for this 1980 masterpiece the group (& brian eno) explored african polyrhythms on driving groove tracks, over which david byrne chanted & sang his typically disconnected lyrics.

'remain in light' had more words than any previous heads record, but they counted for less than ever in the sweep of the music. the album's single, 'once in a lifetime', flopped upon release, but over the years it has become a classic, quirky pop song & an audience favourite. A daring & experimental fusion of new wave rock, electronica, disco & african music that, for many, would define talking heads' classic sound.
