It still beggars belief that this record was made by the same people who made 'Laughing Stock'. This is Talk Talk in full throes of their early 'new romantic' sound. Having supported Duran Duran there is a certain similarity in sound but even when in synth pop excess mode Talk Talk were clever and literate. Witness the hit singles 'Today' and 'Talk Talk'.

I like this album a lot. It stands as one of the better 80's synth-pop records, but goes beyond the rest of the pack with deep orchestration and a cerebral sound. Just three instruments here; bass, drums, and synths, no guitar like A Flock Of Seagulls or Duran Duran. Mark Hollis' voice is like another instrument unto itself; dark, brooding, and almost sedately muffled into the background. "Talk Talk" is pure New Romantic synth-pop. If you haven't heard this record before give it a shot. You'll be surprised at it's depth and complexity of sound.
