4 stars For me Talking Heads put out two albums that I've always considered to be prog. This one and Fear Of Music. The debut was simple new wave, but when Eno got involved with the band on their second album they went off in a new direction. After this album, they'd head off in a more commercial direction, but this was their pinnacle.

The band lineup had expanded with guest musicians, including Brian Eno and Adrian Belew to make some really complex and intense music. This music certainly bears little resemblance to the progressive rock of the early '70's, but with so many of the big names from that era veering off into commercial music, this album came along as breath of fresh air.

Fans of surround sound mixes will be interested to know that Jerry Harrison has presided over recent remasters which include bonus tracks and surround sound mix on the DVD side of the discs as well as some video. Fans of the band are sure to go "dammit, now I need to buy them all over again."

Best track on here to convince you this is prog: The Overload.
