Biography

With the exception of a handful of common threads -- chief among them the plaintive vocals and haunting lyrics of frontman Mark Hollis -- there is little to suggest that the five studio LPs that make up the Talk Talk oeuvre are indeed the work of the same band throughout. After beginning their career with records virtually epitomizing the new wave era that spawned them, the British group never ... Read more in Amazon's Talk Talk Store

3.0 out of 5 stars The final straw 4 Jan 2008
By John Sposato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As Talk Talk fans know, this album was prepared without the band's consent, who sued EMI and won. By court order, the album's officially out of print, but it's cheap here used anyway.
As for the tracks, "Happiness is Easy" was already done by Paul Webb and Lee Harris as a 12" B-side. The rest are done by various people outside the band. It's guilding the lily. Most of them are just regurgitations, but at least it's not a long repetitive 200 bpm acid house rave or a mash-up like there is now. By this time, Talk Talk had moved into post-rock, released their last album on another label, and then split up. Like other '80s relics, they were on the way out anyhow, with grunge entering the charts.
Originally released on EMI (USA) in the US and Canada, and Parlophone for the rest of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars IS this still in print? Nice remixes, fans may be baffled 10 Oct 2003
By D. H. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I recall that when this CD came out ther reaction by the fans of Talk Talk was one of horror. And I must admit, as a Talk Talk fan it WAS pretty odd that a band who had been moving away from any sort of dance music (if early hits like "Talk Talk" or "Its My Life" can be classified as dance music, which I think they can) to come out with this.
Of course, the truth was that EMI did the remixes without the band's knowledge and a big rwo ensued after this album's release. Basically the band did not want to pay for remixes they did not approve.
However (!) in the end I find this to be a interesting, well done remix album. There are a lot of nice mixes here, love the Fluke remix for example. One needs to enjoy this album as a mid 90s dance music example and not so much as a Talk Talk album per se.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Compilation Worth Revisiting 4 Jun 2014
By vqworks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've purchased quite a few greatest hits/singles albums before, including remixes. Some compilations leave you wondering whether your memories of your music were more vibrant than the actual recording. This happens when music companies use sub-standard multi-generation copies of the original source as a source of the CD or LP. Other times, so-called "remastered" compilations go through dynamic compression (compression between loud and soft passages) or even dynamic limiting (squashed volume peaks).

Thankfully, the remixes on Talk Talk's "History Revisted" didn't undergo any of these sonic mutilations. Everything is intact and the sound is crisp, dynamic, and vibrant. When you're listening and find yourself moving to the music (at least rhythmically nodding), you know something's right. The high quality of this release may be due to the fact that back in '91 excessive dynamic limiting and compression were not as prevalent as it is now.

Supposedly, these remixes were made and released without the consent of the band itself. The band was understandably upset that they're music was exploited in the name of money. But I have to admit that the remixes were done well.
5.0 out of 5 stars If You Are A Talk Talk Fan, You Must Get This Collection 9 Mar 2014
By The Tech Fanatic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I already had The Very Best of Talk Talk and I wanted to get the remixes as their music lends itself well to such treatment. I particularly wanted to get the remix of It's My Life as this is rare and hard to find. Controversy notwithstanding, this is an album that you must add to your Talk Talk collection. The song, It's My Life on this album is quite different and is more club dance than anything. It is very quirky but I really like it. The rest of the tracks are great. They are the typical remixes that you'll find of any artist that has been treated to a more dance style. It's sad that Talk Talk disowned these remixes but they basically disowned their old style of music much like the way Ministry did. If you are on the fence on this one, I highly recommend it. Most of the remixes do not deviate from the original.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! Where can I get another one? 3 Oct 2011
By Carol W. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
5 star rating on this one. I love this CD by Talk Talk. It's my favorite, but I need a new one now, my old one is played out. Hope I can find one on Amazon or somewhere.
