iTunes Editors’ Notes

By 1977, David Bowie has passed through his Ziggy Stardust and Thin White Duke personae in search of ever-more-exotic inspiration. Late that year, Heroes found him in an experimental musical zone, where he put aside hit singles in favor of something more challenging. Stationed in Berlin, Bowie and coproducer Brian Eno filled the tracks with an ominous Cold War mood, laden with bleak synthesizer atmospherics. These clouds of sound are slashed by Robert Fripp's maniacal guitar, which adds bursts of wild color to "Beauty and the Beast," "Blackout," and other songs. Amid the shadowy sonic architecture, Bowie emerges to deliver passionate vocals, particularly on the anthem-like title track. Heroes is a world unto itself, a forbidding vision punctuated with desperate cries from the heart. Bowie has gone on to record many other fascinating works, but few are as startling and compelling as this one.

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.

not great

Heros, the secret life of arabia and beauty and the beast are really the only good songs on here and there amazing but i couldn't listen to the whole album
