Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (7/20/72, p.54) - "...David Bowie has pulled off his complex task with consummate style, with some great rock & roll...with all the wit and passion required to give it sufficient dimension and with a deep sense of humanity that regularly emerges from behind the star facade...I'd give it at least a 99."

Q (p.108) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[E]ach immortally sculpted tune carries a mood of its own."

Q (1/03, p.69) - Included in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums Ever"

Q (5/97, pp.135-6) - 5 Stars (out of 5) - "...Bowie's one true complete masterwork....arguably changed more people's lives in one fell swoop than any before or since."

Q (6/00, p.76) - Ranked #25 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Turned the rock world upside down, a sci-fi psychodrama garnished with the scattergun glam guitar of Bowie's silver-haired foil and sidekick, Mick Ronson....Made in Britain, but concieved in a galaxy far away."

Q (11/99, pp.140-1) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...sealed Bowie's fate, book-ended by 2 of his finest slowburners, 'Five Years' and 'Rock'n'Roll Suicide'..."

Uncut (8/02, p.98) - 5 out of 5 - "...redefined not just how pop could sound, but how it could think..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ZIGGY...remains a pivotal work....With Bowie fired up by a hunger for recognition and sidekick Mick Ronson at his most inspired."

Mojo (Publisher) (2/02, p.84) - "...Besides the dazzling conceptual framework - rock'n'roll with such a sense of otherness that it was actually extra-terrestrial - there are somne great songs too..."

NME (Magazine) (10/2/93, p.29) - Ranked #40 in NME's list of the 'Greatest Albums Of All Time.'

NME (Magazine) (9/18/93, p.18) - Ranked # 7 in NME's list of the 'Greatest Albums Of The '70s' - "...A gloriously manufactured, futuristic rock opera which heads toward its inevitably tragic finale on Mick Ronson's mighty power chords..."
