Wonderful Band. Still underrated for some reason.

So basically every song is a sick ass banger with eccentric vocals from David Byrne.

This is one of my favourite bands of All Time. Great vibes, upbeat melodies and top-notch production by Brian Eno. However, it's a shame that they didn't manage to maintain their quality streak after releasing 5 classics in a row. The last 3 studio albums released after "Speaking in Tongues" don't match the epicness of their predecessors, which is the only thing that prevents me from giving this band a perfect score.

Sensational debut. Very good second album. Some acceptable stuff from then on but nothing of grate value.

Fantastic band, definitely one of my favorite bands to come from the 70s and 80s. Great original content, with their own unique style placed into each album.
