    First album I ever heard from Talking Heads, hooked me forever [2]

    Might be my favorite Talking Heads album. Up there with their debut, both of which are better than Remain in Light, IMO.

    this or Remain in light? Hmmm. Life During Wartime is great (though not a patch on the stupendous Stop Making Sense version) but Once in a Lifetime edges it. I Zimbra and Paper are skippable, but so is Seen and Not Seen. Nothing on RIL is as beautiful as Heaven, but nothing here is as drivingly unstoppable as The Great Curve. The Overload wins battle of the weird final track. Cities beats Houses in Motion but Crosseyed and Painless and Born Under Punches kick Air, Mind and Animals out of the park. Remain In Light wins, but it had to go the whole distance.

    "I like how the album title can be interpreted in two ways - the quite literal 'Fear Of Music' itself, or the album as a collection of 'Fear Of......' songs ('Fear Of' Music) - e.g. Fear Of Cities, Fear Of Drugs, Fear Of Life During Wartime etc." [2]. It really fits almost all the songs from the album except "I Zimbra".

    I think "Fear of Music " is the (Post)-Punk record of them. Really great and always stand a showdown with " Remain in Light" is a year older and more " Glam/Art ".

    Remain in Light is so much better.

    Is it just me or does David Byrnes vocals on this one sometimes sound a lot like John Cale?

    It has masterpieces... But has also weak songs. This one doesn't convince me at all.

    Awesome. All the way through. No doubt Byrne at his most paranoid...
