Notes:
The sole solo album by former Talk Talk frontman Mark Hollis, released on January 26, 1998. Despite being released as a solo album by Hollis, it was originally intended to be credited to Talk Talk, under the name "Mountains of the Moon."

An early promotional CD-R retains both of these features; an early promotional cassette also retains the original title, but uses the finalized release's attribution of the album to Hollis alone.

I own the RP, purchased a sealed copy only last week. The reviews of that pressing I have to admit, were very worrying. However, it’s perfect in every way. No issues, no pops, no crackles, just sweet minimal music and Mr Hollis superb voice. I’m so glad I gambled, I feel for those that don’t have a perfect pressing of this album, it is truly superb and pure genius.

Opened and played. It’s actually playing as I’m typing, guess the gamble paid off. No issues at all, none! No pops, crackles, no back ground noise, just the sweet minimal sound of precious music and Mr Hollis vocals thats all. The record is sat on a technics SL1210 and the rest I won’t bore you with. I feel for those who have been unfortunate, but that’s life! You know the script!

Whoever comes here know this, but I have to say it out loud in public once: This is by far one of the most powerful records I ever listened to. Unbelievable music! If you've never listened to this, what do you even do with your life?

I have this week purchased a sealed copy, fingers crossed it is OK. I have my doubts but you pay your money you take your choice. I will let you know later this week.

Thanks for everything dear Mark - I still remember a Talk Talk concert, August 1986: mesmerizing, soulful, heartening.
Be in Peace and please keep on shining.

I think the prices just rose about 50% overnight. Death sells, etc.
