Talk Talk: Spirit of Eden (Parlophone)
Betty Page, Record Mirror, 17 September 1988
ONCE UPON A TIME Talk Talk were a "pop" band, now they're a law unto themselves, unconstrained by narrow ideas of "what will sell". Lead man Mark Hollis and producer/co-writer Tim Friese-Greene have assembled an album which refuses to fit into any pigeonholes.
