While it may not be as adventurous or lyrically captivating as some of his previous projects, it certainly doesn't disappoint. Bowie's vocals on this album are much deeper this time around, giving a darker undertone to the project. And, let me say, are great. The instrumentation in this project is quite lively but is once again quite dark in tone. Basically Diamond Dogs, from what I can gather, is what will carry his glam rock style away, and it does a fantastic job at doing so.

Somehow post apocalyptic yet as alive as any of his other projects, Diamond Dogs is one of Bowies most thought out and fully conceptualized concepts to date, with some of the most potent and politically charged statements to date. It's also got some of Bowies best musically structured, with some of Bowies best vocals to ever be recorded, and multi-part transitions that make for a fun and quacked out listen. Hell, there is really only 7 true songs on the whole album, but they are some of Bowies ... read more

Hideo Kojima will be inspired by this one day...

Honestly, this is one of the more underrated albums in David Bowie’s discography. I think “Diamond Dogs” is important because it concluded his glam rock style in such a well-executed fashion! The post-apocalyptic style is intriguing, the tracks flow very seamlessly and it has some of Bowie’s best singing!

Diamond Dogs is yet another fantastic concept album in David Bowie's great discography. There is so little that I didn't love about this album that I can easily say that this is one of my favourites that I've heard from him so far. I wouldn't say it's as good as his previous two projects, but it's great in it's own right.

To say that this was an enjoyable listen would be a huge understatement. With brilliantly written songs like the title track, as well as energetic tracks like 1984, it feels ... read more
