My Life in the Bush of Ghosts - The Sequel

A bit of a simplification, not entirely accurate, but that's how I always viewed this album. Considering "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" virtually invented more musical forms than you can count, was oblique and avant garde (only Laurie Anderson's Mister Heartbreak was a more challenging/rewarding experience for me in those days), I think that's great praise.

Begs in a Friar Snatch

Top to bottom (and that's quite a ways). Really ahead of its time...1981 for christ's sake!

Remain In Light & Bush Of Ghosts fans take note

Byrne is working with many of the same players in the same era on this essential LP. It's a score for a dance piece. As such the sequencing of tracks works exceptionally well together. It's one of those few records that takes a cohesive sonic journey in order from beginning to end. Give a couple of start to finish listens and the narrative of a family in and out of collapse emerges. There are standouts like Eyes Wide Open & Big Business. Repeated listens are rewarded. Now go listen to Jerry Harrison's one hit wonder " Worlds In Collision." That cut, this LP, Bush of Ghosts, & the apex predator Remain In Light are née plus ultra for Byrne, Eno, & their crew. Last of their lean and hungry efforts. All downhill, fat & happy after this. This LP deserves a remastering.
