Editorial Reviews:
Spin (p.82) - "[This is] more art-folk and hippie-ish than his celebrated work. Strummed 12-string acoustic guitars and minor chords dominate..." Q (Magazine) (p.136) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "SPACE ODDITY was where Bowie threw off his folk-rock cloak to reveal the scrawny glam rocker beneath."
