Reviews For Speaking In Tongues By Artist Talking Heads

  • Best Talking Heads album!

    By mommylaptop
    The songs are random, funny, upbeat, and all around classic. I will support myself to say Talking Heads is the best band of the eighties. They carried new wave on their backs. Something, I certainly can't say about other bands of that decade. Sure, Depeche Mode is also very definitive, but this bands creativity is appalling. The best songs and the ones that stick out most to me (in order): "Burning Down the House", "This Must be the Place (Naive Melody)", "Girlfriend is Better", "Slippery People", and "Flippy Flop Flop". Okay, everyone must know of "Burning Down the House", I mean honestly there all timeless but this one is most notable for carrying it's catchy rhythm and utterly bizarre lyrics. "This Must be the Place" as a final track works fabulously as a love song with the soft smooth rhythm to the different instruments (most notably: flute) coming into play, it is genius. I know a lot of people think David Bryne's voice is not perfect, but I honestly don't think it matters a bit. He shows just like Bob Dylan, you don't need a beautiful voice to portray amazing lyrics or show emotion, unlike even some of the most talented voices out there. Moving on "Girlfriend is Better", is an instant dance classic carrying an instantly captivating start in lyrics and beat. Finally, I don't know who wouldn't find this band talented as experienced in this album and the rest of theirs, even if they don't care for their type. And for that this is my favorite Talking Heads album, second being 'Talking Heads: 77' and third being 'Remain in Light' and so on. Also, I recommend buying their greatest hits as well. Advice: their 99cents songs are sometimes better than the more popular 1.29 songs.
  • Buy the vinyl!

    Vinyl is much better. Great investment. Ditch iTunes. But this album is amazing!!!
  • Absolutely Genius Artists.

    I purchased this album when it came out and have purchased it several times over the years upon having it stolen or lost from various surf trips and ski trips. This is a classic and a must in my itunes library. I know every word to every song and it totally takes me back to a much simpler life.... They are such talented musicians.

    Hey - this is the real thing. Perhaps the best album from 1983. From top to bottom the entire thing is worth your money. Talking Heads fans know this ranks up there with some of the bands best stuff. "Everybody, get in line!"

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
