this is his last really coked up, pro fascism album as the thin white duke...title track is my fav. bowie song.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/40/David_Bowie_-_Hunky_Dory.jpg

this is his folkiest album, very good, showcases his great songwriting talents


now..the berlin trilogy


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/93/Low_%28album%29.jpg


very sick album, so cold and sharp, but also dense and brilliant. began the trilogy of music co authored with eno, and has some good instrumental tracks (especially Speed of Life)


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/0c/DavidBowieHeroesCover.jpg

perhaps the strongest of the 3 albums, def. the most popular and not for bad reasons..title track is legend...and Blackout, Joe the Lion..etc, great album

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/82/Lodger_cover.jpg


another good album, a little more Talking Heads-ish, far as funky rhythms and things...Look Back in Anger is the best track..


ill be back later to talk about Diamond Dogs...

No Lou Reed fans then? Pity, I'm actually more interested in him than Bowie lolz.

Cheers for the recommendations though. This should help me to further explore the music of Mr Bowie.

then you're in trouble..lmao...he has maybe 3 albums that are worth listening to seriously.

lolz. I'll have to research him a bit more and see which albums are worth getting. It is my understanding that his style of music differs vastly from album to album, so no doubt he is very hit and miss. VUG were great though, and there's some awesome tracks on 'Transformer'.

agreed..everything VU did (with reed) is great...i think my fav. VU album is their ST 3rd one...although "..& Nico" is awesome...wonder what Nico is up to..if shes alive.

I like 'and Nico' best. That album is fucken fantastic. They're all good though. That track on 'White Light...' where the dude tells the story about the guy who sends himself to that biznitch in a box is just so indescribably rad.

I have since acquired the entire Lou Reed discography and have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that He is God, thus disproving the popular and until now hugely convincing argument that the black man is God.

I can not get enough of this album.

You need to get the following David Bowie albums:-

Young Americans
Station to Station
Diamond Dogs
Hunky Dory
Low
Heroes

all of them essential listening.

Everything he did from about 1984 onwards is a waste of time.
A shame as he was one of the best solo artists of his time, and probably the funkiest white man in history.

lolz I probably did. I haven't seen any of his movies for ages so I probably forgot.

Seriously though, these albums...

Lou Reed
Transformer
Berlin
Coney Island Baby
The Bells
The Blue Mask
New Sensations
New York

all clearly the work of God.

And only God could release 'Metal Machine Music' and still keep His career alive afterwards.

his solo work really isnt that stellar..but he is a fantastic song writer

Ayo! Lou Reed is my idol. Crazy because he has no fans. Loved him since high school when I found a used copy of "Street Hassle". But you need these essential albums:

Rock n Roll Animal (Live) - Epic live animal
The Bells - Weird, dark, free jazz experiment with Don Cherry, a genius in his own right
Take No Prisoners (Live) - Just roll up and enjoy this one. Hilarious Lou banter and beautiful, jazzy versions of some of his best songs. These versions of "Coney Island Baby" and "Satellite of Love" will knock you over.
Transformer, duh
Berlin
The Blue Mask - The last track "Heavenly Arms is as sentimental and vulnerable as he gets. Rare style for him and it works
Ecstasy - Title track is too slick
The Raven - Edgar Allan Poe concept album. Extra bonus - Steve Buschemi and Willem Dafoe reading excerpts from Poe
Mistrial - Great Lou stepping into the 80s with mostly programmed music

I haven't got any of the live ones yet, so I'll have to check out the ones you mentioned.

I've kinda put Bowie on hold at the moment. I dl'ed 'Scary Monsters' a little while back and I'm not all that into it. I don't think anyone here even mentioned it though, so I'll have to try some of the ones mentioned here. At the moment I've got a few other bands I'm interested in though, and because I can't seem to get a proper internet connection at my apartment I generally only dl one album a week, at the local library lolz.

Scary Monsters is the last decent album Bowie did imo.

Let's Dance had it's moments, but it was a poor album in general.
