    A gorgeous gift

    I have heard a lot of people complain about this boxset for 3 reasons - the price, the way in which it's presented, and the material within. Honestly though... aren't those the top 3 things to complain about when discussing a piece of art? I work at a music and book store, and even with my discount, the price tag was daunting. However, this box set caught my eye even before I knew it was a Talking Heads set. Perched above all the other CDs, the size of the set, and the lovely art work that was painted across it stood out to me. Once I read that it was from the Talking Heads, I knew I wanted it (more for my mother than myself). Yes, the artwork is strange, and yes, it is out there - but aren't the Talking Heads? Isn't David Byrne? Both the band and this boxset are weird and wonderful, in the most perfect ways possible. As for the complaints about this box set having basically every track previously released..... hello? It's a box set. Part of a box set is containing all the previously released tracks of said artist, along with extra material. I love the DVD that comes with the 3 CDs, as well as the in-box booklet, complete with photos, essays, and memorable pieces of art. The "box" alone that it comes in is worth it for me. This is not a box set for the music freak who already owns every Talking Heads album, song, and concert DVD, just so that they can say "Hey, I own every Talking Heads song EVER." This box set is for the person who loves the Talking Heads, and who can say with great confidence that the Talking Heads and their music were a large part of their lives. I grew up listening to Talking Heads - I'm now 19, and this box set means a lot to me. If you, or someone you know, would treasure this for what it is, then it would make a tremendous gift.
