Editorial Reviews

Talk Talk were one of the most innovative and original British bands of the eighties. They enjoyed a string of successful albums and singles both in the UK and right across Europe. 1986 was the band's only appearance at Montreux and caught them at the height of their success. With a set list packed with hit singles and lead singer / main songwriter Mark Hollis' charismatic performance they delivered an outstanding concert that draws a great response from the packed Swiss crowd.

I have been waiting for a "complete" live show from Talk Talk for a long time, the wait was worth it....I have some audio clips from this show, but, having the full on video experience and being able to actually watch the band play songs like "It's You" & "I Don't Believe In You" as well as all of the other songs make for an incredible show. Talk Talk has been one, if not my favorite band for a long time now with Spirit Of Eden being my fave album. It's really sad seeing all of the 80's bands getting back together and recording & touring and knowing that Talk Talk will never be one of those bands....Get this DVD!!! You won't regret it....

I'm really not a big on concerts in general. They're too hit and miss. It too often seems like something is wrong that spoils the effect. Give me a studio album any day.

But not with this DVD. I didn't know anything about Talk Talk until I saw a portion of this DVD on Cool TV. Good grief, what an "album". Interesting melodies, nicely arranged. This is a collection of songs that will last for years.

The band is clearly having fun, they are completely in sync. None of musicians gets a fit of ego: there aren't any of those "drum solos" where you can get a drink or go to the bathroom, full well knowing you're not going to miss anything - you're gonna have hit Pause.

Good sound quality... on and on and on...

I've been reviewing concerts for magazines around the world for decades. I've been to literally several hundred concerts, and probably own in the region of 500 music DVDs. I've even seen Talk Talk a couple of times back home in England. This concert does not have the best stage set. It doesn't have the best light show - actually it doesn't really have one. It's not in HD. Some of the camera angles and shots aren't the best. The sound isn't top notch. And yet, this is undoubtedly in my top 10 live music DVDs of all time.
If you're a Talk Talk fan, you likely already own this. If you're not, this is a sadly too short concert of a band in full flow. I'd argue this isn't Talk Talk at its creative peak, and the players individually aren't in the 'virtuoso' vein, but sometimes bands simply have one of those nights where it all comes together. This is one of those nights. The playing is good, the togetherness is obvious and the quality of the songs is exceptional.
It fits neatly into the 80s pop, almost prog vein, with hairstyles to match. The music, however, is timeless. Talk Talk is great in the studio. This live DVD takes it to a different level. Duran Duran might be an easy comparison, but they never left it out there like this.
It's pointless picking out individual tracks as it's strong from start to finish but, as an example, Life's What You Make It, a minor hit in the UK, is a great song. This version more than grooves, the thumping bass, incessant percussion and drums, and Hollis' urgent voice combine to put the band - and the viewer - in the zone where time stands still and you're lost in the music. This cooks. The whole DVD is of similar quality. The only 'complaint' is that, on a song such as this, they could have gone into an extended jam and kept this going for 10 minutes.

Is WOW enough after all the other reviews? I hope so. I've always appreciated Talk Talk's music, but this concert video is blow-me-away incredible. I don't know what else to say. When I watch this DVD I am mesmerized, I cry and I am enraptured. If you ever liked Talk Talk even the slightest bit, this DVD will BLOW YOU AWAY!

This product far surpassed my expectations! The only way it could be better is to package it with a Delorian so you could actually go back in time and be there in person! The talent, passion and dedication that makes Talk Talk so special can be easily seen. Take special note of how spent the guys look when done. Last, but not least, pay attention to Marks (gorgeously sexy) footwear.

I always knew Talk Talk was a great band...on record at least, because I had never heard any live material...and this confirms that they were not only a great band in the studio, but on the stage was well.

The highlights are many...you could say each song is a highlight, it's that good...and, upon first view, IT'S YOU and CALL IN THE NIGHT BOY are the two that seemed to hit me that hardest.

This is an incredible performance, and if you had even a smidge of interest in this band, this will cement their appeal in no uncertain terms.

A great DVD and well worth every cent you pay for it.

We don't normally buy much of physical media anymore. Books, magazines, movies, music -- nowadays they are all available for digital download, rent, or from some streaming service. However, this DVD is a rare gem which absolutely deserves owning since it will be watched and listened over and over again. And the mini poster (size of three DVD boxes) you get with it is also a nice addition.

Incidentally, I stumbled on some clips from this DVD on YouTube (obviously, in much lower quality) and that's how I learned that it was out. I just got it from Amazon and have been watching it over the holidays. I recommend you check it on YouTube first to realize how good it is and then come back and buy the DVD -- you won't regret it!

Talk Talk actually sounds much better live than in the studio, especially the material from the first two albums (studio versions, although also good, used electronic heavily; on the stage they used more classical instruments including some exotic ones). It's also very possible that their music is more much suited for this type of performance. However, we cannot also underestimate the genius of Hollis, Webb and Harris who boldly extended their music far beyond synthesizers and "radio-friendly" tunes to a really deep musical art and a much deeper experience and, more importantly, were able to perform it flawlessly live on stage. Mark Hollis' amazing vocals are simply perfect, it really makes most of the modern singers laughable when you listen their attempts to sing live or use various voice enhancers and pitch correctors.

Another very interesting thing is that they performed 11 songs and said good night.
