Percentage (round / first tiebreaker / second tiebreaker): 18.18% / 50.00% / 60.00%

As the tie being Young Americans and Outside is finally broken, we also see two albums depart in this round. In 18th we have Outside, which, while it includes Hallo Spaceboy, isn't an overly impressive album. Young Americans is at 17th, which is perhaps surprising. It houses its title track, Golden Years and Fame, a song which is seemingly way more popular with Americans than with us. Or with me for that matter. At 16th, we have Reality, which was released on September 16th 2003 when my little sister was six days old. Finally at 15th we have Bowie's second eponymous album, which was later renamed to the title of its most successful track, Space Oddity. Yet again, Lodger survives to a tiebreaker.

Singles aside, I'm not at all fond of anything else on Let's Dance so it's that for me...

Pretty happy with the overall running order, and I agree, Let's Dance to go now. Only half of it is any good.

Golden Years is from Station To Station btw.

Some of the voting does seem odd. Lodger I can kind of understand as it's a little too experimental for some but it's considered his most underrated for a reason.
Another that's in danger is equal to much of his 70's albums
There's one that's still in that I think can only be because people aren't that familiar with it.

Lodger has been in a tiebreaker and survived three times.
