DAVID BOWIE Released His Outstanding Berlin Album ‘HEROES’ 42 Years Ago Today…

Classics from the past…

14 October 2019

46 years ago today, on 14 October 1973 the late great genius DAVID BOWIE released his highly challenging and superb HEROES album. It was his 12th longplayer. The second part of his Berlin Trilogy (although ‘Heroes‘ was actually the only LP wholly recorded in Berlin) co-produced with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti and contributions by guitar phenomenon Robert Fripp. The classic lead single ‘Heroes‘ unquestionably helped the commercial triumph of the album peaking at #3 on the UK Albums Chart.

PITCHFORK wrote: ” “Heroes” is the second installment of David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy. The trilogy, and “Heroes” in particular, show all the signs of an artist growing up, shaking off the trappings of capitalist ego and success, and searching for a soul instead. It often sounds as if Bowie is conducting chaos, smashing objects together to discover scarily beautiful new shapes.” Full review here. Score: 10/10
