4 stars The year was 1979 and things were afoot.

Not least of which was this album that was originally released with a cover textured like a slip-resistant steel tread.

Both Brian Eno and now Robert Fripp had intersected the band and the result was quite good.

So as some of the usual suspects in progressive rock were fading, Talking Heads were on the rise.

It is an interesting assortment of songs, all short of course. Longer explorations would have to wait for the next album.

My favorite track and probably the proggiest: Drugs. "I feel like murder but that's alright."

Now available in remaster without a textured cover but you get bonus tracks a surround sound mix courtesy of Jerry and a couple of bonus videos.
