Default Talking Heads Were The Best Band in the World

They were so influential and ground breaking. Great production from the likes of Eno. Great song writing and even though they were able to hold their own, they employed Adirian Belew, Steve Scalesand Jonny Marr. All great contributions in their own styles. When I was in school, I loved the band. I saw them 5 times. The shows were unreal. I saw a few with the big band set.

This is a bold statement.

I love the heads man, I recognize the genius that is Byrne.

But I don't think that statement is entirely correct.

I'd argue the Talking Heads were the best of the late 70's/early 80's but wouldn't quite say best in the world ever haha

In 1805. That's what makes it an especially impressive achievement!
