A downright interesting and amazing funky cd. Jerry Harrison is really 'on point' on Casual Gods (1988).
Radio hits were 'Rev It Up' & 'Man With A Gun'

Album highlights for me include:

Let It Come Down
Cherokee Chief
A Perfect Lie
Are you Running?
We're Always Talking

This cd is so good I would rate it up there with the Talking Heads best albums!

"Amazon doesn't seem to have the track listing:

1. Rev it up

2. Song of angels

3. Man with a gun

4. Let it come down

5. Cherokee chief

6. A perfect lie

7. Are you running?

8. Breakdown in the passing lane

9. A.K.A. Love

10. We're always talking

11. Bobby

12. Bobby (extended mix)

I'm not sure if all versions have track 12. Sire Records, 1987."
Glad I tracked it down.

"I began my search for "Casual Gods" when I heard the song "Man With A Gun" at the end of the movie "Two Moon Junction". I had that track in my head for weeks before I finally got this album in the mail, and I think the song is hypnotic, sexy, excellent, and worth the purchase alone. "Rev It Up" is another great track, and I believe was a single. A few of these songs have a subtle Talking Heads vibe, especially during the "keyboard solos", but I suppose that's unavoidable since he was in that band. In the track "We're Always Talking" I even hear some "Roxy Music" influence. Others worth a mention are "Song Of Angels" and "Let It Come Down". I'd say the first half of the album is a bit stronger overall. It's too bad all his stuff is out of print since it's quite good. Worth getting like I said, whether you're a fan of Talking Heads, the late 80's, or just good tunes."
