David Bowie's glam rock masterpiece. It's hard to say if it's his best because you can't really compare it to album's like, station to station, or, low, because they're so different, but it's certainly his best and most consistent of his early seventies records. There's probably not much I can add to what you guys have said here, but still, here goes. At least half of the album is top draw Bowie. Five years, Ziggy Stardust, rock and roll suicide, lady Stardust, and, sufraggette city, are all stunning songs, David Bowie classics. But then you realise there's, soul love, moonage daydream, star, hang on to yourself. I suppose if there is a weak track, you would have to say it's Ron Davies', it's not easy, but it's still a good track. A great album, a classic.

When you try to reach In The Aeroplane Over The Sea.
But the admins keep banning charts that help you.
And everyone knows it's a far superior album

The best David Bowie album, no questions asked, and the best of many top albums. No weak moments. Top notch!

Sadly, I discovered how important Bowie's music is, especially this album, only after he died. I've always been a fan, but I feel slightly guilty for listening mostly to his "hits" prior to his death, leaving me unaware of many great tracks until more recently.
