iTunes Review

The second installment of Bowie's legendary Berlin trilogy, Heroes is thrillingly iconoclastic even by the singer's own standards. Stormy guitar riffs border on chaos, offset by sleek, angular futurism. Bowie's emotion-wracked vocal and Robert Fripp's soaring guitar make the galvanizing crunch of the title track a transcendent experience, while the second half is dominated by impressionistic, ambient instrumentals with sci-fi synthesizer contributions from Brian Eno. Throughout, Bowie sounds like he's inventing his own musical language note by note, and it's fascinating to hear it unfold.

Customer Reviews

What an album!!!!

Definitely not for the average listener. This album will grow on you trust me. All the best albums do. It's very different from all his other albums but yet familiar. Heroes is a magnificent song. Give it time and you'll love it.

Art

This is avant garde art done at a high level by a group of highly competent musicians/producers. Relentless and brutish at times with the zeitgeist of post-punk meets Bertolt Brecht...In my book Bowie-Eno-Fripp and Visconti are all in top form. A landmark rock album.

One of the best albums ever recorded!

I was never a big Bowie fan but I respected him for the influence he had on Synthpop and New Wave. However, I have always LOVED this album and "Let's Dance". I would definitely rank this album in my personal top 100. I'm a big Kraftwerk fan and it's well known fact that the sounds of Kraftwerk inspired Bowie to make this masterpiece. The track "V-2 Schneider" is a homage to one of Kraftwerk's founders, Florian Schneider.

The cliché about David Bowie goes that he was a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated a remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock...
