Forget The Best Of, if you're really looking for an introduction to the work of Talking Heads go for this brilliant double disc live compilation. It covers all of their best work, including the whole of the Remain In Light tour set list with the amazing Adrian Belew on guitar. Some of the versions of songs here are better than the original album versions. Born Under Punches is given a brilliant smooth and slick intro with some great bass work from Tina Weymouth extending the whole track to over eight minutes. The only small problem I have with the album is the way the tracks have been split as any song introductions are usually put at the end of the track beforehand, which is misleading if you're only listening to seperate tracks, but this is no problem if you're listening to the album in its entirety, which really everyone should. Out of all the Talking Heads albums, this is the one I listen to most.
