Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.126) - Ranked #126 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "[A] New Wave masterpiece....REMAIN IN LIGHT marked Talking Heads' transformation from avatars of the punk avant-garde to polyrhythmic magicians with hit-single appeal."

Rolling Stone (11/89) - Ranked #4 in Rolling Stone's '100 Best Albums of The 80s' survey.

Rolling Stone (11/13/03, p.101) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...The band no longer sounded twitchy and overcaffeinated; it made music that was confident and fluid. The Heads had already mastered minimalist funk, but here they built jams around thick, slurred rhythms..."

Spin (p.140) - "[They] created a big-band sound that would later inspire outfits like !!!."

Q (p.129) - Ranked #5 in Q Magazine's "10 Essential Reissues Of 2006."

Uncut (p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[P]erhaps the Big Bang of early-'80s culture clash....Byrne and Eno's lyrics explored the acute sense of dislocation at the dawn of the Reagan/Thatcher era."

Vibe (12/99, p.162) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century

NME (Magazine) (9/25/93, p.19) - Ranked #11 among The 50 Greatest Albums Of The '80s.
