There are too many Talking Heads albums on this list. Just like all the others, about a third of these tracks are okay, the other two-thirds are pointless, repetitive, boring, or annoying. I'm being generous with two stars.

Super fun and catchy. Realizing more and more why some rando on RYM described LCD Soundsystem as a carbon copy of Talking Heads (in a good way), even though he was totally wrong.

This is the Talking Heads before Afrobeat really took over as an influence. I really enjoy the second half of this album a lot and I think it is paced very well. The playing is incredibly tight (the drums on I’m Not In Love are *chef kiss*) and some wild guitar effects to make it extra funky. I tend to prefer more of their later output, but this one is still very nice and has a lot of songs that I show people if they ask about good Talking Heads starter songs. Favorite track: I’m Not In Love Least favorite track: The Good Thing

The beginning of their collaboration with Eno and where they really start to take off. Eno came in and bring just the right amount of punch and flourish to the mix. This is a real nice midpoint in their sound as they continued to evolve. Love how the album starts by just ripping right into it. So much forward momentum on this album.

Day 37 of Albums You Must Hear.. More Songs About Buildings and Food is the second album from New Wave band Talking Heads. I reviewed their debut album ‘77 about a month ago and enjoyed it. Talking Heads sophomore offering finds the band with a new producer, Brian Eno, who would help the band add a bit more danceability to their already polished sound, resulting in Talking Heads coming more into their own style that would become more and more “uniquely them” for the next few years. On MSABAF, singer David Byrne would broaden his singing a bit more, bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz would bring even more of a pulse to the rhythm section and Jerry Harrison would continue to create funky synthesizer and guitar effects. The cover of Al Green’s Take Me to the River was a smash hit for the band and is an absolute gem! I’m Not in Love is another great track that can easily get stuck in your head all day. I had fun with Talking Heads More Songs About Buildings and Food and their unique approach to punk rock. Please share your thoughts, memories and opinions!!

Talking Heads you say? Well they're no Stuart Maconie in the talking heads stakes. When was the last time you saw David Byrne on one of those I Heart The 1980s, I Heart the 1990s, I Heart Whatever Happened A Week Last Tuesday TV shows? And when was the last time Stuart Maconie wasn't featured in one of those I Heart The 1980s, I Heart the 1990s, I Heart Whatever Happened A Week Last Tuesday TV shows? Byrne just isn't putting the work in to be considered a real top level talking head. He's just not in the conversation when Channel 4 are looking for someone to reminisce about the first series of Big Brother. This album is great though, I'm sure Maconie has pretended he remembers its release vividly on some nostalgia-fest TV show or other.

I really enjoyed this album, more than I thought I would. After all the "challenging" prog and art rock that this list has been suggesting, I was braced for more despite my general appreciation for talking heads. This album was listenable end-to-end and I found myself picking my head up from my work to just sit and enjoy it. Really good stuff.

As TH no. 1 fan ;) I think that this album should be replaced by Speaking With Tongues, which to my best knowledge isn't among the 1000 (and one). Still, it's great to observe the transformation of the band from '77 to Fear Of Music. If you ever wondered how the mix of '77 and FOM would look like, that's the answer. When you listen to all the band's albums, it'll become very clear that an album like "More Songs..." had to be recorded. For me it always seemed like a natural step and maybe that's why I wasn't focusing on it. But songs like: "Thank You for Sending Me an Angel", "Found a Job'', "I'm Not in Love", "Stay Hungry", "The Big Country" and "Take Ne to the River" are absolutely TOP. I also have to say that "The Good Thing" sounds too calm and predictable for a TH song and "Artist Only" sounds too much like a Talking Heads song.

The first of a trio of masterpieces (and my second-favorite of the bunch). There is not an ounce of fat on this record and not a single disposable track. I would also recommend this as the perfect introduction album for Talking Heads. The Big Country is my favorite track.

This and the other two albums in the "Eno Trilogy" were a staple of my teenage listening. Talking Heads were my band and spoke to this oddball from the suburbs, I even used "Artists Only" as a tag for a little while. This album is testament to the fact that they were four talented artists, not just David Byrne's dog and pony show

I absolutely adore Talking Heads and David Byrne in general. They are so creative and different and such an excellent sound in everything they do. I'm currently reading David Byrne's book How Music Works which is great and he outlook on what music is and 'how it works' is great. This album really shows so many different aspects of what makes great music great. Also I think Tina Weymouth is the best bassist I know of, Talking Heads basslines are so so good and a big fat middle finger up to people who think bass is just a necessary but boring thing, the bass in Talking Heads is so integral to their sound.

