"I really wish I could time travel back to NYC in 1977, if only for a weekend, and mainly to see the Talking Heads at CBGB's. Until they give me a time machine, this piece of wax is the next best thing. Completely ahead of it's time and still essential listening, the Talking Heads debut is an all-time great from one of New York's greatest bands. As a diehard and lifelong New Yorker, I take extra pride in Talking Heads and invite you to do the same, no better place to start than the beginning."

Favorite Tracks: Psycho Killer, New Feeling

- _Ian Edery (popmarket)

TALKING HEADS: 77 is the auspicious debut album from what was the most highly touted new wave band to ever emerge from New York's CBGB's scene and it immediately set them apart from their counterparts in both sound and scope. Both unique and infectious, David Byrne's high, yelping tenor serves as the perfect complement to the band's tightly-wound yet kinetic rhythms here, making for a tuneful collection of songs highlighted by the twisted anthem "Psycho Killer" and the joyous "Pulled Up."
