This is probably the album where the Talking Heads took their sound more into a poppy (without being wimpy, eh) direction. It's a worthy addition to your collection but it's not really a dance record overall.

"Road to Nowhere" sort of sums up both the band's sound and its direction at this time. They seemed ready to go somewhere with their sound and although not super commercial it was a far cry from "Psycho Killer" or "The Big Country."

I adore Remain In Light, enjoy Speaking In Tongues, love Psycho Killer. But LITTLE CREATURES is my favourite Heads album. I know many Heads' fans don't, because LC doesn't sound like anything else they ever did. It's melodic, bouncy, bright and optimistic. Little Creatures is like the Velvets' LOADED, a pop record made by an avant-rock band.
Reportedly, David Byrne was in love (with Adelle Lutz) when he composed these tunes. That's evident from the get-go. And She Was kicks off the album on a note of joy and energy, not dark brooding like Burning Down The House. From there, the record detours into kids & family (Creatures of Love, Stay Up Late) and more love (the wonderful The Lady Don't Mind).
The hooks are catchy and the harmonies are delicious. Further, every song moves. You can dance to this. There's no filler. The sequencing is smart -- the record is assembled like one unified piece.
LITTLE CREATURES isn't everyone's cup of tea, but who says a band has to sound the same on every album?

I can't imagine why other TH fans don't love this album as much as I do. From the cover by Rev. Howard Finster to the classic "Walk It Down," the "Little Creatures" album is everything it should be. Irony lives.

I want to defend this album. In contrast to many of the other reviewers, I beleive that this album marked a positive turning point. I don't dance, so I don't like dance music. I'm not an artist, so I really don't appreciate "quirky" and avant garde. I guess some would call me a "casual music" lover. I love the melody, hooks, energy, and lyrics on this album. I loved Talking Heads' first two albums, but then they lost me until this release. Little Creatures marks a change in direction for Byrne that continued, while evolving, into his solo albums. This release, True Stories, and all of Byrne's solo releases are among my favorite albums in my collection. If you prefer John Lenon over Parliament, I believe you'll prefer this album over Remain In Light.

A long-time favourite of mine, "Little Creatures" is, and probably will remain, for me the finest slice of pure pop ever made. Though many would criticise the Talking Heads for doing away with much of the experimentation evident on their previous three studio albums ("Fear Of Music", "Remain In Light" and "Speaking In Tongues"), this stripping back allowed David Byrne's unque lyrical wit and great intelligence to come to the fore. Never before or since has pure pop been delivered with such hyperintelligent lyrics and sheer directness.
In addition, the sound quality was a big improvement on previous Talking Heads CDs - especially with "Speaking In Tongues", digital remastering of those is long overdue.
The opener "And She Was", a brilliantly-written tale of a woman who lost her way through drug problems, set the tone - reducing most of the instrumentation of "Stop Making Sense", Byrne was able to produce accessible music that always surprises the listener - like almost all great musicians. The gentle "Give Me Back My Name" and "Creatures Of Love" show David Byrne examining the paradoxes of life and human existence, and always questioning what most people find seemingly obvious ("Doctor, doctor, tell me what I am" being typical). "Lady Don't Mind" was a wonderful romantic tale in which Byrne always surprises the listener with his inability to describe a lover.
"Perfect World" and "Stay Up Late" moved a little toward the funky rhythms of previos albums, and Byrne was effortless once more in his tales of everyday family life, especially on the latter song, which was and remains the most wonderful description of a young child ever committed to disc.

This album went platinum in 1985 and it's easy to see why. Talking Heads scored four radio hits with this album ("Stay Up Late", "And She Was", "Road to Nowhere", "The Lady Don't Mind") All of these songs are worth hearing and are Talking Heads landmarks. (Oddly enough, "The Lady Don't Mind" is not included on Sand in the Vaseline) This album has other charms beyond that as well. If you're a fan, it's a must-have. If you're more casual, this is still a pretty safe buy, but you might want to try and give it a listen first.

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER on Aug. 28 2002
Format: Audio CD
Little Creatures is one of my all-time favorite CDs. I know a lot of Talking Heads fans consider this album a little too pop-oriented, but I love every song on here. This is particularly good music to sing along with, yet it still has plenty of quintessential David Byrne vocal sounds to distinguish it from non-Talking Heads music. I still hear And She Was on the radio from time to time, proving its longevity as a quirky, fun track, but for some unexplainable reason, nobody ever seems to play Road to Nowhere anymore. That was really the song that made me a TH fan, and I'll never forget the video with David Byrne running nonstop in the corner the whole time. Stay Up Late is another cool song that got some air play in its day; it's not a song you would want your babysitter to listen to while she is at your house, but it's just a typically fun, unique Talking Heads song.
All of the remaining songs are almost as good as the single releases. Give Me Back My Name, The Lady Don't Mind, Perfect World, and Walk It Down aren't spectacular, but they are quite enjoyable. I especially love the chorus of The Lady Don't Mind, and the last verse of Perfect World features vintage David Byrne vocals. Television Man comes closest to the earlier, more traditionally untraditional Talking Heads sound, and it features a great stretch of David Byrne vocal gymnastics. As enjoyable as all of these songs are, though, none compare to the song Little Creatures. It has a great flow to it, with interesting lyrics, and it shows how talented a singer David Byrne really is. The entire album has a fullness and flow that most albums just do not have; I never skip any of the tracks when I play this CD.
