Spirit of Eden is the fourth studio album by English band Talk Talk, released in 1988 on Parlophone Records. The songs were written by vocalist Mark Hollis and producer Tim Friese-Greene and the album was compiled from a lengthy recording process at London's Wessex Studios between 1987 and 1988. Often working in darkness, the band recorded many hours of improvised performances that drew on elements of rock, blues, jazz, ambient, dub, and classical music.

Talk Talk’s six-year career as a commercially viable band was, at that very moment, dead in the water. Which was odd, because Hollis and Friese-Greene were convinced Spirit of Eden was going to sell four million copies. When they finished the psychotic, 11-month recording process, they were sure this interior, fully realized album would go platinum just like their third album, 1986’s The Colour of Spring-a fragile, autumnal collection of synth-pop shaded with knotty impressionism. Spirit of Eden was the great inhale of religious feeling, one rock and pop music had been expelling for years and years. The thrill and stasis of a held breath carry the album from beginning to end. Take my freedom, Hollis sings on the closing hymn, as the band uses its last bit of thrust before drifting away.

Spirit Of Eden is a music studio album recording by TALK TALK (Crossover Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1988 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. So Talk Talk embarked on a totally non commercial direction with Spirit Of Eden and immediately it yielded their best album IMO of their entire catalogue.

Listen free to Talk Talk – Spirit of Eden (The Rainbow, Eden and more). Spirit of Eden is the fourth album by the English New wave band Talk Talk, released in 1988 on Parlophone records. The album found neither critical acclaim nor commercial success on release but has since become a cult favourite. The songs were mostly written by vocalist Mark Hollis and producer Tim Friese-Greene and the album was compiled from a lengthy recording process at London's Wessex Studios between 1987 and 1988.

Alright let's talk about Talk Talk. This band gets a lot of hype, but I'm going to try and look beyond that here. Yes, it's possible that Spirit of Eden is the first ever Post-Rock album, and yes I know it was followed up by their critically acclaimed "master-work", Laughing Stock. There's a lot more to it than those basic talking points.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm), Import. Talk Talk Format: Vinyl. Back to front, Spirit of Eden is an absolutely masterpiece. There's not a singled wasted note on the entire album. I made a few of my (very generous and permissive) friends listen to this album with no interruptions, and they call came away completely transfixed. This is nothing short of an stone-cold masterpiece. The vinyl pressing sounds fantastic.
