Killer album. I love the low end, Bass, Tuba, Bari Sax. Just the wide variety of instruments all coming together for such a beautiful piece.
Man, this one was a struggle to get through.
Never really like 'punk' music, or anything that was considered grunge. This was really no exception. I enjoyed the backend of the album with Hey being probably my favorite song.
Nice, easy soul music. So many hits recorded here.
No patience for the Cure. Who cares.
Fantastic!! Now we are getting somewhere. The keys, the funk, and Stevie's wonderful voice.
Not the worst thing I have heard so far, but I am starting to wonder why so many 1-hit wonders are being included.
It was okay...why did they try to sound like Pink Floyd?
Again with the melodramatic
Now we are talking. The bass lines on this album or so funky. Of course, so is Isaac himself.
It was just okay. I really feel the focus on lyrics in this list, but this just doesn't speak to me at all. It feels much more like I am going through a list of 1-hit wonders from UK. =(
This was pretty good. Definitely a different kind of album for the time it was released.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this album.
I didn’t look up anything on this album, just listened. I like the variety of sound.
No. I always thought this band was something else entirely, but what they are is much different, and I am not sure it is better. =[
Definitely sounded like a trip, and reading up on the background, he was spot on with his work.
Really nice, smooth album. Bossa Nova is a fun genre of music.
Not too bad. Bullet the Blue Sky (sp) was my favorite track. I remember this album from childhood, and didn't like it then, but I have a much better appreciation.
First time listening to the full album. It was okay, and had a lot more going on than just Santa's and aliens.
This record was all about a dysfunctional marriage...over and over and over again. I get it, dude is a drunk.
ugh. Never liked them; never liked grunge or whatever they called it.
This album went very fast, and faded into background music just as quickly. I found it very forgettable.
Not the worst thing, but is this REALLY an album I needed to hear before I die?
It wasn't bad, but very long. I could probably find a song or 2 to listen to again.
It’s the Talking Heads, of course it is going to be fantastic. It was! Why though? Instrumentation, is why. This is a band, not a pop group, so there is more to listen to than just lyrics and basic rhythms
It was fun. I have heard his newer versions of many of these songs. Nice to catch the “originals”
uhm, I thought this band was some kind of pop group. Am I wrong? This was not pop.
This was great! Not only is there a wonderful story behind Miriam, but the music is also great. This is my first 'world music' album to appear on the list.
Not bad. Not sure who/where this dude is from, but I enjoyed the album.
This was fun, but nothing memorable
I love Bonnie but this album sounds very, very much like a stereotypical country/blues album in the 80’s. The guitar didn’t seem to be on fire.
This is my all time favorite band, so I am biased, however, this double album is simply amazing. So many hits here as well.
Very interesting. I had no idea what to expect and enjoyed the surprise. Very psychedelic, and ambient.
