Talking Heads Speaking in Tongues VINYL


SKU: 081227966652 Categories: , Tags: , ,


World Music sounds and funky rhythms had infected Talking Heads music prior to this 1983 pop breakthrough, but Speaking in Tongues is where it all really gels. The band’s quirky, nerdy persona somehow blends easily with music borrowed from the African Diaspora on “Stop Making Sense” and “Burning Down the House”. Speaking in Tongues also marks one of the last true band collaborations, before Byrne reduced his partners to mere sidemen. If their edgier early albums now sound more challenging and unique in hindsight, this one at least documents the New York quartet’s singular blend of World Beat, art school rock and the always irresistible dance floor. The album was a commercial breakthrough that produced the band’s first (and only) American Top 10 hit, “Burning Down the House”. In 2012 Slant Magazine listed Speaking in Tongues at No.89 on its list of Best Albums of the 1980s.
