Product Description

Product Description

Import remastered pressing of their 1982 debut album. Features the hit singles 'Talk Talk' & 'Today'. EMI.

Amazon.ca

Few could've predicted the flowery, experimental path that UK art-pop ensemble Talk Talk (and later, a solo singing Mark Hollis) would take in its long, colorful career. Songs would lengthen, keyboard-plush arrangements would thicken like trellised ivy, and the group's initial hit-single schematics--so evident on this nicely textured debut album, in definitive cuts like "Talk Talk"--would get lost in the orchestral shuffle. Which is not to say that this nugget from '82 isn't crucial listening. Hollis has one of those inimitable, almost otherworldly voices that sound great in any musical framework. Even in this only slightly cerebral setting. --Tom Lanham

Mark Hollis took Talk Talk from synthpop to art rock during the 1980's and this debut album was the most electronic of them all. 80's fans will recognize the first track, "Talk Talk," the first single to get air play in America before "It's My Life" hit the top 40 a few years later. The track is a powerhouse dance classic still enjoyed today. Other fast numbers to enjoy include "Today" and "Another World" while the title track evokes a darker, more mellow side of the band.
Mark Hollis could give Bryan Ferry a run for his money on vocals, which shine throughout the album. Fantastic synths take you back to 1981 in delight.
Talk Talk's second album, "It's My Life" is a perfect follow up to this album as a continuation of the electronic style. By the third album, the band matured even more including more acoustic instruments and guest musicians like Steve Winwood.
Fans of early 80's synthpop must give this a listen. Fans of Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry, Japan and Ultravox would also do well to give it a listen.
While I love most of Talk Talk's material, this album stands out as a clear favorite. Too bad Hollis has called it quits.

Esta es la mejor y más hermosa producción de TalkTalk, un trabajo hecho con un gran criterio y profesionalismo, es un album que siempre sonara a "futuro" por el buen uso de elementos electronicos mezclados magistralmente con elementos acusticos; definitivamente la increible voz de Mark Hollies le da es toque muy especial y que en gran parte definió el estilo de TalkTalk, yo tengo este Cd pero en la version "vinyl" y tiene un sonido excelente, es una producción "muy completa", es decir, no podria decir que una pieza es mejor que otra, todas las canciones son hermosas, desgarradoras, demoledoras, tiernas y sugestivas... es un disco indispensable para cualquier persona que este conectada con el Ambient, Techno & DownTempo, entonces cuando lo escuches te daras cuenta que bajo el "sol no hay muchas cosas nuevas", ahora existen muchas bandas que de alguna manera quedaron influencias por TalkTalk, por su belleza musical y lirica.... el arte de la portada es fenomenal..... Buy it!

Talk Talk is a group that defies conventional wisdom. This, their first outing, is an album that was derided as being not only derivative, but pretentious. Pretentious...yes. Self-absorbent...most certainly.
The beauty of Talk Talk however must be seen through the progression of their music in its entirety. Upon initial listening, this disc could defiantly be dismissed as a typical exercise in 80s synth-pop.
However, as time would have it, Talk Talk progressed as a band. With the ultimate departure from conventional pop wisdom that reared its welcome head during the group's last days, this presentation deserves a fresh look.
The truth is that the critics of this album missed something the first time. Upon second glance, this disc proves not only that Mark Hollis had an ultimate vision, but also that he charted it from the beginning.
Four fifths of this album is wonderfully indulgent. The other fifth is psychic...a demonstration of what was to come. Many believe that "Its My Life" was the first to showcase the future Talk Talk...this is inaccurate. This exercise showcases many elements that would be later found on subsequent releases.
While listening to this effort, one wonders if the group had their future vision with them all along...but was afraid to unleash their talent too early for fear of losing the opportunity to express the true "Nature" of their being.

The debut album for Talk Talk is a pop masterpiece and is a warm up for the beautiful music that followed it in later years. The sound is very much of the times with synth drums dominating the songs. What makes this album so special is the writing and the vocals of Mark Hollis. I've never heard anyone put so much emotion in a song. He very often sounds like a man on the verge of sheer breakdown. Yet it's powerful emotion. I still get chills when he sings in the closing lines of the title track: "take this punishment away lord, name the crime I'm guilty of." Pure heaven.
