David Bowie ‎– "Heroes"

"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... but setting Heroes apart was the crucial addition of King Crimson guitar god Robert Fripp, who sprayed his signature metallic tone all over many of the album's most memorable moments. According to legend, Fripp recorded all of his parts in one six-hour burst of wiry bliss and feedback, often just soloing over tracks he was hearing for the first time. That spontaneity—most of the album's jam-based backing rhythm tracks were also recorded quickly, over just two days—is part of what makes Heroes live and breathe to this day. It's an album that is constantly morphing, never static." - Ryan Dombal, Pichfork Jan. 2016
