Polyrock were perceived by some as Philip Glass' response to Talking Heads, which isn't entirely untrue but does reduce the people actually making the music into mere stage players. Where the Heads were a highly stylized outfit, Polyrock seemed like more of a proletarian endeavor, a sextet of same-looking heads. Their debut album showed the influence of Glass in the tight, keyboard-dominated patterns and the CBGB's scene in its short, angst-ridden songs. Changing Hearts brought the guitar up in the mix and sounded more like Wall of Voodoo without the Tex-Mex angle. They disbanded soon after, leaving behind two respectable albums of alternative rock that period fans will appreciate.
