Thoughts on Talking Heads
I have to be honest when I say that I didn’t expect to like Talking Heads, mostly because when I first heard more than just “Burning Down the House” when I was in high school, I really didn’t care for it. But that was also a time before I listened to Radiohead and other good music, so it’s also not much of a surprise that I really loved Talking Heads when I gave them a solid try.
I liked them so much, in fact, that I gave Talking Heads: 77 a listen and was also really pleased with that. Both albums were great. There’s just something about the whole band’s sound that really meshes and I really like David Byrne’s voice. God knows what sort of reactions I’ll get for saying this, but there are moments when Talking Heads come off as a sort of cheerful Joy Division. It seems like an oxymoron and I think the comparison is solely in my head, but it’s there anyway.
The point is, I really liked Talking Heads and I will definitely be checking out the rest of their discography in the future.
