The definitive glam album, Bowie was simply a genius.

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.

Per me, il top della discografia di David Bowie. Non c'è trilogia berlinese che tenga, non c'è nessuna svolta funky o new wave o, men che meno, dance che possa stare alla pari con la purezza e con la spontaneità di questo album.

Like a lot of noobies, I went down the David Bowie rabbit-hole after his death last year. This is was the first full Bowie album I listened to and it became an instant all-time favorite. So many good songs on this album it's ridiculous. Amazing lyrics and vocal performance by Bowie, of course.

Highlights- Five Years, Soul Love, Moonage Daydream, Ziggy Stardust

Bowie's best work. It begins with four of his best songs and ends with three of them.
