Having said that, each one is unique and special in it's own way, it all depends on what mood you're in at the time. But what is so great about all of them is that they not only give great listening pleasure, but also demand something more from the listener, thought, hence the term, used so befittingly with this band, "smart music." Naked is at the top of this list. Possibly the smartest TH album ever, its sophisticated, rich and flavored sounds only enhance the sheer wit and intensity that the music posseses, which I must confess, makes it one of my most listenable albums.
Its title is exactly what the music represents, purity. It is stripped down to just the purest forms of how music is made. No fancy electronic sound effects or unorganic sounds. This message of returning back to nature is clear in all the songs lyrics. Just amazing to see how they do it, but they do. "Bill, living in the forrest," "there was a factory, now there are mountains and rivers," when we ride the ferris wheel we're little childen again," "some day we'll live on Venus, and men will walk on mars, but we will still be monkeys down deep inside." This strange and bizzaro poetry is the best you're gonna get.
And anyone who doesn't like it because it doesn't have the same angular more jagged stylings of eariler albums are insane. Just listen to the goddam thing.Read more ›
It is my favorite Talking Heads CD by far. The songs are beautifully constructed and contain excellent lyrics. I especially enjoy listening to "(Nothing but) Flowers" on high-end audiophile equipment.
This album was the last Talking Heads album and freed David Byrne to persue a solo career.

One of the best Talking Heads records in their catalog. Too bad they broke up afterward.Published 1 month ago by Tony Minzenberger
Lots of production effort, with minimal results. Kind of a dead, though the band seemed to be kind of done at this point anyway.Published 3 months ago by A. J. Nowaczyk
Innovation remained the one constant through all of Talking Heads' albums. Even those aimed more at wider audiences arguably enhanced the popular music genre. Read morePublished 5 months ago by ewomack
this was absolutely sad and a depressing way for yet another legend to wrap it up... I'd have rather they just called it a day after True Stories if DB was that unhappy, but this?? Read morePublished 5 months ago by Matt

I recently rediscovered this album after having owned the cassette in 1988. Remastered, and I ripped it to WAV files. The songs are beautifully complex. Read morePublished 18 months ago by BigBri
