This review is from: The Colour Of Spring (Audio CD)
The Colour Of Spring must have seemed completely alien to the Smash Hits reading teens of the time but it still sold respectably in the UK and wowed the music press. It's not dissimilar in it's themes and ambitions to XTC's Skylarking, which came out around the same time - ironically a record also adored by the critics and ignored by the public.
This is Talk Talk's most consistent long player and is always criminally overlooked when the list of great and good albums of the 1980's is compiled. Much like Talk Talk themselves.
Patience and repeated listening rewards in spades.
