Once her popularity seemed assured, Warner Bros. felt safe releasing this five-record set (since reissued on four CDs) comprising United States' entire four-and-a-half hours. It's not the first place I'd recommend going to hear Anderson's work, but for those so inclined it's well worth the effort. Although live performances of United States included film segments that ran during some of her monologues, United States is about communication and how we interpret and use language. It's a bit pretentious, a tad long-winded, and its size makes it unwieldy to listen to in one sitting, but this is an important work loaded with enough insight, wit, and humanity to make relistening and re-evaluating worthwhile.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA presents a complete performance piece that includes songs featured on Anderson's other albums. It was presented in four parts (Transportation, Politics, Money, Love) which were presented in sections of two per evening. Each CD or cassette presents a single part.

UNITED STATES is Laurie Anderson's masterwork, a 78-track testimonial to her experimental genius. Most of the material on these four discs was recorded live at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in early 1983. Reprising nearly all of the tracks her 1982 debut album, BIG SCIENCE--sometimes in radically altered form--and previewing "Blue Lagoon" and "Hothead (La Langue D'Amour)" (both of which would turn up on 1984s MR. HEARTBREAK), this is a comprehensive collection.

UNITED STATES showcases all things Anderson, from her unique self-built instruments (both "Pictures Of It" and "Three Walking Songs" highlight her tape-bow violin) to the skewed sense of logic that informs her lyrics. Anderson often assumes the stance of an unusually incisive and witty stand-up comedienne. She introduces many of her compositions with lengthy stories. These usually conclude with bizarre punch lines, often at right angles to the rest of the tale. When taken individually, the pieces on UNITED STATES don't appear to be directly interrelated. As a whole, however, the album conveys Anderson's dryly comic statement about American--and, by extension, Western--culture.

Recorded at The Brooklyn Academy Of Music, Brooklyn, New York, February 7-10, 1983.
