David Bowie Albums By Rank

David Bowie albums ranked in my opinion
11David Bowie
Young Americans


Introduces the Thin White Duke character and his soul era. At the height of his cocaine addiction Bowie delivers a radical shift in style. Not as much depth lyrically but a very smooth sound and good vibes. Features a song co-written with John Lennon that was his most successful in the US at the time.
10David Bowie
The Man Who Sold the World


The earliest album on the list - has a harder rock edge. The title track was covered by Nirvana but there are some other great songs here.
9David Bowie
Lodger


The third and final installment of the three experimental albums he released in the late 70's. This one scraps the instrumentals but is still a weird album. Underrated but not as strong as Low or Heroes.
8David Bowie
Scary Monsters


His first album of the 1980's builds on the work of his previous three albums with some commercial success (Ashes to Ashes). Strong lyrically.
7David Bowie
Hunky Dory


Released pre Ziggy Stardust, this is mainly a piano based pop album. His songwriting has improved and Life On Mars is excellent, among others.
6David Bowie
Diamond Dogs


The follow up to Aladdin Sane - and another concept album. Rhythm guitar is provided by Bowie himself which gives the album it's own identity. Another really strong effort that leads into his soul era.
5David Bowie
Aladdin Sane


The follow up to the Ziggy Stardust album. Has a slightly harder edge and features some great piano playing, especially on the title track and 'Lady Grinning Soul'.
4 David Bowie
"Heroes"


The second of the 'Berlin trilogy'. Follows a similiar formula to Low and contains the epic title track 'Heroes'.
3David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust...


An almost flawless glam rock concept album which introduces the Ziggy Stardust character. Highly regarded in rock music as a classic.
2David Bowie
Low


The first of a trilogy of albums he made in Europe in the late 70's. Side A was strange rock songs, Side B was moody instrumentals ('Warszawa' and 'Subterraneans' are standouts'). An ambitious and influential album.
1David Bowie
Station to Station


From his Thin White Duke era. Stronger than Young Americans in every way - a consistently great varied album (no two songs are alike) which leads into his Berlin era work.
