David Bowie – Low (1977)
The first album of his Berlin Trilogy harbors little diamonds in sound- and songwriting. Compressed concentration, avant-garde and pain with an outlandish yet loose and poppy quality, first heard on Station To Station and crystallized on this record. Side two features instrumental tracks influenced by Kraftwerk with help from Brian Eno; a true monument on its own. But side one is Bowie on top of his game and it contains every bit of what he explored in music.
Best song: Breaking Glass
