4 stars Fear of music is the third album by the band Talking Heads. The album continued the collaboration with Brian Eno. Fear of music further evolved the band by adding in funk and disco elements into their artsy new wave pop/rock sound. The album is personally one of my favorites by the band because I truly got the most enjoyment from listening to Fear of music and its follow-up. I Zimbra is the opening track of the album and its interesting because it uses African rhythms, which the band would continue to utilize later on in their career. I also noticed that the album had more songs in the minor key, which made the album sound darker than the previous two. Fear of music is great because the band continued to evolve and experiment with their sound, which is why they were so successful and why Fear of music and their other records are great and fun listens. Fear of music is a great album to start with if you are getting into the band.
