Today marks the ninth edition of a special series within my weekly feature, Friday On The Turntable. Instead of looking at one album, I am featuring the second half of David Bowie's studio albums - from 1983 - 2013 - and ranking them! It was a mammoth task, and proved frustrating when putting albums that I love against other ones that I love. Nonetheless, I've provided a ranked list - from #13 (decent) - #1 (the best).
If you would like the short / textual version of the list, please scroll past the video. If you would like to watch my video discussion, check out the embedded video below - and be sure to click 'Subscribe' on my Youtube channel . As always, I look forward to reading your comments and feedback. Click on any of the album titles if you'd like to purchase them. At the very bottom of this article is a link to a David Bowie playlist that I created in Spotify, which features my 3 favorite songs from each album, and links for some other items I discussed/showed in the video.
And as always, here is a link to my band Audra's Bandcamp Site. Thank you!
