by David Byrne
Released: Mar 2004
Lushly produced and overflowing with strings and strong melodies, this is Byrne's finest solo work in ages. His distinct voice lends an air of familiarity to grand missives that fuse Tin Pan Alley-style pop and the avant-garde. Byrne also has the good sense to cover a Lambchop song and duet with Rufus Wainwright.
