Reviews

  • Not cohesive music..

    Maybe I’m stuck on his ‘Look Into the Eyeball’ record with mellifluous strings and soothing melodies, not to mention songs that had some good hooks. However, American Utopia fails in those aspects. I respect DB for always evolving, but it’s ok to stick with what works sometimes.

    I really tried to give this album a chance and after several listens I've concluded that it's the sound of a genius way past his prime propped up by fabulous musicians. The lyrics are often quirky just for the sake of being quirky and at times come off as the ramblings of a sixth grader. The last 3 songs are worthwhile especially Everybody's Coming to My House while the rest is a frustrating, difficult listen.
  • Classic Byrne

    What a grower-I wasn't sure what to think After a few listens, but after sitting down and listen with lyrics in hand, American Utopia is awesome. The melodies, the imagery, the slow burn songs (Bullet, This Is That), wow, what an album. Everyday Is A Miracle is just unbelievable Byrne songwriting. It's Not Dark Up Here is an incredible sing.
  • So disappointed.

    I may never pre order an album again. This was just painful. I really hoped to hear some of his vocals from the Talking Heads but they just weren''t there.
  • Great!

    I love David’s music. This album is proof of his changing sound. He can go from one sound to another and while it may not be everyone’s taste, I think it’s great.
  • Pretty great album

    I’ll admit, after hearing the first two songs that were released, my expectations for this album were in a different place initially. During my first listen, a few of the songs got me to come back for a second listen and I’m glad I did. With the exception of a song or two, this is a very solid album. Some of the moves he made are difficult to digest at first and feel out of place but they really fall into place after an extra listen or two, like Every Day is a Miracle and I Dance Like This (still kind of iffy). The only real track I feel is weak is Dog’s Mind. Standouts: Everybody’s Coming to My House, This is That, Every Day is a Miracle, and Gasoline and Dirty Sheets.

    Nice interview with David on today's (March 13) The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Explains some of his thinking behind his new album.

    … creating a masterpiece while still having a long time to go. It happened to Dylan. For Byrne, it was Speaking In Tongues.

    I saw David on this tour in Wilkes Barre, PA.... paid a price for the tickets just to be able to say I saw him live. Expected to be let down by a show that was just to, “out there” for me. Was completely blown away by the art of his performance. The band was tight visually and musically. It was performance art and I was incredibly moved by the show. Seeing it made all the difference. I think that’s what’s missing from those that just listened to the release. David and company’s presentation takes it to another level. A show I won’t soon forget. Genius. I consider myself blessed to have been witness.
