5.0 out of 5 stars One of Bowie's Best. Given The Proper Treatment.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 October 2020
The remasters of Bowie's studio albums since around 2015 have just been awesome; bringing a newfound wealth of colour and sound to some already legendary LPs. It also means we get to hear our favourites on glorious new 180g, for real audiophiles, and real fans. And whilst I would never claim to be an audiophile; I love Bowie. And I love Hunky Dory, for many reasons.
It tells an important part of Bowie's musical career, with his music increasingly on the end of rock, and glam. Tracks like 'Queen Bitch' from this record showcase that shift; as well as proving an important tribute from Bowie to one of his favourites, The Velvet Underground.
Hunky Dory is also, of course, home to to the titanic 'Changes' - reflecting on Bowie's personas even pre-Ziggy - and 'Life On Mars?' which must be one of the best songs ever put to record. It sounds simply incredible blasting from the record player. 'Oh! You Pretty Things' builds like any great anthem does, and brings in one the album's odder themes; on occultism. Oh yes.
'Kooks' is one of my personal favourites, a suitably juvenile piece that crescendoes wonderfully. 'Song for Bob Dylan' showcases one of Bowie's best homages, and 'Andy Warhol' is the same - bordering on the psychopathic in its experimentalism. There's piano meets acoustic meets electric here, and it's a really phenomonal mix that pays off.
Hunky Dory hits on almost every level, and whilst it is certainly beaten by its successor (at least), it's still pretty damn close. The record also feels great on vinyl; with a coated sleeve, uncoated one - as the original vinyl was housed - and replicated lyrics sheet. Awesome stuff.
