His earlier albums, Hunky Dory and the Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, inexplicably receive more acclaimed, but Aladdin Sane is the peak of David Bowie's heavily influential glam rock phase. With a fantastic back-up band, a keen knowledge of many pop structures (doo-wop, jazz, blues and rock all play integral parts in the album) and a sleek, sexy sound, the androgynous, charismatic, make-up clad singer struts through the glam rock's world of raucous partying ("Watch That Man" "Drive-In Saturday"), trashy decadence ("Cracked Actor," "Time") and champagne-scented romance ("Lady Grinning Soul," the title track) as if he owned it all. The album is one of Bowie's best, as well as a practical bible for all the young dudes whom would follow him into the weird, wonderful world of glitzy artrock.

Its hard to argue that this period of bowie's career was not his best.I mean really look at this video.This is 30 plus years ago yet it's not dated one bit...

David Bowie - Cracked Actor

absolutely flawless live. at least he was. 30 years of chain smoking and drug use can really ruin a voice. he still sounds great though!

damn, this is a great song

David Bowie - Lady Grinning Soul

I have recently discovered this song and I think that it is so beautiful and deep… Bowie is a world famous genius but some of his best songs (the early ones) are less remembered than other songs such as Let’s Dance and Dancing in the Street. For me; .The songs from Man who sold the world, hunky dory, ziggy, Aladdin and diamond dogs albums are the best!
