If you are a Talking Heads/David Byrne fan, then this is an essential addition to your media collection. The song selection is broader than on the CD, but does not add much to the experience. However, the video presentation, though perhaps "artful" and expressive of the spastic energy of David Byrne, is stark in its colorless renderings and doesn't drive much for a repeat viewing experience beyond the initial interest in the odd behavior and great Talking Heads music collection.
Stop Making Sense is over-the-top entertaining, even for a luke-warm Talking Heads fan. There is no elaborate stage setting or high tech lighting, which makes watching the energetic performances that much more captivating. Can't get enough of it! It has become my favorite concert DVD.
