DAVID BYRNE & BRIAN ENO: EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS WILL HAPPEN TODAY
Not at all a sequel to the otherworldly 1981 sample-funk landmark My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, the second duo record by the former Talking Heads frontman and his experimental super-producer partner is a thoughtful singer-songwriter exercise, with Byrne's keening whine shorn of its percussive sharpness and propped high atop Eno's plush upholstery. The elegiac opening ballad Home comes on like a U2-size, album-closing climax, and for every modestly moody groove, there's a flat-footed folk tune positioned as a major statement.
