"Little Creatures" was already a departure from the afrofunk-infused polyrhythms of "Fear Of Music", "Remain In Light" and "Speaking In Tongues", not to mention the side-projects of Tom Tom Club and Byrne/Eno. And as much as the characteristic sound of Talking Heads is present on "True Stories" (some of it leans back on "More Songs About Buildings And Food"), their sliding down towards country-rock music started to worry, the altogether impression being that of a letdown. At best, this could have been a solo effort by David Byrne (impersonating Tom Petty). And considering the album was a derivation of the soundtrack to David Byrne's film of the same name, the assumption of a solo album isn't entirely out of place. But in the context of a band that once made "Drugs", "The Overload" and "Listening Wind" to name a few, "True Stories" remains an anomaly.

From the good side though - "Love For Sale" is a perfect song Pixies never came up with. The album continues as energetically with "Puzzlin' Evidence", another great tour-de-force number, with the album's highlight captured in side A's closing number, "Papa Legba" - echoing the darker edges from Talking Heads' earlier work. "Hey Now" and "Wild Wild Life" ride the enjoyable, carefree melody wave, but these set the tone for the most part of the record, reducing it down to a tired terrace-version of a superbly ecstatic band.

"Radio Head" - the title made super-famous by Thom Yorke's experimental rock group - is so disappointingly mediocre. "People Like Us" and "Radio Operator" sadly stay safe with the same formula. The closing number comes in the shape of a ballad - "City Of Dreams" is an interesting diversion towards something Bowie forgot he recorded and Talking Heads discoveried it to their advantage. In this song there's also a slight trace of "Everyday Is Like Sunday", still a good two years before Morrissey actually went solo.

One of the first "rock" CD available (and that one was made in Japan)
