Review by Chris S
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars This soundtrack album from Talking Heads came hard on the heels of the Little Creatures release. A David Byrne film which hinted at even more autonomy he would have in terms of furure sound. Most soundtrack albums can throw listeners a curve ball or two so on initial listen many years ago I was not too surprised to be disappointed. The album is a mish mash of songs related to supposed true story events with Byrne's take or spin on it. Brian Eno had moved on as well with the result an almost retro sounding TH's hearking back to the first two albums, but lacking the necessary substance. " Wild Life" is a great catchy, likeable single off True Stories. " Puzzlin Evidence" and " Love For Sale" pretty good also. The rest very mediocre and not much to shout about. Recommended for diehard fans only or more specifically, David Byrne fans. Two stars.

This seems to be pre ... (read more)