Listening to this album has brought me to an entire day of Talking Heads and it's a discovery I really enjoyed. Now I've likely listened to most albums once or twice in my life before, but it has made for a great day with some incredible music. First of all, this album itself, it's so incredibly infectious and fun. The basslines are jumpy, the lyrics are different, the music is clever. And, what's more, it's a strong album. There's no song to skip, not even the Al Green cover.

‘Jerky funk rhythms’ is a good description. I’ve never heard of this album, nor heard any of the songs. Outstanding, very pleasantly surprised. You know it’s good when you want to play it the 3rd time without a break. Their 2nd LP and the first of 3 produced by Brian Eno. This is interesting, lots going on. Love the band, not sure about the voice at this early stage but the rhythm of the voice and the lyrics bring it together and the rhythm is excellent, would be great live. Can’t help but move to this. Love the sound, the production, the bass in particular sounds amazing. Sounds indie at times, jangly guitars, but always with a funky drums & bass. Music to lose yourself in at the gig or on the dance floor.

I think this album is a big step up from Talking Heads' first album, even though a lot of the songs at first have a similar feel to the first album. There's a lot more of this album I know though, whether it's from "Stop Making Sense" or greatest hits. My 2 favorite songs: 1) "Thank You For Sending Me An Angel" - every time I hear this song, I envision Jackie Gleason dancing. It just has that musical freneticism to it. 2) "Take Me To The River" - It's so weird to hear the original Al Green version now. This one is so definitive to me. Although not my favorite of their albums (either Fear of Music or Remain In Light), there were so many of the songs I sang along to in the car while listening to it.

Noch deuten sich die ganz großen Würfe nur an, werden skizziert, daher wirkt vieles noch prototypisch, anderes wiederum großartig zu Ende gedacht (z.B. „Stay Hungry“). Was jedoch ganz klar ist: Zeitlosigkeit - mehr als 40 (!!!) Jahre später könnte dieses Album durchaus so aufgenommen werden. Visionary 3.5

Thank You for Sending Me an Angel, The Good Thing, Warning Sign, I'm Not in Love, The Big Country - норм темы. Found a Job и Artists Only - какофония душная. Остальное вроде приятно-слушабельно. Напрягает подход к вокальным партиям, из-за которого порой кажется, что вокалёр только уловил ритм и просто хочет что-нибудь спиздануть в микрофон. Наверное, это дохуя экспериментально и концептуально, но ведь без всей этой шляпы группа тупо внятнее и приятнее звучит. Да и мозгоебучие звуковые диссонансы особо приятностей не доставляют. Но если отбросить это всё - вполне неплохое музло, которое, сложись иначе обстоятельства, вполне мог бы слушать. Не сейчас и не в этой жизни, вероятно, но мог бы.

Ну че тут говорить, одна из моих любимых групп эвер. Причем стала таковой на ракетной тяге всего двух альбомов. Остальные я послушивал постольку-поскольку, но слишком сильно не проникался. Песни про здания и еду к ним тоже можно отнести, но здесь, на мой взгляд, группа показывает максимальную вариативность и экспериментальность, что было не слишком-то присуще дебютнику, на мой взгляд. Позже на альбомах Remain in Light и Speaking in Tongues эта формула будет совмещена с поп-ориентированностью и позволит нам получить две великих пластинки. Ну а это скорее разогрев, впрочем 8 вполне легитимно поставлю

Second album by a band I never consciously listened to. This is also an era in musical history I never really paid much attention to.

