This review is from: Remixed (Audio CD)This is yet another attempt by the record company to cash in on Talk Talk's back catalogue, so avoid like the plague.
If you want to sample Talk Talk, go for these three albums: It's My Life, The Colour of Spring and Spirit of Eden. Oh yeah, the London Live 1986 is worth having, too.
But avoid these rubbish remix albums at all costs - all were released without permission of the band - and buy the music as the band intended you to here it - in other words the original albums.
The first album, The Party's Over, is very poppy and dates from when EMI tried to turn them into a second Duran Duran. It's one for fanatics only, but the others are some of the most sublime music you'll ever hear.
You can tell I'm a lifelong Talk Talk fan, can't you?

No! We can't tell you're a lifelong fan.
If you were you'd know your stuff...
Talk Talk radically changed their style in the later albums
but the the first and the couple of followers were indeed very good stuff
and the remixes are just brilliant.
Very well mastered craft that remixer has...
This collection is also a very good way to get to know a great band...
