    Not The Best Live Talking Heads

    That title goes to This Band Is Called Talking Heads. By the time they recorded this set, Byrne and Co. were superstars and, after this album, it was mostly downhill. Unlike most bands, they saw the writing on the wall and hung it up. I don't know why this isn't as compelling as the earlier stuff. I think they miss Adrian Belew's guitar. Don't get me wrong, this is still very good. I just wonder if, after all the first generation fans are gone, if the group's music will be more than a 80s new wave period curiosity.

    Talking Heads, greatest band ever!

    This CD rocks!! If you love Talking Heads, or music in general, get this CD. If you love this CD, get the DVD. It's the coolest thing ever! You'll want to watch it every day! Take my word for it!

    Something Missing

    Having purchased the original LP (that's vinyl for you youngsters), video cassette, and CD, I was hoping SMS Special Edition would include all songs performed in the movie. However, SMS Special Edition omits Cities and the Big Business/I Zimbra tracks. Cities and I Zimbra are underrated tunes from ''Fear of Music''. Big Business is from David Byrne's music for ''Catherine Wheel'', which also supplied the tune What a Day That Was. I love David Byrne and Talking Heads and and agree with all that this is the ultimate concert ever recorded. Enjoy

    Definitive Heads

    I am fifty years old and this album still rings true as one of the best performances in the rock genre. Sure wish the video was still available...alas, I lost my copy to a borrower.
