"Stop making sense!" Well, today I started listening to the Talking Heads. I never gave them a second notice, because until recently I had an aversion to 80s music, and "new wave" and pop in particular. But the Police on the radio and re-listening to my King Crimson Discipline-era CDs got me checking out David Byrne and crew. I picked up three of their albums used: Fear of Music, Remain in Light, and Speaking in Tongues. I love the first track off Fear of Music. Not only is it a cool tune with some tight arrangements, it's got Robert Fripp making a guest appearance. The rest of the album is pretty strong, too. I'm couldn't get into the last couple of tracks, but I've only listened to it once. Remain in Light starts off strong and is on and off, though more "on" than "off." The rhythms and percussion are more involved than I expected. I'm listening to Speaking in Tongues now. It's a bit "quirkier" than the other two, but more spacious and more "pop." I'm digging the whole chaotic sound they have, as if they just smushed a bunch of stuff together. One also has to like David Byrne, which I would imagine is one of those "love it or hate it" deals. Listening to Adrian Belew prepped me for this stuff, so I'm well conditioned for Byrne. I plan on getting their first two albums also at some point. Any thoughts, comments, questions, exclamations, declamations, and other verbalizations?
