A band so ahead of their time that their relative brevity might be considered equal parts triumph and tragedy. Perhaps they lived the perfect band life - short but always at the top of the game. I believe this album cemented their place in the pantheon. Although their previous 3 were nothing short of incredible, Talk Talk defined themselves as true artists with Sprit Of Eden and they never looked back. This album will continue to get better with each and every listen, decades beyond today.
