Really good album, but easily not his best album. His work in the late 70s is superior, as is Hunky Dory. Several incredible stand-out tracks, but much of the rest of the album is just mediocre.

My favourite Bowie-album. The music and the topic make it very enjoyable.

Music is a funny thing, it is subjective, yet some albums so clearly reach a level of greatness and genius that so few can touch. This is one. It is glorious and timeless. RIP Bowie, your impact on this world cannot be put into words.

Was never a huge Bowie fan until hearing this record. It completely changed my opinion on him as a whole, I will probably do some more listening soon.

Incredibly consistent album full of glorious 70's Rock. I enjoyed every second of it. Nothing negative I can really say. Killer record.

For many years my favourite Bowie album was Hunky Dory and it is still neck and neck with Ziggy, but really I could've chosen quite a few; Aladdin Sane is not a million miles behind Ziggy or Hunky for quality, and Station To Station does not have a bad song on it and we also have the Berlin trilogy.

But we have Ziggy, which of course is a fine collection of songs, the title track, the classic single in Starman and the energy in every other track here is a wonderful thing, a special mention must go to Mick Ronson for his work here too.

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
