3 stars Talking Heads: 77 is the debut from the band Talking Heads. When the band came out they played a kind of punk rock that was very art rock influenced, and the sound the band produced on this album helped spawn the new wave genre. The album isn't necessarily progressive rock but the influence is there. The album is at its core a punk rock album, but the influences from other genres made the album stick out from other punk rock releases. Talking Heads play music that has weird rhythms and a grooving bass played by Tina Weymouth that defined the bands sound not just on this record but on the entire bands discography. David Bryne's vocals are also a staple of the music. I recommend Talking Heads: 77 if you're either getting into the band, or want good art music. The band did have better things to come, but this album is one of my favorites by them.
