Product Description

Product Description

Limited edition 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this classic album. Music On Vinyl.

Amazon.ca

Heathen is, in essence, the first "traditional" Bowie album worthy of kudos in years, as it successfully reunites Bowie with producer Tony Visconti, the man at the controls during Bowie's Berlin period. Heathen finds rock's greatest chameleon once again remolding his past, advancing to new vistas by moving up that metaphorical hill backward. Even more gratifying is the universally high quality of the songwriting craftsmanship on offer, where even a ditty as frivolous as "Everyone Says 'Hi'" ("Don't stay in a sad place where they don't care how you are") hits the mark. For heavyweights who like their Bowie with furrowed-brow, the monastic aura of opener "Sunday" sounds like a post-rock Enigma covering Nico's interpretation of Tim Hardin's "Eulogy to Lenny Bruce," whilst the strident savagery evidenced on an apt cover of the Pixies' "Cactus" disposes with Frank Black's hound-dog yelp and reasserts the melody without undermining the original's obsessional score. Tin Machine ought to have sounded like this. Watch out, too, for the Robert Fripp-impersonating flamethrowing of Pete Townshend on "Slow Burn" and the guitar of the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl lending a slacker swagger to a cover of Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting for You" (again, much better than Tin Machine's live version). Heathen proves that Bowie's still got it. All of it. And in abundance. Awaken all ye nonbelievers. --Kevin Maidment

This will be a brief review. For anyone who has been a fan for a long time, but drifted away from grabbing every album as soon as it hit the shelves, (this often happened at the time of 'Low" or "Let's Dance") "Heathen" is an album you can buy and dive right into, It is quintessential David. Superb band, some really rocking numbers and as always great changes and tonalities. It has that rather dark feel, along the general tone of 'Five Years' or one of his many science-fiction songs. I can pretty well promise that you'll like this, be you a "Low"-lover or a "Let's Dance" fan (although it isn't a dance album. I was delighted the first time I heard this, and it has been on my rotation consistently. Go ahead, have some fun!

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)

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.

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.

While I have been impressed and inspired by Bowie for years, I have to admit that I can't truly consider myself a *huge* fan because I only have several of his albums - most being from the last ten years (_Outside_, _Earthling_, _Reality_, etc.). His work from the 60s, 70s, and 80s I know primarily from a best-of collection, radio, and MTV/VH1. That said, _Heathen_ blew me away when I first heard it.
I can't think of another artist that has been around as long as Bowie that keeps writing and recording new material that sounds fresh, energetic, and urgent. _Heathen_ contains some chilling songs - songs that are so emotional and hit you in such a place inside that you have to listen to them over and over again. When he sings: "There's fear overhead, there's fear overground..." and "But who are we/So small in times such as these," one cannot help but think that these lyrics relate to 9/11. However, Bowie has stated that the material for _Heathen_ was written before 9/11 - which actually makes the lyrics throughout the album even more bonechilling. On "Better Future" he sings: "Please don't tear this world asunder/Please take back this fear we're under/I demand a better future." There are beautiful lyrics like these throughout _Heathen_, as well as very good covers of "Cactus" and Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting For You." My favorite song on the album is "Everyone Says 'Hi'" - just about as perfect as a little pop song can get. With a simple arrangement, the song is a beautiful sentiment with the line that we should all make it a point to remember: "Don't stay in a sad place where they don't care how you are.

Like an unfamiliar friend, Heathen's haunting sedition invites you into wanting to be more than just acquainted. After the first listen, the CD player was set to repeat as Heathen cycled four times, and then you're hopelessly hooked. This is not an easy accomplishment, yet David commands this ability so easily. Though each track stands on its own, this is a package, each song a member of the family and shouldn't be orphaned. This is such a seductively rich package, why would you want to listen to anything else once this disc starts? All the superlatives have been said already and they're all not only appropriate, but there's certainly more that haven't even been invented yet for David. In my 44 years, I have regarded The Beatles as the Paradigm of modern popular music recording artists; a gift. "Musical Artist" is a title thrown around much too loosely these days. David is not one to be ranked. An artist simply is, and David is a gem to the world in this respect as well. Will nothing slow this man's musical momentum down? When I think of Bowie's "Pin-Ups" album and it's tribute to other band's great music, Heathen is a tribute unto himself, yet at the same time reveals a freshness that is unlike anything done prior. This is modern music writing done the way it used to be, while continuously exploring new frontiers. Everything you have ever enjoyed in Bowie's work from day one to present is here. This is the best greatest hits album Bowie never did! This man is so clever and has such ingenuity that while listening, you hear so many different shades of things by other people that might have done but never did, all the while sounding like no one but himself.Read more ›
