Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden, released in 1988, is a seminal album in the realm of experimental rock. It’s an introspective and haunting work that features atmospheric, jazz-influenced arrangements, with sparse instrumentation that allows for Hollis’ emotive and haunting vocals to shine through. The album marked a departure from the band’s previous more commercially-oriented sound, but it remains a timeless and influential work, continuing to inspire and captivate listeners. With its complex compositions and ethereal ambience, Spirit of Eden is a must-listen for fans of innovative and genre-defying music.
