 Talking Heads
Nonetheless, the Talking Heads were in my view not just the biggest but most consistently listenable of the American New Wave acts, recording a half-dozen commercially successful albums over a decade, breaking ground with Byrne's electronic funk and World Music affectations, and always retaining enough musical integrity to make them a critics' favorite.
And like Blondie and the Police, the Talking Heads had an imaginative and easily recognizable lead vocalist who could enliven even the most leaden backing tracks.
The Heads now reconvened for a self-produced studio album, and indeed they're completely in command of their patented, tension-building funk/New Wave dance recipe ("Girlfriend Is Better," livened with a catchy "stop making sense" refrain).

 Talking Heads
Talking Heads were one of the first and best purveyors of "dance music you can't dance to," churning out songs that had (on paper) many of the same raw materials as "regular" pop music, but that put these elements together in such a wholely bizarre way as to distinguish themselves from everybody else.
In the end, then, this is so necessary, not only for Heads fans, but also for any pop music fan in general, that the fact that we had to wait so long for a CD issue of this seems in retrospect like an unpardonable crime by the music industry.
This and '77 may not be the best Talking Heads albums, but they amply demonstrate that, when left to their own devices, this group could still pull out some friggin' interesting music.

Released in 1980, the Talking Heads' fourth album, Remain in Light, is the Rubber Soul of their career.
Because this is the Talking Heads, who with a tiny cadre of others literally invented new wave in the late '70s and early '80s, such criticism is relative.
Consistent with the rest of the Talking Heads' catalogue, Remain in Light is a coherent piece that is best listened to all at one time.

 Talking Heads Discography
From this hotbed of musical dissent came Talking Heads, arguably the greatest of the post-Pistols "alternative" acts from America.
David Byrne's nervous stage presence implied we were all a breakdown away from madness; the rest of the band quietly went about their business exuding the sort of youthful confidence that truly scares the establishment.
As the '80s dawned, the Heads temporarily split, with David Byrne, Jerry Harrison, and the husband-and-wife team of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth (as Tom Tom Club) planting the seeds of successful solo careers.

The Talking Heads were never afraid of experimentation and with the help of Eno they were able to create something entirely different and creatively free.

 The History of Rock Music. Talking Heads: biography, discography, reviews, links
Venuti alla ribalta durante gli anni della new wave, i Talking Heads furono uno dei complessi che maggiormente rinnovo` la scena della musica rock a cavallo fra gli anni '70 e gli anni '80.
Lontanissimi dal milieu sotto-proletario che aveva prodotto tanta musica rock, i Talking Heads suonavano canzoni di intrattenimento arrangiate in modo pudico e attillato che non avevano nulla a che vedere con il sesso, l'alcohol, la droga e la violenza (i temi classici del rock).
Eno e` ormai a tutti gli effetti il quinto membro dei Talking Heads, ma, nonostante sia coautore di tutti i brani, la sua personalita` rimane in secondo piano rispetto a quella di Byrne.
