    Lots of great albums, but Station to Station is the one I return to most. How you come up with something like that is beyond me. The guitars howl and scream, the vocals otherworldly, the subject matter dense and dark. I consider it a twin album of Blackstar which I think comes from a similar place. They are both staring into the abyss albums with long title tracks, fewer and longer tracks, and a real longing to connect in some way.
    It's funny how time changes you, when I was a kid it was Ziggy Stardust, Man Who Sold the World and Hunky Dory, these days it's Station to Station, Heroes, Diamond Dogs and Blackstar.

    One thing for Bowie is that he spanned all genres.

    Special shout out needs to go to Mick Ronson as well what a guitarist he was.

    He could sing and wrote great songs.

    David Bowie could sing and write great songs too. Hundreds of them.

    Good call with Diamond Dogs, Batman. I love the darkness to it. We Are the Dead is one of my favorites. Then the 9 minute Sweet Thing piece. Gorgeous.

    Ronson was great. Have you seen the recent Ronson documentary? Well worth a watch. Love a lot of his work with Ian Hunter too.

    Mott the Hoople were criminally underrated.

    Also take a listen to Satalite of Love by Lou Reed it's brilliant when Bowie takes over on the backing vocals.

    I've not seen the Ronson doc, any idea what it's called or where I can find it?

    Love a lot of Reed around that period too. Reed was far more hit and miss than Bowie, but Transformer and Berlin were sublime. Also Coney Island Baby from the 70's was great.

    Ronson doc was 'Besides Bowie' or something like that.

    I also think Iggy's 1977 albums were excellent. Who writes the music for 4 albbums in a year? Freaky.

    She will love it. Even my wife enjoys the music of Bowie. There is something in that back catalogue for everyone. For me lately it is Diamond Dogs. The ballads on there are sublime and I love the cut up lyrics and concept. Utterly bonkers but crystalline in its dark decadence. You feel Bowie edging to the precipice that lead to Station to Station. I tend to skip Young Americans. That's the weakest of the 70's canon for me, but if they had kept in the outtakes it is up there again. Still a decent album. STS is almost supernatural and otherworldly though. Maybe my favorite, but then there are all those other classics. What a back catalogue. The best of all time for me.

    You get bands like The Stones repeating and doing it worse each time, then you have someone like Bowie who always tried to take it a little bit further or do something different. I would be very shocked to see any of those legends produce a Blackstar. Such a strong album and so fresh sounding. Ridiculous really.
