3 stars The early Talk Talk albums contain a few stand-out gems, but they also tend to have a great deal of lesser tracks as well.

Such A Shame and It's My Life are two true Talk Talk classics and there isn't really much more to say about them since you've probably already quite familiar with these compositions! Having said that there are a few other nice moments like the songs Does Caroline Know? and Tomorrow Started but I personally think that they work a lot better in their stripped down versions on the live recording called London 1986.

Unfortunately all is not hunky dory with It's My Life since it also features some extremely dated material like It's You and Call In The Night Boy which make this album pretty average to say the least. The album barely fits into the good, but non-essential category although the highlights definitely manage to spare it from a complete disaster.

***** star songs: Such A Shame (5:43) It's My Life (3:54)

**** star songs: Dum Dum Girl (3:52) Renée (6:23)

*** star songs: Tomorrow Started (5:59) The Last Time (4:24) Does Caroline Know? (4:41) It's You (4:42)
