Customer Review

on 23 March 2004
Talk Talk were one of the few 80's bands that emerged from the decade with any sort of credibility. Most people will identify the band with the string of melodic hit singles that adorned the period and time has only improved their status.
This album however marked a complete shift in direction for the band with a move away from the driving melodic sound that was so successful to a minmalist dossonant sound where every note has a purpose. This album is certainly not for everyone, it's hard going and personally I found that repeated listens left me cold. The sound is arcane and enigmatic but ultimately fails to deliver.
I would only recommend this album to those that enjoy dissonant minmalist soundscapes. If you want an introduction to Talk Talk try their first two albums.
