The only album I've ever given a perfect score to on here. Simply the greatest album ever made. Completely incomprehensible that Bowie crafted this alone, I consider that the greatest acheivement in the history of music. If you haven't listened to it yet, do yourself a favor and go for it. I'm extremely jealous that you can still experience it for the first time.

Doesn't really feel like a true 70s album to me like Hunky Dory did- bad thing...

This is basically a greatest hits album, there's not a single track that I would consider less than great.

From PeterSmith 02/18/2018 21:22
With the exception of the cover - It Ain't Easy - every track is great with Five Years (great drum intro and story); Moonage Daydream (Ronson's solo); Lady Stardust (his vocal accompanying the piano is a sign of the more soulful and rich voice yet to come); Ziggy (amazing guitar riff) and Rock'n'Roll Suicide (amazing build up and what a finish for an album and live concert) - and add to that Starman - wow.
Hunky Dory is great but Ziggy gets my nod every time. If he had replaced Star and It Ain't Easy with Life on Mars and Quicksand then this would have been the best album of all time

A top five album all time for me. Kicks butt from start to finish! Very cohesive. It doesn’t get any better.
