4.0 out of 5 stars The Start of Something Great Feb. 21 2008
Format:Audio CD
I followed Talk Talk from the early 80's and on, however, I did not really find them to be anything overly interesting until this album was released. I certainly liked previous individual singles like It's My Life, Such A Shame and Dum Dum Girl, but, Colour Of Spring was change. There were wonderful pounding danceable keyboard based songs such as Life's What You Make It and Living In Another World that had strong radio play. But April 5th, I Don't Believe In You and Chameleon Day were revealing where the Talk Talk sound was going to go over the next few years. Other great songs are Happiness Is Easy and Give It Up. This album has more variety of sounds than the later 2 releases, which ensured that it had a more mainstream appeal. However, this is still a challenging album that rewards with time.

There were great b-side singles released on the 12" versions of the Colour of Spring singles, most notably Pictures of Bernadette and It's Getting Late In The Evening (a truly beautiful, moving, masterful song that should not have been just a b-side to Life's What You Make It).

This CD to me is the first to get of any Talk Talk albums. While I prefer Spirit Of Eden (one of the greatest albums of the 80's) over anything else they did, Colour of Spring is still a wonderful album that has never tired for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommendation Goes Wright! Feb. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
To the reviewer who said this album was mostly unknown outside the circle of Talk Talk aficionados, you're in luck! I hadn't even HEARD of the band until I saw this album mentioned in an interview of Rick Wright, Pink Floyd's keyboardist. On a lark I decided to give it a try--and sure enough, his taste proved extraordinary.
"The simplicity of the songs and Mark Hollis's voice make this album just incredible," Mr. Wright had explained to Record Collector magazine. "The first tune, 'Happiness Is Easy', says it all--nothing but a bass, a snare and a weird chord. That's Talk Talk all over, great songs and simplicity with a twist ... Why does it touch me? Hard to say, but it's got the feelgood factor, which all my favourite records have..."
From the second I heard the opening to "Happiness is Easy", I knew every word of Mr. Wright's was dead-on accurate. "Colour of Spring" is indeed a most appropriate title--I immediately felt a sense of gentle, uplifting power coming from the music. Although pensive, sometimes even sad in the lyrics at times, he does not go overboard with it. Mr. Hollis' voice becomes like a musical instrument in its own right, mingling perfectly with the open, never overpowering musical arrangements.
Particularly striking about this album are the Hammond organ played by Steve Winwood, which floats gently in the background and provides each track is atmosphere. The acoustic guitar and piano seem to dance gracefully in and out of the songs. Overall, Colour of Spring is incredibly soothing, but without putting the listener to sleep. This is the perfect album to unwind from a stressful day, and definitely a recommendation worth listening to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing ablum Nov. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
I originally heard of talk talk when I was in France on a summers work stint. At a party one night some guy put on a song called Talk Talk, a single from one of their previous abums. I was blown away by the song and enquired abot the band. When I was back in Ireland and went into the record store to buy the single the lady didn't have the ablum that had the song Talk Talk but recommended their most recent ablum which was this one. I bought it and have had it for about what seems like 10 years. I can definitively say that it is one of those ablums that I always come back to. I have listened to it with other people. Their initial reaction is "what the f... is this" but I can tell you that after a few listens they are usually hooked.
I would put this in my top five albums- buy it, go into a dark room, lie back and just enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars This album is simply a must have. Jan. 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Time and time again I'v returned to this to get my interest back in music. After periods of listening to new wishy washy over hyped releases I get turned off to having a night of music listening. One of my favourite ways to renew my enthusiasm is to put this on the cd player.It never fails and I never get tired of it. Its an unusual mix of pop/jazz/rock that is totally unique to this group.Sound wise my red book cd isnt the best but the music IS. For recording it gets 80% and music 96%. There is an SACD version out but the price is steep but must be worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for your collection Dec 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'll keep it short. I bought the TAPE in 1986 in Kodiak Alaska as a blind purchase. I was really lucky. I have been listing for 17 years now and needed to replace the tape with the CD. You won't be disapointed.
