Some sight this as the start of Bowies 'classic period' that would extend to Scary Monsters. But for me it nowhere near as good as it's predecessor. It's a full on loud rock album dominated by Ronsons fantastic guitar and Visconti's heavy bass. No questioning the quality of the playing, but it's too samey and the songs of distinctly variable quality. Only one or two really stand out, most obviously 'Width Of A Circle. A decent enough album, but very much of it's time, and for me hasn't aged well. A must for any Bowie fan, but there is so much better stuff in his catalogue.
