Has anyone noticed how ''Speed Of Life'' is almost a wholesale rip off of Mort Garson's ''Up The Strip''? Maybe he didn't even known him - who knows - but it's scarily similar-sounding.

Am I the only Diamond Dogs fan here? It's seriously one of my top 5 albums of all time.

This Ain't Rock 'n Roll, this is genocide!

opens with a standard Bowie type tune that is really rocking, goes into the awesome musical passage sweet thing- candidate- reprise then out of the noise of the end of Sweet Thing (reprise) comes the Rebel, Rebel riff, which IMO is one of the greatest riffs of all time.

Then on the 2nd side you've got the sweetly romantic "When You Rock and Roll With Me" followed by "We Are the Dead" with its super long chorus that Bowie sings without so much as stopping for a breath. Then it follows that up with the super dancey "1984" and ends with the mellotron choire infused "Big Brother" and the experimental "Chant of the Ever Circling Skeletal Family."

Totally an album that does not get enough credit. It has a little bit of everything Bowie wise. It fits in just as well with his early 70's work as it does with his late 70's work.

Hunky Dory.

As much as I like Bowie I think there's always dispensable tracks on his records though.

You're definitely not alone. Sweet Thing is one of the greatest things he's done, and it was even better live (although both of his live albums are pretty shitty, the Nassau Colesium '76 bootleg should be released - the STS tour was the heaviest of his the 70's imo, harder than the early days in many places due to Stacey Heydon's presence, and he was horrifying with all the coke fascism).
 


I enjoy the fact that most of the lyrics on DD were done by cut-up. Bowie's amateur sort of guitar style that he uses on the album is very proto-punk.

Heros and Lodger have Fripp & Eno, so its an easy choice for me.

Diamond Dogs, Aladdin Sane, and Low. The order changes. Usually whichever I listened to most recently is the best. I haven't really heard most of his post Scary Monsters/Let's Dance stuff, but I doubt it even counts.

After much consideration, I gotta go with Scary Monsters. It was my first Bowie album. Its got Fripp, its got mellotron, its even got Pete Townsend. I love the production. I really like the mix of arty wierdness and commerciality.

Scoff as you will, but back in the day I was surgerically attached to MTV because of people like Mr. Bowie. That's a big reason I like the album too.

Funny, I didn't think I liked Low that much but re-listening, it is pretty darn good. Lodger doesn't hold up as much as I'd like it to.

And the later blantently commercial stuff is still good. I can listen to Blue Jean all day long (well, maybe that's a little exageration). Earthling isn't half bad either.

No, I love Diamond Dogs. It's probably tied with The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars as my 2nd favorite after Low, and those two are really close to #1 anyway. I go through fazes where I listen to Diamond Dogs over and over, then I don't listen to it again for a few weeks or months. I should probably be in one of those fazes now, seeing as a big election is at hand.

Good Alastair Reynolds novella based on the title too.

I've always considered that album Bowie's most punk rock album.

I'm totally with you on Diamond Dogs. You might have to lean into it a little, but once you find it, the groove is very rewarding. "If you want it, boys, get it here thing..." and then of course you've got Rebel Rebel on that disc. It doesnt spoon feed the hooks to you, but It deserves more listens by the nonbelievers.
