EDITORS’ NOTES

Having spent years trying to fit into various genres, Bowie decides music’s styles should actually be bowing to his sideways vision. So we get lush, swooping pop (“Changes”), grimy art-glam (“Queen Bitch”), a cabaret lullaby (“Kooks”) and a cosmic take on “My Way” (“Life on Mars?”). For all the ambition, mysticism and theatre, Hunky Dory is cloaked in brilliantly straightforward tunes that make it difficult to resist “Changes”’ command that we “turn and face the strange”.
