Ooo this is hard. One of my faves. It's between Fantastic Voyage, African Night Flight (how crazy is that tune!), Yassassin and Look Back in Anger. Probably leaning towards Yassassin.

We did this before, but it's a great album, let's do it again. I'll listen again before voting, though as before my knee-jerk is to vote for "Look Back In Anger".

"Yassassin". Probably voted for it last time, but didn't bother to comment so I can't be sure. Great album all around.

Woops, sorry, blame search engines, etc. Lock thread.

I reckon Fantastic Voyage is my joint favourite Bowie opener, along with Five Years.

Repetition

"Fantastic Voyage" or "Red Sails", probably. Album is definitely bigger than the sum of its parts, good as the parts are.

Either me or Milton Parker were the solitary vote for "African Night Flight" last time around -- I'll go there again, as it's a miniature of all the things I love about the Eno/Bowie collab.

"Red Sails" easily but I don't like this album much.

"Yassassin". Just like the last time we did this (I am sure we did)
