I was passionate about music long before I became passionate about film. It began when my neighbor played Hunky Dory to me, and became stronger through school as I discovered the likes of Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Joy Division, The Fall and too many punk bands to mention. We shared albums on cassette and I started listening to the John Peel show on the radio. He broadened my appreciation for obscure music. I mention this because Talking Heads were a big part of my musical education. I remember playing Fear of Music to death when it came out.

David Byrne is not a conventional singer. In fact, very few of the bands I love have people who can really sing. It's just not a requirement for me. I prefer vocalists who obviously feel what they are performing, even if their vocal ability is limited. A list of my favorites would include:

Ian Curtis - Joy Division
Neil Young
Stephen Malkmus - Pavement (can't even stay in the same key)
Black Francis - Pixies
Tom Verlaine - Television
David Bowie
Kristin Hersh - Throwing Muses
Polly Harvey
Nick Cave
Thurston Moore/Kim Gordon/Lee Ranaldo - Sonic Youth
Kurt Cobain - Nirvana
Jonathan Richman - The Modern Lovers
Mark E. Smith - The Fall

Byrne whines, growls, yelps and screams. It works...for me. It may not work for everyone. The same goes for most people on the above list. That's why all those bands, and Talking Heads, don't sound like anyone else.

I was really keen on watching this movie and when I popped it into my blu ray player a big message comes up on screen. Wrong Format. WTF? Was I sent a Europeon disc? Fail! I wrote the company and they said they'd exchange it or refund me but it's a big hassle. Why are they sending out Europeon discs? I'm in Canada!
Not pleased at all.

Did I listen he Talking Heads in the 80' ? No. But every time I watch and listen this film, it's from the beginnig to the end. Intelligence, energy and performance from a real and a amazing band!

À voir et à attendre absolument. L'intelligence, l'énergie et la performance d'un groupe, un vrai. Absolument incroyable.

I purchased this Blu Ray because the DVD I had would no longer load in my Blu Ray player.

Why did they not do it properly and give proper widescreen? This fill the screen product leaves me less that fully satisfied.

My old DVD was the anamorphic widescreen and I loved it.

Wow! Energy, amazing music. If you like Talking Heads even a little, you have to see this. If you like Talking Heads a lot, you have to own this video.

My DVD player refuses to play this DVD. "Cannot play, restricted area". My computer will play but no audio. Very disappointed. I've bought many DVDs and never run into this problem.

Relieved that everything I ordered from Amazon arrived quickly and with no problems.
