Considered the benchmark for live performances. 10/10 for me. It's as much theatre as a concert but throw in such high quality of musical craftsmanship and you have a masterpiece.

This is why I emphasised to watch the live performance first rather than listening - seeing the musicianship quality and the unique David Byrne gives it a real different perspective and I admire them a lot more than I would have.

Obviously not heard Bruce Springsteen's Live 75-85 boxset.
I said “might” :) But I’m gonna quibble . . . . that’s a collection of live recordings, not a concert. It’s culled from 10 years; SMS is 2 nights, same tour. He’s arguably the best live artist in rock — certainly one of them. But I’m not sure that counts.

Well, obviously it's subjective, but I take your point. The main difference being that whether you like his music or not, he turns up, plays songs, some fast, some slow, some long, some short. From what I've heard of the Talking Heads concert, they played a few half-decent tunes to start the concert off, and then dicked around with keyboards for 3/4 of the running time.
