I've just bought the David Bowie album Diamond Dogs. Any opinions on it. I think it's flawed but not without merit. Favourite tracks are Rebel Rebel and The Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family which is near to the most bizarre song I've heard!

I love the guitarwork on it the most.
So it shows that Bowie could really play the guitar well because most of it is credited to him.

diamond dogs is a good album, but (big but)

it followed his three most creative albums ever

Ziggy, Aladdin and (my favourite) Hunky Dory

he was never going to eclipse those three

No, '74

'76 was "Station To Station", and between those two there are still "David Live" and "Young Americans".


Thanks. It was all soooo long ago.

'Diamond Dogs' is great, But I like 'Outside' more.

Diamond Dogs is good (fave track: 'Rock'n'Roll With Me'), but nothing beats the Berlin trilogy.

now don't forget the song "Space Oddity" off the album of the same name. IT WAS HIS BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY.
