I always see Bowie’s music as his interpretation of the latest sound that he admired at the time. Here he made one of the best concept albums of all time in the mode of a glam rocker and completely nails it. This is his most cohesive album with some of his best songs such as Starman, Ziggy Stardust and Suffragette City. This created its own scene at the time.

This is genuinely a great concept album, even after all these years. It's nothing absolutely complicated, but I feel like it's the most accessible and easiest to understand, and most well told than anything I've heard. And it's also one of the best albums I've ever heard. This album has such a good feel from start to finish. it feels grand, yet simple, and it has among Bowie's best songs. "Five Years", "Moonage Daydream", "Star Man", "Lady Stardust", the title track, "Suffragette City" "Rock and Roll Suicide", and like, the whole album is a masterpiece. It's one of Bowie's most unique feeling albums, but he's come very close to the quality of this album, even literally 44 years later with "Blackstar". I don't really know what else to say. It feels like no other album, yet so accessible and unique at the same time, den outta den, masta piece.

The first album I ever bought on my own. Blew my mind in 1972 and it’s still a thrill to listen to now. Takes me into another universe for its duration, especially on headphones. Not a “concept album “ as such , but like Sgt Pepper, it feels as if it is. Packed full of great songs that stand the test of time. A genius at work. Also love Mick Ronson’s contribution. Brilliant

My no. 1 ever. Heard "Starman" with 13 wrooom went to London and got my example in 1974. Still have it still hear it. Again in London some years ago, went to V & A, saw DB is, Visited Heddon Street etc. Thats my way of life and thank you David!

Such a unique and entertaining album. I love the concept, that the world is ending and an alien comes to earth to save it with the power of rock n roll. This album contains some of David Bowie's greatest tracks. From beginning to end, this album is just full of great music. My favorite songs are Five Years, Moonage Daydream, and Starman, though there isn't a bad song in the album.

David goes for gritty realism with the story of a drug-using, bisexual, human manifestation of an alien being. Over the years, there has been much debate as to the precise meaning of the term "made it too far" - the most plausible being it was that was the only thing David could think of that rhymed with "played guitar".
