Great lyrics, but instrumentally not as impressive as Fear of Music and the godly Remain In Light. It's more empty and forgettable for me.

FAV TRACKS: all of them

LEAST FAV TRACK: n/a

9/10

Yet another catchy, fun and colorful album by Talking Heads. This has some of the best lyrics David Byrne has ever sung and some of the best basslines from Tina Weymouth too. I love how they use synthesizers almost entirely throughout the album, it makes it so much more vibrant and bright. There's a bunch of highlights here and overall a brilliant album
