About this album

”Heroes”” is an album by David Bowie, released in 1977.

The second installment of his “Berlin Trilogy” with Brian Eno (the other releases being “Low” and “Lodger”) “Heroes” developed the sound of “Low” in a more positive direction. Of the three albums, it was the most befitting of the appellation “Berlin”, being the only one wholly recorded there.

The title track remains one of Bowie’s best known, a classic story of two lovers who meet at the Berlin Wall. The album is considered one of his best by critics, notably for the contributions of guitarist Robert Fripp who flew in from the U.S. to record his parts in one day. John Lennon was quoted as saying that when making his album “Double Fantasy” in 1980, his ambition was to “do something as good as “Heroes”. It was named NME Album of the Year.

    I can't really articulate why I find this album really satisfying, but I do. It's his best album and both the title song and "The Secret Life of Arabia" are his best tunes.

    One of my favorite Bowies, but be warned: Wear goggles because this music is so good that you WILL be splashing cold coffee in your eye stockings!

    Wouldn't have expected this in '77, i guess. When side two kicked in, I was like whoa!

    LOVE the organisation of the tracks. The last 15 minutes consists of mysterious instrumental tracks, very Wendy Carlos-ish, and then The secret life... as the grand finale!! Bowie, you bloody genius

    How is it that, as a music obsessive of 35 years and a man who has seen David Bowie live twice, is just now, today hearing the entirety of this brilliant album form start to finish? A moving, exploratory masterpiece, two decades ahead of it's time. WOW.

    a nice album. as one friend of mine once said, the 2nd hand on the cover belongs to Brian Eno and Bowie worships it.

    "Sense of Doubt" and "Neukoln" are unbelievable tracks. I've always found David Bowie's ability to write something obscenely catchy and then turn around and create something so amazingly atmospheric to be the mark of a true artist.

    Title track easily one of the most memorable tunes by Bowie. Robert Fripp's guitar and Brian Eno's synths create an incredible atmosphere and Bowie's (near operatic) emotional vocals take this song close to perfection. Sends shivers down my spine. One of my favorite songs ever!
