  • WTF with the tag names lastfm
  • Great album, excellent conclusion to the Berlin Trilogy. Also, Adrian Belew is a monster.
  • Excellent. That's probably the right word.

  • Weakest from the 70s? More like, one of his best!
  • His most underrated album
  • v True, how insulting. This album is amazing.

  • I've always considered this album to be among Bowie's best. The major accomplishment here, IMO, is that the Ambient/Krautrock/Electronic/Enoisms don't seem so distinct from the Art Pop/Rock tunes as they did on "Heroes" and, in particular, Low. Those are both great records and I don't want to get into a "this one's better than that one" pissing contest, but the seamless incorporation of the elements that made up the instrumental side of Low and the darker experimental tracks of "Heroes" into the actual songs on Lodger give it a greater coherence than either of the first two Berlin Trilogy albums, I think.
  • Weakest of Bowie 70's records - along with Pin Ups, of course
