Schrieber stated: " Hunky Dory marked the true start of what would be one of the most successful careers in rock music, spawning millions of scarily obsessive fans. is mostly piano-led, but features a string arrangement from Ronson – his first [41] – that is described by Doggett as "gargantuan". Hunky Dory is solid from beginning to end, thanks to the fine musicians, Bowie's excellent songwriting, and the artist's now-mature sense of performance.

Billboard gave the album a positive review, praising it as "a heavy debut for RCA, loaded with the kind of Top 40 and FM appeal that should break him through big on the charts.The stereo recordings info is printed top left and there is a new catalogue number top right in small, bold type where RCA used to be. In November 2022, a multi-disc box set focusing on Hunky Dory was released with the title Divine Symmetry: The Journey to Hunky Dory. Time chose it as part of their “100 best albums of all time” list in January 2010, with journalist Josh Tyrangiel praising Bowie’s “earthbound ambition to be a boho poet with prodigal style”. Kooks" is noticeably lighter than the two tracks it is sequenced between but, according to Pegg, ultimately "carries a hint of [the album's] preoccupation with the compulsion to fictionalise life, as Bowie invites his son to 'stay in our lovers' story'".

The whole album sounds fresher, cleaner and more defined and is considerable better at meaningful volume than my original. Buckley notes that 1971 was a pivotal year for Bowie, the year in which he became "something of a pop-art agent provocateur". We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. James Perone similarly describes the album as "a unique blend of folk, pop, glam, and progressive rock" that distinguished Bowie from other musicians at the time. David Bowie's 1971 album "Hunky Dory", what a fantastic album, even though most the songs are ballads, this is a nice soulful lovely album to listen to.To bottom left is the UK copyright and licensing blurb, which brings me to my only real gripe about this item. After David Bowie completed his third studio album, The Man Who Sold the World, in May 1970, he became less active in both the studio and on stage.
