Ok, this is a seriously stellar album. Really. I Don't Believe In You, Give It Up, Living In Another World, and Life's What You Make It are all some of the best tracks that they had done up to this point in their career, and they are done in such a graceful and artful manner, belying what is to come. This is the best album that I would categorize under the 80s Pop/Dance-Rock/Art-Pop/etc genre that I can't fully define but know when I hear it.

One of the only dance albums that I have found that I truly enjoy. It doesn't quite reach the same artistic heights that Spirit of Eden and especially Laughing Stock do, but it a much more fun listen all around. I think the highlight for me has got to be "I Don't Believe in You".

Fantastic album. These guys were clever musicians, from the opening drum machine which blends with the slightly out of tune children's choir, the touches of harmonica throughout and subtle Mellotron washes I hear something different with every listen. The opener to side two (I have the vinyl) is very upbeat exuding a warmth which fills the room, even on a cold day!

One of my favourite albums, subsequent Talk Talk albums are not to my taste at all.......

Some of the songs have a likeable, timeless feel, but some of it drags.

I didn't think this album was bad at all! Worth a listen for sure. Kist not my personal taste. Regardless the frist track (and several others) have this captivation about them. The bass is really good. Just when the album seems like it's repeating itself the next track picks it up with an interesting change up. Not bad at all.

I think this album can be a good starting point for people are want to get into Talk Talk. Can help set people up for the next two records or maybe give them another chance if they had a hard time getting into them.
