Customer Reviews

It took 20+ years to realize this great compilation!

I remember when I first heard Talk Talk in the mid 1980's and was intrigued by their crafty pop songs and catchy but evocative lyrics. Yet, this was only the beginning and end of a great band starting with the "The Colour of Spring". Their following albums "The Spirit of Eden" and "Laughing Stock" respectively are masterpiece albums that are, in my humble opinion, 'music for musicians' albums. The chord palette and minimalism of these last two albums are something to behold and are some of the finest work of any group of the late 20th century hands down! When I first heard "Spirit of Eden" and "Laughing Stock" so many years ago and even until this day, it's hard to hold back tears for the sheer emotion and craftsmanship that leaps forth….it's that mind-blowing and an emotional roller coaster as well. Very few bands have reached that status in the music world of the 20th century and even far less in the 21st. It's goes to show that well though out, well crafted music that is meant for the heart and mind is truly timeless indeed. This compilation is 20 plus years in the making and I'm so thrilled that one of the greatest musicians/producers of our modern era Alan Wilder took the bold steps to bring this to fruition. It had to be a difficult task, no doubt, since Talk Talk is one of the most misunderstood and under appreciated bands ever, yet crosses and fuses so many musical sensibilities together so successfully. The bands and musicians that are represented here on this compilation are great in themselves, yet they managed to take an extra step to encapsulate the essence of what this great band achieved and was all about….years ahead of their time! There are so many great tracks on this compilation that it's hard to single one out to analyse properly, and anyway everyone who decides to pick this up will have their own take and opinion of the music presented here. In closing, if you never heard Talk Talk or have heard of them and love them pick this up! You will not be disappointed! For the newcomers to this great band, after you purchase this compilation you must….and I mean must pick up "The Colour of Spring", "Spirit of Eden", and "Laughing Stock". It's that important….Peace.

Missing something.

I love Talk Talk. If there is one band I would like to reunite and make new music, it would be them. This compilation is remarkable with a wide range of singers and musicians lending their talents to tell the Talk Talk story. That being said, there is no Mark Hollis and for that reason alone, this compilation comes up lacking for me. His voice was the sound of Talk Talk for me.

Tribute Talk Talk music is better than no Talk Talk at all

Charlie 100… you should do some research to see what Talk Talk was, and became. The forgettable music you refer to came from their first album, which they didn't even like the production of. As they developed, they took control of their direction, and all of these songs but one ("?") are Talk Talk originals. Call them post-rock if you must, but Talk Talk redefined a genre and became inspirational to other bands, whose sound you still hear today. Alaska and Halloween's remake is the single standout on this collection, but all of them are listenable tributes. There's no duplicating the originals, though.
