speaking in tongues?
this must be the place <3
people preferring other albums pretty much destroys my brain

=2 - Speaking in Tongues
=2 - '77
=3 - Little Creatures
=3 - True Stories.
Fuck it, I love those records so much. All of them. Don't get me started on the live ones. Right, of to Stoke Newington to see BLK JKS.
I fucking hate the Tom Tom Club and i'm off to SN, not of.
The production is sublime. The songs are brilliant.
Speaking in Tongues would be amazing if they'd kept eno on board.
simply for the wondrous consecutive trio of Mind, Paper and Cities.
Then it's probably Remain in Light, Stop Making Sense and '77, for me.
then Little Creatures <3
but it's gotta be 'fear of music' - just for that animals track - kills me every time. either that or whatever album 'once in a lifetime' is from 'cos i reckon that's my favourite single of the 80's.
It's very rarely that I choose to put on another TH album.
it's most consistent.
'Stop Making Sense'? I know it's basically a live greatest hits, but it's the one I listen to most often. It might well have been the first record I ever heard, I certainly remember it more than anything else being played when I was little. If I can't have that I'll have Remain in Light with Fear of Music a close second.
depending on mood
but Remain in Light has crept in there only in the last few months, it's quite hard to decide.
Was Fear... for the longest time, but I think sooner or later RIL just gets everyone, and rightly so.
May I just point out that Naked is a great album and deserves a lot more love.
i'd thought fear was the best for a long long time, it's not that i didn't like RiL then...it felt like more a collection of songs than a complete record. it clicked with me one day when i listened to it on the train and it's probably in my top 5 of all time now.
also made probably the greatest live album/video of all time.. kraftwerk/prince aside.
although speaking in tongues pushes it close because This Must Be The Place, and Making Flippy Floppy are that good
Remain in Light
