I'd start with Remain in Light and then go backwards from there: Fear of Music, More Songs About Buildings & Food, and Talking Heads 77. There is also a recent best-of out there that looks like a decent overview.

Some of the first CDs I ever purchased were Talking Heads. Stop Making Sense and the Sand In the Vaseline compilation.

I've never bought or heard any of their albums.

Attababy, Ass Dan. Wounded Rhymes was way up on mine. Shame about it being out of print. Most of yours made the top 80 I Cobbler'd together.

I'd prefer to go with albums over compilations, so I'll do the Remain in Light thing and throw it in reverse from there. Thanks, pal.

Remain in Light is creeping up my list of best-ever albums, so I hope you find something to enjoy in it.

Yes.

It sounds exactly like their 80s albums.

Which means it's awesome.

I'd co-sign this. Start with Remain in Light (good balance of their groovy Speaking in Tongues period and the more post-punk influenced stuff) and work backwards. Fear of Music is my favorite, but there's plenty to appreciate before that.

The Name of this Band is Talking Heads actually works great as an entry point too, I think. I loved it; it did enough with the arrangements to separate itself from the studio output while remaining true enough to the originals to be recognizable. It's one of those rare necessary live albums.

Yeah, I have no idea how to even begin to describe these guys. One song at a time, sure, but I never know what to expect from them. Their debut scared the shit out of me after keeping I Just Can't Be Happy Today on a constant loop.

So, I think Tonight's The Night has become my favorite Neil Young album. Powerful stuff. Great tunes.

Bruce Berry was a workin man
He used to load that Econoline van...

I'm loving that Spotify has basically the entirety of Neil's massive catalogue available. I might just go ahead and listen to everything the man has recorded.

I don't have a Spotify account.

I just don't know.

Holy shit, Lemon sounds like it's melting. And when Daddy's Gonna Pay kicks back in with YOU'VE GOT A HEAD FULL OF TRAFFIC and rattles my speakers, that's bliss. What a beautiful yet distant record. It sounds like it's transmitting from Mars but still manages to communicate the usual oversized U2 emotions that make hipsters uncomfortable.
Amen. Zooropa has long been my very favorite U2 album.

I don't, either. I've heard generally good things, though...
