David Bowie – Hunky Dory (1971)
Hunky Dory is Bowie’s first album we can call a true classic. It is quite easy to listen to (everything is hunky dory), but that doesn’t mean the songs aren’t filled with deep, poetic lyrics. Almost every track stands strong on its own. It’s like listening to a best-of album by a great pop/folk artist. Most of the songs could still be hits if they were released today. It’s not his most experimental or time defining work, but it is Bowie through and through.
Best song: Life On Mars?
