TK #62: David Byrne & Brian Eno – Everything That Happens Will Happen Today (2008)

After a 25-year hiatus from making a string of classic albums together, this could have been a disaster. Instead, it was a revelation, two old masters bringing the best out of each other again, and doing it in entirely new ways. Their previous collaborations (under their own names and with Talking Heads), were dark, brooding and funky. But here, it’s mostly lush and light and open. Comeback album of the decade.
