I just stumbled upon Talk Talk’s 1988 album Spirit Of Eden and it has been one of the most rewarding listenings I’ve had in a long time. This is definitely an album Tom Yorke was listening to when he was just starting out as a singer and his band was still called On A Friday.
This album is like a good jazz record: it’ll test your patience, but it’s worth it.
Here’s “Eden”, one of the more accessible tracks off of Spirit Of Eden.
