Remain in Light, Talking Heads - David Byrne said that Remain in Light "was done in bits and pieces, one instrument at a time." The result was a New Wave masterpiece powered by contradiction, the combined thrust of a P-Funk dance party, the ancient-to-the-future rhythm hypnosis of Nigerian funkmaster Fela Kuti and the studied adventurousness of the album's producer and Heads co-conspirator, Brian Eno. Just try not dancing to "Once in a Lifetime."
'Remain In Light' is generally regarded by music critics as being the best Talking Heads album. It was the third album in the Heads/Eno trilogy and was -after 'I Zimbra' on Fear Of Music- their second exploration of African rhythms. 'Remain In Light' was issued in October 1980.
