We gave it a C+

If you’re going to tackle one of David Bowie’s most inventive songs, you have to do something more than merely produce a tepid carbon copy of it, as the Wallflowers have done with this cut (from the Godzilla soundtrack). Heroes is a dull, letter-perfect simulation, from Michael Ward’s Fripp-like droning guitar to Jakob Dylan’s soaring, melodramatic vocal. They would’ve been better off going out on a limb — a country-rock makeover, perhaps? C+
