4 stars ....and enter Brian Eno. This sophomore release was bound to attract someone as visionary and musically proactive as Brian Eno. David Byrne and Eno immediately struck up a solid rapport and his influence just begins to show it's face on More Songs About Buildings and Food. Not slap in your face stuff, but enough influence to increase the overall tempo of the TH sound, more textured and layered sound. A heavier feel to it. A slightly more serious project.

Again this release is consistently solid throughout and the songs range for the most part between three and five minutes. Check out the excellent " Artist's Only", Byrnes theatrics on " Stay Hungry", their version of Al Green's " Take Me To The River" and the highpoint on the album the end song " The Big Country". Naturally evolving for their follow up Fear Of Music, the jigsaw pieces fit ever so nicely. Excellent music from innovative musicians.

Chris S | 4/5 |
