Talking Heads, what's their best record?


#1

I drift between Speaking in Tongues and Little Creatures, although sometimes 77.


#2

More Songs About Buildings and Food


#3

yeah, that’s also really good.


#4

maybe Fear of Music


#5

there’s not really a bad record is there


#6

Remain in Light for me Cliev.


#7

Fear Of Music by a slight margin over Remain In Light for me.
Both are absolute classics.
What a band though.


#8

what a fucking band


#9

Another vote for Little Creatures, with Walk It Down being their best song.


#10

Fear Of Music


#11

Remain in Light. by like, so many >>>>.

it’s not even that the other albums aren’t really good, they just might as well be by another band.


#12

this


#13

Says a lot about a band that there is nowhere near general consensus here


#14

I like to think it’s Remain in Light, but sometimes the second half is a bit too gloomy. Speaking in Tongues is a joy from start to finish but doesn’t feel, I don’t know, quite as good

I’m not sure I could ever decide between the two. One of those ones.

But everything they’ve done is great. I find myself listening to True Stories a lot, particularly Love For Sale.


#15

Got into them through Fear of Music. It’s still my favourite.


#16

Split the difference by saying Stop Making Sense Soundtrack??

Original version, or the 1999 version that moreorless follows the setlist from the film?


#19

I’ve kind of grown up with these records (well from the age of 16/17 to … however old I am now) and I love them all for different reasons.

True Stories is probably the weakest but it doesn’t really feel like a proper TH album anyway. Speaking in Tongues has some great songs but I prefer the amped up versions from SMS.


#20

Speaking in Tongues is my favourite. Has a great funk to it.
