Heathen can easily hold its own with the best of Bowies seventies output, in fact it might even be his greatest achievement. All 12 songs are at the very least 'good'...standout cuts include 'Slip Away', 'Slow Burn', '5:15 Angels Have Gone". Heathen has a wonderful resonance and a magificent sense of world weariness, a mood that runs from start to finish. Bowie's lyrics are wistful, Bowie's singing is superb, the arrangements are exquisite, Visconti's production is absolutely perfect and there are some fine musical contributions from Pete Townshend and Dave Grohl. Even the two covers on the album 'Cactus' by the Pixies and 'I've Been Waiting For You' by Neil Young are wonderful. Meanwhile the bonus disc which comes with the deluxe edition includes a simply devasting remake of 'Conversation Piece' an old old Bowie song.
I cannot recommend Heathen highly enough...Bowie is a genius, you must purchase this album (buy ...hours, Earthling, 1.Outside while you're at it too - they're great as well)

It's kind of common to think that such big artist from the past years tend to slow down through the years... or at least their new productions don't impact as the previous (and nowadays classic) ones... but this album is almost a masterpiece. It shows how Bowie can compose really great music. He can change styles, makeup, band memebers... but he's always making great music. This is one of my favorites albums overall, and I'm not a Bowie fan. Highly recommended.

I have been listening to David Bowie for 40 years. Heathen is the best Bowie album ever recorded and in my opinion one of the best albums of the past decade in music. It is a musical masterpiece. All the songs are extremely well written, the production is absolutely incredible and Bowies voice is absolutely amazing. Here is a performer who does not just sing a song but really feels the emotions of each song. I have listened to this album over and over again and never grow tired of it. A true musical artist and song genius. Best song on album, Slow Burn, haunting, prophetic and real. Only Bowie could deliver a song and album like this.

Oh man. This record is absolutely gorgeous. Loving the tough 180g format of this very incredible album. If you are into David Bowie when he is really taking his voice to the limit, than this is the album for you. When he hits the highs and deep lows, I feel shivers go down my spine. Truly a must have for any Bowie fan!

I have to say this album expelled my initial preconceptions. I bought this as a blind buy for some friends and then fell into a panic about the quality of the album. I have since listened to the album a good five times and I am floored everytime. Everything works.

I notice a lot of people are calling Heathen Bowie's first "great" album since 1980. I disagree. I like the Heathen album, but there's something about it that keeps it from being in the same league as Reality or Earthling, and nothing on this album IMO is as great as either Heart's Filthy Lesson off Outside and Thursday's Child off ...hours.
On the pro sides... I thought it was great to see Bowie working with Visconti again. There's some GREAT songs on this album too. Slip Away and Slow Burn being the highlights in my opinion.
This is certainly a good album, but I don't understand why people make it out like it's the only decent album Bowie's done in the past 20 years, when I wouldn't even say it was his best in the past decade, as I think everything the man's done since 1993 has been worthy. Now check out Reality, Bowie's most flawless album in 20 years.

If you know anything about music, you know who David Bowie is. He has a pretty flawless streak between the albums Space Oddity to Scary Monsters. That is a great twelve years or so, a good run that stands up against The Beatles or Zeppelin. But at some point Bowie lost the plot. Was it drug addiction? Was is all the bad films he was in? Did he go Hollywood and sell his soul? When I saw him play in a stadium in 1984 during the Serious Moonlight tour I felt cheated. I never bought another Bowie album in my life. While millions of other people probably just discovered him then. Was this the same guy who masterminded the album Low? During the 1980s Bowie collaborated with Toni Basil, Peter Frampton and Mick Jagger. Then there was the mistake on Tin Machine. I see the dollar bins at used record stores lined with them. For a few years now we were all expecting a great Bowie comeback album. Even with Brian Eno, the final efforts were interesting and obscure. Hanging out with Placebo yielded better results. I don't take Bowie serious as a drum and bass man. The key ingredient for Heathen was getting back together with Tony Visconti, who helped out on some of the great Bowie albums of the past especially The Man Who Sold The World.
Apparently this record was crafted in upstate New York. The song "Sunday" announces a "beginning to an end." It's a serious dirge reminiscent of late 1970s Bowie. The second song "Cactus" is a Pixies cover where Bowie plays drums. It is straight forward rock which mixes acoustic and big drum sound and a cool tune. "Slip Away" is more like the stuff Bowie has done on previous albums. It has an interesting lyric about being in New York City where Bowie has spent more time recently.
