David Bowie

Hunky Dory


180 Gram Vinyl It seems hard to believe given the career full of revolutionary and hugely influential stylistic shifts that followed that this superb record was only David Bowie's fourth Yet 'Hunky Dory' ranks alongside 'Ziggy Stardust' 'Low' and 'Scary Monsters' as one of Bowie's finest and most consistent albums Ironically it is one of the artist's least rockoriented efforts bearing little relation to what came before or after in his discography Instead 'Hunky Dory' covers a wide range of styles from operatic pop 'Life on Mars' to lowkey folk 'Quicksand' to English music hall ditties 'Kooks' There are standout tracks most notably the glamrock anthem 'oh you pretty things' and the chugging lifeaffirming 'Changes' which went on to become one of Bowie's alltime signature songs but 'Hunky Dory' is solid from beginning to end thanks to the fine musicians Bowie's excellent songwriting and the artist's nowmature sense of performance These qualities fold such wild cards as the tongueincheek celebrity sendup 'Andy Warhol' the psychedelic folk of 'The Bewlay Brothers' and exuberant jam of 'Queen Bitch' the album's only overt rocker neatly into the deck making for the first of Bowie's truly indisputable masterpieces
