I've never bothered buying it. I don't like most of the covers.

Yeah, it's the only studio Bowie prior to Let's Dance that I don't actually own. I've heard it of course and my simple problem with it is that I just don't think it's that good. I don't think the songs really work for him and I'd much rather hear his own material from the period.

I bought it because it was Bowie. Sadly, not good at all

Nope!
The only way to go, is the RCA for most of the titles!

dynamic range of the different releases of “Heroes” on CD!
EMI dynamic! Yeah right!

and before you going gaga, I'm not listening by looking at images, but
these tells a lot, and you only need to listen to some of the early RCA to be convinced!
Low/“Heroes” on RCA kills every version so far!
