An amazing glam rock album that drops the listener into an amazing story, a story that would not work with any other medium. Yet, with Bowie's unique musicality, not only does this album work, but it makes for one of the best albums of all time.

Best Tracks: Five Years, Lady Stardust, Rock & Roll Suicide
My Least Favorite (Still Great Songs): It Ain't Easy, Star

David Bowie at his best! Great instrumental. Provocative lyrics. It is a brilliant portrait of the society in wich Bowie lived.

I love the way it starts, sets it up perfectly. Well the album is perfect. Definitely one to have on vinyl. Nothing else to be said, even the cover is spot on.

¨There's a starman waiting in the sky, He´d like to come and meet us, But he thinks he'd blow our minds¨
The first album I listened of David Bowie was this one, and still incredible everytime I listen to anyone of this songs, are full of surprises, powerful riffs, incredible lyrics, he really know how to write songs, he´s was one of the 3 rebel genius, with Reed and Iggy Pop, his name should be remembered like Lennon, in a big variety of ways

Best song: Starman, Ziggy Stardust
Worst song: It Ain´t Easy

I like it. Not blown away, but it's good. I'm sure it will grow on me, and I'll rank it higher later.

I can't think of a better example of a (non-experimental) album that benefits more from repeated listens.

A good album that dips a bit in the middle. I'm a bit surprised by it's acclaim since it isn't better than his other glam-rock albums. Nonetheless it is a great album and definitely worth to listen to.
