    For a late '90's CD, this sounds pretty amazing.
    I also have the 2019 vinyl pressing which is pretty good too but if you've got the right DAC, there is plenty of analog like atmospheric detail and warmth on this CD to transport you into this incredible recording....

      Talk Talk was a very special rarity. from album to album a creative progression and on the top where was no further way to go, disbanded. after some years Mark Hollis put the crown on it with his sole solo album. very very rare - if not unique - in the history of pop

        Best album ever for me. Masterpiece. Thank you Mark Hollis!

          Strange, No issues what-so-ever. Haven't found any pops or clips. Perfect as CD should be.

            Such a poor pressing of great album.but i am glad that i have it.

              Had 2 copies so far, recording is great
              Pressing in full of pops & clips
              Completely spoils the experience

                Can anyone comment on what the best CD master for this album is?
                • lemox's avatar
                  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.

                    So sad about Mark Hollis' passing - way too early! Shine on, Mark. You will always be remembered!

                      R.I.P. Mark Hollis. He was a musical genius! ..The solo album from 1998 is a masterpiece.
