Hunky Dory is the fourth album by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, recorded in mid-1971. It was his first release through RCA, which would be his label for the next decade.

Hunky Dory has been described by AllMusic's Stephen Erlewine as having "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 album has received critical acclaim since its release, and is regarded as one of Bowie's best works. Time chose it as part of their "100 best albums of all time" list in January 2010

The style of the album cover, designed by George Underwood, was influenced by a Marlene Dietrich photo book that Bowie took with him to the photo shoot.

The 1985 film "The Breakfast Club" quotes a song from this album--"Changes":

"...& these children that you spit on, as they try to change their worlds, are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through."

One of the greatest albums of all time. Bowie took the Beatles to new heights.
