Arguably David Bowie's best album, Ziggy Stardust encapsulates everything great about Bowie as an artist: it is loud and boisterous but never obnoxiously so, it is frantic and enerjetic, yet controlled and calculated, and it is creative and odd, but it does not alienate the listener, rather it entices them into this imaginative world and fills the listener's mind with the tales of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust character. This album is truly an adventurous, impactful, and artistic masterpiece by a man who you could really believe is not from our world.
Best tracks: Moonage Daydream, Ziggy Stardust, Suffragette City, Starman

I don't know why but I always found this album lackluster compared to Heroes. Other than that, this is Bowie's second greatest.

Bowie's best. Nothing else came close! Art rock made accessible! Ronson is underated and Bowie was never the same without him!

Ziggy, an alien sex Jesus, has rather upsetting news about the world coming to an end. For some reason he has to sing his doom-laden message but all the kids go on the rampage because there's nowhere to plug his guitar in. Anyway, there's some good news, a starman is coming who can sort it all out. Unfortunately, when he arrives he can't help because he's made of antimatter. Ziggy gets torn apart by a black hole and all the young dudes live happily ever after... or something. It's great, you'll love it!

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:42
In its own way, this is audacious stuff right down to the stubborn wispiness of its sound, and Bowie's actorly intonations add humor and shades of meaning to the words. Which are often witty and rarely precious, offering an unusually candid and detailed vantage on the rock star's world. Admittedly, for a long time I wondered who cared, besides lost kids for whom such access feels like privilege. The answer is, someone like Bowie--a middlebrow fascinated by the power of a highbrow-lowbrow form.

85/100 = B+

One of the best albums made by anyone. Could never understand why Bowie didn't include 'Velvet Goldmine' on this though.
