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.

David Bowie's output from 1970 to 1983 is so remarkable and unique that it still baffles me that he is not recognized as the most important artist of the 70s. It seems difficult to find a genre that hasn't been influenced by him. Almost no bad records in 50 years of career and having his last two albums still being significantly better than most of today's "rock" bands are true testament to his legacy. RIP to David, Ziggy, the Duke, etc... Things will never be the same...