“More Songs About Buildings and Food” by Talking Heads (1978) The title is a big clue. Of course there’s no mention of either buildings or food throughout this entire album (mostly boy/girl evocations) until you get to the final track, which is all about the contrast between the city (where they build buildings) and the countryside (where they produce food). This is a great example of the use of obscurity to draw the listener in, and this last, climactic track is the closest you’re ever likely to get to New Wave Country/Western. This ultimate theme of the urban/rural distinction is more than just demographic curiosity. Remember, ‘parody’ does not equal ‘joke’. Think Soviet Union in 1933 or China in 1960. Mass lethality. But this is an American band, these Talking Heads. And so there is something to celebrate when songwriter/lead ‘vocalist’ David Byrne says “I wouldn’t live there [in the country] if you paid me.” He has the freedom to choose. That’s what’s “big” about “The Big Country”, where folks that produce the food sustain the people who build the buildings. For a fee. Then he trails off in the finale (“goo goo ga ga”), leaving the listener wondering who’s being infantilized. Maybe it’s all of us. This not deep, but it does provide opportunity for meaningful reflection, which is high praise for popular music. And by the way, if you’re sucked in into buying the “Bonus Edition” (2005), this artistic structure is ruined. The album is well produced (Brian Eno), and marks a significant advance over their immediately preceding debut album. The use of backing vocals definitely improves the sound (especially by Tina and the Typing Pool on "The Good Thing"). The head-bobbing, danceable rhythms showcase once again the gifted Tina Weymouth on bass (“Found a Job”!). She gleefully abandons the standard 1-4-5 thump-a-thump for some fine countermelodies and signature chromatic riffs. She’s really good. Ya gotta listen on studio headphones (none of those “earbuds”), and flatten the EQ. Clean and playful guitar. A fine listening experience. I could play “Songs About Buildings and Food” all day, and probably will. 4/5

Another excellent album by Talking Heads. This is their first collaboration with Eno in a series of perfect (or near-perfect) albums. Starting this album, the sound gets funkier, and Byrne's voice gets a lot weirder and more aggressive, best seen in the sexual frustration in "The Girl Wants to Be With the Boys" and critic annoyance in "Artists Only." Through the atmospheric synths and Byrne's accompanying delivery of the lyrics, the stories he tells are clear and imaginative. Being an Eno collab, there are awesome synth moments like the end of "Found a Job." Ironically, I thought their big break track "Take Me to the River" was their weakest track (I like Al Green, but it's not punk and it doesn't have the full charm of funk). I thought "The Big Country" was pretty funny and the parodic use of country tunes, and I love how they used that song to open their shows in the midwest or south. Most tracks don't stand well on their own except for their impressive moments, but together they make for a great album experience. I felt their collaboration improves vastly to perfection starting in the next album.

One of my favorite bands of all time. This record is ok but things really take off for me with their subsequent efforts (starting with "Remain in Light"). While Brian Eno is producer on this record, it feels like his impact on the sound is minimal. Almost as if the band had already written and arranged the material and Eno wasn't able to flex as much. That all changes on the next record. This is probably also the last record that features the core founding members, front and center. After this, Byrne starts bringing in aux instrumentalists ad nauseam. which is great. But, as an example of the tight four-piece that Talking Heads had become, this is The Record. The cover of "Take me to the River" is my favorite version of the song. Guitar interplay in "Artists Only" is wonderful. And, the version of "Found a Job" on "Stop Making Sense" is the moment in that film where things really start getting good. So, I appreciate the song for that reason.

A solid step up from what was already a fantastic debut. Their sophomore album squeezes out a little more catchiness, fun, and memorability that their first album lacked a smidge.

For a band that I like as much as Talking Heads, I'm surprised that I was only familiar with one song on this album, "Take Me to the River". "Thank You for Sending Me an Angel" has the potential of becoming a new favorite track for me, and "Found a Job" was a reminder (but not a surprise) of what Tina added to the band. This album sounded like the Talking Heads, and there's definitely room for this album to grow on me.

Cons: Can get repeaty at times. If you're not in the mood for the sound of one song, you won't be in the mood for any of them. Added to Library? Y Songs Added to Playlist: Found a Job, Take me to the River

Gotta love some Talking Heads. They're one of the few new wave bands I was familiar with before starting this project. Post-punk, but not miserable, and often delightfully abstract! Right up my alley... Fave track - "Take Me To The River", perhaps, or "The Good Thing"...

The thing about Talking Heads is that it's just always a fun listen. I think in my younger days I would have hated it, but now I'm always happy to hear David Byrne being a total weirdo. This was a fun album, with good funky bass and guitar rhythms to David's unusual delivery.

In 1977, the Talking Heads had a vague idea of their sound but nothing was really cemented. In 1978, the Talking Heads had Brian Eno. I can't overstate Eno's influence enough. A distinct focus on rhythm and leaning into David Byrne's distinct style as a frontman leads to More Songs About Buildings And Food being a more polished, focused sound for the band compared to their debut album. I think it's a great step up and the first true album that is the Talking Heads' signature sound. Iconic.

