Biography

With the exception of a handful of common threads -- chief among them the plaintive vocals and haunting lyrics of frontman Mark Hollis -- there is little to suggest that the five studio LPs that make up the Talk Talk oeuvre are indeed the work of the same band throughout. After beginning their career with records virtually epitomizing the new wave era that spawned them, the British group never ... Read more in Amazon's Talk Talk Store

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This band encompasses a unique sound from the 80's New Wave era; There music is upbeat, varied and fresh across the board with comparisons to Ultravox, Depeche Mode and Camouflage. This CD is a solid grouping of their best hits but I would have liked there to have been more songs on this disc. This CD is worthy of purchase for anyone who likes 80's New Wave music.

Like some of the beat to various songs; especially like the sounds of the piano playing and drumming. Vocals are clear and understandable. D. Ritter, Pa.

Just an average CD. The type where you rip a few songs and then dump it. Probably will never listen to it again (too much other good music).
