4.5 superbMajor Tom CONTRIBUTOR | July 27th 11

The Man Who Sold The World was a crucial turning point for David Bowie as it marked the first time he found a solid direction in which to channel his ideas. This time it came in the form of maniacal hard-rock, which, when combined with some of Bowie's finest, twisted, self-searching poetry, made for a truly astounding and groundbreaking release. It may not be as consistent or hit-worthy as some of his later work, but The Man Who Sold The World was undeniably one hell of a way to enter the seventies - a decade which would soon witness the true birth of it's Bowie-shaped master.

The most aggressive Bowie LP. Taboo subjects galore, and Bowie sings of oral sex with the Devil. How nice.

Bowie Sabbath! It's underrated because the average Bowie fan misses the point and hates anything with balls. It would be his top-to-bottom no-filler best album if Station to Station and maybe Aladdin Sane didn't exist.
