Realistically, how much of this was written by Bowie and how much by Eno?
Not knocking Bowie's songwriting abilities, but this is just lightyears more advanced than anything else he ever made and I suspect Eno wrote 80-90% of it.

I don't think that's true, even if it is his best record.
I imagine all of side 1's songs were written by Bowie, but produced by Eno. Some sounds here and there were probably Eno's idea, and I imagine any synthesizer you hear is entirely Eno.
Side 2 was likely all written by Eno, but Bowie likely gave him a large sample of random vocals to work with to start. Then Bowie came in after he was done with the tracks and contributed more vocals.
So I'd say it was a 50-50 collaborative effort. Nothing wrong with that. Eno's best works have always been in conjunction with other artists, and the same can be said for Bowie.

You imagine a lot because you are too stupid to know the album was produced by Tony Visconti. Fuckface.
While Eno's ocntributions were no doubt valuable, in the end he was a glorified session player for Bowie.
Eno doesn't even have producer credits on that album. About the only thing that Eno can truly credited as writing is Warszawa.
I had a similiar doubt today
Nevertheless he wrote all of the
>Breaking Glass with Dennis Davis, George Murray
>Warszawa with Eno
But I don't doubt tat the artists who played instrumentals also contributed in the process of ideas
Does anyone have a flowchart of Bowie?
Eno's contribution is way overrated. One only needs to consider what Eno did without Bowie and what Bowie did without Eno. Station To Station and Scary Monsters are either side of this collaboration and they are two of the best albums of all time.
