19. David Bowie - Hunky Dory (1971)
In 1969, Bowie was seen as a washed up actor, mime artist and wannabe pop star who scored a fluke hit with Space Oddity, a single designed to cash in on the then-current moon landings. 1970’s The Man Who Sold The World was an interesting departure for the musician but it was the fourth full-length outing that saw him lay the foundations for the superstar he would become. Opening with the peerless Changes, the album includes Oh! You Pretty Things, Life On Mars, Queen Bitch and a wryly humorous tribute to artist Andy Warhol.
