Talking Heads, what's their best record?

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

More Songs About Buildings and Food

maybe Fear of Music

Remain in Light for me Cliev.


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


what a fucking band


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

Fear Of Music



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

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.

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

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

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.

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