A great album as a whole, Inheritance might slightly be my favourite.

Tough call... it is a solid album throughout. I'll go with The Rainbow, though. Probably Desire second.

Eden.
I love when Mark's vocals build in intensity during the chorus...

What an amazing album, probably the best ever post rock album.
 
It's so difficult to choose one part of the album over another, but I'll go with the amazing Desire as it hasn't got a vote so far.

Oh, "The Rainbow", no contest. 

Promptly blown away with that track.

Quite possibly my favorite album of all time.  Check out this video mashup of I Believe in You.

Every Talk Talk album was a giant leap from the one before. Laughing Stock is their best work.

Eden is the one I have been most excited about. And I've been hearing Eden a lot from a playlist that I included it in. Now I'm more keen to hear the other songs again to refresh my memory. They all have their qualities.
 
But I'll go for my initial reaction and vote for Eden, even if I'm slightly tired of it. Nice feeling, the drum groove is cool, nice tom tom sound.

Great album! Voted for The Rainbow, which left one of the best first impressions in my recent music listening.

"The Rainbow." That moment of "calm between the storm" melts me every time I hear it. The entire first side is brilliant, of course, but I think that "Wealth" is an absolutely, achingly achieved, underrated gem, so that'd be my second.
