3 stars David Bowie's first pop record.

While "the man who sold the world" and "A space oddity" are a mix of psychedelic/experimental music and (hard)rock this record is much more pop orientated. Space oddity did bring up a good radiohit but the record didn't deliver many more songs which were "radio friendly". Hunky Dory however can put forth each song for radioplay.

From this position I could give this record a low rating because this is a progressive network we're working in, but that doesn't do any fair to the catchy songs on this record. I'm not gonna describe the songs, but i'll try to give you an idea of the spirit of the record. If you have heard their hit "changes" and can imagine a record full of this kind of songs than you'll come pretty close to what is this record all about. Than you slow down some of the songs and make some of the songs a bit heavier than you've got Hunky Dory.

3,5 stars for this effort.
