Ah what a record this is. Freed from the rather hi-brow pretensions of Talking Heads, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth made a glorious fun for all dance pop album which spawned actual pop hits whilst would also appeal to fans of the New York oddball bands such as Liquid Liquid. Incredibly influential it is now available on a translucent green vinyl edition. Let's party!

8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th November 2016
Even if you didn't know about this pair's first spin-off away from the "Heads", chances are you at least heard the fits-all-stations-song "Genius of Love"- a song that captures the feel of the early 80s in so many different ways. That song epitomises the rest of this album as well - a whimsical cruise through a series of songs designed to create a mood - and in that this album is successful. A side of Talking Heads writing you rarely see in the shadow of David Byrne's writing dominance, with all due respect.
