2 stars The thing with the latter Talk Talk albums and Mark Hollis solo album is that they lack the quintessential element of good music: melody. There is no melody in here, this is just a long and boring jam.

The funny thing is that their early stuff is really great. Yes, the pop stuff had textures and different layers of sound, not to mention the very good lyrics. But then something happened and they completely changed direction towards a big void. and the label people start using to define what they were doing: post-rock. I will not enter in the discussion of the existence of a genre like that, but if this is the way, so I prefer to rate this kind of "music" as post-melody.

Ambient music, meditation music, spiritual music? No, just plain uninspired and boring.
