Dangerous Mind
(The Catherine Wheel is one of the greatest “fuck albums” of all time, too. That’s how they should market it, if you ask me. I toyed with the obnoxious linkbait title of “David Byrne, of all people, recorded the ultimate fuck album” but thought better of it). […]

Robert Christgau
Byrne’s take on the rhythms of Africa is even more perilous for imitators than Coltrane’s on the mysteries of the Orient, but this surprisingly apt translation-to-disc of his Twyla Tharp score proves his patent is worth the plastic it’s imprinted on. […]

allmusic
Only the lyrics disappoint; they consist almost entirely of clichéd and predictable depictions of domestic suburban angst. […]
