I love Talk Talk as they are a unique sounding band with imaginative sounds and lyrical content. The vocals compliment the erie sounds produced by the musicians and the recording is fabulous, I definitely recommend this CD.

Timeless classic from a highly unrated band who refused to compromise. Will stand the test of time unlike todays crop of pre-packaged corporate claptrap. Thanks Mark.

OK, so CD's don't have 2 sides I know, but the point of the heading is that the first 5 tracks of this (the band's 2nd outing) are quite outstanding, after that it is a little weak for me.
IML marked a major turning point musically for TT. After the New Romantic leanings of TPO (albeit a stronger set of songs than any of their peers at the time, Japan excepted), IML showcased the great musicianship of the band & their reluctance to produce 'plastic' pop chart fodder. Mark Hollis recruited keyboard player & writer Tim Friese-Greene to the band & this allowed TT to fully explore their musical toy box & create soundscapes that would, frankly have not been out of place on Bowie album. Hollis' lyrics always hint at the darker side of human nature & the relationships that define our personalities. His 'clipped' vocal delivery & at times vaguely indistinct murmurings can get frustrating at times, but really suit the world weary, deep feeling in his voice.
The songs portray a man who has never really 'fitted in' with society at large & bemoans the lost chances & mistakes made along the way (Dum Dum Girl, Such a Shame). There is pain & anguish here the beautiful Renee & clever down beat electro-pop Tomorrow Started), but also defiance (the title track) that ultimately he will get what he wants even though the belief in this outcome sounds hollow & more in hope than expectation.

IML represents a giant leap in terms of production & sound from TPO, but the songs are a nice continuation as well as improvement from those on their debut. As I mentioned at the beginning the first half of the recording is by far the best, the remaining tracks could almost be left-overs from TPO sessions reworked, but no matter.
IML still ranks as one of the best early/mid 80's releases & provided a springboard for even greater material to come.

Enjoy. This is quality music from a band approaching the height of their powers.

Brilliant album timeless synth music. The songs are superb it just shows that early 80's music was not just about hair styles and fashion.
