Talking Heads

Fuck the talking heads you hear and see on a daily basis in the media. Let's discuss the only Talking Heads worth your time.
8Talking Heads
True Stories


Everyone's allowed a dud right? At least this album has "Radio Head", a track that would be influential to a successful worldwide act in the future.
7Talking Heads
Little Creatures


"We're on a road to nowhere." Look at that! It's David Byrne accurately predicting the future.
6Talking Heads
Naked


A pretty meaningful last hurrah for the group. It's still their tongue in cheek, sarcastic, nearly bitter art tunes mixed with a lot of latin influence Byrne was really into at the time. "(Nothing But) Flowers" was their best song since 1983.

More Songs About Buildings and Food


A slight sophomore slump between the debut and Fear Of Music. It's has the same approach as both of those records, but doesn't hit the listener directly like those two do. "Take Me To The River" is an extremely memorable cover and deserves your attention first.

Talking Heads: 77


The album that started it all. Hell, for all I know this album could have been recorded at CBGB. It just has an authentic risky yet questioning drive about it. All the songs are great and there's even a few that have reached classic status with time. It's just missing the confidence Byrne and company would settle into a few records later.

Speaking in Tongues


If Talking Heads put out an album you could really dance to in their career, well, this is it. This shit is the funkiest white people can get. The electronic samples, drums, and other percussion are the highlights. They had not, and would not, release an album that was as much fun as this one. "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" is also a contender for the most sincere love song of all time and ends the album on a relaxing note after the dance party.

Fear Of Music


Fear Of Music is the bleakest Talking Heads record. Dark humor, talk of war and the destruction of society, worsening pollution, and substance abuse make up the lyrical content of the third trip through the band's psyche. I highly recommend listening to "Drugs" on repeat late at night as you're questioning your existence.
1Talking Heads
Remain in Light


Did you expect anything else from me? This was it. The most experimental and world-influenced the band would become. The last record Eno produced and co-wrote with the band. The last record where Adrian Belew contributed before moving onto the next project, King Crimson. The work and collaborations just came together perfectly here. Short length and only eight tracks are the only flaw here. Go listen! It's all the same as it ever was.
