Uh-Oh was only David Byrne's second pop-oriented solo album and his first to be released after the formal end of Talking Heads. Though informed by his various investigations into world music, the album was a natural successor to the Talking Heads records, relying on involved percussion tracks topped by Byrne's quirky singing and lyrics. By this point, disaffected fans may have grown accustomed to the idea that a David Byrne solo album could contain anything from an extended flirtation with Latin styles (Rei Momo) to an eclectic instrumental score (The Forest), to name only his most recent solo projects. Maybe Byrne and his record label failed to get out the message that he was back to making Heads-style pop/rock (he didn't organize a tour until the album had come and gone on the charts), but Uh-Oh never reached its potential audience. Talking Heads fans should give it a listen.
Hands-down the saddest, angriest, and most utterly beautiful songs ever beat from a broken heart.
This is easily the most overlooked album by DB fans and Talking Heads fans alike. I just put it on again and 20 years later it delivers a true blend of the obscure, tantalizing lyrics and infectious grooves that we've come to love and expect from DB. It does not disappoint.
