Description

Hunky Dory is the fourth album by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, released by RCA Records in 1971 (see 1971 in music). It was Bowie’s first release through RCA, which would be his label for the next decade. Supported by the single “Changes”, the album scored generally favourable reviews and sold reasonably well on its initial release, without being a major success. Melody Maker called it “the most inventive piece of song- writing to have appeared on record in a considerable time”, while NME described it as Bowie “at his brilliant best”. Stateside, Rolling Stone opined “Hunky Dory not only represents Bowie’s most engaging album musically, but also finds him once more writing literally enough to let the listener examine his ideas comfortably, without having to withstand a barrage of seemingly impregnable verbiage before getting at an idea”. However, it was only after the commercial breakthrough of Ziggy Stardust in mid-1972 that Hunky Dory became a hit, climbing to #3 in the UK charts. In 1973, RCA released “Life on Mars?” as a single, which also made #3 in the UK. In 1998 Q magazine readers voted Hunky Dory the 43rd greatest album of all time, while in 2000 the same magazine placed it at number 16 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. In 2003, the album was ranked number 107 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. In the same year, the TV network VH1 placed it at number 47 and the Virgin All-Time Top 1000 Albums chart placed it at position 16.
