Talking Heads (also known as Brick) is a box set by rock band Talking Heads, containing the band's eight studio albums in DualDisc format with videos and previously unreleased material. Remixed by Jerry Harrison in Advanced Resolution 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound, Brick is the first DualDisc release of an artist's entire back catalogue. The albums included in Brick are:

The first four titles were released separately on January 10, 2006 and the second four on February 14, 2006, in digipacks rather than white jewel cases. All were mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound, NYC.

In an attempt to frustrate CD ripping, this release includes MediaMax CD-3 on the CD sides. This program, which has been labeled malware by many security experts, infects computers running certain versions of Microsoft Windows (abusing the "AutoRun" feature) and Mac OS, and attempts to disable the optical disc drive if the user attempts to copy the music into files on their computer.
