180 Gram Vinyl! Guest Guitarists Pete Townshend & Dave Grohl!

Intricately layered, smooth, alluring, and infinitely welcoming – those are words used to describe David Bowie's 2002 album Heathen, which includes tracks by Neil Young, the Pixies' Black Francis & the legendary Stardust Cowboy.

Features guest spots for Pete Townshend & Dave Grohl on guitar!

Co-produced by Tony Visconti, who also produced many of Bowie's best albums (Space Oddity, Heroes, The Man Who Sold The World, and many others), Heathen sounds like coming home. It combines the best of Bowie without re-hashing what made him big in the first place, and effortlessly weaves modern production & electronics into his sound.

"...[T]his is an alluring, welcoming, friendly album -- there are some moody moments, but Bowie takes Neil Young's eerie "I've Been Waiting for You" and Pixies' elusively brutal, creepy "Cactus" and turns them sweet, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, either. In the end, that's the key to Heathen -- the undercurrent of happiness, not in the lyrics, but in the making of music, a realization by Bowie and Visconti alike that they are perfect collaborators." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine,

"His great concept roles — Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke — were all lost souls, trapped in space or circumstance. Bowie works here without masks, deepening the sultry gravity of his voice with open yearning in "Slip Away" ("Life on Mars?" reset in the nutty sweetness of the 1980s cult-TV hit The Uncle Floyd Show) and the icy waiting song "5:15 All the Angels Have Gone." A loose theme runs through these songs, covers included: the search for guiding light in godless night. But the real story is Heathen's perfect casting: Bowie playing Bowie, with class." - David Fricke, Rolling Stone
