Ziggy is an automatic Orange because its Recommended First Listen. But what other album should? Station to Station? Low? Heroes? nothing else?

Arguably any of the albums in the Berlin trilogy deserve it, but I'll single out Low because of its massive importance on merging electronic music with rock.

That's the best rock song on Low for sure. My fav for the album's probably Subterraneans or Warszawza.

Station to Station is a seriously GREAT song -- every movement and transition is flawless. Probably my most listened to of the past month.

Not a bad tier, except.... no red bold for Aladdin Sane?

C'MON.

It's my second favorite Bowie album, after Ziggy.

Station to Station is really an album I should have listened to before now. Top stuff.
