Spirit Of Eden
the bands unprecedented breakthrough, a musical & emotional catharsis of immense power.
compare ‘spirit of eden’ with any other previous release in the talk talk catalogue, & it's almost impossible to believe it's the work of the same band. exchanging electronics for live, organic sounds & rejecting structure in favour of mood & atmosphere, drawing instead on ambient textures, jazz-like arrangements, & avant-garde accents. for all of their intricacy & delicate beauty hollis' oblique lyrics speak to themes of loss & redemption with understated grace, & his hauntingly poignant vocals evoke wrenching spiritual turmoil tempered with unflagging hope. a singular musical experience.
