True Stories – Talking Heads

Talking Heads True Stories

True Stories

1986, 4.5/10
The soundtrack for a David Byrne directed film, True Stories feels like a less successful version of Little Creatures. This time Byrne doesn’t manage the same quality of songs, and he’s dismissed it as the worst project he’s ever been involved in, although if nothing else, it’s notable for the song ‘Radio Head’ which inspired the name of a certain Oxford-based quintet.

‘Wild Wild Life’ is a pleasant and infectious single, while it’s also interesting to hear the Heads take up a completely artless approach to rock and roll in the opening song ‘Love For Sale’. For the first time a Talking Heads album sounded similar to the one that came before it, and it’s arguably the weakest entry in a stellar discography.
