"Mister Heartbreak" is the second album by avant-garde artist, singer and composer Laurie Anderson, released in 1984. "Mister Heartbreak" features a number of stunning luminaries on the cutting edge of popular music at the time. Striking guitar work by King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew permeates this disc, notably on "Sharkey's Day", punchy and angular. The production and bass work from Bill Laswell is superb. Peter Gabriel, at the time still coming off the buzz of his departure from Genesis, is featured in a duet with Anderson on "Excellent Birds." There is a heavy reliance on early-'80s synthesizers which would normally be very off-putting, but here they are executed well. Nowhere does the music slip into irreparable '80s cliché; it is still an entertaining listen. Lyrics are typical of Anderson' work, complex, literate, provocative, difficult to fully comprehend. Haunting "Gravity's Angel" borrows imagery from Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow. Spoken word delivery on "Sharkey's Night" is given by the legendary William S. Burroughs. This is a very satisfying listen and a great intro for those unfamiliar with Anderson's work. HERE
