“Heroes is the 12th studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on RCA Records on 14 October 1977. The second instalment of his Berlin Trilogy recorded with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti, "Heroes" continued the ambient experiments of Bowie's previous album Low (released earlier that year) and featured the contributions of King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp. Of the three albums, it was the only one wholly recorded in Berlin.

It was well received by critics, and was named NME Album of the Year. The title track remains one of Bowie's best known and acclaimed songs. The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.” – Wiki

“"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. Of course, Bowie's ego was a magnificent thing at its height, but he also understood its insatiability—how it would kill him if he did not kill it. – Pitchfork

“"Heroes" is, arguably, David Bowie's greatest song ever. Over six minutes long, you still wish it would go on for longer. Lyrically and musically it's extremely anthemic, and its lyrics are especially noticeable for their German/WWII/Berlin references: "I, I Remember/Standing By the Wall/The Guns Shot Above Our Heads". It's such a spirited and moving track, complete with Bowie's best vocal.”– Sputnik Music
