Just checking out this new album, so no comments on it yet.
But, I am surprised you’re so down on Bryne’s more recent albums. Of the things he’s done, I am most down on the last few Talking Heads albums–which I found to be very unfulfilling after the first few albums.
But, I hold Bryne’s recent albums in pretty high regard. I definitely was not disposed to get into them at first, but they really won me over.
Not that I assume we’d consistently agree on things like this–but just surprised you’re suggesting those albums are so totally awful.
