5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with every listen, 14 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Heathen (Audio CD)
Like so many of Bowie's albums, this one takes a few listens to grow to love it. The songs are complex and there are so many layers to the music that the first listen almost disappoints, but with the second listen it all begins to make sense and by the third spin, it will remain firmly rooted in your cd player.
My personal favourite track is the first, the awesome "Sunday" with the beautiful lyric "And nothing has changed...everything has changed". "Slip Away" "I would be your slave" and the title track "Heathen" also demand complete attention; listen with your eyes closed and let the music wash over you. The covers fit into the album perfectly and "I took a trip on a Gemini Spaceship" is an almost welcome respite from the darkness of the rest of the album.
At fifty-five, David Bowie is writing beautiful, haunting music, perfectly expressing the angst of the times we live in and his own acknowledgement of the briefness of life. His voice is as strong and moving as ever and he still has the ability to surprise. Give this album more than one chance and you will be amazed.
