On St Arkansas, sticking somewhat to the geographical theme of ’98’s ”Pennsylvania,” David Thomas applies his solemn bleat to ”a car full of dreams” — a journey across a blasted landscape of arid loneliness, interrupted by moments of surreal humor. The best of the batch is ”Slow Walking Daddy,” a better Talking Heads song than anything Talking Heads did after their debut, yet an utterly typical piece of witty Ubu absurdity.
