Brian Eno–David Byrne collaboration My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts was created before Eno’s work with Byrne on the Talking Heads’ Remain in Light. The sampling was considered innovative for its time.
I am not sure how to rank this album. I find that it is creative and entertaining, but I doubt I would listen to it often. It is more of a mood album or something you would use for a film.
I think “Regiment“, “The Jezebel Spirit“, “Qu’ran” (which was removed because of Islam), “Very, Very Hungry” (which replaced “Qu’ran” and reminds me The Smiths’ How Soon Is Now?), and “A Secret Life” are the best songs, especially out of context with the album.
I really like this album as a bizarre journey through looping and sampling world of the cult. Eno and Byrne should think of doing more collaborations. I give it a perfect score for its creativeness. 10/10.
