Fear of Music (1979)

Fear of Music (1979)

This album is absolutely brilliant. Fantastic. Magical. AMAZING.

It’s 1979, and nothing sounds like this. It’s 2011, and still nothing sounds like this. I don’t know much about the Talking Heads, but this might be the most amazing album ever?

I really have no idea what the lyrics are talking about, but it’s the music itself that I love. David Byrne’s vocals compliment the jumpy, upbeat, and psychotic background. Every song is catchy in its unique way.

Okay, so I just started listening to this, so honestly I haven’t got much to say except…get this album! It has infected me, in a good way.
