It's not bad though. These are all fantastic songs, but they don't do justice to the Talking Heads. Bottom line: get this if you've never heard the Heads before and are looking for a general place to start. It'll give you some exposure to the very different styles the band has (compare "And She Was" to "Once In A Lifetime" to "Slippery People" and you'll see what I mean) and then you can really dive into the actual studio albums these songs are pulled from.
The major plus here: "Sax and Violins." This is a song that didn't make the cut onto any of the Heads' major studio albums, but is really just a phenomenal song. Check it out.
Are there better Talking Heads albums out there? Sure, but nonetheless this is one well worth having. I really like it.
