Following a brief brush with country music, T-Bone Burnett 's seventh solo release, The Talking Animalscontinues the studio rock he began in with Proof Through the Night. Burnett once again starts with basic rock, pop, and folk roots, which he wastes no time in subverting, Why Dont You Kill Yourself - The Only Ones - Live In London assorted twists along the way.
Along with co-producer and guitarist David Rhodeshe colors a foundation of steady rhythms driven by drummer Mickey Curry and bassist Tony Levin with affected and atmospheric guitars, as well as Mitchell Froom 's various keyboards. Here he sheds the bounds of the standard pop song format to create a piece that seems to have sprung from a Weill - Brecht musical.
Lyrically, The Talking Animalslike his best work, can be scathing, searching, and surreal. Burnett explores uncertainty, longing, fear, lust, fantasy, greed, and eventually justice and mercy in his quest for "The Wild Truth" the title of one of the album's best tracks. Often criticized for preaching, Burnett seems to ask as much of himself as he does of the cast of characters here, even allowing one of them to denounce him in the wonderful final cut, "The Strange Case of Frank Cash and the Morning Paper" although it's T-Bone Burnett You Could Look It Up - T Bone Burnett* - The Talking Animals gets the last word.
