Biography

At the start of their career, Talking Heads were all nervous energy, detached emotion, and subdued minimalism. When they released their last album about 12 years later, the band had recorded everything from art-funk to polyrhythmic worldbeat explorations and simple, melodic guitar pop. Between their first album in 1977 and their last in 1988, Talking Heads became one of the most critically ... Read more in Amazon's Talking Heads Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelic pop, big on tunes and weirdness 24 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is Talking Heads at their most commercial, and a very catchy album. The sturdy rhythm section that was one of Talking Heads' trademarks are complemented here by some very poppy guitars and proper songs, though songwriter David Byrne's lyrics are as existentialist as ever. The highlights are the two brilliant singles 'Road to Nowhere' (their biggest hit) and 'And She Was', and the bouncing, funky 'Stay Up Late' but there are no duff tracks and this is a big, brassy, sunny album which is great to sing along to as you do the housework.

4.0 out of 5 stars The last great Talking Heads album 27 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Some reviwers have a very strange view of the world as we can see elsewhere in relation to this album. This in no way sounds like a Byrne solo. The evidence of the other Heads influence is clear here. I boought this on it's original release,and loved it1 How can you not be won over by an album that starts with And She Was? If the other remastered albums are anything to go by this will sound fabntastic. Some listeners probably mistake the less hard edged sound here and do not listen to the songs, which are as out there as Byrne's lyrics ever got but the quality of the music: sound, rhythm and variety of styles that seemlessly flow together whithout getting repetative or bland is a triumph. Listen up, this is great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars A reinvention that wasn't, really 2 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Little Creatures' was the first Talking Heads album that was released while I was actually a fan of them. In other words, it was the first album of theirs that I was hoping was going to be good. I was 14. It was brilliant then, and it sounds pretty brilliant today.

What's often underestimated about the Heads is their sheer strangeness. 'Little Creatures' is a highly deceptive album - glossy, precise, beautifully and tastefully played, but entirely without thumping gated reverb, glamorous 80's style digital delay or horrible overdubbage, it sounds weirdly stark and almost puritan next to most other mainstream records of the period. And as for the songs, who the hell knows what 'Give Me Back My Name' is about? 'Television Man' is an anthem in the making that never got played live. 'Road To Nowhere' has to be the most joyful song about death ever put on record. (No wonder that Dave Eggers' liner note praises it, and its incomparable video, for the 'power and knowledge' it seemed to offer him as a soon-to-be-orphaned teenager.)

I had a very strange sense of deja vu when I first heard this album; I seemed to have always known it. To this day, I don't know why 'And She Was' feels like a song I've known since infancy when I can only have been 14 when I first heard it. This is, for my money, Talking Heads' last truly wonderful album, its professional sheen and surface calmness betrayed by all kinds of trouble and anxiety beneath. The next one, 'True Stories', is a mere offshoot of a movie, and while they got it together again for most of the tracks on their final album, they were already hardly a band anymore.

Maybe I just never noticed it before, but the video of 'Road to Nowhere' seems to have necessitated butchering the song somewhat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talking Heads - Little Creatures 23 Mar 2013
By L. Law
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I shall leave it to the music experts to tell you why this album is so good, my endorsement is far simpler. This is a brilliant album and with all Talking Heads offerings the production and engineering enhances the listeners experience. Vocals are amazing, arrangements terrific but that simply drumming is the sheer delight here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not classic Talking Heads 9 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Another good Talking Heads album, released a long while after Speaking In Tongues, primarily I imagine because of David Byrne's concentration on his solo career.
The album contains some fantastic songs (e.g. 'Road To Nowhere', 'Stay Up Late'), but it doesn't quite compare to their wonderful first 4 albums.
It still knocks spots off more or less everything else that was produced in the mid-80s, though.
