A great album in the history of popular music. Even if it sounds a little dated it's an essential album to respect and love.

Just for Moonage Daydream alone this gets my vote..Heroes aside much preferred Ronson/Bowie to Eno/Bowie. Check out the live version for Mick Ronson's cosmic guitar solo.

Easily one of the best concept albums of all time. Even disregarding the music; the story, the way the songs change perspective, the meaning, the irony ect... It's just brilliant and timeless. However, Bowie's songwriting has never been better and his vocals have never been richer. He sings each track with a sly and almost smug confidence as if he knows what he's singing is genius. "Starman", "It Ain't Easy", "Suffragette City", every song is classic. The album closes on such a melancholy note and by the end it really captures that feel that comes with early morning after a night of staying up; reality sinking in after the party. Just one of the all out most enjoyable and perfect albums out there and a true testament to the genius and showmanship of David Bowie. The leads the entire thing along like a ring leader in a circus.
