    Excellent mastering by the infallible Joe Webster! Percussion pounds HARD in great detail with a killer bottom end thud; quirky synths buzz, rumble & float straight in front of you in a great stereo image & big airy soundstage; bass tones SUPER robust & present; Byrne's vocals prominent and upfront; lovely crystalline clarity all over; and so on...

    The Talking Heads' exotic rhythms have always been regarded as absolute sonic masterpieces, Speaking in Tongues being no exception, and this above average Canadian release certainly does it justice.

    I've got a copy from Canada with 92 38831 on the spine, but with a different 'stamp'. It has no pressing code ('Q'), above the A and B it says 238831 instead of 92 38831 and the other information is different. Is it a variation of this release or can I add it as a different version? Can't find this release on Discogs.

    Speaking in Tongues is the fifth studio album by the band Talking Heads, released in 1983. The album was a commercial breakthrough that produced the band's first (and only) American Top 10 hit, "Burning Down the House", which was accompanied by a promotional video.

    The album's tour was documented in Jonathan Demme's film Stop Making Sense, which generated a live album of the same name. (The concert film and live album's title comes from the repeated phrase "Stop making sense!" during the song "Girlfriend Is Better".) In addition, the album crossed over to the dance charts, peaking at number two for six weeks.[8] It is also the group's highest-charting album on the American Billboard 200.
