Talk Talk – Spirit of Eden
LTW ‘overlooked at the time, Talk Talk have become massively influential…’
Nigel Humberstone…Regardless of how much of a tortured process this work evolved from and however difficult Mark Hollis was as an individual, this album is a timeless reminder of music created without compromise or care for commerce. It is the nearest one can get to a work of musical art.
