The two other reviews here well describe both the music and the circumstances of this albums release. What I would like to just add here however is that for this album - as well as the remastering to the 5.1 surround sound - the songs themselves are slightly different to the (or at least my) original cd. The very first time I played this version, on 'Making Flippy Floppy' I thought - "I don't remember that bit" and this continued through. Five of the tracks are extended - most by about a minute and a half - and this is not unwelcome. Speaking In Tongues is probably my personal favourite album of Talking Heads and this version just enhances my appreciation - and the addition of the extra track 'Two Note Swivel' fits in well too. Full marks!
