Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense ★★★★★

david byrne enters the bare stage with nothing but an acoustic guitar and a boom box, plays a very terse Psycho Killer, and as he continues after that, the band, stage, and crew start building and coming together around him, culminating in the final song, Crosseyed and Painless.

the energy builds and builds, with seemingly no stop.

byrne's stage presence is incredible, whether it's marching to Swamp, having mini-seizures during Once in a Lifetime, or hovering over a lowered mic stand while singing Life During Wartime. 

and just as quickly as he entered, he leaves, before Crosseyed and Painless is even done, before any of the band leaves, while they're still on stage playing.

BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE!
