Earlier this week, David Bowie shocked all his fans with the announcement that a new album will hit shelves in March. He hasn’t released an LP in a decade, and there wasn’t even the hint of a rumor that he was working on anything new. He spent the last two years holed up with his longtime producer Tony Visconti in a downtown New York studio, and everyone involved with the project was sworn to secrecy.
Now we have a question for you: What’s your favorite David Bowie album? That can be a very tough question for Bowie’s army of fans. The man had a ridiculously strong run in the 1970s. From The Man Who Sold the World to Lodger, he rarely hit a bum note. The 1980s started off quite strong with Scary Monsters and Let’s Dance, but then he hit a steep decline. He got back on his feet in 1999 with Hours and the follow-up albums Heathen and Reality but, by that point, many people had given up on him and they didn’t make much of an impact on the charts.
Vote for whichever album you want, but please only vote once and only for a single album. If we see 18,000 votes for Tin Machine II, we’ll know something is up.
