    Older David Byrne does seem less tense, less nervous and more fun than younger David Byrne. He’s finally relaxed. And his creativity continues. His last album was excellent, and this show sounds insane in the best way. Great interview, Seth.

    My spouse and I saw the remastered “Stop Making Sense” in the theater last weekend— magnificent! David Byrne is one of those artists who feels like an incandescent being from another universe when he performs. Amazing.

    I saw David Byrne live at a small theater in Connecticut and it was as excellent and amazing as it could have been.

    Not to be the negative voice here, but Mark Knopfler painted the Imelda picture decades ago. “Golden Heart” is the album. I appreciate Byrne’s early songwriting, but his treatment of his former colleagues speaks volumes (no pun intended).
