Fear of Music, the third studio album by Talking Heads, was recorded at New York
City from April to May 1979 and was produced by the group along with Brian Eno.
Fear of Music reached #21 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S. and peaked at number
33 on the UK Albums Chart. The album produced three singles "Life During
Wartime", "I Zimbra", and "Cities".
The album is often considered one of the best Talking Heads releases featuring
the unconventional rhythms and frontman David Byrne's performances.
"Among the most adventuresome bands in rock history, the Talking Heads drew
from funk, minimalism, and African and Brazilian music in promulgating a new
sound that was both visionary and visceral. They were invariably challenging and
inventive, using infectious rhythms as a form of sorcery to introduce their
ever-expanding audience to exotic influences from abroad that they might
otherwise have never heard. In so doing, they helped pave the way – along with
the likes of Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno – for the “world music” phenomenon of
the Eighties and beyond. They also created a body of highly original work,
crowned by such albums as Fear of Music and Remain in Light, that didn’t so much
appropriate its sources as transmute them into something that felt startlingly
new and improbably accessible." –Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
