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.

Not as brilliant as, spirit of Eden, would be, still, the colour of spring, is a solid Talk Talk album with, life's what you make it, being the obvious standout. The rest isn't bad either, but I must admit I prefer the atmospheric intimacy of their next record. Still, very good.

The first rung on the ladder of increasingly sophisticated Talk Talk albums, occupying a cozy middle ground between synth-pop and experimentalism. If you're unfamiliar with this album, "Life's What You Make It" and "Give It Up" are great places to start exploring.

A melding of instruments and styles, it is an excellent album of finely crafted songs. An album that resonates with me.
