4 stars Heads was the last album by Osibisa's original lineup. It lacks some of the spirit and mystery of the first two albums. And the band probably should have stayed with their producer rather than trying to produce on their own. At first listen it's a bit of a letdown after the Osibisa & Woyaya albums. But upon further listening you can appreciate the music and the playing. Heads has a more laid back, jazzy sound. The album still has a level of creativity that got lost on later more commercial, even disco-ish songs. The follow-up Happy Children was a good album, but Heads was the end of the classic Osibisa era.
