5.0 out of 5 stars A near perfect album, 29 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Iinitially discovered Talking Heads in the late 80's with Stop Making Sense and the worked back through their catalogue.
Talking Heads do tend to attract all kinds of in depth (almost pretencious) comment and they certainly do have an incredible amount of depth to them, however never forget the pure and near perfect pop. Check out "Found a Job" and "Thank You For Sending Me an Angel." This is beautiful jangley guitar stuff. It makes you want to play air guitar, but without he Axe Master stance. And with a few qualifications.
Can't get enough.

This review is from: More Songs About Buildings and Food [CD + DVDA] (Audio CD)
Excellent Remaster! Everything you loved in the old one, but more-so!
Deeper Bass, more three dimensional sound, less flat. Still snappy and awesome.
Awesome for the kids too… no "bad words"

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, 27 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Talking Heads are one of the best bands of all time in my opinion. To some their music may sound idiosyncratic but it grows on you with each listening and definitely won't bore you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great, 10 April 2013

Timeless undiscovered (by me) classic. Great for in the car or, surprisingly, for exercising; very steady beat. Will this do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Groove and brains, 1 May 2001
By A Customer
This is Talking Heads' second album, and I think it is one of their best.
It has everything that Talking Heads were good at - infectious rhythms, David Byrne's unique nervy vocals, and fantastic tunes. It moves up a gear from the previous year's sparser-sounding Talking Heads 77 by bringing keyboards more to the fore. Presumably, this had something to do with Brian Eno being drafted in as producer.
As well as the twitchy, can't-sit-still feel that was integral to the Heads' live performances, the album also contains the fantastic, mellow 'The Big Country' and a fabulous, rich cover version of 'Take Me To The River'.
The lyrics throughout the album are typical of Talking Heads at their best. They are quirky, razor-sharp and off-the-wall.
To sum up, a short, sharp breath of fresh air, which helped to relegate bloated, corporate 'meaningful' rock to the dustbin at the end of the 70s. What a shame it didn't stay there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part two of the journey, 25 Jan 2007
It's your duty as music lovers to buy this album (and 77, Fear of Music, and Remain in Light). They represent the greatest works of one of popular music's innovative and unique bands ever. It's not just a few silly diehard fans who've given this 5 stars. Its people who really appreciate what David Byrne and the band did in the late seventies. "As the heart finds a good thing, the feeling is multiplied" ahhh! such a good thing.

I love this early stuff, but as with the first time around when I was listening on tape, it takes some getting into.
