Oh man. What an album. There aren't many words for it, except that it's awesome. <3
you got their new one yet?
obviously nothing like My Life... but there's still 3 or 4 good tracks.
I was really excited at first now I've settled down to just liking it.
A few lovely songs on it.
But it was always one I "appreciated" rather than actually listened to.
it's awful, the first two tracks are interesting and pretty fucking good but the rest is cod funk shite, makes me cringe and boil at the same time. Crap.
that despite being a fan of both artists, I never really warmed to Bush of Ghosts.
But I like the new album a lot - it's the best thing Byrne has done for a long while.
Is unbelieveably good. It deserves a classification system all of its own. I'm pissed off that they have "disappeared" the track Qu'ran, which is sort of fair enough if they are scared of a fatwah...but...
See also: http://bushofghosts.wmg.com/listen.php . Kudos to the guys for making the site and the material available.
A mate in work gave me his copy and I listened to it for the first time today. Really liked it, top stuff. I hope Byrne's 'Songs of David Byrne & Brian Eno' tour reaches Ireland at some point. He's coming to Europe in the spring I think.
Hearing it now, you don't realise how stunning it was when it first came out. However, I can't say I listen to it a lot - there's something somehow "missing"... Good in the car.
