Editors’ Notes Heathen was recorded on either side of the 9/11 tragedy, and much of the project examines Bowie's post-disaster thoughts on mankind's place in the world. Reflective tracks like the pained "Slow Burn" and the swirling rocker "Afraid" match thoughtful lyrics to full, subtly detailed production. An unexpected trio of covers—the Pixies' stomping "Cactus," Neil Young's anguished "I've Been Waiting for You," and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's oddball "I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spaceship"—help make this one of Bowie's most eclectic albums.
