Speaking in Tongues



        This was a CD that I actually inherited (along with my love of Talking Heads) from my brother. Speaking in Tongues holds a weird place in my mind though. While every single one of the tracks on this album is great, six of the nine were rendered almost unlistenable by the release of Stop Making Sense. Their live show was so spectacular, it almost seems like the only Talking Heads you need to listen to are The Name of This Band is Talking Heads and Stop Making Sense. Had those two albums never existed, this would be right up with Fear of Music.
