This is so good
On one hand, we should have an entire Talk Talk thread. On the other hand, it would die on the vine because almost all of their output is flawless.
EDIT: Fuck it, I went ahead and did it anyway. This is the OG punk rock version of the first track on their debut LP and it’s magic. That guitar sound is no joke.
Still have yet to get into their earlier stuff, but that run of Colour of Spring - Spirit of Eden - Laughing Stock is astonishing.
Yeah, even one of those albums is a lifetime highlight for any band and they did three in a row. I used to think Laughing Stock was the best but I’m leaning towards Colours of Spring these days. There’s something about the way ot sounds that makes my imagination run wild
This needs to go in here. It was originally supposed to be a Talk Talk album but ended up a solo project. I don’t really like that many male vocalists, but I can listen to Mark Hollis anytime. It’s a beautifully fantastic album.
Listening to Spirit of Eden is like taking a warm bath surrounded by scented candles.
