Reviews For Here Lies Love By Artist David Byrne & Fatboy Slim

  • Amazing

    By snickerdoodleiz
    I personally think all of the new Broadway shows are just plain horrible. The music is bland and the plotlines are boring. This however, would make an AMAZING show! The music is great, and an interesting story behind it
  • interesting concept

    By cantthinko1
    This is a tragic Disco Opera. There is nothing else like it, although that does not mean that you'll like it. There is a point in almost every song where they break the beat to further the story.
  • Unexpected

    By Mac184me
    Had no ideal what the album was about, took a chance, glad i did great mix of voices on all cuts
  • Classic David Byrne with vocals of women

    By lymes
    I must say this album was like finding the lost Davinci's (should they ever be discovered). While I only detected him sining on 2 songs, all the other vocals are various female artists for the most part, but singing classic David Byrnes compositions, if you know his work and style. For once I read the PDF album notes, which add another strange layer to this absurd but powerful collection of tunes: a tribute to Imelda Marcos and her story. I mean, Imelda Marcos? Not really knowing much here I went with Mr. Byrnes obsession revolving around her story and now I really appreciate it, much more so than the sordid news bites I didn't even understand in the 70's. If you're a fan of David Byrne and even the Talking Heads you won't be disappointed here.
  • Amazing...

    By HritaL
    This album is nothing like what I expected. It is wonderful and strange and the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Those are always my favorite kinds of album-albums that you are not sure of at first listen, but are compelled to listen to again and again. David Byrne is one of my favorite all time artists and this album doesn't disappoint and has inspired me to do a little research on Imelda Marcos. I love all the female vocalists he brought in and the sassy latin flair that infuses the album.
  • Album of the year!

    By SFSilver
    David Byrne is back in a big way with this triumphant achievement. Epic in scope and in the talented women he's gathered together as vocalists to tell what turns out to be a very compelling story. I'm in awe and would kill to see this staged. Why do women like Imelda Marcos (Evita Peron, even Tammie Faye Baker comes to mind) fascinate us so?
  • fantasy in a bottle of Byrne's...

    By Enzo's World
    Lovely surprise. It's pretty, joyful, imaginatively sill, groovy.
  • No Catherine Wheel

    By BeldenBox
    I've been a huge Talking Heads fan for many years. There's nothing like cranking up "Remain in Light" and driving really fast. The "Catherine Wheel" is also a personal favorite and I was lucky to see it performed by Twyla Tharp back in the day. So, after reading a favorable WSJ write-up on "Here Lies Love" and in the mood for something new from a favorite artist, I rushed here to buy it and I'm sorry to say this album is a great disappointment. According to the WSJ article, this "concept album" was initially intended to be presented as a "theatrical piece" (i.e., a musical) and it sounds like it. While there are a few gems (such as the title track), the songs tend to drone into one another. The desire to present a somewhat obscure historical tale entirely in song overburdens the lyrics -- no memorable "This is not my beautiful house ! " lines here. I could not make sense of the album unless I always kept the historical context in mind, and the whole thing feels a bit like a history class on Cold War politics (especially American Troglodyte and Order 1081). Perhaps, the whole effort would work better on stage (and I wouldn't be surprised to see it on Broadway). The Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" is a much better example of a quasi-concept album that tells a story through individual songs able to stand alone yet remain accessible.
  • A cohesive surprise

    By 808080808
    I'm not a big fan of David Byrne or Fatboy Slim, but I have some respect for them both. So I really had no freakin' idea what to expect. In short: It's really darn good. At first, it sounds like light, summery music but after further listens more depth comes through. Using a collection of famous guest singers is a common M.O. for electronic artists trying to do a crossover album. However, usually it doesn't work for me. The various singers may be fine in their own right, but they are so different that it destroys the cohesiveness of the album. In this case, it works. One reason may be that the singers all have similar sounding voices. They aren't identical by any means, but close enough that it sounds like a very large band making an album - not a compilation of singles. The collaboration between the song writers is cohesive also. That is, you can't tell which tracks are David's and which ones are from Norman. The production is excellent. The album rewards loud volume listening using high quality speakers. The tracks are pretty catchy and after just 2 or 3 listens I had a few songs stuck in my head. My favorite songs are sung by Róisín Murphy, Kate Pierson, Cyndi Lauper and a filipina jazz singer named Charmaine Clamor. There are a couple of tracks that I have deleted out of my playlist, but out of 22 that ain't much.
  • Awesome Album!

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
