Probably not considered to be one of his greatest albums, but I like it, and it includes a Pixies cover version (Cactus).

'Heathen' is the first record from David Bowie to be released through his own label ISO. Features a myriad of guest musicians such as Pete Townshend, Dave Grohl, and the Borneo Horns. Produced by Tony Visconti, this is David's twenty third studio album.

One of his best.

A brilliant album ! I am a little biased though - db72 stands for David Bowie 1972 - when I first came across the fellow.

Being a life long fan, do you really feel its up there with his output from the 70s? Low and Hunky Dory are two of my favourite albums of all time.

Nothing stands up to his 70's output of course - he was probably the greatest solo artist of that decade. Heathen was a great return to form though after the miserable post-1980 slide into bland rock, the Tin Machine nonsense, etc,

Heathen is brilliant. Some Bowie fans don't like it which amazes me! I'm biased too :-D

Heathen is a seriously awesome album, I think it not only matches but actually excels much of Bowie's excellent 70's albums.

Aside from Everyone Says Hi, it lacks instant, catchy, radio-friendly songs but has real depth and quality and is a throughly consistent and engaging album. David Baddiel said it took him about 5 years to realise that Everyone Says Hi was about bereavement! entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol…ece

It was GQ mag's album of the year, in Uncut's top 10 album of the year list, in Q mag's best of year list, widely critically acclaimed, got Bowie shortlisted for the Mercury Music prize and spent 4 months in the UK charts.


Shame the follow up album, Reality, was so patchy and ......Dull!
