4 stars This is the start of the Bowie everyone knows and loves, the glam pop/rock era. Now while not really prog during this time there was always a great sence of avant guard and expirimentation on most of David Bowie's works, and this is no different. The first five songs on this album i think is teriffic, the pop/folk of CHANGES, the poppy OH! YOU PRETTY THINGS, EIGHT LINE POEM, LIFE ON MARS and the quirky KOOKS really floor you when the album starts with just how good the songwriting is, i think it goes a little downhill before gaining it back with the daft titled ANDY WARHOL (written about Mr. Warhol himelf) and the tribute to Bob Dylan with SONG FOR BOB DYLAN. This is also the first albums in a series of albums in which Bowie is joined by the brilliant Mick Ronson and started one of the greatest rock partnetships in rock history, so quite the album;

Changes - 10/10 Oh! You Pretty Things - 9/10 Eight Line Poem - 9/10 Life on Mars? - 10/10 Kooks - 9/10 Quicksand - 7/10 Fill Your Heart (Biff Rose, Paul Williams) - 7/10 Andy Warhol - 9/10 Song for Bob Dylan - 9/10 Queen Bitch - 8/10 The Bewlay Brothers - 7/10

My Conclusion? what can i say without repeating myself? another great Bowie album, worth the buy.
