Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

Ian Penman, New Musical Express, 27 October 1984

WHAT, WITHOUT wandering, is here? A company move, accompanying live movie (directed by Jonathan Demme), a record – another live LP, so soon? Where's the cents in that? – of the movie, all in all a project goin' on, something of a steady enterprise, a sleek, self-servicing, self-Devotional choir, or cloister, obviously with a purpose or two in lifetime, collectable, collatable, sensible... Sorry for wandering. What else is there?
