bradm Posted January 10, 2006 Report Share Posted January 10, 2006 What, if any, album made you say, "Oh, now I get it!" I'm talking about musicians/artists you've known of for a long time, but never really "got" (or "got into") that much, until you listen to one record, and bam! you suddenly appreciate the artist the way others do.For me, it's Talking Heads. I've known of them (from back to the New Wave days in the early '80s), but, even after getting and listening to "Stop Making Sense", they never really did it for me. Over Christmas, though, I acquired the re-issue of "The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads" (which is greatly expanded from the original LP release; each of the two CDs is almost exactly 1h20m), and wow, I now understand it all. I'm amazed at how much a lot of the live Phish I've heard sounds like (or comes close to) this, and how close it gets to flat-out jammy stuff (it never gets there, but I could easily see jams taking off from what the band is doing).What are yours?Aloha,Brad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
