Without doubt Bowie was an exceptional song writer, artist and singer - a great and unique showman. We largely remember him for his work up to and including Let's Dance in 1983. But if you cut him off due to those dodgy 80's commercial albums then you miss a great recovery starting with glimpses in Outside in 95 - I have not been to Oxford Town is superb.
Hours in 1999 has some tracks as good as any he did before - Thursday's Child and Something in the Air being a case in point. And Reality in 2003 is as near good an album as any in the 70's with his two last albums singles being the best to offer from there.
If Bowie never had any stuff up to 1993 then he would still be regarded as an exceptional artist, so if you haven't tuned into the new(er) stuff then you are missing out on some vintage Bowie with some individual tracks to rival Life on Mars and Starman.
Thanks Bowie - "bye bye everybody, we love you"

David Bowie was a genius, and one who was uniquely difficult to pin down. He reinvented himself every 5 years or less, creating one the most diverse catalogs in the history of rock music. His music was always different, but very importantly, this wasn't Bowie adjust to the styles of the days, this was always Bowie adjusting the styles to his own vision, or occasionally creating the styles of the day. His understanding of the power of image led him to be an icon for more than just his music, but to me, he will always be a god for his ability to push every boundary, and not be contained by what was expected of him. His music was always incredible and never stale, a rare combination in music. He was a true rock god, one of the few.

He was huge in the 70s, I'm not a big fan of his work in the 80s, but he never made bad. A great artist

I always thought the two most underrated songwriters ever are Alice Cooper and David Bowie. Bowie was a genius.

I'm ably one of the few that is less into the songsongs like 'Ashes to Ashes', but Hunky Dory and Ziggy are among the greatest albums ever released. His style of music, including his songwriting and voice, was so ahead of its time. Personal favourite tracks are Life On Mars and Ziggy Stardust.

From DeusExMackia 04/07/2016 21:22
I've decided to rewrite my comment on Bowie, mainly because since his passing, I've been through his discography a few times and re-realised just how good an artist he really was.

This is a man who had a quality that no other artist I've yet to hear has possessed. I'm not quite what it is, but I think it's a combination of exceptional attention to detail, careful control of the effect on the audience, personal experimentation, synethesising of different genres and most importantly, bold, defiant and fantastic showmanship. This allowed him to take on so many different styles of music and leave a constant mark of unity that distinguished his work.

The man himself is interesting as the music, and they so regularly came together with his different personas that the sound of his music seemed to embody the character he was conveying. The reflections of himself that built each of those characters were fantastic; the Thin White Duke reflecting his struggles with fame and drugs; Ziggy Stardust embodying the weird and brilliant rock star he was seen as at the time; Berlin Bowie showing his return to normality and search for himself. I could write pages and pages on each of them.

Perhaps most important is that Bowie was always constantly putting maximum effort into what he did. He was enthusiastic and passionate about all of his music and his image, and it shows. I have no doubts in saying that the majority of Bowie's work deserves to be considered as some of the best music that will ever be written; looking at his impact on pop culture alone is enough to justify that, and that's before how many other artists were influenced by him.

In this regard, David Bowie is, simply put, the greatest recording artist of all time. Now, of course, that's a personal opinion and could be challenged by a number of other artists. In fact, truth be told, no one really holds that place. But if I had to put one above the rest, it would be him. Not just for the personal love I have for him and his music, but for the fact that if you were to erase his existence, I couldn't imagine the world being anything like what it is today.

From Wingman 02/12/2016 22:22
If we look at his whole discography,he doesn't deserve the rating i have decide to give his artistry,but that's not the point. The point is that he is perhaps the greatest "showman" in music,over acts like Michael Jackson and a few other contenders. He displayed so much charisma and at the same time zaniness,that it's pretty much impossible not to adore him. Not to mention that his records from the beginning of the 70s to 1983 are remarkable in their diversity,influentially and most of all greatness. His music will continue to influence modern artist and will definitely still have an impact. To put it simply,he's a legend,a hero.
