The David Bowie discography is a weird and wonderful thing, filled with hits that everybody on the planet knows and obscure tracks so dense they're nearly impenetrable. Bowie dropped albums during six separate decades, leaving behind a catalog that only a fool would possibly dare try to sort from worst to first.

What also makes this such a fool's errand is that, in actuality, all the albums in Bowie's discography are in a massive tie for first. Bowie albums are a bit like pizza: Even when they're bad, they're still pretty good.

True Bowiephiles will note the omission not only of all the live albums, but also the five-song Baal EP and his narrated version of Peter and the Wolf. But we tip our hats to your thoroughness and welcome you to tell us where you'd rank them within this ranking of his official studio albums.
