VERY GOOD
Hunky Dory - the best, though Ziggy is "greater"
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - rightly considered his masterpiece
Diamond Dogs - sometimes my favorite, and generally the most visual/inspiring
"Heroes" - Low is more consistent in tone, but I prefer this one
David Bowie/Space Oddity - a personal favorite
Aladdin Sane - a bit lower than its glam-rock brethren, though sporting some of his best songs
Low - indeed a fine record, fully deserving of its stature, the two long songs on side two are especially incredible

GOOD
Young Americans - mostly great record, glad it's getting some recognition
Station to Station - very fine, but some overrate this one, I feel
The Man Who Sold the World - some fantastic songs, but muddy production (see also: first Queen album)

NOT LOVING THEM, BUT NOT GIVING UP ON THEM EITHER
David Bowie - a colorful world, I just don't care to go there very often
Lodger - couple great songs, experimentation aspect seems obvious
Scary Monsters and Super Creeps - it's alright
Pin Ups - can't seem to get into this one, despite attempts!
