An interesting and funky album. A very cohesive album tied together by the band's unity and a general aesthetic of absurdity. The songwriting is exceptionally creative and the music can be held to the same standard for most of the album. The lyrics can get a little distracting at times and the instrumentation is a little lacking at points. My favorite songs are "Who Is It?" and "The Book I Read".

A few legitimate standouts, but more a dry run for great things to come.

Talking Heads:77 BEA Ranked 501 at time of writing January 2017.

I listened to this album twice and its ok but apart from Psycho Killer it lacks several killer tracks the great albums have . The Deluxe Version has 5 extra tracks which are pretty good including an alternate ( and wonderful)Psycho Killer version with different instrumentation and some fresh lyrics.

On a side note in 1979 The Fools released a Psycho Killer parody called "Psycho Chicken" & as a lad I actually owned the 7'inch single of "Psycho Chicken " (I don't remember buying it , but I had it ) . Any how at the time I had no idea it was a Talking Heads parody & thought it was a totally cool / funny track ! . It was yeeeeeeaaaars later I discovered the truth . LOL my 1st Talking Heads experience Psycho Chicken .
