From the almost strained vocals on track one this album I find disappointing, it just shows that bringing two class acts together doesn't always make a class combination.

Ridiculously underrated. Produced by David Byrne at the height of Talking Heads' power, Mesopotamia is the most unique thing The B-52's ever put out. They've had stronger albums as a whole but its still a strong album. In Cake, Cindy and Kate's lyrics make baking a cake way too sensual for words.
