“Heroes” 1977

The second in the trilogy and another Visconti/Bowie production, Heroes was recorded in its entirety in Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin and continued with the themes of Low. The title song – the story of two young lovers meeting covertly at the Berlin Wall – is one of his most well-known songs. Heroes – similarly to Low – features songs on side one with mostly instrumentals on the second side. However, those compositions, while still being stark and stripped-down in places, also manage to convey a lighter, more optimistic vibe than the mostly-sombre Low. Generally regarded as one of his best by critics, it was also a commercial success in the UK, though less well-received in the US.
