Prog Reviewer
3 stars Mostly a fan-only release. Those who look for PROGGYNESS in TALK TALK's debut will be disappointed. Nothing wrong - a solid 80s new wave/synth-pop stuff with hits like "Talk Talk" (a catchy one!Like it!) and "The Party's Over" (good ballad). Don't look for guitars here, and don't stuck to primitive rhythms and cliches - this is not Prog, I'm telling you (though one may notice a similarity between early mainstream Neo-Prog bands and this album) ! Nevertheless it's a very good and nostalgic (though I ain't belong to 80s spiritually - I was 4 when they ended!) record, recommended to that era fans. I've already experienced later TALK TALK albums, and they're certainly closer to what one may call Experimental Pop Music, but this one deserves to be heard too - but beware, this is NOT PROG !!!
