Talk Talk - Spirit Of Eden LP


Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

English art-pop legends Talk Talk’s classic albums The Colour of Spring (1986) and Spirit of Eden (1988) are being reissued on 180g heavyweight vinyl cut from the original analog master tapes, together with a DVD featuring the album delivered as a 96kHz/24 bit LPCM stereo mix. In addition, the accompanying DVDs for both albums also feature one extra bonus track. In the case of Spirit of Eden, included here is the B-side "John Cope."

Spirit of Eden is the transcendent fourth album from Talk Talk and it finds the band shelving the pop electronics in favor of more organic fare built largely around mood and atmosphere. Drawing on jazz and ambient influences, the album features six extended tracks dynamic in their space and warmth, impassioned majestically by the plaintive vocals of singer/songwriter Mark Hollis.

"Spirit of Eden has not dated, it's remarkable how contemporary it sounds, anticipating post-rock, The Verve and Radiohead. It's the sound of an artist being given the keys to the kingdom and returning with art." - The Guardian
