4 stars The third collaboration between Talking Heads and Brian Eno is a feast of polyrhythmic wonders, with world music influences (particularly derived from African music) prominent. At the same time as preparing this David Byrne and Eno had been working on their classic My Life In the Bush of Ghosts, and Byrne appears to have applied the rhythm experiments from that to this album, as well as developing a fascinating stream-of-consciousness, almost improvisational lyrical style reminiscent of similar lyric-writing approaches by Eno, David Bowie and Iggy Pop. The band themselves have never been tighter, with Adrian Belew's contributions providing a precedent for his future work with the reformed King Crimson. Plus this album has Once In a Lifetime, which has to be one of the best art rock singles of all time.
