Bowie opted for a more minimalist image reflecting the album's "preoccupation with the silver screen". On the surface, such a wide range of styles and sounds would make an album incoherent, but Bowie's improved songwriting and determined sense of style instead made Hunky Dory a touchstone for reinterpreting pop's traditions into fresh, postmodern pop music. 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'".

Pegg and Doggett believe the song highlights Bowie's struggle with identity, from his real name David Jones, to his stage name David Bowie and, very shortly, to Ziggy Stardust.Two takes of " The Bewlay Brothers" were recorded on 30 July, the second appearing on the final album; it was recorded on a tape that contained scrapped versions of "Song for Bob Dylan" and "Fill Your Heart". I dislike bar codes very much, especially on records from the 60s and 70s as they look out of place and I think they always spoil the look of the thing. In a 2013 readers' poll for Rolling Stone, Hunky Dory was voted Bowie's second greatest album, behind Ziggy Stardust. Pegg summarises the lyrics as Bowie "holding a mirror to his face" just as he is about to achieve stardom.

Station to Station is the 10th studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 23 January 1976 by RCA Records.Fill Your Heart", written by Biff Rose and Paul Williams, is the only track on Hunky Dory not written by Bowie; [45] it is his first recorded cover song in six years. After the hard rock sound of The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory features a stylistic shift from Bowie towards art pop and melodic pop rock. To celebrate the album’s 50th anniversary, this limited edition picture disc comes with a printed cut out sleeve and a poster.

The album closer, "The Bewlay Brothers", was a late addition and the only track that was not demoed.Looking back from the vantage point of 2018, it’s easy to forget the early trajectory of David Bowie’s rising star was a bit wobbly. but 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. It seems hard to believe, given the career full of revolutionary and hugely influential stylistic shifts that followed, that this superb record was only David Bowie's fourth.

It's] another vaguely anecdotal piece about my feelings about myself and my brother, or my other doppelgänger. Hunky Dory has frequently appeared on several lists of the greatest albums of all time by multiple publications.Parlophone’s decision to apply a glossy sheen to the album’s front jacket also makes it easier to appreciate the grain and hand-tinting of the Marlene Dietrich-inspired cover photo.
