A seemingly forgotten minor-classic, I loved this album
when it came out in 1983 or whenever it
was.......Brian ENo and David Byrne lay down some super-groovy funk tracks and compliment them with various "found" speech segments, from radio broadcasts or whatever...the result is a very different listening experience, unlike maybe any you have ever had......
I know of know proper way to describe this, suffice to say that "Mea Culpa" and "The Jezebel Spirit" are nothing if not interesting, but the highlight for me is the fantastic "America is Waiting", a great track no matter what era, artist, or formula....trust me. If you are a fan of 1970's Roxy Music-type stuff, or 1980's Talking Heads-type stuff, you know what I mean about the rewards of taking chances, and this is a possible gem that you may have overlooked.....personally I recommend it, and I can PERFECTLY what I mean about the risks/rewards of taking CHANCES, as so many are afraid to do.
