"The Catherine Wheel" will always be one of my favorite albums. Back in the mid 80's, when my college friend and I needed to decide on some good stereo music late at night, we'd look at each other, say "It!", and play "The Catherine Wheel." This collection of Talking-Heads-ish pieces will characterize your internal and external environment in the period during which you familiarize yourself with it. Hearing it years later will evoke many of the feelings and mental images that you experienced while listening to it. Usually, it takes at least whole year's worth of pop radio to achive this effect in me, but David Byrne did it in one CD. I've secretly been wishing that David Byrne would one day return temporarily to this style of his music: layered acoustic percussion and rhythm elements, freaky electric, not necessarily electronic, sounds and samples, and sparse melodies held together by Byrne's yelling-singing voice.
