That was incredible. Byrne's voice reminds me of Danny Elfman or Mark Mothersbaugh. I could listen to this for a long time!

Amazing album, but the first half out-shines the second a lot.

This is a great album, from beginning to end. Every song on here has a great beat, great riffs, or interesting lyrics, or more than of these features. I was never a big fan of the Talking Heads, but this is their best album, a masterpiece, highly listenable. You'll want to play it repeatedly. It's a great album, period, one of the best ever in my humble opinion. Out of more than 1,400 albums I have listened to in their entirety and rated, I have given a score of 100 to only 10 albums. This is one of them.

The talking heads quirky rhythmic step into the 80s is as catchy as can be. The percussion is top class.

The first half is jittery and frantic, and amazing. The second half kinda gets boring repetitive, and slow

I like to imagine this album as waking up in a dark room tied to a chair without knowing how you got there as a weird man in a big suit yells at you about his hands and the properties of facts and shapeshifting faces while awkwardly dancing.
