David Bowie's Ten Best Albums - Mojo Readers Decide

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five...

As mentioned back in April (04.19.2011 NEWS: MOJO WANTS YOU TO HELP SELECT DAVID BOWIE's BEST ALBUMS), the folks at MOJO magazine have David Bowie as the subject of July's HOW TO BUY feature and perhaps you even had a hand in choosing the selections that made the grade.

As I'm sure you'll agree, it's not easy to pick a Bowie top ten without rejecting a crucial release. And as tasteful a selection as the above is, I can't help thinking that ten Bowie albums that weren't selected would be better than ten from most artists' back catalogue.

How about these for example? Space Oddity, Young Americans, Lodger, Let's Dance, Tin Machine, The Buddha of Suburbia, 1. Outside, Earthling, 'hours...', Reality?

Either way, the ten albums selected in MOJO truly are an unbeatable canon of work the consistency of which I can't imagine we'll ever witness again.

I'll leave you with Mark Paytress' lovely introduction to the piece...

Always a class act indeed.