I like this album. Somehow it has a simplicity to it that's unassuming and makes it pleasant to listen to. Also seems more straightforward than an album like Remain In Light, which I honestly enjoy more from Talking Heads as a band. There are some certified bops on this record!

Eno's producer sound doesn't really click for me, even after hearing his solo output. Solid songs, the second half especially, but not nearly as strong as those on the first album. The emphasis on the rhythm section is neat, but everything on top of it is a bit sparse.

One track in and it's already better than our previous Talking Heads album. As a whole, I'm still not really into their style, they strike me as a new-wave prototype without enough excitement or energy to sound truly great. But I liked a handful of songs on here, including the weird Al Green cover. At this point, we've heard their first and second albums in order, which is a perfect way to learn about this band, but I'm still waiting for something big to justify their presence on here and in the hearts of so many people. Favorite tracks: Thank You for Sending Me an Angel, The Big Country, The Good Thing. Album art: Creative I guess, better than just a plain band photo, but it doesn't do much for me. Also they look like complete dorks. 3.5/5

1. Thank You For Sending Me an Angel- energetic way to start the album. Shorter song. 2. With Our Love- another energetic song. Kinda sounds same-y. Does get better and have more variation after the chorus but that's more than halfway through the song. 3. The Good Thing- I already like the beginning of this song much better than the other 2. I really like the lyrics of this song too. The chorus in the choir is kind of off-putting to me though. 4. Warning Sign- Hmm, not my favorite. It's a little droning to me. 5. The Girls Want to be With the Girls- already my fav intro so far. The lyrics to this (and the other songs on the album) are interesting. 6. Found a Job- also more upbeat. The lyrics to this are great. Great message about not getting stuck in a rut. This is probably my favorite song so far. Also the longest song by far at this point in the album. Very creative concept! 7. Artists Only- different than the other tracks so far, starts in a minor key and is a bit more subdued. Lyrics are a little more simple. 8. I'm Not in Love- Another intro that I am liking. Not super loving the lyrics but this song makes me wanna tap my foot. 9. Stay Hungry- A little disco. Kind of trancey with the looped instruments. 10. Take Me to the River- the only song on this album that I had heard previously. Different than the rest of the songs on the album. To me this feels like the most "mainstream" song. It's actually a cover song according to Lyric Genius. This definitely has a good buildup and is just fun to vibe to. 11. The Big Country- has a nice kind of country/rock intro. Lyrics seem kind of satirical. But I also agree with them. Sound-wise not my favorite song on the album. It's a little too long. Overall, not a bad album and I can definitely understand its influence. However, I can only handle David Byrne's voice in small doses and the front half of this album all sounds the same (the back half is definitely better and more interesting). Not my favorite album ever but I appreciate it for what it is.

Geweldig opzwepende muziek op de vroege maandagochtend. Wederom een album met heel leuke deuntjes, dus muzikaal zit het voor mij goed in elkaar. Ik krijg regelmatig het Supertramp gevoel, maar dan ook weer een beetje Blues Brothers. De stem is echter vaak schreeuwerig, een soort Engelse punkrock stem, en dat is helaas dan weer een sterretje minder. Leukste nummer vind ik "The Good Thing".

More Songs About Buildings And Food has the familiar production of producer Brian Eno. The story of how the album name came about sounds like a typical band decision. Quote from Tina Weymouth the bassist: "When we were making this album I remembered this stupid discussion we had about titles for the last album. At that time I said, 'What are we gonna call an album that's just about buildings and food?' And Chris said, 'You call it more songs about buildings and food.'" It seems that a number of artists have been influenced by the sounds of this album, in my experience, MGMT immediately comes to mind through their similar sounding Avant-pop/new-wave electro sounds. Whether that was a direct influence of the producer or Talking Heads themselves remains to be seen. Best: With Our Love Worst: The Big Country Note: Spotify had the 2005 Remastered album with bonus tracks, I only listened to the original tracks off the album.

