5 stars In 1980, Talking Heads were on the rise. With two fairly successful albums already out, they released thier third album, "Fear of Music". It was even more creative and innovative than the last album, and is also thier second with producer Brain Eno. The album begins with "I Zimbra", which is heavily infulenced by African music, and foreshadows thier next album, "Remain in Light", which is just full of african-inspired rhythms. The rest of the album is full of extremely quirky, creative, smart, and well written songs. Some songs, like "Cities", and "Life During Wartime", are very funky, and "Memories Can't Wait"'s intro sounds like something you'd hear from an Alternative rock band in the 90s. The majority of the songs take place in dystopian worlds/societies, with increasing panic and war. The album ends with "Electric Guitar", where the characters in the song finally make a move, start a revolution, and then the spooky and somewhat ambient "Drugs". Really, every song on here is a masterpiece. Go out and buy it, now! It's a masterpiece. 5/5
