Post Rock - Talk Talk

Laughing Stock

Released on Jazz label Verve Records after their breakup with EMI, Talk Talk made a legendary record that defies description and is one of the best recordings I own. It's a dramatic dark, swirling introduction to a musical style that was few more years away from full-blown acceptance: post-rock. Recorded in 1991, it still sounds relevant in today's musical landscape. Amazingly the iTunes review is the only well written one on the web. "A work of staggering complexity and immense beauty". One of the greatest records of all time.


[Please listen to it on a real stereo, not your laptop... or wear headphones]
For us studio-heads there is interesting technical info on the recording here:
