5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Burn(s) by Bowie Aug. 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
The great thing import singles from non-pop artist is that instead of giving you remixes they opt for previously unreleased tracks. David Bowie s Slow Burn , the song which features a screechy guitar by Pete Townshed, is the first single from Bowie s Heathen . With rock guitar combined with Bowie s soulful vocal and agonizing lyrics, this song is a classic. Four non-album tracks follow and all of them are mournful and melancholy. The object of ridicule, Woody Jackson , is a very sympathetic character and Bowie s whispering vocal makes it a very worthy album track. It does appear on the Japanese edition of Heathen . Shadow Man and When the Boys Come Marching Home are also standout works. The fifth track is worth the price of the import alone. You ve got A Habit Of Leaving is punk rock with old R&B crooning and alternative rock sensibility. It s a pseudo twisted love song with a rousing jam session after the all too short lyrical section of the song are over. Unfortunately, Bowie is not one the musicians on this track but his upbeat vocal through this bitter song leave their impression. For those wanting yet another companion disc to Heathen (that is, assuming you own the American special edition of this disc or the Japanese import), this should tide you over til the next single (hopefully, Cactus ).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Heathen Single Dec 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
The five stars are clearly for single status. This is in no way an album, and when you look at buying a single, you understand that it isn't an album.
That being said, I think this is a great single. Five tracks, all different, only one of them (Slow Burn)on Heathen itself. Pretty much what we're getting here is stuff that could have mad the "Toy" album, and well, I hope that one day that album comes out, but until then, it's single buying times, and this single is worth your money.
I personally think Shadow Man is a great song, perhaps my favorite of the single. Go get it.

2.0 out of 5 stars one for the collectors Sept. 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
The inclusion of 4 non-LP tracks makes this single appealing to fans and collectors, however those extra tracks aren't that good. Three of the songs are outtakes from the Heathen album and if you think the album is just okay and wonder what all the praise is about, then these 3 tracks won't do much for you. "You've got A Habit of Leaving" is a remake of a song he originally recorded in the 60s and this new version, with its bells and whistles, doesn't outdo the original.
