5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie's acoustic/singer-songwriter masterpiece, 12 Aug 2010
This review is from: Hunky Dory (Audio CD)
The chameleon finds his own voice and delivers masterpiece. Camp, arty, strange and seductive its Bowie's acoustic/singer-songwriter album and session player Rick Wakeman adds some serenity . Look at the well know tracks first: "Changes", "Oh! You Pretty Thing" and "Life On Mars" alone would make this a belter. Add in "Andy Warhol" "Queen Bitch" and "Kooks" and its elevated to true classic. "Life on mars" is probably Bowie's single greatest song. Its surreal, epic, beautiful, yearning and anthemic and will simply, never, ever fail to inspire (its about a girl who's down considering a better life elsewhere btw). Another oft overlook little gem and personal fav is "Kooks", with it fab jangling chorus, string floating over the top, flugelhorn noodlings and super M8. Dunky Hory.
