4.0 out of 5 stars Singles rather than the Best, 18 Oct 2004

This review is from: The Best of Talking Heads (Audio CD)
This is an adequate enough compilation if you just want the singles and a few other well known tracks released by Talking Heads. The number of albums released and different styles embraced by the band make this an interesting journey of development but without some of the key album tracks to interlink the different stages it is a little disjointed to listen to.
The extended 'Once in a Lifetime' compilation is a better bet if you can track it down or just buy 'Remain in Light', 'Fear Of Music' and 'Speaking in Tongues' to hear them at their peak!

This album is for the fan. While it does have some of the better known British releases and all the classics you would expect some of them are US only mixes. While you realise the songs are all known you don't quite remember the way they have been arranged. This leads to a fresh perspective on some of the tracks. A definite must for Talking Heads fans. Great!

This review is from: The Best of Talking Heads (Audio CD)
This is a magnificent collection of this unique band's most popular songs. Sure there are omissions, but these tracks are representative of their most accessible music and almost every one is a classic.
The opener, Love Goes To Building On Fire is a powerful song with an unorthodox arrangement and evocative imagery, whilst Psycho Killer is a prime example of David Byrne's innovative vocal style.
The omission of The Big Country is a pity, but their version of Al Green's Take Me To The River from the same album remains fascinating. Another highlight is the cinematic Once In A Lifetime with its multi-layered rhythms and gripping vocals.
Burning Down The House, And She Was and Road To Nowhere were huge hits, the last being very much like a flowing country ballad. And that is what made Talking Heads so special - their brilliant explorations of a wide variety of styles. In the process they extended the musical boundaries of rock and made an innovative contribution to the music of the punk revolution.

What a band. What a CD. My little lad (6 years old) really went through a phase of Talking Heads all the time. It's passed a bit now, but he may come back to them later. The playing of 'Psycho Killer' was frowned upon by his mother for a while, ok... fair enough, but I let it be played because it's such a quality tune. And that trumps any song title.

The Talking Heads were a breakthrough band that have had a big influence on modern music. Often described as Punk-I find it to be a mixture of all genres.

I am not a massive talking heads fan but these best of tracks allow me to dip into some unknown tracks as well as some old favourites.
