It's not an easy album to warm to, but its epic structure and clinical sound were an impressive, individualistic achievement, as well as a style that would prove enormously influential on post-punk.

Here it is, my favourite David Bowie album. When it comes to artists like Bowie, it's difficult to pinpoint an album to call the absolute best of the best, and it can also be really fucking difficult to choose just one favourite. As such, I have often flip-flopped between this, Ziggy Stardust, Low, Heroes, Hunky Dory, and even Lodger at one point. But the fact of the matter is that Station To Station has always been my go-to Bowie record. It's the start of the ... read more
