After Remain In Light it was a letdown, the Heads first only OK album / 3
Talking Heads fifth album explored similar material to their masterpiece, the brilliant Remain In Light, but is more influenced by American funk than African pop. This is the first album since 77 without Brian Eno producing and what he added on previous albums, that sense of sonic exploration and density of sound, is sorely missed. As a consequence Speaking in Tongues sounds stripped down, thinner than its amazing predecessor Remain In Light and far less interesting. Speaking In Tongues seems to be a step sideways rather than forwards and though it's enjoyable, it's far from the groundbreaking music I'd come to expect from the Heads. There are some very good songs on Speaking In Tongues such as Girlfriend Is Better, or This Must Be The Place, but many of the songs seem half baked, and when compared to Remain In Light sound like demo tracks. You can blame Eno's absence, his production and musicianship might have pushed Talking Heads over the edge into more creative territory. But the fault lies primarily with the songs themselves: that wacky spark of originality usually found in their music is largely missing. The material simply doesn't measure up to the high standards previously set by Talking Heads, neither musically, nor lyrically. Speaking In Tongues is actually a fun listen, but for me was a letdown. The band seem content to merely entertain rather than innovate, with the consequence being that Speaking In Tongues was the first Talking Heads recording that could be considered almost ordinary.
Song "The Big Country"
I see the shapes,
I remember from maps.
I see the shoreline.
I see the whitecaps.
A baseball diamond, nice weather down there.
I see the school and the houses where the kids are.
Places to park by the fac'tries and buildings.
Restaunts and bar for later in the evening.
Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas.
And i have learned how these things work together.
I see the parkway that passes through them all.
And i have learned how to look at these things and i say,


I wouldn't live there if you paid me.
I couldn't live like that, no siree!
I couldn't do the things the way those people do.
I couldn't live there if you paid me to.

I guess it's healthy, i guess the air is clean.
I guess those people have fun with their neighbors and friends.
Look at that kitchen and all of that food.
Look at them eat it' guess it tastes real good.

They grow it in the farmlands
And they take it to the stores
They put it in the car trunk
And they bring it back home
And i say ...


I say, i wouldn't live there if you paid me.
I couldn't live like that, no siree!
I couldn't do the things the way those people do.
I wouldn't live there if you paid me to.

I'm tired of looking out the windows of the airplane
I'm tired of travelling, i want to be somewhere.
It's not even worth talking
About those people down there.
