Talk Talk’s commercially disastrous, cult classic Spirit of Eden is an absolute must listen for any music fan. Recorded over three years in “an endlessly blacked-out studio, an oil projector in the control room, strobe lighting and five 24-track tape-machines synced together” the resulting album is a deeply moving and spiritual trip with elements of jazz, dub, classical, and ambient coming together to form a singular, hauntingly beautiful sound that would inspire countless musicians and build the foundation for post-rock.
