As a huge Talking Heads fan I cannot judge this record without bias. By looking at track four I can already tell that some great early songs are missing as are some later ones. But it does not matter because this record was not created for my listening in the first place. For the casual fan it is all they need (not quite, Sand in the Vaseline is a better introduction). It contains all of their hits throughout the seventies and eighties and that along with spare album cuts here and there is all the casual listener with little further interest in the band really needs.
