Talking Heads had produced two studio albums so far, these ones being 'Talking Heads: 77' and 'More Songs About Buildings and Food'.

"This is what we couldn't quite do for the Space Oddity album - there was no David Bowie sound yet, and so we were concentrating on that very earnestly for that second album.

Hey Mate,
I am currently making a list compacted with AOTY user' top 10 worst albums and would love for you to contribute to that. The information if you decide to share will be used to create "The Average AOTY Users worst album" consisting of 50 albums. If you feel comfortable contributing please mention your top 10 worst albums in order from 1 being the worst and 10 being the 10th worst. It would also be highly appreciated if you are ok to give a few words why as well :)

Thank You So Much Have A Good Day!
