...with a thumbnail sketch...

It's the strongest song set either of these visionaries has released in ages, with floaty pop tunes that draw on gospel, disco, African music and hopeful observations about Where We're At Now. Call it "Life During Wartime 2.0."

I cancelled my 20-something-year subscription to Rolling Stone when they neglected to list DB or TH as one of the 100 greatest artists of all time. They did put freaking mildly-talented people like Madonna on it, though - MADONNA, but not DB?! I was furious. Guess who spoke about how great Madonna is - Britney. Shocking, I know.

That made me especially mad, since RS themselves had said, back in the TH days, that TH was "America's Best Band"

Idjits.

Might consider re-subscribing, but it's not likely.

Pitchfork has ranked "Strange Overtones" as the 11th Best Single of 2008, in their Top 100 Singles of 2008 ranking!

"Arriving more than 20 years after the pair's last collaboration, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today bears little of the sampler magic that haunted the bare corners of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts; instead, the pair relies on their own songcraft to fill the sonic space. And the sweetly sung "Strange Overtones" stands up with the most heartfelt composition in either's oeuvre. Advanced age makes itself apparent in both voices, but Byrne and Eno go at "Strange Overtones" like a hymn, measured and deliberate while the luminous guitar riff chugs along underneath, powering their voices like a motor. The cutest thing about "Strange Overtones" might be the fact that Byrne and Eno sing about becoming lost in the relentless digitization of the world, as if either of them could actually go out of style. --Mike Orme"

Sweet! Could it be that DB and Eno will finally get the recognition they deserve from the public?

One can hope.
