    One of the best albums of Talking Heads, personally I only like the first album more...

      I am in possession of a US mint promo copy marked as many here srk 6095. Only difference, it has a gold stamp bottom right corner of the sleeve 'promotional copy not for sale'.. Is this in the same price bracket as mint US copies from 1980?

        Talking Heads were enigma through most of their fascinating career. It is ungreatful to point out this album, being obvious with anyone's favourite choice from their discography. However, despite their artistic developments before or after, 'Remain in Light' truly REMAINS an all time masterpiece of modern American pop music - something to love America for, indeed. An objective study on multicultural issues and American paranoia ('Listening Wind' is a brilliant view of modern terror).

        The album contains eight reasons to love it by, most notably 'Once In a Lifetime' plus ecstatic 'Born Under Punches', 'Crosseyed & Painless' or 'The Great Curve' to name a few. A beautiful 'Seen & Not Seen' predating modern hip-hop beats with bizarre storytelling and absolutely one of the spookiest songs ever written - 'The Overload', sending shivers down the spine...

        A record not to be messed - shame on you if it does...
