My pick is Hunky Dory, but Station to Station is very close.
Ziggy without the quotes.
It's not a solo album, but it's still Bowie (and his band): Tin Machine.
I always liked "Pinups".
Big fan of Low
Tough. Too many distinct periods, each with its own aesthetic. I might chose a different favorite every day. I think "Outside" from 1995 is under-rated, and very good.
Tin machine 2
I’m not sure why Tin machine gets so overlooked , there are some great songs, Bowie is just killing it singing, great band and an out of this world guitarist. I like a lot of his catelog, he has a ton of great songs, but tin machine is at the top for me. He dared to do something different, and he did it against all the wishes of everyone around him. That’s a true artist!!!!
I can’t pick. I love different albums from different eras.
While Ziggy is very good, it's not nearly the most perfect start-to-finish Bowie album.
That would be Diamond Dogs, followed closely by Low.
Station to station.
What I listen to the most are live recordings though: mainly the 1976 Nassau show or the 2000 BBC thing
it’s probably related to my life timeline, I think
I had the record at a time I was listening carefully, and it stuck with me.
Heroes followed closely by Low.
I think Blackstar is a masterpiece. On the face of it it's quite a strange album, but as soon as I heard it I loved it and I've listened to it so many times since, I can tell it's one I'll never get tired of. Jazz musicians not playing jazz and I find Bowie's vocals on that album to be some of his most emotional.
Bowie at the Beeb is my all time favorite disc though it has Ziggy tunes. Always had a fondness of Low.
non-live album contenders not counting Ziggy would be Hunky Dory, Station to Station, Low, Heroes, and Lodger
want to cheat with Changesonebowie also
would remove John, I'm Only Dancing and replace it with The Man Who Sold the World
Perfect storm of amazing production, band and SRV!
Heroes, follows by Hunky Dory and Station To Station (Deluxe Edition).
