1 stars Talk Talk was for me one of the very few bands in the eighties who succeeded in producing acceptable, if not very good music that blended perfectly in that era of poppy electronics and synthesizers. Their first three albums are still very listenable, albeit that many prog fans fuind them too poppy. The ratings for these albums are not too good on this site while 'The spirit of Eden' gets a very high score. And I really don't know why.

I have been trying to listen to 'Spirit of Eden' a couple of times, simply because I used to like Talk Talk. But the total absence of melody, of inspired musical ideas, of attractive hooks or solos makes this album awful. I really can't find anything attractive in it. It's quite simply a long experimental jam that for me should not have been recorded at all, let alone been put on cd. But o.k., my opinion is clearly not what most prog lovers think. Yet I find it important to rate this album with 1 star.
