    In honor of the 43rd anniversary of David Bowie’s release of his ninth studio album Young Americans, our latest Readers’ Poll installment asked for your favorite album by the late David Bowie. The music and cultural icon released 27 studio albums throughout his acclaimed career, beginning with his self-titled project in 1967. On his 69th birthday, he concluded with Blackstar, which was released two days before his death in 2016. Bowie’s legacy continues to shine with his lasting innovative work, and eight posthumous records are apparently on their way in this month alone.
