Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by quadrophenia17 (2018)

« View previous chartView next chart »

It's very hard to pick your favorite albums, and it's even harder to put them in some consecutive order, so just consider this an incomplete list. It's also bound to change, because of new releases and other various factors. These are the albums that keep getting better the older I get, and make me want to come back for more.

But enough rambling; here's my list. Enjoy!

The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From MarsUnited Kingdom David Bowie
"Hey man, I gotta straighten my face. This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place"

"the tunes on The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, somewhat loosely held together by the concept of the Earthbound exploits of the interplanetary rock star, strangely avoid the trap of being so much dated, post-hippie nonsense." – Slant Magazine

It is true; this album sounds just as good today as it did 45 years ago. When someone asks me to sum up David Bowie's career in one album, this is it.
