Editorial Reviews

From the vaults of the award-winning PBS Austin City Limits TV show, this is the latest release in the acclaimed Live From Austin, TX series.

David Byrne is a modern renaissance man and that s not just a cliché. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts. He s been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful...and he shows no signs of slowing down three decades later.

This performance, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, Like Humans Do and the release of the album Look Into the Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, Descondido Soy. Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin s own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut.

This performance from David Byrne is near flawless. His band is Damn good. The percussion is really fun and the bass player is as solid as they come while delivery the harmony vocals perfectly by himself. There are some great versions of Talking Heads classics plus some of his best solo work. There is a bad ass string section that really puts the fresh twist on these songs although my only criticism is that they may have been used a little too much but i understand why he would want to use them that much....because they are that good! David Byrne is a national artistic treasure. He makes you think, dance, & want to cry all at the same time.

This is my shortest review... If you liked Stop Making Sense, then purchase this DVD.

David Byrne moves forward without the Heads for an all-star performance.

I LOVE the Heads but found myself asking, "why didn't he leave sooner?"

A must have!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember when I saw this performance on Austin City Limits in 2001, and I found myself searching endlessly for any type of publication for the consumer. Much to my dismay, there wasn't one out until 2007. Little did I know, but finding it 6 years later was a pleasant surprise to say the least. It exceeded my memory of the show and thrilled to see David Byrne rocking it out. Now where do I get his cool shirt?

Awesome show. Just like the live concert; Byrne has great energy and plays great songs. You will not be disappointed whether you are a Byrne fan or just checking him out for the first time.
