One of the greatest albums of all time!

I like the Talking Heads. I am not a huge fan. However, with the addition of Bernie Worrell on the keyboards...they are transformed into a Funk Wizard with powers equal to that of the evil Sauron himself. Be prepared to be blown away.

Great Album!

I just recently discovered Talking Heads and they are still revolutionary to this day. What other band of white people can make such funky music. Burning Down the House, and This Must Be the Place are great songs. While Girlfriend Is Better is my favorite of theirs, I would recomend buying the Best Of cd and then buying the albums that have your favorite songs on them.

Talking Heads made their signature artistic statement with Remain In Light, but this is probably their masterpiece. If you want an album of funk and fun and driving, thick grooves, it doesn't get much better than Speaking in Tongues. Period.
