 I Zimbra was created around the time fripp and the alien math scale rhythmic discipline thing went public, before this thing crawled into the belew-levin-bruford-fripp crimson - I Zimbra might be the debut of that thing even...perhaps it needed the hive mind of eno/byrne/belew/fripp to rupture itself up. "Larks tonuges" was close, but outside in.  This thing breathes inside out, like a cool ivory jacket with it's warm blue veins on the outside. Check out the much earlier "Dance of Maya" ( preferably about 3 times faster for cross-examination ) by Mahavishnu Orchestra ( CGTw/levin&masteleto also bow to it beautifly ) - this is wherethe thing first clawed thru the blood-brain barrier, stretched it's scaly head thru our lovely scabs, sniffed about and decided to come back when we were ready... ( oh yes, the lyrics might be in it's alien language which has no earthly interpretation we humans can bear to comprehend (? )  I Zimbra could be the name of this language, or the Thing's name ( "I Zimbra, you Jane" ) or the coming invasion's name...what do you think?boober wrote:

Just half a hit for me please.

 


I used to think the album cover was cool because it had a "raised pattern" on it.  I guess that's what passed for cool 39 years ago (to me, anyway).

A great trio for sure, but I think you have to consider the Stones 4 consecutive studio albums:
Beggar's Banquet, Let it Bleed, Sticky Fingers & Exile on Main Street.
Bump BB if you want to keep it to 3.

 
I love Talking Heads, and these are 3 great consecutive ones.  Consider also Floyd's run in the 70's:
1971 Meddle
1973 Dark Side
1975 Wish You Were Here
1977 Animals
1979 The Wall
C'mon....this is Parliament and  the Funkadelics. Go George and Bootsy. 
This is the TH tune that got me to take note and delve into the entire TH catalog.  I always enjoyed the Average White Band sound of this track, nice and brassy, bass heavy with a great rhythm.  9 for the track and the entire album really....great stuff!  Long Live RP!!
Ah....1979!!! Would be super cool if it came out this Tuesday.

Fond memories of seeing David Byrne perform this song at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley many years ago, with a fabulous group of three dancers. Just amazing. One of my all-time favorite Talking Heads songs.

Putting this on the stereo rig back when it was new did freak some people out...thus "Fear of Music" was apt. I've always said it was best discovered with proper use of the dreaded lysergic and ample cold beverages...

 
Agreed.  And psilocybin worked too.  So I've been told.

Just rediscovered this piece on the YouTube video and can't stop dancing: David Byrne - Sessions At West 54th (November 15, 1997)



I eternally dig how the frantic snatches of imaginative lingos, fractal strumming, & quantum drumming in this take my mind right to Zen!

Also you've rated 350+ songs "sucko barfo" and only about 20 as godlike, so you obviously just like to whine.

I expect that s/he dropped the mic on the way out.  :-)
Remain in Light by a mere six years paved the way for Paul Simon's Graceland. IMHO, "I Zimbra" represented one of the earliest representations of pan-African lyric and rhythmic sensibilities in pop music.

The Heads at their least commercial, and arguably their best.
This frantic, hyperschizoid little number certainly holds up.
Like a caffeine buzz without the coffee.

May I recommend this bonus track from the Stop Making Sense film:

I have this on vinyl, a staple from my days at art college. Thinking back, the last time I heard it was in 1991, just before the removal man broke the lid and stylus on my deck. That's why it's still in the movers' box. Time to finally go get a new one me thinks {#Drummer}

What do I think?  I think that your comments herein should be enshrined, marveled at and generally enjoyed as pure poetry.
When this came out, it almost seemed TOO FAR OUT, even for Talking Heads...but we knew these guys were like, Casual Gods, right? so, thankfully, we kept playing it until WE GOT THE BLESSED GROOVE THAT SLITHERS AND SQUIRMS SO MIGHTILY WITHIN; DIG IT!

Woah! Had to give this a "7"...which is unusual if it includes anything with David Byrne...but can't deny that this is when Talking Heads were really good. They should have stayed this good.

UGH. I have "The Best of Sessions at West 54th: Volume 1" compilation CD, on which this is the #2 track. I've tried MANY times to develop an appreciation for this song, to no avail. I now skip it on the CD, and just turned off the volume here as fast as I could. All I can figure is they let David Byrne include this track because he was hosting the show at the time. BLECH. Dear God, I wish this were an instrumental... {#Headache}

Absolutely true, and that's NOT a good thing.

Ahhh, this one takes me back to that reawakening of music from the Dark Ages of the last half of the 70's when ANYTHING that wasn't Stix, Boston, Kansas, or Foreigner was most welcome.
