I was going to listen Man Who sold, but instead I put Scary Monsters. Itīs my favourite after Ziggy Stardust-album, always hit me much more than for example Low, Heroes or Lodger. And the reason is not just Ashes to Ashes which I think is one of the best Bowie songs, the whole album is just so amazing!
I am glad I saw him alive. It was after his Earthling-album. One of the best moments was when he performed Quicksand, also one of my favourite songs.
My top5 Bowie albums in order:
1. the Man Who sold the World
2. Hunky Dory
3. Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust
4. Scary Monsters
5. Space Oddity (used be just David Bowie at first).
