Speaking in Tongues is the fifth studio album by American rock band Talking Heads, released on June 1, 1983 by Sire Records. Following their split with producer Brian Eno and a short hiatus, which allowed the individual members to pursue side projects, recording began in 1982. It became the band's commercial breakthrough and produced the band's first (and only) US top-ten hit, "Burning Down the House".

Speaking in Tongues is the fifth studio album by the band Talking Heads, released in 1983. The album was a commercial breakthrough that produced the band's first (and only) American Top 10 hit, "Burning Down the House", which was accompanied by a promotional video. The album's tour was documented in Jonathan Demme's film Stop Making Sense, which generated a live album of the same name. The concert film and live album's title comes from the repeated phrase "Stop making sense!" during the song "Girlfriend Is Better". The album was re-released in February 2006 as a remastered DualDisc. It contains the extended versions of the songs found on the original cassette, and includes two additional tracks ("Two Note Swivel" and an alternate mix of "Burning Down the House").

Talking Heads found a way to open up the dense textures of the music they had developed with Brian Eno on their two previous studio albums for Speaking in Tongues, and were rewarded with their most popular album yet. Ten backup singers and musicians accompanied the original quartet, but somehow the sound was more spacious, and the music admitted aspects of gospel, notably in the call-and-response of "Slippery People," and John Lee Hooker-style blues, on "Swamp.

Band Name Talking Heads. Album Name Speaking in Tongues. Other productions from Talking Heads.

Speaking In Tongues is a music studio album recording by TALKING HEADS (Prog Related/Progressive Rock) released in 1983 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. With their fifth album, our Babbling Heads are on top of their game (bettering their previous RiL album) with the marvellous pop/rock masterpiece Speaking In Tongues, where they manage the rare feat to write an album-full of clever pop tunes that would climb the charts on a few occasions, yet still be sufficiently adventurous to interest the more discerning music fans.

CD: Made in West Germany

The original U.S. Sire/Warner Bros. CD issue duplicates the vinyl version of this album, which used shorter versions of five tracks than the cassette. Meanwhile, the U.S. Sire cassette version contained longer versions of those five tracks, which are: 'Making Flippy Floppy', 'Girlfriend is Better', 'Slippery People', 'I Get Wild/Wild Gravity' and 'Moon Rocks.' (The cassette being touted as the format for extra tracks and extended versions at the time.) Somewhere along the next decade or so, a later US Sire CD repressing quietly dropped the shorter versions, and replaced them with the longer cassette versions. There was no mention made of this via a shrinkwrap sticker or any note on the packaging, other than the new longer times being displayed on the back insert. The 2006 UK/US CD+DVD reissues continue to use the longer cassette versions. (Also, the original "US" CD issues of this album were manufactured in West Germany and Japan and imported to the US, circa 1986, as CDs were not being made here yet, but used a US serial number).

Jerry did a fine job on this 5.1 mix. Worth the purchase at any price - if you really want it. I still like the original lp mix the best though.
