An androgynous alien from Mars who comes to deliver the earth. Ziggy Stardust has a universal side and is at the same time so unique. The strange had never been so beautiful. The climax of glam and the birth of punk.

From Kurtco
David Bowie is a genius. I know it's not very original to say that, but he's really a music genius. "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust" is surely Bowie's album that gave me the biggest slap. This album is at the origin of the myth Bowie and its emblematic character: Ziggy Stardust. This album tells the story of Ziggy, a bisexual star from the future. This record has a huge influence in the history of rock ... I'm a fan of David Bowie and this album will remain for me his best with "Hunky Dory". But do not forget, for this album: "TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME".

I only knew David Bowie's big hits before he died. I decided to listen to this album a couple weeks after his death and the way I listened to music has changed forever. His entire catalog is great, but this album still tops anything else I have ever listened to. My only regret is not finding this album sooner.

From Brandon8
I always see Bowie’s music as his interpretation of the latest sound that he admired at the time. Here he made one of the best concept albums of all time in the mode of a glam rocker and completely nails it. This is his most cohesive album with some of his best songs such as Starman, Ziggy Stardust and Suffragette City. This created its own scene at the time.

From Aaron98
This is genuinely a great concept album, even after all these years. It's nothing absolutely complicated, but I feel like it's the most accessible and easiest to understand, and most well told than anything I've heard. And it's also one of the best albums I've ever heard. This album has such a good feel from start to finish. it feels grand, yet simple, and it has among Bowie's best songs. "Five Years", "Moonage Daydream", "Star Man", "Lady Stardust", the title track, "Suffragette City" "Rock and Roll Suicide", and like, the whole album is a masterpiece. It's one of Bowie's most unique feeling albums, but he's come very close to the quality of this album, even literally 44 years later with "Blackstar". I don't really know what else to say. It feels like no other album, yet so accessible and unique at the same time, den outta den, masta piece.
