I don't like the sequencing of the album, it is difficult to get a listening mood going when the bubblegum synthpop "Another Word" is stuck in between moody songs "Mirror Man" and "Candy". I would prefer something like:

Disco side (A): Talk Talk, Another Word, Hate, Today, It's Serious

Chill-out side (B): Mirror Man, Have You Heard The News?, The Party's Over, Candy

That aside, however much I dig their later art-rock outings this is still my favorite Talk Talk album, it is the foundation of their sound, and there are unbelievably good songs on show here like "Hate": rousing tribal synth-pop at it's utter best.

This sounds very different to the original UK cut. It's not as upfront, the vocals have way less impact, and there's significantly less top end. Beware!

Would someone add the dead wax info, please? Thank you!
