Customer Review

on 22 January 2004
Containing some of the most infectiously bizarre dance music ever made, "Remain in Light" defies normal analysis or comparison: a totally controlled musical nightmare in which a troupe of Afro-Cuban drummers, a post-punk rock band, a demented preacher, a group of Benedictine monks and an electronic gizmo freak meet behind the mixing desk of a New York disco to produce one of the most unusual and innovative records of the last 20 years.
Underpinned by insidiously complex, multi-layered arrangements that combine percussion, instruments, electronic sounds, vocal chants, weird guitar breaks and "off the wall" lyrics into the jerky, high-tension poly-rhythms that underpin all but its depressingly dull final track, Talking Heads' masterwork will drive you forward into a unique and unforgettable musical landscape that stills sounds as fresh and different today as it did in 1980.
