    This arrived via Music Magpie this morning. Brand new, sealed copy, and less than on offer here (and no p&p either)

    Two tracks in, and so far, excellent interpretations. On a par with This Mortal Coils' Filigree And Shadow (which remains one of my favourite cover version albums of all-time). If 'discomputersale' thinks this is boring, then he or she needs to revisit the last two Talk Talk albums, as the feel and production of some of these covers is definitely akin with Tim Friese-Greenes' involvement. Uncork a bottle of cheap red plonk and do nothing else

      This is an excellent record but might take a few listens to begin to appreciate. It would be disappointing if potential listeners are put off by the 'boring' comment of the first reviewer. I purchased this CD back in 2016 and it has been on my favorites pile ever since.
      • discomputersale's avatar
        30 covers and they are all boring. Fortunately more imaginative people we're also inspired by Talk Talk. The only thing you want to do when listening to this is to put on a record by Talk Talk themselves.
