Fear of Music



        Fear of Music is the last Talking Heads to be limited to the four members of the group, before all the world rhythms were added to the mix. It is also their best album.

       This is the album that gave us Life During Wartime, Cities, and Heaven. It opens with a song based on a Hugo Ball dadist phonetic poem, and ends on the super trippy Drugs. In between are 9 songs that are must hear Talking Heads. This is also the last Talking Heads album that I can listen to the whole way through all the time (if you don't count the live albums). It's just sad that this album often gets overlooked because it didn't have the singles acompanied by iconic videos that previous and later Talking Heads albums alike are known for.
