Talk Talk, "The Colour Of Spring" / 1986 Review by: Javier
Considered by many to be the band's best album, "The Colour Of Spring" is arguably the group's most accessible work. Building on the progression into acoustic music brought on by "In My Life", TCOS features fantastic organ work by Stevie Winwood (especially on "Living In Another World and "I Don't Believe In You") and guitar by session ace Robbie McIntosh. The songs here are longer, arranged and produced meticulously, but with an infusion of soul that most eighties music lacked. Just like "In My Life" suggested an evolution on the style of the band, here "April 5th" and "Chameleon Day" foreshadow what Talk Talk eventually became. This album is the best introduction to the band. Rating ***** out of 5
