It was only after the breakthrough of Ziggy Stardust in mid-1972 that Hunky Dory became a commercial success.

This song is good i think, the piano work, the lyrics, the chorus, its just brilliant, worth a listen too. Produced by Ken Scott, and recorded at Trident Studios in London, the album includes many of Bowie’s greatest moments such as ‘Changes’ ‘Life on Mars? The song "Andy Warhol" is a tribute to American artist, producer, and director Andy Warhol, [19] who had inspired Bowie since the mid-1960s and was described by him as "one of the leaders" of "the media of the streets, street messages". In 1999, the original album was rereleased on CD through Virgin/EMI with 24-bit digitally remastered sound. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic describes it as "a kaleidoscopic array of pop styles, tied together only by Bowie's sense of vision: a sweeping, cinematic mélange of high and low art, ambiguous sexuality, kitsch, and class".The critical success of the album prompted Mercury to send Bowie on a promotional radio tour of the US in February 1971. Already owning Hunky Dory on vinyl and knowing that picture discs do not provide the best sound quality this picture disc was purchased for display as a collectors item and particularly for the poster.

Pegg summarises the lyrics as Bowie "holding a mirror to his face" just as he is about to achieve stardom. The same year, Consequence of Sound ranked the album number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest albums of all time. Muito bem produzido, conta com excelentes músicos como Mick Ronson e Rick Wakeman (que entraria logo em seguida para o Yes.

Mick Ronson's guitar is pushed to the back, leaving Rick Wakeman's cabaret piano to dominate the sound of the album.

Following the success of the single, Defries sought to extricate Bowie from his contract with Mercury, [2] [3] which was set to expire in June 1971. Doggett states that the song "was written about a lack of inspiration and as a means of accessing it".

Yet Hunky Dory ranks alongside Ziggy Stardust, Low, and Scary Monsters as one of Bowie's finest and most consistent albums.