I didn't hate this (which was a surprise), but every time I started getting into it, the Talking Heads guy would do some Talking Heads weird shit. The best line comes from a song called The Big Country: "I wouldn't live there if you paid me." Abilene people know. Best track: Take Me to the River

Songs... is a classic example of 2nd album syndrome. It's easily forgettable even for Talking Heads fans, stuck in between '77 and Remain in Light. It's all relative, but this might well be the last Talking Heads album you need to care about; you're never going to start your TH journey here. It's important in the discography because it's the first collaboration with Brian Eno, and establishes the world-funk style that is at the heart of all the brilliance that came from the band after. But it was definitely all after. Listening again, I think the letdown is the songwriting on this album, largely forgettable. Consider that the only real standout track with lasting flavor is a cover tune, Take Me to the River. But again, it's relative and the worst Talking Heads album is still something miles above most of the albums in the 1001. And by the way, all credit to Eno, when are the rest of us just going to come out and admit that David Byrne hasn't written a decent song since he didn't have Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz in his corner?

I like the Talking Heads. They're interesting without being too weird. David Byrne vocals sound like he's recording them from a padded room - in a good way. Also - it was interesting to see that Brian Eno (who's album I just listened to and hated) was a studio musician on this album. I'm close to a 4 on this one, but not quite there.

I hadn't heard of talking heads (!!) until I was recently introduced to them in the last couple of years. Now I am a fan and I really appreciate their unique style, their live performances, the influence of Eno, the videos, all of it. This album just isn't quite hitting it for me and I can't put my finger upon whyyy. It's not exactly singing/crying out to me and making say YESS. It just falls slightly flat for some reason, maybe at this point they were honing something magical but not quite there yet for me. UPDATE Take me to the River is a banger what a genius idea to do a version. My faith is restored and I'm reminded of how clever they are.

3.8 - Some good songs on here (“Take Me To the River”, “Warning Sign”) but if I’m being honest I’d say Brian Eno played an overly heavy-handed influence on the sound. To me it’s very similar to Devo’s “Are We Not Men…” that Eno produced at right around the same time. Still, it’s got lots of energy and fun dance-y beats throughout.

A great album that has plenty of funk and tight arrangements. Talking Heads were often over analysed with plenty of post modern bollocks written about them.

A great example of how making good music makes no sense. Besides his... unique... vocal delivery, there's so many nonconventional choices. Why is there a choir in the Good Thing?! Why is the chorus just the same melodic line repeated like 6x? It seems amateurish, if bold. But there's obviously a plan. And usually it doesn't work (The Mothers of Invention, IMO) and sometimes it works. The bassist is so tasteful. Never a star, and she could show off a bit more, but not at all boring.

Not as immediate or charming as their other work, meaning it ends up in standard twee territory and lacks some of the eclectic energy that makes a Talking Heads LP stand out.

Third Talking Heads album in my first 250. OK it's not my list - so here we go. I...like it? It's actually a bit more accessible to me than their previous albums I've reviewed. At the same time nothing is jumping at me in the "holy crap i need to hear this over and over" realm. I do like "Artists Only" - odd, and a really cool bass sound; I will also note that "Take Me To The River" is such a great cover - they really made it their own and honestly I like it as much as the original. I enjoy the overall mix/sound of this album too. Talking Heads were a good band I definitely underrated back in the day and even though I don't know if I'd frequently put them on, I would never object to listening to an album of theirs. That screams 3 stars to me... 6/10 3 stars.

Great opener - I really like the pace and the harmonized musical stylings on Thank You for Sending Me an Angel. It shows some real talent. With Our Love tried to do the same, with not quite as good effect. And I guess the whole album has that feel - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I found myself a bit bored from tracks 3-5, whereas Found a Job better captured that energy from the first (and second, sort of) tracks. And then it sort of went back and forth between cool sound and boring. I liked I'm Not In Love, Stay Hungry, and Take Me to the River is a really solid remake (the only track I knew coming in). The other two tracks on side two I found boring. I waffled between a 3 and a 4; probably a 3.5 and I'm rounding down. Just didn't captivate me like their first album.

Conec poc de l'obra dels Talking Heads. Mai m'han cridat gaire l'atenció. És el primer àlbum que escolto sencer d'ells, i no m'ha entusiasmat. Al contrari, se m'ha fet pesat, insuls, sense emoció. No he connectat gens ni mica amb les melodies, ni amb les lletres, ni amb la producció de l'àlbum. De ben segur que es tracta d'una obra important però jo no he sabut o no he pogut connectar-hi.

The singing is just horrible, like Chris Martin horrible.

There are maybe MAYBE three songs by Talking Heads that I can stand. This album is not those.

Wie gut hätte das ohne den Sänger werden können! Byrnes Gesang ist unerträglich. Da müsste einiges passieren, damit ich das durchhöre.
