5.0 out of 5 stars Phill Brown - Are We Still Rolling?, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spirit Of Eden (Audio CD)
Phill Brown was the engineer on this record. In his fabulous book Are We Still Rolling? he documents the story behind the recording of this album. I'm in my fifties, and had remembered Talk Talk as a 1980s New Romantic band who did things like Mirror Man and Life's What You Make It. When I started reading Phill's book I wasn't expecting too much from the two chapters on Talk Talk. However, once I had read them I bought this album.

Terrific. One of those records that make an immediate impact. Hugely satisfying. New Romanticism was just a passing phase (thankfully). The stand out track is Desire. So glad I discovered it. The older I get, the more difficult it is to find something new that I really like. Phill Brown, thank you. You did an exceptional job. Thank you, also, Mark Hollis. What a voice. Up there with the greats like Winwood and Plant.

If you don't know much about Talk Talk, please do two things: First, buy Are We Still Rolling? Second, buy Spirit of Eden. Unless I am very much mistaken, one or both of them will enrich your life. Cream rises to the top.Are We Still Rolling?: Studios, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll - One Man's Journey Recording Classic Albums

And if you love Spirit of Eden you must also get Laughing Stock which is even looser, but I think every bit it's equal :)

Blahtzenberg - thank you for your response. You have read my mind. It's on my Wish List. I'm saving it up. Spirit of Eden is an exceptionallly good album. Bizarre as it may seem, I'm happy to wait and see what Laughing Stock is like. As my old boss, Adrian E Cole, told me 35 years ago when I was an impressionable 18 year, anticipation is the best part!
