Everything That Happens Will Happen Today
Critical Mass

by Barry Walters

Not at all a sequel to the otherworldly 1981 sample-funk landmark My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, the second duo record by the former Talking Heads frontman and his experimental super-producer partner is a thoughtful singer-songwriter exercise, with Byrne's keening whine shorn of its percussive sharpness and propped high atop Eno's plush upholstery. The elegiac opening ballad "Home" comes on like a U2-size, album-closing climax, and for every modestly moody groove, there's a flat-footed folk tune positioned as a major statement.
