This is part concept album and perhaps some other songs thrown in. It has 2 classic Bowie Songs with Diamond Dogs & Rebel Rebel. The rest of the album sticks with the concept some very interesting stuff but perhaps the tracks don’t stand on their own as well.

From Brad1770
Bowie's dystopian vision is quite a mixed bag and doesn't really work as an overall concept album - case in point is the iconic "Rebel Rebel" inclusion , a track not consistent with the over all theme

No more than interesting rather than compelling listening as a whole

Trionfo del glam ed allo stesso tempo abbandono dello stesso: ci sono già infatti, in "Diamond dogs", quegli elementi funky che diverranno la regola nei due dischi successivi. Personalmente, a parte le ovvie "Diamond dogs" e "Rebel rebel", di questo disco mi è sempre piaciuta particolarmente "We are the dead".

From Crumpet
The end of classic Bowie, this album is one of his weaker early efforts, but given the quality of his early efforts, that isn't saying much. This album is still really great, the standouts being We are the Dead, Rock and Roll with Me and Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing.

From TheHutts
The last gasp of Bowie’s glam phase, Diamond Dogs is one of Bowie’s most ambitious works conceptually. I don’t think it has enough great tunes to be among his top tier of albums, and it’s not surprising that Bowie explored new sonic territory with his next albums.
