He is a fornicate genius. What album mate?

The Berlin trilogy of Low/Heroes/Lodger are definitely his best, plus that album he wrote for Iggy Pop, The Idiot. Station to Station, Hunky Dory, Ziggy, Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory, Young Americans, Diamond Dogs and Scary Monsters are great as well.

Best ever for me.

I'm not familiar with Bowie's works. Just some of his 80's hits or so. Watched some profound documentaries about Bowie some fortnight ago. Wow! Claiming he's a genius sounds like an understatement to me now. The guy is colossal! Must find the time to check out his works CHRONOLOGICALLY. What a piece of music history it is.

He is a genius because he basically mastered every style of music he attempted and constantly reinvented himself. With the psychedelic rock (Space Oddity), to glam (Ziggy), moving on to soul (Young Americans) and then onto ambient and krautrock in Germany and then dance in the 80's. The musical chameleon. He even did a heavy metal album which was great (The Man Who Sold The World).

The thing that annoys me with the Bowie documentaries is they focus mainly on the glam rock Ziggy era and less so on the work he did in Germany or even the Thin White Duke Era, which was imo his best work. I was always familiar with tracks like Starman and Changes but when I heard the stuff he did in Berlin it blew my head off.

I would say start with Hunky Dory and work your way up to Scary Monsters. His 80's output isn't really worth your time, a few tracks aside.

Thanks for the advice but why skip his first three albums?

That's a fair point, you can't go wrong with Bowie.

The first one wasn't good, he was doing shit like The Laughing Gnome around then and only just making a name for himself. The second (known as Space Oddity) had some good tracks on it, the title track which is a classic and An Occasional Dream but it's not a great album in terms of consistency.

The Man Who Sold The World was where he really started to improve, many consider it to be his first really good album. The 70's was his creative zenith full of his classic material with Hunky Dory being the one where he blew up, you will probably be familiar with most of the tracks on it. That was his first classic album. Would ignore Pin Ups too as that was a cover album post-Ziggy era that was not really worth bothering with. See Emily Play is good, can leave the rest. Everything else is worth your time up to Let's Dance.

Those early albums might be worth listening to once you've absorbed the others but not somewhere I'd recommend starting from.

I'd strongly disagree with that. Bowie is a god.
