What do you mean - did they do a captain beef heart on it and live in a house for a year or something?

I was introduced to Talk Talk by a friend who was working with an engineer on the "Spirit of Eden" sessions...

I'd seriously suggest googling it because it's one serious experiment in studio methodology! Sounds like the most intense few months of everyone involved's lives...

Also a fan of talk talk - try Mark hollis's solo album - very chilled, different, very nice.

Massive fan!! Love "Laughing Stock" and "Spirit of eden" plus Mark Hollis. I also love the song "It's getting late in the evening".

yes, one more fan here. i stumbled across the late albums in the mid-90ies and could not believe it.
i`m not sure if jeff is directly influenced by them but they are soulmates for sure. there has been a interesting documentation about how "the laughing stock" was recorded in the "jazzthetik", a german magazine.
it took months in one of the most expensive studios in the world...no compressors or limiters were used...
definitely a masterpiece. i still use track 2 to check p.a. sytems.

http://users.cybercity.dk/~bcc11425 is probably the most informative one.

do you guys know a website for Talk Talk?

RE: Talk Talk | from jwAug 28 2005 - 17:25

"spirit of eden" and "laughing stock" are two of the most beautiful albums ever made, as far as i'm concerned. the eponymous mark hollis solo album is pretty great as well. so much music seems to forget or ignore just how powerful silence can be, and how tired the same old verse-chorus-verse structures have become.

there's a quote from mark hollis that sums it up nicely: "before you play two notes, learn how to play one note -- and don't play one note unless you've got a reason to play it."

Over the past year I have found myself intensely intertwined with Talk Talk's "Laughing Stock." I hear many similarities between Talk Talk and Idaho, mainly because both make awe-inspiringly beautiful and touching music, but they also share a similar feel and lushness as well. Has Jeff talked publicly about being influenced by Talk Talk? I definitely feel they have had some level of inspiration on his music. How many other late-era Talk Talk fans are on here? Anyway, I'd be interested...
