5 stars Ziggy played guitar...

First I have to say that this album is no prog. It's pop-rock with some prog elements. But it's also a brilliant concept-album and one of the best albums ever.

The album tells the story of Ziggy Stardust, a rockstar who became famous in a world which should be destroyed in 5 years. Bowie shows us how Ziggy become a star and how he falls.

The music on this album is often typical pop-rock (for example the "text-refrain-text-refrain - structure" and the instrumentation). But there are also progy elements, listen to the beautiful violins on "5 Years" or the psychedelic outro on "Moonage Daydream".

But prog or not, all songs are beautiful and this album goes under your skin. You close your eyes and can feel every note inside of you. You feel with Ziggy. You are Ziggy. This is what an album makes a good album and because of this I just can give 5 stars. Prog or not, masterpiece is masterpiece.
