Talk Talk - Laughing Stock
BK | Near the Rocky Mountains | 01/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Probably the most beautiful rock CD I own, Talk Talk's LAUGHING STOCK is the swan song of the band who is credited for founding the post-rock genre. A marvelous thing about LAUGHING STOCK is that it doesn't sound like it was made in any particular decade; it is a truly timeless album. Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Green gathered some magnificent studio musicians recorded LAUGHING STOCK in much the same way as they did on the previous album Spirit of Eden. Highlights include the minimalistic opener "Myrrhman," "Ascension Day," and "After the Flood" with its quiet but powerful organ parts and slightly swinging drum beat. Along with SPIRIT OF EDEN, LAUGHING STOCK represents Talk Talk at their creative peak. This album still stubbornly holds its place as one of my top 10/desert-island discs."
