David Byrne: David Byrne (1994)

By Scott Goldfine

Former Talking Heads guru David Byrne has yielded his first straight-ahead rock album since splitting from the fame alternative band in the late 1980s. This self-titled effort finds the nasal, whining singer-songwriter delving inward with songs that dwell on love, death and other human conditions.

It’s not quite as much fun as a Heads release, but certainly solid enough to warrant a listen.
