5 stars Alongside Talk Talk's other post-rock work, Laughing Stock, Spirit of Eden is perhaps one of the most unique--not to mention otherworldly--pieces of music of the last 50 years. Though it has gone (generally) unnoticed by the record-buying public at large, it still remains a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece. I've only had the pleasure of enjoying this album for 6 months or so--I've owned Laughing Stock for a little over a year--and it was only after 5 or more listens that I was finally able to appreciate Spirit of Eden for what it is. As with most musical masterpieces there are almost no dull moments here (with the exception of the last 2 or 3 minutes of Wealth) and even the silence in between tracks adds to the quiet power of this album. I must truly say that these six songs capture the spirit of Eden in a way no other album has done before or since.
