packing? meh. But who cares about packaging?
So Talking Heads fans will be wondering whether this is worth it if they already have most or all of the above-mentioned releases, and the answer is YES. This is true for all of the albums, but especially for Remain in Light and Naked, which really sound like new albums. Listening to either one of these records on the DVD-side surround mixes on solid speakers is a life-altering experience. (And furthermore, thanks to some tweaks and editing, in many ways the DVD sides really are different from the CD sides.) Even without surround, the remastered CD sides are an instantly noticeable improvement. The unreleased material and B-sides are generally excellent, and often provide insight into how the album, or its songs, were made or put together. The video extras, while few in number, are surprisingly good and aren't dated, grainy, or cheesy. Given how wretched music videos from the 70s and 80s tend to be, this is a testament to the artistic skill of the Heads. As mentioned above in the title of this review, the packaging on this, while it looks cool, was really poorly designed. The backs of the individual cases are white, so we don't get to see the rear cover art, and they're also white on the side, so you can't tell which CD you've got until you pull it out. The exterior case is creatively designed but the CDs fit in it rather tightly, which means their cases are prone to breaking when you take them out, and they're rather difficult to get out. Also, many have had problems with the Dualdisc format (on my computer, the DVD-side is finicky and sometimes doesn't want to play). But the heck with that. You buy CDs for the music, not to look at the tracklist on the back. If you are a Heads fan then get this. Believe the hype.Read full review
Talking Heads Dual Disc Brick * [DualDisc] CD/DVD
I bought this mainly because I was looking for the video "Blind." I saw it many years ago on MTV and have wanted to see it again. This is the first Talking Heads Video release I have seen with "Blind." I do like other songs by the Talking Heads as well and I don't have any of their albums on CD, so I figured that's another reason to purchase this set. THIS IS A MUST-HAVE FOR ANY TALKING HEADS FAN! BTY- I was very please with the seller as well as the product.
Talking Heads in 5.1 sound
I am a long time fan of Talking Heads and I was very pleased to find that they now have most of their albums remastered in 5.1 sound. The quality of this remastered edition is remarkable. I wish I knew about this box release earlier.
Wow, What a great collection!
For a T. Heads fan, this is all you need! Buy this and sell off all your "regular" CDs, LPS, 12" SINGLES, 7" SINGLES, ETC! (BUT NOT THOSE REALLY RARE GOODIES YOU HAVE - GOTTA HAVE SOME OF THOSE! ;-D! FABULOSO!
