The moment you realize the genius of David Bowie is the moment you realize the genius of music as a whole. There´s still stuff about all of his works, that bug me a small bit, but for all I care he has made some of the best albums I ever listened to. Ziggy stardust is pretty much his best, musically and lyrically, standing as one of the best stories told in a musical record.

A brilliant album this is the album that brought Bowie to a wider audience. The first 4 tracks are legendary especially Starman & 5 Years, it the tails off a little before hitting you with the last 3 tracks Ziggy, Suffragette City & Rock n Roll Suicide. It is regarded as his best album rightly so, it is just not my favourite maybe I've got used to it !

Ziggy Stardust is Bowie’s most recognisable guise, and the accompanying album is the peak of his early career. Switching gears from the balladry of Hunky Dory, Bowie is a glam rock star.

Bowie's most praised album, and for good reason, as it has some of his best songs like Starman and Rock & Roll Suicide.

The best album of one of the defining musicians of the 20th century. There isn't a bad song on the album. Rock n roll suicide one of the best songs ever.
