5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly infectious 4 Dec 2008
By M. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and have listened to almost nothing else since. Odd, since it is by no means a flawless album. It just happens to have half a dozen tracks that are so infectious you find yourself humming them after only one or two hearings.

From the opening chords of the opening track, Home, you know you are in the company of two men of a certain age, comfortable in themselves, their lives and their talent. The song has the nerve to skate close to Simon and Garfunkel and still emerge as a distinctively Byrnian piece: 'Home, with the heighbours fighting/Home, always so exciting/Home, were my parents telling the truth?' It sets the tone for a determinedly upbeat, anthemic, collection: even Byrne's delight in dystopia and dysfunction is carried off with jaunty delight. Far more True Stories than Bush of Ghosts.

The second track, My Big Nurse, is the gentle star of the album. It has a melody that gets right under your skin right from the off. If listening on your MP3 player you will embarass yourself with good old fashioned foot tapping. And when the melody is picked up by the same unapologetic synth that joined in on Home, it reveals a simplicity that borders on the banality of a child's musical toy - and yet when the track ends after only three minutes you feel cheated: you could hum it forever.

With I Feel My Stuff you fear this is one of those albums that opens strongly but fades away. It is a bland, over-produced amble. And even the title track that follows, for all its hymnal quality, doesn't quite deliver on its glorious hook line. But then the collection returns to its pure pop best with the sing-along Life is Long. And then another instantly catchy melody follows with The River.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's no place like home 25 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD
This was always a match made in heaven. Brian Eno, musical muse to the stars collaborating with David Byrne, one of the most inventive and eclectic pop music artists of recent times. They are at heart masters of experimental music. Their first album `Bush of Ghosts' was a natural progression of the ethnic rhythms explored in Talking Heads' `Remain in Light' album. Although `Bush of Ghosts' proved to be a truly seminal work, I always felt a little miffed that it seemed far more an Eno album than a true collaboration. This time around, the album is much more of a shared work and surprisingly a far more traditional effort, but it is still hugely enjoyable.

`Everything that happens Today' is a natural successor to the gospel-driven `Little Creatures'. It's a nostalgic album that yearns for a time and place that may be disappearing. The way we relate to each other and what we do in the places we inhabit is changing rapidly with the onset of globalization and social networking. Do these changes alter our feelings about concepts such as home, families and neighbourhoods and signify the beginning of worries about isolation and security. This album explores this theme on many of the songs.

`Home' is a fantastic opener, describing the main characteristics of that funny place called `Home'. It provides `familiar smells and flavors' but it can also be a strangely alienating place where `no-one ever speaks'. What is `Home'? A place where we come from, where we live now or where we want to live in the future?

`My Big Nurse' is a gently-strummed and beautifully-worded song about hope. It declares that despite all the troubles in the world today, we can take comfort in a large protective blanket of optimism that solutions will be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very fine collaboration 24 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've followed Brian Eno since the first Roxy album and David Byrne since the first Talking Heads album. Only occasionally, but significantly, have they worked together. 'My life in the bush of ghosts' was their high point together, an album of revolutionary importance. Strangely, since I rate them individually so highly, I had few expectations of this album. I wondered how truly different it would be - would it be a rather predictable fusion? How great it has been to be so surprised. This is a really fine album. At times wistful, at times edgy and exciting, always lyrically and musically intriguing. Both BE and DB let go, creating something beyond what either could do on his own. And also beautiful. Beyond all, beautiful. A rich, very special album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few tracks short of being a classic 15 Dec 2008
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is so easy on the ears, a wonderfully enjoyable listen, full of a mixture of very immediate, catchy tracks and more experimental, chilled and near-ambient pieces all with lyrics which are unmistakably David Byrne. The first track, 'Home' is very nearly instantly familiar, possibly because it gets a little too close for comfort to Simon & Garfunkel's 'Homeward Bound', but just about retains enough originality to get away with it - it's an excellent track, regardless. Following on from it is the sauntering piece of laid-back gorgeousness, 'My Big Nurse', which features an instantly lovable melody.

After the long, interesting - but flawed - 'I Feel My Stuff', we are treated to a piece of choral loveliness, 'Everything That Happens' which flows over you like cool silk on a warm summer's day. We're back to catchy and upbeat with 'Life Is Long', which gets the feet tapping and the head nodding along with its pleasant beat. After this, 'The River' is slightly unimpressive and comes across as a bit lacking in invention, being a constantly repeating verse only broken up by a nice vocal break in the middle.

'Strange Overtones' is a great track, though, which could easily have been one of the great pop songs of the 1980's and, had it been released by Talking Heads, probably would have been. 'Wanted For Life' is an electrifying mix of synthesizers, prominent drums, acoustic guitars and trademark Byrne vocals - in other words, it's very good. However, perhaps competing for the title of the album's best track (with many contenders) is the superb 'One Fine Day', a shimmering, sunny slice of brilliance.

Very Eno/Byrne. Good to work to. Would have liked a couple (at least) of Eno's lyrics rather than all Byrnes. Melodic, funny, sad, powerful, exiting, disturbing. Read more
