Heroes is the second album in David Bowie’s Berlin period, where he traveled to Berlin, Germany to detox after battling a cocaine addiction. The other albums in his Berlin period are Low in 1977 and Lodger in 1979. This new detoxed Bowie is becoming accepted, and setting out the blueprint for electronic music for the next decade. Heroes has it all. It would be the album that every young budding musician would refer to for guidance and inspiration for the next decade, and beyond.
In 1977, David Bowie was in the middle of yet another transformation. With the October release of Heroes, he took further steps into a more electronic-flavored sound that first reared its head on the Low album issued earlier in the year. Often referred to as his "Berlin Trilogy" due to the influence of the city where much of the recordings were made, the trio would be complete with Lodger from the 1978. All three albums are distinctly different, yet have a unifying sonic theme.
Several songs from the album were played live on Bowie's Low and Heroes World Tour of 1978, and released on the live album Stage in the same year Philip Glass adapted a classical suite, "Heroes" Symphony, from this album as a companion to his earlier Low Symphony The title track has been covered by numerous artists, for example as an encore by.
Much of the harder-edged sound of Heroes is due to Robert Fripp's guitar, which provides a muscular foundation for the electronics, especially on the relatively conventional rock songs. Similarly, the instrumentals on Heroes are more detailed, this time showing a more explicit debt to German synth pop and European experimental rock. Essentially, the difference between Low and Heroes lies in the details, but the record is equally challenging and groundbreaking.
It’s been said the beginning of Kosmische Musik-the hypnotic, minimalist style of music crudely dubbed Krautrock by the British press in the late ’60s-lies in the wake of World War II. The trance-like atmosphere and sterilized rhythms were the result of a sound designed to mirror the shell shock that fell over Germany after the demise of the Third Reich as well as the Schlager pop music deemed appropriate for public consumption by the government
Listen free to David Bowie – Low (Speed of Life, Breaking Glass and more). Low is the eleventh studio album by British musician David Bowie, co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti. Widely regarded as one of Bowie's most influential releases, Low was the first of the "Berlin Trilogy", a series of collaborations with Brian Eno (though the album was mainly recorded in France and only mixed in West Berlin).
