Nothing is unassailable. I've said that before, but only because I mean it.
Call it unassailable and I will immediately be tempted to assail it.
Looking at the Bowie Album Trajectory (BAT) so far, I'll probably like Hunky Dory, but it's the principle, damn it!

Very strong album.

Really developed his sound on this one. There were a couple moments on previous albums where you could hear a bit but this one I think he nailed it.

Songwriting massively improved as well.

Giving it a 5.

I don't like the artwork for it though.

Not yet. I'm more familiar with a bit of later era Bowie.

depends on whether you grade with the curve being some hypothetical perfect album that I personally couldn't imagine

or whether you grade based on a curve from your previous experience with music

Hunky Dory would be an album that sets my expectations for what consists of a good album to begin with

No, I wouldn't even grade like that on a normal 10 scale. Normally, I just consider albums that I like a hell of a lot 10's.

And in this thread, I'm just grading on a scale where 1 is Bowie's worst material and 5 is his best.

If I had to grade these albums after what I like in music in general, there would probably be very few top scores, if any. I'm not a huge Bowie fan - at least not yet.

His first truly classic album. Damn right it's a 5.
