Heathen

4 years, 8 months ago at Dec 17 1:23
Yes, Heathen is probably the best Bowie album since Scary Monsters, but it’s not quite the instant classic that album proved to be. It is, however, a damn good collection of covers and originals. There is no grand character concept, this is probably the most vulnerable and honest Bowie has been on an album, and he is in excellent voice throughout.

Description: For all of his perceived shortcomings in recent years--perhaps Bowie was unduly derided for the drum & bass bandwagoneering of Earthling but rightly castigated for the Turner Prize art-rock balderdash of Outside--Heathen is, in essence, the first "traditional" Bowie album worthy of kudos in years.

Bolshevik Gary Listens To David Bowie (34 music items)

"Continuing the trend of the retro era that went back on ...Hours, this is about as 70's as Bowie is ever going to get in his old age. I listened to a few tracks and thought it sounded like post Diamond Dogs/Hunky Dory (not the R&B stuff he did) and was equally impressed. Pete Townshend comes on board, and the album is produced by Tony Visconti. I don't own this one though so I can't judge it by the few tracks I've heard. "

“Yes, Heathen is probably the best Bowie album since Scary Monsters, but it’s not quite the instant classic that album proved to be. It is, however, a damn good collection of covers and originals. There is no grand character concept, this is probably the most vulnerable and honest Bowie has been on an album, and he is in excellent voice throughout. Pete Townshend’s guest guitar work on “Slow Burn” creates absolute magic. A neo-Bowie classic? Quite possibly. I love the song. And the three covers are amazing, stunning really. “I Would Be Your Slave” is particularly moving to me. I believe that it has something to do with his vocal performance. Same goes for “5.15 the Angels Have Gone.” The way his voice moves up and down and works around the chorus gave me chills the first tim” read more
