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

From DaVGManiac 07/05/2018 12:51
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.

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.
