Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
On his first full-fledged solo album, Byrne indulges his fascination with Latin and South American musical styles, employing a variety of native musicians but mixing up the sounds to suit his own distinctly non-purist vision and singing over the tracks the same kind of witty, oddball lyrics found on Talking Heads albums. When released, the cassette version contained three more tracks than the LP.
