"Heroes" is an album by David Bowie, released in 1977. The second installment of Bowie's 'Berlin Trilogy' with Brian Eno (the other releases being Low and Lodger) "Heroes" is similar in sound to Low but more robust and visceral.
Of the three albums, it was the most befitting of the appellation "Berlin", being the only one wholly recorded and mixed there. The mood of the record reflected the zeitgeist of the Cold War, symbolised by the divided city.
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 Double Fantasy in 1980, his ambition was to "do something as good as Heroes."
