After Andywedges' brilliant post of Talk Talks Singles collection and DVD set, here is their post rock masterpiece for a brilliant price.

Spirit of Eden is a 1988 album by the English band Talk Talk. It was written by Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Greene, and performed by numerous musicians using a diverse combination of instruments.

It is widely regarded as a masterpiece. In 2008, Alan McGee of the Guardian wrote: "Spirit of Eden has not dated; it's remarkable how contemporary it sounds, anticipating post-rock, The Verve and Radiohead. It's the sound of an artist being given the keys to the kingdom and returning with art."

The album emerged from a demanding recording process: often working in darkness, the band recorded many hours of improvised performances, edited them down heavily, then arranged the remaining pieces into an album using digital equipment. The end product includes elements of rock, jazz, classical, and ambient music. The album was released on the Parlophone record label, an imprint of EMI.

Critics often view Spirit of Eden as a departure from Talk Talk's previous albums. Compared to their 1986 hit The Colour of Spring, it was commercially unsuccessful. Many critics, however, praise the album and consider it influential to the post-rock movement of the 1990s.

In 2006, Q magazine placed the album at #31 in its list of "40 Best Albums of the '80s".

Few more TT albums at £2.99 here
Never ceases to amaze me when 'lesser known' bands attract appreciation. Respect to the HUKD music massive
Oh and heat added CB, this is THE best TT album (albeit very very closely followed by 'Laughing Stock')

Whilst this i regard as the best Talk Talk album, especially to listen to all the way through in one piece, I had a MRI Scan last year (all ok) and out of all the CDs I could have chose to take to listen to in the claustrophobic tunnel my head was in, I decided to listen to "The Colour Of Spring"

1st prize for the most unusual appreciative post I've heard in a while! Fair play to you and good to hear all went well.

A fantastic band,and a beautiful album.
Saw them at Norwich UEA in 87,with Mark Hollis swigging lager between each song,but the best gig I've ever been to.
