Review by Chris S
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars By the time Naked was released TH had firmly run out of ideas in a big way. There were rumours of infighting within the band, supposedly more because of Byrne's disinterest and focus on other projects, so it was little surprise they disbanded three years later from an official standpoint.

" Blind" starts the album in a positive fashion, with a great jazzy/funky riff, great sarcastic lyrics from David Byrne but the song does fizzle out after a while. You expect more from it but it never really takes off. " Mr.Jones" the first single off the album again is catchy and pleasant with a good beat, but it sounds like the band is just going through the motions but not so much Byrne, as there is not enough inflection in his voice.There is the latino american influence on Naked and " Totally Nude" is a combination of that an country western. Not a clever idea or a good result. " (Nothing But) Flowers" is definitely one of the high points on the album with a return to the Talking Heads of old, it again though fizzles out at the end.

The second side is unfortunately poorer than the first side and "The Facts Of Life" talking about the ape/man similarities has some weird vocals with almost Daniel Lanois style slide guitar in the background. " Bill" Offers some respite from the ennui with great tempo and guitar work. The final chapter " Cool Water" has the only progressive side to it reminiscent of the excellent Fear Of Music era, nine years previously and is by far the best track on the album. So this was Byrne's last album and the band called it a day soon after only to reform again without David Byrne for The Heads album in 1996. It is their weakest effort as far as studio albums go, so only recommended for collectors of their music. Two stars.

1 stars Anatomy of a death spiral

The blood was in the water during "Little Creatures" and by the time "Naked" rolled around the flaming orb had crashed spectacularly into the ground. No longer a real band in anything but name, the latest David Byrne album found the group in Paris searching for elusive inspiration I suppose. They wouldn't find it. Using the oft tried but rarely successful plan of substituting true band camaraderie and/or creativity with throwing everything at the wall hoping something sticks, they attempted an improvisational method of jamming with tons of musicians in the hopes something magical would just appear before them. Not surprisingly, it didn't happen. "Naked" is an overbaked disaster born of too many cooks, no recipe or vision, and a heavy dose of trendy world music crap. It's not exciting, it has no passion, it quite simply isn't there. I hope I'm not waffling.

That obituary written, I always like to say something positive, and there are a few nice moments. While most point to the funky but directionless "Blind" or the hit single "Nothing But Flowers," there is a very cool track in "The Democratic Circus" which conveys a relaxing, classy, "mature" sense of pop music. But so much of the album is just lost and lightweight, especially in the killer grooves that used to drive the band. Listen to the completely weak backing track to "Totally Nude"?talk about going through the motions. "The Facts of Life" pushes boredom so far that it almost becomes interesting, until you smash into the car in front of you having become transfixed with the mechanical nature of the song's beat. The final track "Cool Water" sports some spiffy guitar work and a nice building of momentum. In the closing moments Byrne and the music finally unite and have some convincing energy and vision. A nice moment but far too little, too late.

Maybe I just plain don't get it. Sorry to be so scathing here but I have no love for "Naked." Talking Heads should have hung it up with "Stop Making Sense" and David could have pursued material like this with more clarity.

2 stars Let me first say that I am glad to finally see Talking Heads here on this site. I'm not sure what kind of Prog they are, though- New Wave Prog? Dance Prog? Hip Prog? Whatever... Because I listened to this album recently I will review it first of all the Heads records. It is not even close to b ... (read more)
