possibly one of the most consistently brilliant albums ever
start of with 77. Loads of classics and guaranteed toe tapping to the max!
Then, once you're hooked listen to Remain In Light. Your new favourite band right there.
But my favourite is More Songs About Buildings and Food.
maybe i should try and skew all good threads to contain DiS-freindly search phrases, like 'Ah I've just bought a new LCD tv, but what I really need a big new soundsystem to play this Shangaan electro record'then slowly take over DiS and turns all it's content into pictures of Delia Derbyshire....
oh, and the answer is the first one.
And decided it was Fear of Music.
That's not their best album, that's just me being pedantic. My personal favourite is Remain In Light, but you'll be safe with any of their first four.
interestingly (to me) i have never found anyone who has agreed with me and i have never really got into their other albums.
u might aswell ignore me
Its very hard to choose an order I think, it wouldn't really mean a lot as they're equally brilliant in different ways. However, if pushed I'd say
Remain In Light
More Songs About Buildings and Food
Fear Of Music
Speaking In Tongues
With the Stop Making Sense film sitting atop them all as my favourite thing of all time
Stop Making Sense is the best thing they did. 'The Name of This Band...' is another great live album and different enough from SMS to justify getting as well
we're just good friends. First TH album I bought and still my fave
will lead me to say that. Probably not the best album to start with, but probably/most certainly their best album.
if ever I heard one.
First half brilliant.
Second half kinda crap.
Remain in light a close second
