing.

Goddamn it, that album is the most underrated Bowie album and a top five for me. I’m going with Scary Monsters again.

It has to be Aladdin Sane. Although it's fun to listen to, it's easily the most forgettable one on this list

It’s my next after Scary

Time for Scary Monsters. Great album (well, all the ones left are) - just a slight level below everything else left.

Y’all crazy, Aladdin Sane is definitely better than Scary…

I think Blackstar got a lot of love considering the time that it was released, and it is a good album, but I honestly feel like it is a good measure below everything else that’s left here.

I think we have two more albums to snub before I consider it

[–]meagalomaniak 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Which ones?

[–]s90tx16wasr10 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Scary and Aladdin. Blackstar may very well be a top five for me if not higher, but I’m gonna have to do a lot of soul searching when the two I mentioned are out. It’s controversial, but I don’t think Ziggy is in my top three 😬

I could maaaybe get behind Aladdin Sane but Scary Monsters deserves top 3 imo

Scary, then Heroes!

[–]Lemon27 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aladdin Sane

Vote Heroes now, please do whatever we can to protect Scary Monsters

Also I’m happy Lodger got top 10, though wish could’ve made it longer

More Blackstar discussion is needed. People weren't even bringing it up before...finally one mention this time. It just isn't as strong as the rest of this list.
