Die Lektüre dieses Buch ist durch das leichtverständliche Englisch "kein Problem".
Der Text über dieses zeitlose Meiserwerk enthält viele Informationen zum Zeitgschehen und der Entstehungsgeschichte des Albums. Vieles wird auch aus einem persönlichen Blickwinkels des Autors dargestellt.
Die Bücher aus der Reihe zu den Alben "Low" von "David Bowie", "Another Green World" von "Brian Eno" und
"20 Jazz Funk Greats" von "Throbbing Gristle" haben mir etwas besser gefallen.
Die aufgeführten Alben ansich stellen natürlich alle eine "Extraklasse" dar.

Truly terrible 23. Oktober 2012
Von agnostic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I hate to be critical of this author, because I consider him to be one of our greatest working novelists. Fortress of Solitude is probably my favorite novel of the past 20 years, at least. But he should not write music criticism. There are hardly any good ideas in this book, and it is groan-inducingly bad in many places. I would never have finished it if it weren't so short. It is almost entirely devoid of true inspiration or insight. The main theme of the book is this: This album really, really blew my mind when I was a precocious teenager in the greatest city in the whole world! Variations on this theme are interspersed with dull, wooden attempts at snappy but probing exegesis. You can feel him counting the words to meet his quota.

I'm sorry to pan this, but I consider it a public service. Upped a star because of how much I respect Lethem's fiction and other brilliant essays. I can't hang with this man intellectually, but I also can't hang with this book.

Unintelligible gibberish, but that's what he was aiming for 31. August 2012
Von B. McGowan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Perhaps I've been out of the loop, but the question I have reading Jonathan Lethem's "Talking Heads Fear Of Music" is when did intentional Attention Deficit Disorder become celebrated with prose in popular culture? Maybe it begins with this book. I have tried repeatedly to plough through the author's series of ramblings on The Talking Heads "Fear Of Music," and each time, I lasted about three pages before calling it quits. It's not a question of my inability to scavenge through a torrent of art history debris. I've been confronted with dada, surrealism, shamanism, post WW I Lost Generation, Post WWII Eisenhowerism/John Cage(ism) and so on for many years now.
The only cohesion on offer in this zippy little book is a continual reference to the author's pre- teenage years when he first heard the album. He refers to this as, "the boy in the room," era of his development. It was nifty the first couple of times he used the term, and then it wore out its welcome as a structural point in his meta essay. And honestly, we don't know very much about this boy in the room. Did he also play with G.I. Joe? Why was this album his only friend, and possibly a substitute for something lacking? He might have explored that a little. He mentions having a college girlfriend, and sitting on a mattress on the floor in a student's apartment with this friend, listening to Al Green, and attempting to explain why Al Green is a luminary, not only in R and B circles, but in the wider American popular culture during the Vietnam years. I enjoyed reading about his college years, and I wanted to hear more, but that sort of content was meager.
The only thing I seem to be getting from this romp through experimentalism, and I'm not sure if I'll try again to pick it up to make sense of it (Oh, I get it, Stop Making Sense! Hey, that's neat!), is that Jonathan Lethem is too profoundly caught up in his attachment to the Talking Heads to offer anything like meaningful (structured) criticism. I mean, talk about an unabashed Band Crush. It's embarrassing. It's cringe worthy. And it's schmalzy the way he injects Talking Head song titles in a cutesy display of hipster banter. This is real geek territory being broached. I knew some folks like this in college, and while I was kind to them, I pitied them. Injecting pop music content into a conversation never impressed me as being all that witty. Pop music is in some respects an enforced mantra through endless rotation on FM radio and MTV. It's not all that clever to allow monosyllable audio packets to spill out of one's mouth during conversation. It's more like a case of severe social conditioning on display. Meaningful, original communication is replaced by throw away pop lines, "here we are now, entertain us." (That actually got a roar of laughter when an audience member in a suburban theater shouted it out at the beginning of a film in autumn 1991.)
The only question I'm left with is: Is the author attempting to duplicate the album's intense rhythmical and lyrical content by sounding angst ridden, paranoid, jittery, and all things David Byrne in the late 70's and early 80's when Byrne was deep into Bolivian marching powder? When Byrne himself suspects that he was suffering from Asberger's Syndrom? Is he helping us disrupt our sense of order in that Arthur Rimbaud/Jim Morrison tradition by presenting a non-linear essay that you the reader will struggle with, and then receive a profound insight much like a toy at the bottom of a kiddy cereal box? You got me. Charlie Brown got his rock after trick or treating. After reading thirty pages of Lethem's tome, all I got was annoyed.

An illuminating addition to Lethem's oeuvre 31. Mai 2012
Von Cliff Milledge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you like Talking Heads (and come on, who doesn't?), and if you like Jonathan Lethem... or maybe a better way to phrase that: if you are interested in the way that Lethem's brain works, with the tangential side comments, brilliantly multifaceted paranoid obsessions and intertextual references, and finally, if you are fascinated by downtown New York in the late 70s, then it doesn't really get any better than this, does it? Lethem doesn't live in New York anymore, but it's obvious that New York has left a deep impression on the wiring of his brain, and he finds a sympathetic open circuit to plug into in this exploration of Fear of Music.

If you want to know the specific microphones Eno used to record the album, or what sorts of things the band members were fighting about when the album was produced, this may not be the 33 1/3 you are looking for. I actually love that sort of thing too, but this book is about more than that. The book covers Talking Heads, but it also covers Jonathan Lethem...and there are shades of Lionel Essrog and Perkus Tooth thrown in for good measure. It's a privilege to watch this guy's mind at work, and it's also a pretty wild ride.

Fear Not. Read, recall and realize. 4. Mai 2012
Von P. Ambrose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Quick and simple, Jonathan Lethem has written a majestic tribute to one of rock music's turning point masterpieces. If you are a Talking Heads fan of any degree, you must read this. Don't brush your teeth or cut your hair, just add to cart.
Beautifully written from without a doubt an adoring fan. Puts the T-Heads into a great perspective. Thank You, Jonathan. The Heads have never been heralded as the geniuses they were. Pure aural art. (And visual when you have the vinyl editions of course!)

Can I play this one at 45RPM? 29. Juni 2012
Von Mark Bowes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
One of the worst in the series. No insight into the making of the music. Simply the author's masturbatory ramblings and self-satisfying hyperbole. It would have been nice to include a few quotes from the band on the actual making of the record. Skip this one altogether. A total waste of a read.
