I realize this thread is ancient, but I just wanted to say that I've just discovered Talk Talk (Color of Spring, Spirit of Eden), and man what have I missed!

Same here.
Thank you Dr. Teeth.

Although I have to say that I'm not yet that much into Spirit Of Eden. It might need a couple of listening sessions more.
The Colour Of Spring, however, is an amazing album. I can't get enough of that one at the moment.

it's weird.. a lot of people seem to think laughing stock is even better than spirit of eden, but i've never really been able to get into it.

maybe it's just whichever you hear first

I just noticed that The Colour Of Spring is 20 years old this month!

Well, I finally broke down and bought "Spirit of Eden" through Amazon.com. A $21 import, but, if it's any consolation, it's a remastered CD and "Laughing Stock," which I also bought, evens it out by only costing $8.

I'd say that "Spirit of Eden" is the superior album of the two, although I do enjoy both. I listened to some samples off of "The Colour of Spring," and I liked it enough that I think I'll get it soon.

Anyway, I'm thankful for having discovered music of such unexpected beauty. These albums are certainly timeless.

I don't think I was as impressed with it as most people are. Certainly pretty, and it probably inspired the whole post rock genre, but it makes me very sleepy.

Colour of Spring is as close to heaven as music is allowed to get

You better do, or else I'll bug you about it this Sunday. The whole day!

Indeed! No use mentioning standouts on that album, every song is exceptional.

I see that one always for 8 euro or less. It's certainly worth it, at any price.

just listened to it and it is a masterful album
need a couple of weeks at least to decide whether I prefer Spring or Eden


I do think all Eden fans should definitely check out Mark Hollis' self named album
it's a bit like an acoustic progression of Eden
