Probably the most influential musician of the 70s - and he managed to produce top level albums later on. Certainly a top 10 artist.

David Bowie dominated the 1970's more than Dylan or the Beatles dominated the 1960's. In 10 years Bowie delivered 11 studio albums, 7 or 8 of these were of the highest quality, not to mention his contribution to Lou Reed's Transformer, Raw Power by the Stooges and Iggy's solo albums The Idiot and Lust For Life.

Low is one of the greatest albums of all time.
Aside from that his discography is absolutely stunning. He might be my favorite artist right now.

I have a good friend who absolutely loves David Bowie, so I put a little more effort into this album. What I found is that I don't really enjoy sitting down and listening to the whole thing from start to finish, I do like mixing in one track at a time while listening to other music.

A GENIUS! Simply one of the greatest artists of the last century, comparable to Picasso! Probably had the widest influence on pop music since The Beatles and Bob Dylan. And like The Beatles no hyperbole is too much!!

One of the few artists to make truly great, cutting edge and influential music for over a decade - and then add to this his influence on other contemporaries, e.g. Lou Reed. Can't not give him 100/100.
