Heathen was recorded on either side of the 9/11 tragedy, and much of the project examines Bowie's post-disaster thoughts on mankind's place in the world. Reflective tracks like the pained "Slow Burn" and the swirling rocker "Afraid" match thoughtful lyrics to full, subtly detailed production. An unexpected trio of covers—the Pixies' stomping "Cactus," Neil Young's anguished "I've Been Waiting for You," and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's oddball "I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spaceship"—help make this one of Bowie's most eclectic albums.
Bowie's Best In Years
Bowie's best in years. Most guitar driven album since Scary Monsters. Speaking of which, Pete Townsend returns to guest on Slow Burn, an album highlight. Epic cover of Neil Young's I've Been Waiting For You. Cactus is good fun but is one of the least essential tracks here. Gemini Spaceship seems tailor made. Sunday is the most haunting & atmospheric track, bringing Scott Walker to mind. The eerie quirkiness of Slip Away is vintage Bowie & Everyone Says Hi, is as catchy as it gets. As for the rest---not bad. After producing most of Bowie's classic 70's work, producer Tony Visconti returns to twiddle the knobs. Where Bowie's post Let's Dance output seemed cluttered, cold or at worst, uninspired, Visconti brings a warmth & space & atmosphere long missing. In terms of late career Bowie---this is the one to get.
people come on...
Bowie keeps getting better and better the more you listen to him. The tone, range, and the voice control is amazing, like on "everyone says 'Hi'" it's simple, but not to simple, and yet so easy to listen to. more people should listen to him, or at least write a review.
Over and over
1 mans opinion, this is an album that gains depth both sonically and lyrically with each listen. I have been returning to this album time and again for the past two years and am always rewarded.
