What a way to end the Talk Talk era. I am still thankful to them for releasing their two final gems.

Both minimalist and prog: quite an achievment! And it still sound fresh and modern. Fantastic

It's "it's my life" completely deconstructed. "it's my life" free-jazzed. Very subtle music.

One of the most mysterious and fascinating records I've ever heard. From usage of silence and uncertainty to the religious undertones in the lyrics. This is what happens when you let a man have full freedom to use his imagination and creativity in the music.

First listen: Somehow super musically intriguing and boring at the same time.

Probably needs and deserves a re-listen.

A slow-burner, maybe overly jazzy at times, in a way that tries the patience. But repeated listen will reward the patient listener. Put it on with the lights dimmed while sipping merlot or cabernet. You'll be glad you did.

One of my most truly cherished albums. I have an emotional connection to this album unlike almost any other, I don't like to listen to it very often as it requires so much attention and the associations I make with it can be a little too intense. It feels designed to take you to places you thought you'd forgotten about.
