Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Feeling funky and nostalgic.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Seems a bit before its time, not my favourite but not bad by any means.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Oh hell yeah.

Final Thoughts:

I decided to stretch my musical taste this year by slowly working through a list of 1001 Albums to Listen To Before You Die, Talking Heads had a few albums on that list (Including More Songs About Buildings And Food) and I’ve been blown away by how much I love their stuff. Honestly for the most part my music taste doesn’t go earlier than the 90’s, so finding gold in the 70’s is really helping me gain confidence to explore more. More Songs About Buildings And Food is a lot of fun, I can see why so many people love Byrne after hearing what he does with this album.
