Rediscovered this album last night. Lack of synthesizers and drum machines aside, this might be one of the most 80’s albums out there. The rich rock star discovers “World Music” is a minor 1980’s music trope and a lot of the lyrical content locks this stuff in the 1987/8 time frame. Why this wasn’t a David Byrne solo album is beyond me. I bet the other three Talking Heads were thrilled about the band’s new direction. I recall that CD/cassette copies of this got a bonus track. A marketing ploy that was reversed within 5 years.
