where to start with either/both?
More Songs Sbout Buildings and Food or Remain in Light
probably in my top 5 records ever made. definitely that. whilst i like their other stuff, it's miles ahead as a whole record.
C.Y.S.L.A.B.F. for mika miko. new album in a month too, eeee.
at the beginning with '77 and work your way through, as the albums get a bit more layered and complex.
I wouldn't say Fear Of Music is miles ahead as a complete record either - More Songs and Remain In Light are just as well structured and compact, and 77 is a great catchy pop record from beginning to end.
I've developed a habit of listening to Moon Rocks on a frighteningly regular basis. First four tracks are great too, but the album version of Naive Melody is not a patch on the SMS version (which is in the running for Greatest Song of All Time)
I'd recommend The Name of This Band... but only when you're really familiar with their other stuff so you can really appreciate the light and shade between that and the album versions.
Not sure about the SMS version of This Must Be The Place being better than the Speaking In Tongues one.
I'm not a huge fan of the backing singers, they're a bit eighties and cringeworthy. The album version has a much tighter guitar on it.
