3 stars Interesting to see that there is not a review of A Natural History as this is one one of those rare compilation albums that actually works. OK, it excludes anything off the last Laughing Stock album but in all sincerity it would have been hard to consider a selection from it anyways due to it's even more obscure and minimalist soundscapes as wonderful as they are. A Natural History shares everything most accessible from Talk Talk up to Spirit Of Eden. The best tracks would have to be the live version of ' Tomorrow's Started', ' Give It Up' and ' I Believe In You'. Overall though a very polished album which is hard to come by with compilations. Recommended for anyone wanting to get to know Talk Talk a little bit more.

4 stars As noted, "A Natural History" is an excellent compilation from Talk Talk that actually works. Considered a "synth band", Talk Talk were greater than sum of their parts. It also shows their progression from an arty New Wave band more in touch with Japan than Duran Duran to a pioneer of "Post Rock" which includes "I Believe In You" and "Desire" from the LP _Spirit Of Eden_ ...which are the highlights of that LP from 1988. For their masterpiece, prog.rockers on this site should seek out _Laughing Stock_ from 1991.

3 stars Natural History: The Very Best Of Talk Talk is a best of album from Talk Talk. Talk Talk is one of those bands on Prog Archives that have one leg in the progressive camp and one in the more commercial camp. The two first albums from Talk Talk are intelligent new wave synth pop while their their third album The Colour of Spring began their journey into experimentation. Itīs a very interesting album even though itīs still very commercial. Their fourth and fifth albums are the most progressive albums from the band. Very minimalistic yet elaborate arrangements and very subtle almost subdued vocals from frontman and bandleader Mark Hollis are some of the ingredients on those two albums. Talk Talk work a lot with structures in the songs on those albums. This best of album includes songs from their first four albums which are also the most accessible ones.

The early synth pop years is represented by the first six tracks. My Foolish Friend must be a single track. Itīs not on any of the original albums. Nice early song that one. The five other early tracks are chosen wisely as they are definitely the best from the two first albums The Partyīs Over and Itīs My Life. The Colour of Spring is represented here with four tracks which shows very well the popularity of that album while the last two tracks are from the fourth album Spirit of Eden. This is in fact a very good representation of Talk Talkīs career up til then. Here on Prog Archives there are two live songs on the list, but they are not on my copy of the album.

The musicianship is very good if you didnīt already know.

The production varies as the first couple of albums havenīt got as interesting a production as the later tracks. All songs are well produced though.

Even though Talk Talkīs last album Laughing Stock is not represented on this best of collection itīs still a very good overview and well worth 3 stars. If youīre curious about how Talk Talk sounds this is a good introduction to their music. Just be sure to get their best album Laughing Stock as well.
