Talk, Talk, Talk
's "Pretty in Pink" may have spawned the hideous film of the same name, but one listen to this trashy milestone will prove all is forgiven. Richard Butler and the boys made an instant punk rock classic with Talk
before promptly becoming a parody of themselves on future releases. Powerhouses like the raging "Into You like a Train," "All of This and Nothing," the frank "I Just Wanna Sleep with You," and sax-twisted "Dumb Waiters" retain the Velvets/Bowie fixation of the Furs' debut, but temper it with John Ashton's huge guitar riffs and Butler's slightly less atonal singing. The Furs would never sound this glorious or this raw again. --Michael Ruby
