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

5.0 out of 5 stars The adult side of New Romanticism 30 July 2004
By Frank T
Format:Audio CD
Talk Talk entered the UK music scene in 1982 with "The Party's Over", an album of earnest, overwrought electro anthems in the vein of Ultravox. Though an enjoyable nostalgic listen, it now sounds rather dated and derivative. However, the follow-up "It's My Life" two years later was a different kettle of fish. While incorporating plenty of catchy, up-tempo stompers such as the singles "Such a Shame" and "It's My Life" to keep the New Romantics happy, it also bore witness to a new songwriting maturity on the part of singer Mark Hollis - a kind of geeky, mop-topped Brian Ferry - and producer Tim Friese-Greene. Even though the lyrics are impenetrable, the melodies and arrangements evince real flair and imagination. Not to mention anguish. I've no idea what Hollis is wailing about in "Tomorrow Started", but I hope I never experience it. The significant thing is that it's typical of this album, in having a stupendously good tune.

Talk Talk would take their new introspective style even further in their next two albums, "The Colour of Spring" and "Spirit of Eden", by abandoning synthesisers completely and veering into meandering, ambiguous territory that sounded like no one so much as fin-de-siècle French composer Claude Debussy. Those are both great albums too; but being an incorrigible New Romantic, I retain a special place in my affections for "It's My Life".

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock the Party 31 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Picture this! Your @ your mates house, a crummy suburban terraced house. Their parents are on holiday and you decide to have a party. It's 1984. You stick a 12" LP on called It's My Life and get the party spirit going. It's the year 2000. Your @ your mates house, a crummy suburban terraced house. Their parents are on holiday and you decide to have a party. You stick on a CD called It's My Life band a now defunkt act called "talk Talk". This album is probably, by my choice, their best ever album. Such energy and vibrancy is captured in this album, which was rare caoming from other artists back in the 80's (and probably the 90's too). The party house shakin' tracks are It's My Life, Dum Dum Girl (wicked bassline), Call In The Nightboy, Such a Shame and the epic It's You. The track you'd probably play @ the end of the party would be Renee, a bit of a tearjerker I reckon. If there is one Talk Talk album you buy make it this one. It rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a difference a couple of years makes 24 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
It's My life is the second Talk Talk studio album and it's so much more grown up than the debut. One of the most interesting aspects is the realisation that some of the bands earlier recordings were actually incomplete. The first time that I heard Talk Talk on a Radio 1 concert back in 1982 they played a version of 'Renee'. The song appears on this album with more grown up instrumentation, a really good production and an astonishing vocal performance from Hollis that brings out all the pain and passion of unrequited love. Another throw back is 'Call in the night boys' which was either a b-side or an extra track on the 12" of one of the single releases on their debut album. At that time it was a strange mix of classical piano and a very slow (and pretentious) vocal arrangement. The new version on this LP is an upbeat anthem with full instrumentation which matches the grandeur of the title track. 'Such A Shame' is the same classic that it was in 1984. The album version differs from the single in that it has this delicious patient intro that builds in intensity to the opening of the song...as Hollis begins the vocal, the hairs on the back of my neck literally stand up. It is amazing to think of the lack of commercial success that the band were facing at this time. I remember a school friend saying that he thought 'Such a Shame' was the best song on the LP and never realised it had been a single. Sadly, the epic 'Dum Dum Girl' received the same fate in terms of lack of acclaim in the singles chart. What you get on this LP is three of the best singles the band ever produced intermingled with some intense and engaging album tracks ending with the anthemic 'It's You'. From start to finish this is a winner...one of those few original studio LPs that you will have the patience to listen to all the way through without wanting to skip a track. Absolutely fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars True classic 28 May 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Thanks to No Doubt for recently reviving the title track and letting another generation know about Talk Talk. They were truly an 80's pop band but were also crafted musicians and great song writers. Each song is brilliant and stands the test of time. A must for any collection and proof that in recent years so few group a) write thier own music and b) when they do, actually sound any good!!

I am a huge fan of this group, and in particular the extraordinarily haunting voice of Mark Hollis. This album is therefore a must for my collection.
