Although far from their best work, "Little Creatures" is still a highly enjoyable album with heart and lot of their signature quirkiness. A few riffs aren't amazing and the undeniably "eighties" vibe hasn't aged that well at certain point, but it's never annoying for long. This album shows above all, that even years after their high point, Talking Heads were still able to create classics like "And She Was" and "Road to Nowhere", apparently effortlessly.

Favorite: And She Was, Road to Nowhere, Television Man, The Lady Don't Mind

Least Favorite: Creatures of Love, Perfect World

Certainly not up to the genius of their first four albums, still, little creatures, is a good Talking Heads album. Road to nowhere, and she was, and, creatures of love, are top TH songs, the rest not bad.

And She Was is a class opener and the whole album is a strong one...this was the first TH album I bought so some may think it commercial but it got me hooked. Downloaded the other albums but will be buying them on vinyl so commercial success I'd say...

A lot of people hate this album because it feels like a sell out, but if you listen the songs are really very good.

The talking heads were still experimenting in david byrne's latter years with the band, here incorporating a country flare working the steel guitar often.
