Editors’ Notes Talking Heads’ second album is the sound of wires pulled taut, of nerves fraying, of matches singeing fingertips. Sharpening 77’s punk-funk edge, with punched-up production courtesy Brian Eno, “With Our Love” pairs slashing guitars with David Byrne’s customary yelp; the wry “Found a Job” wraps cultural critique in positive affirmations and no-nonsense dance-floor energy. A cover of Al Green’s “Take Me to the River” is a soulful revelation: slow, slinky, and a chance for Byrne to show off his deeply original voice.
