Low is my favorite album.  Period.  Got a copy of it framed on my wall.

I might need to listen again, but my favorite might be "Low".

mine too. The 'Berlin trilogy' are my 1, 2, 3 Bowie records. Low, Heroes, Lodger in that order.

Indeed. The contest between Low and "Heroes" as albums is really a contest between Sound and Vision and "Heroes" as tunes. Sound and Vision is just marginally more magnificent, in the way that, say, Pele was marginally more brilliant than Maradona, so Low wins the album contest.

The first three songs on Let's Dance (Modern Love, China Girl, Let's Dance) are number 2 on my Top 5 Three Opening Tracks on an Album, just behind Terror Twilight by Pavement (Spit on a Stranger, Folk Jam, You are a Light). Oh, and the other songs are great, too.

I agree Zhankfor, well, at least in that the opening three of Let's Dance are incredible.  Not so sure on the rest of the record.

I went for Station to Station in the end, but it's really tight between that, the Berlin Trilogy and Scary Monsters.  Mr Bowie is annoyingly creative.  How many other musicians are that inventive for such a long period of time?

Massive Attack's Mezzanine doesn't happen to be on there does it?

Just catching up;

1. Aladdin Sane (although Aladdin Sade is probably good as well)
2. Station to Station
3. Low
