As mentioned above you really cant go wrong with fear of music or remain in light. Both of which are groundbreaking albums which I think still sound fresh today. I dont think Talking Heads really put a foot wrong for the first five albums. All are belters. Then from Little Creatures it’s a bit touch and go but still great in places.
Like the smiths I hope they never have a reunion. I saw David Bryne sing ‘This must be the place’ with St Vincent and it was great but it wasn’t even the highlight of a fantastic show. Id hate to see him milk a tour.
Anyway, favourite talking heads album - fear of music. Favourite song off that album - either Heaven or Animals.
Also check out the Tom Tom Club and Bryne’s solo stuff. I really loved that album he did with St Vincent amongst other stuff. He also appeared on one of the best tracks off the new De La Soul album…
