4.0 out of 5 stars Their first ... and their best, 10 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Party's Over (Audio CD)
Talk Talk fans seem to be divided into two camps. Those that like the first album and a few of the later single tracks, or those who just like the later album tracks and ignore the early stuff. I fall into the former category, as I find the "soundscapes" - you can hardly call them songs - of the later albums to be just so much pretentious rubbish.

This then, is their debut album - retitled, remastered and on CD - but with no extra tracks. Each track is a catchy synthpop song, and particularly worthy of note are "Talk Talk" and "Today". I'm only giving this a four star review rather than five, because I'm sure there must be a few outtakes in the archives that could have made this a more worthwhile CD release.

After this came the fairly memorable second album, then the dismal muso nonsense of the later albums.

Are you kidding me?!? I love all their albums and the later ones are nothing short of masterpieces. It's ironic you refer to Talk Talk's later albums as "pretentious rubbish" because I was thinking the same thing about your review.

You may not agree with the reviewer but please refrain from making snidey carps about his valid comments. Pretentious? Look the word up.
