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, jazz, ambient, dub, and classical music.
In 1987 Mark Hollis and his band Talk Talk went into the studio and a year later emerged with an album like no other, an atmospheric, emotional and sonic masterpiece. This is the story of Spirit of Eden. A load of crap that hinted to the fact that marketing for the album was not forthcoming, and what the label and the band wanted was to part ways pronto, which they eventually did before the next and last album. When Mark Hollis talked about the album upon its release he said: It’s certainly a reaction to the music that’s around at the moment, ‘cos most of that is shit.
If only Talk Talk’s record label felt the same way. What if the massive EMI corporation had known that when Talk Talk delivered the masters to Spirit of Eden in the spring of 1988, the record would be a once and future marvel of pop music, the nexus into which jazz and minimalism poured and out of which a new post-rock flowed. 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. Acrimony between the band and EMI festered into a court battle that ended with Talk Talk parting ways with the label and securing a contract with Polydor for what would end up being their final album, 1991’s Laughing Stock.
This was not what Talk Talk had in mind and after more than a year of recording they presented the new material to the completely shocked label who didn't really know how to market such an album. Spirit Of Eden features a distinct mix of rock, jazz, classical, and even some wonderful ambient music. There is nothing better than listening to this album on a rainy Sunday afternoon since it really sets a great mood for the day and after that you're free to go about your day feeling refreshed and ready for the next working week.
Talk Talk were given complete control over recording. Engineer Phill Brown said: It was very, very psychedelic. We had candles and oil wheels, strobes going, sometimes just total darkness in the studio. You’d get totally disoriented, no daylight, no tight frame. The album and the 1991 follow-up Laughing Stock would go down as big influences to the genre post-rock. Spirit of Eden Q&A.
