Talk Talk – Myrrhman

Talk Talk’s final 2 albums brings to mind a quote from A Clockwork Orange’s protagonist Alex Delarge “It was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh”. This, the opener from final work, 1992’s ‘Laughing Stock’ is a perfect demonstration of why it was applied here. Beautiful, haunting, discrete, and one man’s vision. Mark Hollis thankfully gave us more work with his sole solo album ‘Mark Hollis’; which could be seen as the final part of a trilogy. There is a lot of hype around the late-period Talk Talk, and it’s all warranted! So subtle that sometimes it’s barely there.
