    Taking advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to say that this must be the place to discuss the Talking Heads. It's a new feeling, but hey...the heat goes on.

    "This Must Be The Place" is one of my top five favorite songs of all time. I love David Byrne so much

    The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads remains one of the best live albums of all time. Don't sleep on it.

    Finally checked these guys out cause of the Blank Check episode on SMS. Not sure I can ever enjoy their studio versions as much as those live ones. Walking downtown with “Slippery People” on full blast in my ears last night was a fucking transcendent experience.

    Doing their discography today. 77 is still their most overlooked album imo. One of their strongest releases. Buildings and Food is a step down, but still great. On Fear of Music now. This is a great one.

    I gotta say, I think Remain in Light is their third best release.
    77
    Fear of Music
    Remain in Light
    Buildings
    Speaking in Tongues

    The horns in Love -> Building on Fire are so gooooood. Total Motown sound

    I've tried getting into this band properly this year. While I don't think I'll ever love them, listening to their whole discography it starts all coming together for me more. They remind me of Modest Mouse, honing their sound for a few increasingly (or at least equally) great records then finishing with their easiest to listen to records, retaining their quirks but with a pop sheen.
    When I got into Modest Mouse I loved Good News and We Were Dead first, then over time their earlier, less poppy albums worked their way to become my favs. I think the same will happen with Talking Heads

    I like all of their albums but Remain in Light and '77 are definitely loveable!

    That's not really a fair seeding for "The Big Country" imo

    Burning Down The House vs Once In A Lifetime in the second round was impossible so I gave up lol

    Flowers vs. Place in the first is insane!

    Band needs a full 64-slot bracket clearly

    I think no matter how I slice it the finals Lifetime vs Punches for me though

    This Must Be The Place takes it for me but Christ, this is tough. If Love -> Building was in any other section it'd be in the final 4, at least.
